The grip of our soles is certified.
To be awarded certification, the shoes must pass laboratory tests to assess the grip rate (0.6 for this model) on different surfaces (Smooth, Rugged, Dry, Wet).
To validate these tests, we also assess the quality of our soles on the field, in the mountains, by a panel of young testers.
Which size should I select
For hiking, don't hesitate to get one size larger than your child's usual shoe size. This will ensure optimal comfort on the way down and prevent the toes from banging against the shoe. Tip: keep nails short and, before any descent, check that the Velcro and/or laces are properly fastened to prevent the foot from slipping forward in the shoe.
Allow children to try on both shoes, standing up, with the socks worn for hiking. Check two comfort points: the base of the heel and the front part of the foot going down. Avoid all pressure points when trying shoes on.
Gradually start using you shoes during your first few hiking trips to break them in.On the internet, you can print the outline and check the foot length: https://pdfcoffee.com/pedimetreuepdf-pdf-free.html
Removable insole for faster drying. It can also be replaced by an orthopaedic insole.
