We have reduced our environmental impact on this product
26.6% of the shoe’s weight is eco-designed:
That's right, during the development process, we selected environmentally-friendly components:
- Upper (front of the shoe, tongue and top of the shoe): 100% recycled polyester
- Tongue lining and collar: 100 % recycled polyester
- Laces and loops: 100% recycled polyester
- Inner sole: 85% recycled polyurethane foam and 100% recycled polyester lining
- Outer sole: 30% recycled rubber
Resistant soles for walking trails
The sole’s design is the result of long research carried out in our labs. It is composed of a specific rubber formula which optimises grip and traction. We are systematically looking for the best compromise for walking on soft (e.g. forest paths) and stony (e.g. coastal paths) hiking trails.
When used on roads, this can lead to the premature wear of your boots and cause discomfort. They are not suitable for mountain walking.
Tested for durability and optimal resistance
Laboratory tests were conducted to test the following elements: tearing eyelets and straps, gluing, toxicology, UV resistance, abrasion resistance of outsole and upper components, accelerated ageing. These tests allow us to improve the quality of our products and prevent premature wear of our hiking shoes.
How to choose the size of my walking boots?
Try on both shoes, standing up, with the socks worn for hiking. Try on several models or sizes if necessary. Check two comfort points:
- the heel seating
- the front of the foot on a downward slope
Avoid any pressure points when fitting. Feel free to walk around to test the comfort and support. Gradually start using you shoes during your first few hiking trips to break them in.
What socks should you wear with the Quechua NH150 shoes?
These shoes are slightly breathable, but not enough to evacuate all humidity created by your perspiration. We advise you to choose Hike 100 Low or Mid socks: they contain moisture-absorbing cotton and have a reverse terry-knit construction under the sock that wicks moisture away from your foot. They are also high enough to protect your ankle from the shoe. It is an excellent combination to reduce the chance of blisters.
WHY CHOOSE RECYCLED POLYESTER?
By recycling plastic bottles or used fabrics to produce our polyester, we reduce the use of petrol-based resources while maintaining the material's quality and performance for your hikes.
