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. Since requirements differ, we systematically seek the best compromise for hiking on off-road trails with loose ground, such as forest trails.
Designed for use on hiking trails
Our hiking boots are designed for use on hiking trails. Indeed, we choose the components of the sole and upper of our boots and test them to ensure that they are ideally suited to walking on loose trails (e.g. unpaved forest paths) or rocky trails (e.g. rocky coastal paths). Road use (tarmac) may lead to premature wear on your shoes and cause discomfort. They are not suitable for mountain walking.
We have reduced our environmental impact on this product
We have used more environmentally friendly components: - Upper, tongue and collar, laces and loops, lining of the insole: 100% recycled polyester
- Reinforced panels: 24% recycled polyester
- Outsole: 30% recycled rubber
These actions represent 26% of the weight of the shoe.
The use of recycled materials helps to reduce the depletion of resources by recycling end-of-life materials. Technical use and quality are guaranteed.
Tested for durability and optimal resistance
Laboratory tests were also 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 both boots on, standing up, wearing the socks you use 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 the store. Gradually start using you shoes during your first few hiking trips to break them in.
How to choose the size of my walking socks?
You need to choose the correct sock size for your feet to avoid any extra folds forming on the sock: these folds may form because the sock is too big and therefore there is too much material around your foot, or because the sock so small and is pulled towards the inside of your foot.
The shoe/sock combination plays an important role
There are numerous causes of blisters when hiking: rubbing, a crease in the sock, moisture, a boot size that is too small or too big, etc. It is therefore important to choose the right size and to have socks made of the right material for your walking boots.
What socks should you wear with the NH150 shoe?
We advise you to choose Hike 100 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.
