What type of route is this boot made for?

This boot is designed for trekking on generally low altitude routes and/or on easier marked trails.

Why choose a textile model? Benefits and disadvantages.

Benefits
- The synthetic materials are lightweight and flexible giving you unquestionable immediate comfort.
- The synthetic materials give good ventilation. (these synthetic models are more suited to the summers)

Disadvantages:
- For water resistance, they must really be combined with a waterproof membrane. (this is the case for all our Forclaz trekking boots)
- Maintain waterproofing over time using temporary treatments.

CONTACT® technology. Grip and traction of our soles

The grip and traction of our soles is certified CONTACT®
To be awarded certification, the boots must pass laboratory tests to assess the grip rate on different surfaces (Smooth, Rugged, Dry, Wet). To validate these tests, we assess the quality of our soles in the field, the mountains, by a panel of representative testers over 500 km

Their notching also gives you grip adapted to muddy or wet terrain

HOW WATERPROOF ARE THESE BOOTS?

This boot has been validated by a waterproofing test at 10,000 repeatable flexes, i.e. 10 km - 3 hours of walking, in water up to the mid-upper, which today guarantees a very good level of waterproofing for your boots.

--> Our assessment indicates a LEVEL OF 2/5 giving 3 hours of waterproofing when hiking in the rain.

The details of tests carried out to assess the waterproofing of our boots is below.

How to make waterproofing last longer on this textile trekking boot?

Even though this model has a WATERPROOF MEMBRANE (waterproof, breathable), it is recommended you use a re-waterproofing spray a few times a year to restore the original water-repellent properties and prevent staining
--> It revitalises the water-repellent properties of the outer material (water runs off the surface and doesn't soak in). Each fabric section is then sprayed and in particular the seams are not to be forgotten. (water loves the seams!)

How to maintain your textile boots? steps to follow

1 / Use a brush and/or a sponge to clean; remove any soil or mud.
2/ Then leave to air dry, away from any heat source.
3 / Shake the WATERPROOF SPRAY can / €5
4 / Spray the product from a distance of 25 cm
5 / Leave for at least 10 minutes. Caution: Do not rub or wipe.

Waterproof boot or gaiter? it’s not necessarily one or the other! it provides additional protection

The waterproofing of boots is often compromised because water gets in at the collar of the boot. --> To keep your feet dry for longer, it is advisable to use a waterproof gaiter or mini-gaiter that will prevent water as well as pebbles and sand from getting inside through the top of the boot.

Environmental approach, Dope Dyed

DOPE DYEING process of the inner lining of this model
In order to reduce quantity of water used in this bulk dyeing process, the thread is dyed and not the fabric.
This technique saves up to 60% water and considerably reduces CO2 emissions. This also reduces colour fading over time.

Environmental approach, Recycled polyester

Outer upper made from 90% recycled POLYESTER
Polyester, made from the chemical (not energy) by-products of petroleum, is used in several of our industrial processes, particularly in textiles and heavy-duty clothing products. The CO2 impact of this material is significant and contributes to the depletion of the resources used in its manufacture. It is important to work towards our independence from fossil fuels and find solutions to the environmental concerns of sportspeople through innovation.

CO-DESIGN

These boots were co-designed with passionate trekkers, each bringing their own special skills. For example, one of our co-designers is a chiropodist who helps us to meet the physiological needs of people's feet and to make sure they are comfortable and safe during treks.

Which size should I select?

For hiking, do not hesitate to buy one size larger than the usual size to guarantee excellent comfort on the descent and to avoid toes rubbing at the tip of the shoe. Tip: keep your toenails short and, before descending, check that your lacing prevents your foot from sliding forwards inside the boot.

BUYING TIPS how to try on your boots?

How to choose your boots:
1. Try on both shoes, standing up, with the socks worn for hiking. 2. Tighten the laces correctly.
3. Check the following two areas of comfort: the base of the heel and the front part of the foot going down. 4. Stand up to walk with the boots on.
5. Try on several sizes and several models.
6. Gradually start using you shoes during your first few hiking trips to break them in.

Waterproofing test

Our boots are laboratory tested by 2 consecutive tests.
Test 1: We test the effectiveness of the membrane alone immersed in water under air pressure. We simply check for any bubbles on the surface like a pierced air chamber.
Test 2: Thanks to a mechanical arm that simulates walking, the entire boots are half immersed in water and they complete thousands of flexes to check that the inside of the boot remains dry and it is therefore waterproof.

5 levels of waterproofing

During the waterproofness test, we test 5 levels of waterproofness:
- 2,000 flexes (approximately 4 km, 30 minutes of walking)
- 10,000 flexes (approximately 10 km, 3 hours of walking)
- 30,000 flexes (approximately 15 km, 6 hours of walking)
- 50,000 flexes (approximately 20 km, 8 hours of walking)
- 100,000 flexes (approximately >20 km, 24 hours of walking)
