Technical Information

OUTSOLE WITH GRIP

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

WHY OFFER THE SAME MODEL WITH TWO WIDTHS AT THE FRONT OF THE FOOT?

Following a long study of trekker's preferences concerning the shape of boots, we decided to design a boot in 2 different shapes: one "classic" and one "wide".
Consequently, depending on your own preferences, you can choose how much space you want inside the boots and reduce the risk of chafing and blisters because your boots don't fit well.

HOW WATERPROOF ARE THESE BOOTS?

This boot has been validated by a waterproofing test involving 30,000 successive flexes, which is equivalent to 15 km or 6 hours of walking in water up to the middle of the upper. This guarantees a very good level of waterproofing for your boots.
--> Our assessment indicates a LEVEL OF 3/5 which is equivalent to 6 hours of waterproofing when hiking in the rain.
The details of tests carried out to assess the waterproofing of our boots is below, in the characteristics section.

PROLONGING THE WATERPROOFING

The waterproofing of boots is often compromised because water gets in at the collar of the boot. To keep your feet dry for longer, you can wear a waterproof gaiter or mini-gaiter that will not only prevent water but also pebbles, sand, etc from getting inside at the collar. The boots should be sprayed with a waterproof spray several times a year. This restores the original water-repellent properties and prevents staining.

CARE ADVICE

1 / Use a brush and/or sponge to clean the boot and remove any dirt or mud.
2/ Then leave to air dry, away from any heat source.
3/ Finish by spraying with a waterproof spray to preserve the water repellent property of the upper and prolong the lifetime of the boot.

WHICH SIZE SHOULD I CHOOSE?

WHICH SIZE SHOULD I CHOOSE?
For hiking, don't hesitate to choose one size above your usual size to ensure optimal comfort when going downhill and prevent your toes from hitting the front of the boot. Tip: keep your toenails short and, before descending, check that the tightening of your laces prevents your foot from sliding forwards inside the boot.

5 LEVELS OF WATERPROOFING

During the waterproofing test, we test 5 levels of waterproofing:
2,000 flexes (equivalent to about 4 km or 30 min of walking)
10,000 flexes (equivalent to about 10 km or 3 hours of walking)
30,000 flexes (equivalent to about 15 km or 6 hours of walking)
50,000 flexes (equivalent to about 20 km or 8 hours of walking)
100,000 flexes (equivalent to more than 20 km or 24 hours of walking)

WATERPROOFING TEST

Our boots are laboratory tested using two successive tests
Test 1/ We test the effectiveness of the membrane alone by checking whether pressurised air gets through the membrane placed under water and forms bubbles on the surface, as you would when testing a "punctured inner tube".
Test 2 / Using a mechanical arm that simulates walking, the whole boot is half-immersed in water and flexed thousands of times to check that the inside of the boot remains dry and is therefore waterproof.

BUYING TIPS/HOW TO TRY OUT YOUR BOOTS?

How to choose your boots:
1. Try both boots, while standing, with the socks used 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 downhill.
4. Get up to walk with the boots on.
5. Try on several sizes and several models.
6. Wear your boots for increasingly long periods to wear them in

CO-DESIGN

These boots were co-designed with trekking enthusiasts, each of whom contributed thanks to 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.

MANUFACTURING

The TREK 100 leather boots are manufactured in the European Union, in Romania, in a factory that specialises in making trekking boots.
This plant uses only water-based glues with no chemical solvents.
Most materials are of European origin.
