Technical Information

1
Grippy soles on natural footpaths
The sole’s design is the result of extensive research carried out in our labs. We favoured a specific rubber formula which optimises grip and resistance. Since requirements differ, we systematically seek the best compromise for hiking on off-road trails with loose ground, such as forest trails.
2
Designed for use on country trails
Our walking shoes are designed for use on off-road 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 boots and cause discomfort. They are not suitable for mountain walking.
3
Waterproofing test
Footwear equipped with a membrane is laboratory and field tested to ensure optimal waterproofing and breathability. To start, they are immersed in water with pressurised air inside to check that no bubbles form on the surface of the boot. Next, they are fitted to a mechanical arm that simulates walking half-immersed in water to test that the inside remains perfectly dry.

3 levels of waterproofing
When tested for waterproofness, we test 3 levels of waterproofing: - 2000 flexes, approximately 2 hours of hiking - 4000 flexes, approximately 4 hours of hiking - 8000 flexes, approximately 8 hours of hiking The Women's boots NH150 Mid WP were tested for 2000 flexes in a laboratory. This means they will stay waterproof for a 2-hour hike. Obviously, once they have dried out, they regain all of their original waterproofing properties.

How to keep your boots waterproof for longer
We advise that you use a re-waterproofing spray several times per year, to restore the original water-repellency and prevent staining.
6
Laboratory tested
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 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 the store. Gradually start using you shoes during your first few hiking trips to break them in.
8
The shoe/sock combination plays an important role
There are multiple factors which may cause blisters when you are walking: 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.
9
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. 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.
10
How to choose the fabric of my walking socks
Moisture must be effectively managed when walking: we perspire, it’s bound to happen. The NH150 Mid WP shoes are waterproof, to protect you from the moisture of the rain: preferably choose socks that will absorb your perspiration and wick it as far away from the foot as possible.
11
Which pair of socks should you wear with the NH150 MID WP shoe?
Although the waterproof membrane of these shoes is breathable, they do not wick away the moisture of your perspiration as effectively as a ventilated shoe. You should opt for the NH100 high 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 high enough to protect your ankle from the shoe. It is an excellent combination to reduce the chance of blisters.

Product test
Our design team conceives, designs and creates Quechua products in France, at the foot of Mont Blanc. We test them in the field with other hikers to check their comfort and durability. In the Fontainebleau Forest or in Brittany, for example. We go on as many trails as possible, in all weather conditions. This creates plenty of opportunities for discussions to get your feedback which is used to plan our future products!

Stockage tips
We recommend you store your boots in a dry, dark and, if possible, ventilated place.
