The grip of our soles is certified.
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 also assess the quality of our soles on the field, in the mountains, by a panel of young testers.
OUR ENVIRONMENTAL POLICY
We have improved this product with an eco-design approach by using 30% recycled rubber
We use the dope dyeing process up to 79%, the remaining 21% are made from greige yarn (greige means that the fabric is not dyed.
The colour is in its raw state) The product’s CO2 impact is reduced by 20% compared to the previous model.
OUR COMMITMENT TO CONSUME LESS WATER WITH THIS PRODUCT
Textile dyeing requires a lot of water but also produces waste water from the dye baths. To reduce our environmental impact, we use a mass pigmentation process that involves adding the colour pigments when the yarn itself is produced.
Product design: our expertise
Our Quechua global design centre is based in Passy, at the foot of Mont-Blanc in Haute Savoie.
This location makes it a real meeting place for our teams (designers, product managers, engineers, etc) and outdoor sports enthusiasts.
A great asset for designing your mountain walking products and providing you with all our expertise.
