Technical information

We have reduced our environmental impact on this product

43% of the weight of these shoes is eco-designed:
- 75% recycled polyester microfibre upper
- Upper mesh laces and 100% recycled polyester lace loops
- Lining: 100% recycled polyester for the blue (reference 8583428) and brown colour (reference 8583429)
- 30% bio-based midsole (cane sugar)
- 30% recycled rubber outsole made from tyres

Resistant soles for walking trails

Our hiking boots are designed for use on hiking trails. Indeed, the components of the sole and upper of our boots are selected and tested to ensure that they are as well suited as possible to hiking on soft trails (e.g. dirt paths in forests) or stony trails (rocky coastal footpaths). Road use (tarmac) may lead to premature wear on your boots and cause discomfort. They are not suitable for mountain walking.

Tested for durability and optimal resistance

Laboratory tests were 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.

Which pair of socks are suitable for Quechua NH500 Fresh shandals?

You can wear these shandals without socks. However, if you do want to wear some, we recommend choosing a pair of polyamide, cotton-free socks. Polyamide is a fibre that is specially chosen for its capacity to eliminate moisture. We therefore recommend Newfeel WS500 Fresh socks.


Main material of the upper, mesh, laces and lace loops in 40% recycled polyester. Lining 100% recycled polyester for blue/yellow and brown colours. By recycling plastic bottles or used textiles to produce our polyester, we reduce the use of petroleum-based resources while preserving the qualities and performance of the material for your treks.


We use this mass pigmentation for the black/yellow colours (reference 8626277).
In addition to the large quantity of water consumed to dye the textiles, waste water is discharged from the dyeing baths. To reduce our environmental impact, we use a mass pigmentation process that involves adding the colour pigments when the yarn itself is produced.

User Restrictions

Do not use in salt water


It’s in France, at the foot of Mont Blanc, that our design team conceives, designs and creates Quechua products. We test them in the field with other hikers, to check their comfort and durability. Fontainebleau forest, Brittany or in Corsica for example. We go to as many different places 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!

Approved By

These shandals were tested and approved by a dozen or so testers in June 2021 in the Var on the Côte d'Azur.
In order to meet your requirements, Quechua products are tested in the wild in the conditions you encounter during your hikes. Our teams, as well as a panel of testers (made up of partners, ambassadors and customers) test the products throughout their development right up until they are marketed.
