Technical information

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.

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 shoes and cause discomfort. They are not suitable for mountain walking.

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.

To reduce our environmental impact

We have used more environmentally friendly components:
- Upper, laces and loops, tongue and collar lining: 100% recycled polyester
- Insole: 85% recycled polyurethane foam
- Outsole: 30% recycled rubber
These actions represent 31% of the weight of the shoe.
The use of recycled materials helps to reduce the depletion of resources by recycling end-of-life materials. Technical use and quality are guaranteed.

Where does our leather come from?

We use a leather called ‘nubuck’. It has a soft, silky feel.
The leather used on these shoes comes from cows. We do not kill any animals to obtain this leather: we only use waste from the food industry. The leather on these shoes comes from French skins which are then tanned in Spain.

How to look after your leather shoes

After your hikes, we advise you to:
- Dry your shoes away from any heat sources
- Brush the dry leather vigorously with a stiff brush to remove mud and dirt
- Use a crepe brush or nubuck rubber to remove stains
- If the stains persist, clean with a brush and a little warm water
- Leave to dry
- Brush again with a stiff brush
- Use spray-on waterproofing: this will make the leather shine and bring out the colours

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.

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.

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.

How to choose the fabric of my walking socks

Moisture must be effectively managed when walking: we perspire, it’s bound to happen. This model of shoe delivers some breathability thanks to its mesh material at the front of the foot. It will wick away the moisture of your perspiration. It is therefore necessary to choose a light and breathable sock as well.

What socks should you wear with the NH500 shoe?

You should opt for the NH500 Low or NH500 Mid socks: they contain moisture-absorbing cotton and have a reverse terry-knit construction that wicks moisture away from your foot. They are high enough to protect your ankle from the shoe. This is an excellent combination for minimising the likelihood of blisters.

TESTS

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!

Approved By

These trousers were tested and approved in April by a group of testers during a one-day hike on the GR2018 coastal trail in Brittany.
