Buying and fitting advice
Try on both boots, standing up, with the socks worn for hiking. Try several models and various sizes if necessary. Check two comfort points: the base of the heel and the front part of the foot going downhill. Avoid all pressure points when trying boots on. Feel free to walk around the store. Gradually start using your boots during your first few hiking trips to break them in.
What size should I choose?
For hiking, feel free to buy one size larger than your usual size to guarantee excellent comfort on the descent and avoid toes rubbing against the tip of the boot. Tip: keep your toenails short, and before going downhill, always check that your laces are tight enough to stop your feet slipping down towards the front of the boots.
Design - what we know best
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.
Our environmental approach
Because we are aware that we must act to preserve our playground, Quechua is committed to limiting the environmental impact of its products.
Today, this product is not eco-designed, but we work every day to make it more responsible: eco-design, repairability and sustainability are at the heart of our developments.
