Technical information

CrossContact sole

Sole design that has been the subject of extensive research in our laboratories, combined with a specific rubber formulation to offer a better compromise in terms of grip and traction. The design of the FH900 sole provides more grip than traction. Definition > Traction: not slipping on loose ground (loamy or dry).
Grip: not slipping on hard ground (wet or dry).

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 down. Avoid all pressure points when trying shoes on.
Don't hesitate to walk around the store. Gradually start using you shoes during your first few hiking trips to break them in.

What size should I choose?

For hiking, do not hesitate to buy one size larger than the usual size to guarantee excellent comfort on the descent and to avoid toes rubbing at the tip of the shoe. Tip: keep your toenails short, and before going downhill at any time, check that your laces are tight enough to stop your feet slipping down towards the front of the shoes.

Field tests

All our shoes undergo comfort and use tests carried out by users who are representative of our target market, in conditions identical to those found in typical use. Our Field Test Missions team the product manager up with people who are unaffiliated with Quechua, to test, improve and validate our products.

Lab tests

Further laboratory tests were conducted to test the following elements: attachment of eyelets and webbing, assembly, toxicology, UV resistance, sole and upper component abrasion, accelerated ageing.

EVOFIT concept

The EVOFIT concept enables a wide range of anatomic movement in the metatarsal area (front of the foot, where it is the widest). This is what increases the likelihood of being comfortable in your boots, whether your foot is wide or narrow.
