    Made my feet blister

    I bought these shoes nearly 2 weeks ago and although the the initially felt very comfortable and sturdy after a short period of time I have noticed that the inner lining of the shoes are giving me blisters on both feet. I can usually accept that new shoes can sometimes do this, but I have never seen the problem so quickly and so severe. I'm very disappointed and will be returning the shoes before they wear a hole in my ankle.

    Good shoes but slight flaw.
    Comfortable and sturdy Defect in right shoe.

    I like these walking shoes but there is a clicking noise in the right shoe when I walk and flex the sole of the shoe. Just bought these a couple of weeks ago so will return them for exchange.

Care instructions
Take care of your shoes; cleaning them regularly helps maintain their efficiency for longer. Care: Use a nylon brush to remove dirt. Clean the surface with a soft, damp cloth and mild soap. Air dry. Do not dry near a heat source. Do not machine wash.
Storage Tips
store in a dry place away from direct sunlight.
Restricted use
Not suitable for scree slopes or trekking.


Making waterproofing last longer
A shoe's waterproofing is often undermined by water getting in from the top of the shoe. Using waterproof gaiters or mini gaiters is therefore recommended to keep your feet dry for longer by protecting the top part of your shoes and prevent water from getting in as well as pebbles, sand, etc. Use of a re-waterproofing spray is recommended several times per year. This will help your shoes recover their original water repellent qualities and combat outer stains.
Waterproofing test
Footwear waterproofing test: Tested both in the lab and real-world usage, NOVADRY®-equipped footwear guarantees optimum waterproofing and breathability. First, the shoe is immersed in water while internal air pressure is applied to check that no bubbles form on the surface of the footwear. Next, shoes are fitted to a mechanical arm that simulates walking and half immersed in water so we can test that the inside remains perfectly dry.
Waterproofing level
During the waterproofing test, we test 3 levels of waterproofing: 2000 flexes (around 2 hours of walking), 4000 flexes (around 4 hours of walking) and 8000 flexes (around 8 hours of walking). Of course, after this test or in use, the shoe regains its original waterproofing once dry. Arpenaz 100 Novadry shoes are waterproof for 2000 flexes.
Waterproofing vs Breathability
A shoe with a waterproof and breathable membrane will generally be much less breathable than a shoe without a membrane. It is important to be aware of this if breathability is important to you.
