    A good versatile boot

    I bought these boots for my trip to Lapland. I preferred them to snow boots because I don't often visit places with lots of snow. They were warm enough to walk on snow and ice up to -12°. They were also comfortable for walking around in town. I will definitely use them in multiple occasions. Stylish as well, much better than the usual pink/purple/furry snow boots available for women.

    Brilliant boots.

    Reference to them being slightly narrow (I could only select moderate) is due more to the fact that I have a very high instep and the more I wear them the more they bed in. I have worn them for walking in the UK and also as snowboots in the Alps. They are comfortable and they kept me warm and dry in the snow and never slipped once, they offer good support plus being totally manmade is brilliant for me being Vegan. Excellent boots.

    обувки

    Обувките са просто страхотни!!! Всичко посочено в описанието за тях е абсолютно вярно. Имайте предвид, че оцеляха след почти 3 месечна интензивна употреба от дъщеря ми, на чийто крака каквито и да е обувки не оцеляваха повече от месец. Възхитена съм тези обувки освен, че са здрави дори и не мръднаха - като нови са! Край на мокрите крака през зимата :)

Features

Footwear waterproofing test.
Tested both in the lab and real-world usage, NOVADRY®-equipped footwear guarantees optimum waterproofing and breathability. Our Field Test Missions team up the product manager with people who aren't affiliated with QUECHUA, to test, improve, and validate our products.Next, shoes are fitted to a mechanical arm that simulates walking, half immersed in water so we can test that the inside remains perfectly dry.
3 levels of waterproofing.
During the waterproofing test, we test 3 levels of waterproofing: 2,000 flexes (walking approx. 4 km), 4,000 flexes (walking approx. 8 km) and 8,000 flexes (walking approx.16 km). Of course, after this test or in use, the shoe regains its original waterproofing once dry.
SNOWCONTACT technology.
SNOWCONTACT soles are made using a special component. Designs are optimised to provide excellent all-terrain grip and maximal traction all winter long. It used to be impossible to tell the precise temperature up to which your shoes would protect you.

Measurement of the boots' thermal insulation.
It used to be impossible to tell the precise temperature up to which your shoes would protect you. Now it can be done: Lab tests.Using cold sensing tests while hiking and in the lab with a panel of customers, we measured the thermal resistance of our boots while active and at rest. During the waterproofing test, we test 3 levels of waterproofing: 2,000 flexes (walking approx. 4 km), 4,000 flexes (walking approx. 8 km) and 8,000 flexes (walking approx.16 km).
