All our shoes undergo use and comfort tests carried out by users who represent the target market in conditions identical to those found in typical use. Our Field Test Missions team up the product manager with people who aren't affiliated with QUECHUA, to test, improve, and validate our products
full-day mountain hikes on snowy terrain and in cold weather. For intensive use.
Use the brush and/or sponge to clean the shoe and remove dirt or mud residue. The use of cream or waterproof grease on split leather is not recommended. While it will not damage the leather, it will change the look of your shoe
Store in a dark, dry and well-ventilated place
Not suitable for glacier hiking.
Footwear waterproofing test
The footwear is laboratory and field tested to ensure optimal 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.
3 levels of waterproofing
In the waterproofing tests, we test 3 levels of waterproofing, with 2,000 flexes (approx. a 4 km walk), 4000 flexes (approx. an 8 Km walk) and 8000 flexes (approx. a 16 Km walk). Of course, after this test or in use, the shoe regains its original waterproofing once dry.
Shoe waterproofing level.
The Forclaz 900 Warm Novadry boots are waterproof for 8000 flexes.
SNOWCONTACT soles are made using a special component. Designs are optimised to provide excellent all-terrain grip and maximal traction all winter long. Also, the SNOWCONTACT soles are more effective than traditional soles on snow

Measurement of the boots' thermal insulation.
It used to be impossible to tell the exact temperature down to which your shoes would protect you. Now it can be done: the temperature limits for use are shown on your Quechua shoes. Using cold sensing tests while hiking and in the lab with a panel of customers, we measured the thermal resistance of our shoes while active and at rest. We take into account the differences in sensing cold between men and women.
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.
