Technical Information

Crosscontact sole
Lengthy research into the design of the sole in our laboratories, combined with a special rubber formulation which optimises the balance between traction and adhesion. We aim for the best compromise for walking on dry and slippery terrain, knowing that the needs are not the same.
Fresh Concept
A specific boot design combining a highly breathable upper and a sole construction allowing the evacuation of humidity. Laboratory-approved design, fully tried and tested by testers and users, guaranteeing that your feet will always feel dry on summer hikes
Field use test
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.
Laboratory Tests.
Other laboratory tests are also conducted to approve the quality of the following components: attachment of eyelets and webbing, assembly, toxicology, UV resistance, sole and upper component abrasion, accelerated ageing.
What size should I choose?
On account of the extremely thin and breathable components, the Forclaz 500 has a large fit. You may need a size below.
Buying tips
Try on both shoes, standing up, with the socks worn for hiking. Try on several models or sizes if necessary. Check two comfort points: the base of the heel and the front part of the foot. Lace up your boots properly and avoid all pressure points when trying them on. Don't hesitate to walk around the store. Gradually start using you shoes during your first few hiking trips to break them in.
