Technical Information

1
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, half immersed in water so we can test that the inside remains perfectly dry.
2
3 levels of waterproofing.
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.
3
Shoe waterproofing level.
The Forclaz 500 Warm boot is waterproof for 8000 flexes.
4
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. SNOWCONTACT soles are more effective than traditional soles on snow.
5
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 up the product manager with people who aren't affiliated with QUECHUA, to test, improve, and validate our products.
6
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.
7
Lab tests.
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.

Tyres for your adventurous feet
I had signed up for a Ski Course @Auli,India in February. I was looking for something solid and waterproof when i came across these @Decathlon store in Thane. I quite liked the build of the shoe and decided to go for it. I don't regret it . In fact ; it was a very good decision . Turned out snowfall was less this year. So we had to climb further (roughly to the equivalent of 90 floors a day uphill ) on steep mountains to reach the ski slopes. On the way we had patches covered with sleet , slush , boilerplates & mud (not to mention dung). Both uphill & downhill , not once did I feel I was out of control or the surface would be too slippery to step on. Yea. They are also water proof. As it says on their label. A must have if you're a frequent trekker
Best £40 spent on boots
Used for 2 to 8 weeks
Bought these on my way out of store as the boots I'd gone in to buy were unavailable in my size. My Brashers needed urgently replacing. Decided to buy just to keep me temporarily in waterproof winter walking boots. They did not need breaking in, so light hardly know I'm wearing them, completely waterproof. Do about 4 miles across fields every day walking the dog. Will buy again when I need replacement.
Comfortable, warm, did not need breaking in.

Value for money

I walked in these boots from snow to mountains without getting socks wet, these were very comfortable and never smelt after all this.
Comfortable, waterproof verified, warm
Excellent boots
I bought these boots after my every day walking trainers started to leak. It was a last minute descision to buy them. What attracted me was the price for waterproof snow boots. I've worn them for a few months now and used them hiking in Scotland in the winter. So far I have been very impressed. I use them every day for walking the dog and general use and they haven't let me down. They do exactly what they say on the tin and yes I would buy another pair. Why 4 stars? Nothing gets 5;)
I had high hopes but ended up disappointed
Used for 2 to 8 weeks
I bought these because I work outdoors in all sorts of weather , so I needed waterproof breathable boots. I found out quickly that my feet felt damp around the toe area so I tried different insoles and different socks to see if it would help, it did not. Today I did the school run in the rain wearing these with merino wool socks, when i got home my feet felt damp so i kept the boots on for a few hours , later my feet were feeling cold so I took them off and my socks and feet were damp around the toe area. For me they are not breathable and so I am very disappointed.
Product not as described!
Smart looking
Not breathable around the toe cap area
