Footwear waterproofing test: these boots, which have been tested in the laboratory and the field, have a breathable, waterproof membrane for optimum protection in the rain. First, the boot is immersed in water with pressurised air inside to check that no bubbles form on the surface. Then, the boots are fitted to a mechanical arm that simulates walking and half immersed in water to test that the inside remains perfectly dry.
3 levels of waterproofing
During the waterproofing test, we test 3 levels of waterproofing: 2000 flexes (about 4 km of walking), 4000 flexes (about 8 km of walking) and 8000 flexes (about 16 km of walking). Naturally, when the boot has dried after the test or in use, it regains its original waterproof rating.
The TREK 100 boot has passed the waterproofing test involving 8000 flexes, i.e. 16 km of walking in water up to the middle of the upper.
Laboratory tests were conducted to test the following elements:
- attachment of eyelets and webbing
- sole assembly
- UV resistance
- abrasion of the sole and upper components
- accelerated ageing.
Try on both boots, while 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 forefoot when going downhill.
You should not feel any pressure points when trying them on. Feel free to walk around the store.
Gradually wear in your boots over the course of a few hikes so that they conform to your feet.
TREK 100 boots are made in the European Union, in Romania.
Most materials are of European origin.
Store in a dark, dry and well-ventilated place.
The wearing comfort and comfort in use of all our boots are tested by representative users under the same conditions as those you would encounter in use. In particular, our Mission Tests bring together the product manager with people not connected with Quechua to test, develop and approve the products.
