We designed the sole based on long research at our laboratories, combined with a specific rubber formulation to offer the best compromise between grip and traction. The Arpenaz 50 sole is designed to offer better grip than traction. Traction: means not slipping on soft ground (wet or dry). Grip: means not slipping on hard ground (wet or dry).
What shoe size do I choose?
For hiking, try taking one shoe size up from your usual to ensure optimum comfort when going downhill and to prevent your toes from hitting the toe box. Tip: keep your toenails short and before descending, check that your lacing will stop your foot from sliding towards the front of the shoe.
All our shoes are tested for comfort and use by representative users under conditions identical to those found when in use. Our Missions Tests link the product manager up with people who are not affiliated to Quechua to test, develop and approve the products.
Other laboratory tests are also conducted to approve the quality of the following components: torn eyelets and straps, bonding, toxicology, UV resistance, wearing away of the sole and the all component parts of the upper, accelerated aging.
Store in a dark, dry and well-ventilated place.
All our shoes are tested for initial comfort and comfort in use by typical users and under the same conditions you find in use. In particular, our Missions Tests link the product manager up with people who are not affiliated to Quechua to test, develop and approve the products.
