Technical Information

1
Crosscontact sole
The sole design is the product of a lengthy research and development process conducted in our laboratories, combined with a special rubber formulation to optimise grip and traction. Given the range of different needs, we are always seeking the best compromise for walking on both wet and dry terrain.
2
Waterproofing test
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 while the air pressure inside is increased to check that no bubbles form on the surface. They are half immersed and then placed on a mechanical arm that simulates walking: we then check that the inside of the shoe remains perfectly dry.
3
Waterproofing level
During the waterproofing test, we test 3 levels of waterproofing: 2000 flexes (around 4 hours of walking), 4000 flexes (around 8 hours of walking) and 8000 flexes (around 16 hours of walking). Of course, after this test or in use, the shoe regains its original waterproofing once dry. The MH500 waterproof shoe passed the test involving 8000 flexes.
4
Prolonging the waterproof properties
A shoe's waterproofing is often undermined by water getting in from the top of the shoe. To keep your feet dry for longer, we recommend wearing waterproof gaiters or mini-gaiters to protect the top part of the boots and prevent water, pebbles, sand, etc. from getting inside. To restore the original water repellent properties and prevent staining the outer surface, spray with a waterproof spray several times per year.
5
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 going down. Avoid all pressure points when trying them on. Always walk around the store. Wear your shoes in gradually during the first hikes, to mould them to your foot.
6
What shoe size should 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: before any descent, make sure that your toe nails are clipped and that your laces are tightened so that your feet cannot slide forwards in the boot.
7
Field test
All our boots are tested in real-life conditions by testers who are representative of the target customer to ensure that they fit properly and are comfortable 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.
8
Laboratory Testing
Other laboratory tests are also conducted to pass the following: tearing resistance of the eyelets and straps, resistance of adhesives, toxicology, UV resistance, to abrasion of the outsole and upper components, accelerated ageing.

Quite stylish good value comfortable waterproof shoes. Took them on a skiing holiday and they were grippy, warm, dry and comfy. Just what I wanted and a bargain compared to the branded ones I looked at.
Highly recommended
Used for 2 to 8 weeks
Very impressed! For the price I don't think you could match these. I'm a month into them and have absolutely zero complaints. They are warm, comfortable and appear hard wearing. I particularly like the laces and sole. Highly recommended!

Not at all waterproof
Used for 2 to 8 weeks
This shoe is comfortable, good grip on certain surfaces (exclude tiles), but not at all waterproof. Walking on puddle of water on my first pair and it starts to squeak. Exchanged for a second pair, but on my first raining day, it starts to squeak shortly after. The waterproofing for the top was excellent, just that the waterproofing need more improvement at the sole area.
How to define waterproof
Used for 2 to 8 weeks
This shoe provide good grip even on wet some surfaces* Waterproof yet not. First pair I bought, starts having squeaky sound after a wearing for a couple of times and walked on wet floor once after a rain. Air dry for a week does not help. Exchanged.

Exchanged pair was fine, till I was caught in a heavy downpour. Waterproofing was good on the shoe upper for the 15 mins walk, but it start to squeak before I even reached a sheltered area. Air drying now.

*slippery on some tiles
