Technical Information

1
Waterproofing test
Footwear waterproofing test: laboratory and field-tested shoes with a breathable, waterproof membrane to ensure optimum protection from the rain. First, the shoe is immersed in water under air pressure to check no bubbles form on the shoe's surface. Partly immersed, the shoes are then fitted to a mechanical arm that simulates walking: we then check whether the inside of the shoe is still completely 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
Field test
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.
4
Laboratory test
Other laboratory tests are also conducted to approve the quality of the following components: torn eyelets and straps, bonding, toxicology, UV resistance, abrasion of the sole and the components of the upper, accelerated ageing.

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.
6
Buying tips
Try on both shoes, standing up, wearing hiking socks. Try several styles and sizes, if required. 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. Don't hesitate to walk around the store. Wear your shoes in gradually during the first hikes, to mould them to your foot.

Response of the brand
Hello Mr. Ajinkya,

Thanks for your feedback on the Arpenaz 100 hiking shoes by quechua. I apologise for the inconvenience caused to you.

The Arpenaz 100 shoes are designed for short hikes on lowlands for occasional user. The shoe comes with only an outsole and does not have a midsole as the user on this terrain does not use it for long. I apologise again for the inconvenience and I request you kindly to visit any of our stores closer to you and get this product exchanged. In exchange for this, if you could let me know your usage, I'd be glad to recommend the right shoe for your comfortable usage.

I stay available if you need any further assistance with our products in future.

Sportively,

I brought these as a general purpose shoe - day wear, shopping etc. I have not tested the waterproofing yet but on the whole a good shoe for the money.
