Technical Information

1
Waterproofing test
Footwear waterproofing test: tested in the laboratory and in use, these boots, equipped with a waterproof and breathable membrane, guarantee optimal protection against the rain. First immersed in water under air pressure, we check the absence of bubbles on the surface of the boot. 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.
2
3 levels of waterproofing
During the waterproofing test, we test 3 levels of impermeability, ie 2000 flexes (about 2 hours of walking), 4000 flexes (about 4 hours of walking) and 8000 flexes (about 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 initial comfort and comfort in use by typical users and under the same conditions you find in use. Our Test Missions combine the product manager with non-Quechua-affiliated people to test, develop and validate products.
4
Laboratory Testing
Other laboratory tests are also conducted to validate the following elements: tearing of eyelets and straps, bonding, toxicology, UV resistance, abrasion of sole and upper components, accelerated ageing.
5
What size should I choose?
For hiking, don’t hesitate to choose one size above your usual shoe size to ensure optimal comfort going downhill and avoid toes hitting the end. Tip: keep your nails short and, before making your descent, check that your lacing prevents your foot from sliding towards the front of the boot.
6
Buying tips
Try on both shoes, standing up, with the socks worn for hiking. Try several models, several 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. Don't hesitate to walk around the store. Break in your boots gradually during their first hikes to adapt them to your foot.

Nice shoe
Used for 3 to 6 months
I am using it around 4/5 months on regular basis.I observed that these shoes should be used a bit for better gripping.But it's gripping is not good nor bad also. I am using a gel insole in it and finding very much comfortable. Waterproofing is upto my expectations regarding it's price. Thanks Decathlon
Bad quality
Used for 3 to 6 months
In 6 months the top portion of the shoe started tearing.
Response of the brand
Hello Pradeep,

Thanks for your valuable time to review the Arpenaz 100 Waterproof shoes by Quechua. I apologize for the inconvenience caused to you.

To give you a small insight on this product, the Arpenaz 100 shoe is designed for hiking on the lowlands for one day, on an occasional use. They give you good grip and comfort on this terrain, plus they are waterproof and hence they help you stay dry even when it is raining. When they are used for a purpose other than the above, there are high chances for the shoe not to perform as the value promised.
Please be assured that all our products are tested for usage and quality under two levels, one by users on real-time terrains and the other under laboratory conditions. These tests enable us to assure a 2-year warranty on all our products. I apologize again for the inconvenience caused to you and I request you kindly to get this shoe exchanged at a store closer to you. Meanwhile, if you could let me know your usage, I stay available to recommend the best shoe suited for your usage.

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.

Sole is slippery. No grip
Used for 1 week or less
Tried using for mild hiking activity. Had to remove shoes as it was too slippery.
Not breathable = sweaty feet!
Used for 2 to 8 weeks
I don't have a problem with sweaty feet at all, but I wore these for work for about 4 weeks, I'm a service engineer so not really heavy use. But, I noticed my feet got very hot and my socks were pretty wet. After about 3 weeks these shoes developed a pretty nasty odour- something I've never had before. So, I've had to ditch them.
Nice

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.
