Technical Information

1
Footwear waterproofing test.
These boots, which have been laboratory and field tested, are equipped with a waterproof membrane that provides optimum waterproofing and breathability. First, the boot is immersed in water while the air pressure inside is increased to check that no bubbles form on the surface. Next, the boots are fitted to a mechanical arm that simulates walking and half immersed in water to test that the inside remains perfectly dry.
2
3 levels of waterproofing.
In our waterproofing tests, we test 3 levels of waterproofing: 2000 flexions (approximately 4 km walk) 4000 flexions (approximately 8 km walk) 8000 flexions (approximately 16 km walk). Naturally, when the product has dried after this test or in use, it regains its original waterproofing.
3
Footwear waterproof rating.
The TREK 500 boot has passed the waterproofing test involving 8000 flexes, i.e. 16 km of walking in water up to the middle of the upper.
4
Lab tests
Laboratory tests were conducted to test the following elements: - attachment of eyelets and webbing - sole assembly - toxicology - UV resistance - abrasion of the sole and upper components - accelerated ageing.

Care instructions
Use a brush and/or a sponge to clean the shoe and remove dirt or mud residue. Then, air dry away from a heat source. Finish with a nourishing cream to keep the leather nice and flexible and prolong the lifetime of the boot.

Buying tips
Try on both boots, standing up, with the socks worn for hiking. Try on several models or sizes if necessary. Check the following 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 during your first few hikes so that they conform to your feet.

Product test
The wearing comfort and comfort in use of all our boots are tested by users who are representative of the people the products are designed for, under the same conditions you would encounter in use. In particular, our "Mission Tests" bring together the product manager with people who aren't affiliated with QUECHUA to test, improve and validate our products.

Stockage tips
Store in a dark, dry and well-ventilated place.

Maintenance tips
Use the brush and/or sponge to clean the shoe and remove dirt or mud residue. Rub with the brush always in the same direction to restore the original appearance to the nubuck. Do not use shoe cream or waterproof grease on split leather. While it will not damage the leather, it will change the look of your shoe.

Waterproof and hardy indeed
Used for 2 to 8 weeks
I wanted shoes that would be waterproof, and these shoes held on through days of rough motor biking and high-altitude climbing. I had even the misfortune of being caught in a snowstorm at 5000 + m in the night, and these shoes definitely saved me. The only noted disadvantage is the small front end. I had to have soles changed and live through blisters before I could truly enjoy this pair. Also, I had to buy a small size in men's. Why is the women's not available easily? :-/
As always, very satisfying
Used for 2 to 8 weeks
I used this shoe for my recent stok kangri expedition and the shoe met my expectation. The shoe is little heavy as compare to other brands,but that add on to the durabiltiy. The shoe worked well in the Boulder section and also in the loose scree/moraine. The grip of the shoe is also good. Initially the shoe feels less flexible but once it is breaked atleast 10 days prior you will feel it as a part of your body.

The water proofing of shoe is quite good but when it comes to a rocky section the shoe grip is not up to the mark and if you are not walking with extra caution you have a high chance of slipping down.
Value for money, functional
Used for 3 to 6 months
A great product, my Everest base camp trek is at the end of the month so the real review would get updated sometime in October once the boots go to 17500 feet and back
DO NOT BUY
Used for 2 to 8 weeks
In less than a month the outer shell started chipping away. Bad Quality. Bad Product. Really bad service from the employees.
Response of the brand
Hello Sagar,

Thank you for sharing your feedback about the Trekking Shoes with us. We are sorry to hear about the unpleasant experience you have had with us.
Leather shoe cracks could happen due to aging which depends on the storage and maintenance, or it could also have happened due to a manufacturing error from our end. It is not normal for this to happen within a span of just 3 months. I would advise you to bring the shoes to any of our stores so that our team could understand this better and assist you accordingly.

Hope to see you soon in our store. I remain available for any further queries :)

Golf ball sized blisters
Used for 2 to 8 weeks
My husband bought these to do a 32 mile charity walk and his feet were shredded by the end of it. He bought a size larger as recommended in store and wore gel insoles but said there was no cushioning around the heel and sole and even walking them in for 3 weeks before hand didn't break them in as the material is so tough. He has an even bigger walk to do at the end of the month and putting these shoes on is filling him with dread. Not what we expected for a £70 pair of boots.
