Made for Co-designed with a group of trekking enthusiasts, these boots are for walking on RUGGED TRAILS with maximum grip and safety. the TREK 500 boot has a sole that allows the foot to roll through more freely, while being more rigid than the TREK 100. Its full-grain leather upper offers support and great durability.
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 internal air pressure is applied to check that no bubbles form on the surface of the footwear. Next, the boots are fitted to a mechanical arm that simulates walking and half-immersed in water so we can test that the inside remains perfectly dry.
3 levels of waterproofing.
In the impermeability test, we test 3 levels of waterproofing:
2000 flexes (about 4 km walk)
4000 flexes (about 8 km walk)
8000 flexes (about 16 km walk).
Of course, after this test or in use, the boot regains its original waterproofing once dry.
Footwear waterproof rating.
The TREK 500 boot has been tested and validated for 8000 flexes, equivalent to a 16 km walk, in water reaching the middle of the upper.
Laboratory tests were conducted to test the following elements:
- secure fastening of eyelets and hooks
- sole assembly
- UV resistance
- abrasion of the sole and upper components
- accelerated ageing.
Use a brush and/or sponge to clean the boot and remove dirt or mud residue.
Then, air dry away from any heat source.
Finish with a nourishing cream to keep the leather nice and flexible and prolong the lifespan of the boot.
