Made for Our hiker-designers developed these boots to be worn during your short hikes on lowlands, in forests or along the coast, in dry weather. Our motivation? To offer comfortable and lightweight mid-height boots that provide good grip on relatively flat country trails. With a very affordable price!
The sole design is the product of a lengthy research process conducted in our laboratories, which has been combined with a special rubber formulation to optimise grip and traction. Given the variety of different needs, we always seek the best compromise between muddy off-road trails (like a forest path) and mineral trails (like a coastal path).
Designed for use on country paths
Our hiking boots are designed for use on country trails. Indeed, we choose the components of the sole and upper of our boots and test them to ensure that they are ideally suited to hiking on loose trails (e.g. forest paths made of soil) or rocky trails (e.g. rocky coastal paths). The boots may wear prematurely and feel uncomfortable when used on roads (tarmac). They are not suitable for mountain walking.
How to choose the correct size of hiking boot
Try on both boots, while standing, with the socks worn for hiking. Try on several models or sizes if necessary. Check the following two comfort points: the bottom of the heel and the front of the foot going downhill. There should be no pressure points when trying them on. Feel free to walk around the store. Gradually wear in your boots over the course of a few hikes so that they conform to your feet.
Laboratory tests are conducted to validate the following elements: tearing of the eyelets and straps, gluing, toxicology, UV resistance, abrasion of the sole and the components of the upper, accelerated ageing.
The boot/sock combination plays an important role.
Many things cause blisters when hiking: rubbing, a crease in the sock, moisture, a boot size that is too small or too big, etc.
It is therefore important choose the right size and to have socks made of the right material for your hiking boots.
How to choose the size of your hiking socks
You must choose the right sock size for your foot so that there are no additional creases in the sock: either because the sock is too big resulting in too much material around your foot, or because the sock is too small resulting in extra material getting pulled inside the boot.
How to choose the material of your hiking socks
Moisture must be effectively managed when hiking: this is often unavoidable given that we perspire.
If your boot is breathable, it will eliminate your perspiration: in this case, you need to choose a lightweight sock that is also breathable
If your boot is relatively waterproof, you will need to make a different choice to protect yourself from rainwater: it is preferable to buy socks that will absorb perspiration, to keep the moisture as far away as possible from your foot.
Which pair of socks is suitable for the NH100 boots?
Although this type of footwear offers some breathability, it is not sufficient to eliminate all the perspiration. It is preferable to wear them with NH100 Mid socks: they contain cotton that absorbs moisture and they have a plush loop construction under the sock that keeps the moisture away from your foot. What's more, they are high enough to protect your ankle from the boot. This is an excellent combination for reducing blisters.
Our hiking boots are guaranteed for 2 years.
Our commitment? To offer you durable products you can take with you on all your country walks. Because the products we like the most are those with a story behind them that is still ongoing!
Store in a dark, dry and well-ventilated place.
It is in France, at the foot of the Mont Blanc, that our design team imagined, thought up and designed the Quechua products. We test them in the field with other hikers to make sure that they are comfortable and durable. Whether it is the Forest of Fontainebleau or Brittany for example, we visit as many trails as possible, in all weather conditions. These moments involve a lot of discussions. We use this to get your feedback and prepare our future collections!
