Technical Information

Crosscontact sole
The sole design is the product of a lengthy research and development process conducted in our laboratories, combined with a special rubber formulation to optimise grip and traction. Given the range of different needs, we are always seeking the best compromise for walking on both wet and dry terrain.
Waterproofing test
Footwear waterproofing test: these shoes, which have been tested in the laboratory and the field, have a breathable, waterproof membrane for optimum protection in the rain. First, the boot is immersed in water while the air pressure inside is increased to check that no bubbles form on the surface. 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.
Waterproofing level
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. The Forclaz 500 Waterproof passes the 8000 flexes test.
Prolonging the waterproof properties
A boot's waterproofing is often undermined by water getting in from the top of the shoe. To keep your feet dry for longer, we recommend wearing waterproof gaiters or mini-gaiters to protect the top part of the boots and prevent water, pebbles, sand, etc. from getting inside. To restore the original water repellent properties and prevent staining the outer surface, spray with a waterproof spray several times per year.
Buying tips
Try on both shoes, standing up, with the socks worn for hiking. Try on several models or 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. Always walk around the store. Wear your shoes in gradually during the first hikes, to mould them to your foot.
What boot size should I choose?
For hiking, don't hesitate to try one size above your usual size for maximum comfort in descents and to prevent your toes from touching the front of the boot. Advice: before any descent, make sure that your toe nails are clipped and that your laces are tightened so that your feet cannot slide forwards in the boot.

Used for 1 week or less
I wore these shoes on a recent trip to a forest where I walked for around 19KM in 2 days. These shoes are very comfortable and the sole is quite soft which makes walking on light hikes and forest trails very comfortable. I upgraded to these after using Forclaz 500 for around 5 years and it I have zero regrets/complaints with these shoes.
