Footwear waterproofing test.
Tested in laboratory and in use, these boots, equipped with a Waterproof membrane, will ensure optimal 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 waterproofing test, we test 3 levels of waterproofing: 2000 flexions (approx. 4 km walk), 4000 flexions (approx. 8 km walk) 8000 flexions (approx. 16 km walk). Of course, after this test or use, as soon as the product is dry, the shoe regains its original waterproof properties.
Footwear waterproof rating.
The TREK 500 W boot has passed the waterproofing test involving 8000 flexes, i.e. 16 km of walking in water up to the middle of the upper.
Laboratory tests were conducted to test the following elements: - secure attachment of eyelets and hooks - sole assembly - toxicology - UV resistance - abrasion of the sole and upper components - accelerated ageing.
Use a brush and/or 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 lifespan of the shoe.
Try on both shoes, standing up, with socks worn for hiking. Try several models and sizes if necessary. Check two comfort points: the heel fit and the front of the foot on a downward slope. Avoid any pressure points when fitting. Don't hesitate to walk around the store. Gradually wear in your boots during your first few hikes to break them in.
The TREK 500 shoes are made in the European Union, in Romania. Most materials are sourced in European Union.
Store away from moisture in a ventilated room.
