LEVEL OF PRACTICE
LOCATION OF PRACTICE
Footwear waterproofing test: tested in laboratory and actual usage conditions, the shoes are equipped with waterproof and breathable membrane to provide optimal protection from rain. First, the shoe is immersed in water while internal air pressure is applied to check that no bubbles form on the surface of the footwear. They are then placed on a mechanical arm that simulated walking, when half immersed in water: we then check that the inside of the shoe is perfectly dry.
3 levels of waterproofing
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 Arpenaz 100 Mid Ndy shoe is waterproof for 2000 flexes.
All our shoes are tested for user comfort and comfort in use, by a panel of users and in identical conditions to those you will encounter in use. Our "Missions Tests" put the product manager in contact with people who are not affiliated with Quechua to test, develop and validate the products.
Other laboratory tests are also conducted to approve the quality of the following components: Tearing of the eyelets and straps, stitching, toxicology, UV resistance, abrasion of the sole and the components of the upper, accelerated ageing.
Store in a dark, dry and well-ventilated place.
All our models are tested by users representative of our target market in conditions identical to those you will encounter when using them. We believe that testing in real life scenarios is the only way to continuously improve the technical suitability and design of our QUECHUA products.
