LOCATION OF PRACTICE
This soleâ€™s design is the result of long-term research carried out in our labs. It is composed of a specific rubber formula which optimises grip and resistance. Given the variety of different needs, we always seek the best compromise between muddy off-road trails (like a woodland path) and mineral trails (like a coastal path).
Our walking shoes are designed for use on country footpaths. We choose and test the components of the sole and uppers of our shoes to best adapt to the practice of walking on soft footpaths (for example, woodland earthy footpaths) or mineral footpaths (for example, rocky coastal footpaths). Road use (tarmac) may lead to premature wear of your shoes and cause discomfort. They are not suitable for mountain hiking.
Laboratory tests are conducted to test the following elements: secure attachment of eyelets and straps, gluing, toxicology, UV resistance, abrasion of the sole and the components of the upper, accelerated ageing. These tests allow us to improve the quality of our products and prevent premature wear of our hiking shoes.
Try on both shoes, standing up, with the socks worn for hiking. Try several models, several sizes if necessary. Check two comfort points: - the heel - the front of the foot when going downhill Avoid any compression points when trying on. Feel free to walk around the store. Break in your shoes gradually during their first walks to adapt them to your foot.
There are multiple factors which may cause blisters when you are walking: rubbing, a crease in the sock, moisture, a shoe size that is too small or too big, etc. It is therefore important to choose the right size and to have socks made of the right material for your walking shoes.
You need to choose the correct sock size for your feet to avoid any extra folds forming. These folds may form because the sock is too big and therefore there is too much material around your foot, or because the sock too small and is pulled towards the inside of your foot.
Moisture must be effectively managed when walking: we sweat, itâ€™s bound to happen. If your shoe is breathable, it will wick away moisture from your perspiration. It is therefore necessary to choose a light and breathable sock as well. If your shoes are relatively waterproof, you will not make the same choice to protect you from the moisture of the rain: choose a sock which will absorb your sweat, and direct it as far as possible away from your foot.
Although the waterproof membrane of these shoes is breathable, they do not eliminate the moisture of your perspiration as effectively as a ventilated shoe. You should opt for the NH100 High socks: they contain moisture-absorbing cotton and have a terry-knit construction that wicks moisture away from your foot. They are high enough to protect your ankle from the shoe. It is an excellent combination to reduce the chance of blisters.
Our walking shoes come with a 2-year guarantee. Our commitment? To offer you long-lasting products that you can use on all your country walks. Because the products we like the most are those with a story behind them that is still continuing!
We recommend that you store your shoes in a dry, dark place, if possible, well ventilated.
Our design team imagines, thinks up and designs Quechua products in France, at the foot of the Mont Blanc. We test them in the field with other hikers to make sure that they are comfortable and durable. The forest of Fontainebleau or even in Brittany for example. We visit as many trails as possible, in all weather conditions. These moments involve a lot of discussions. These are invaluable for getting your feedback and preparing our future collections!
