LOCATION OF PRACTICE
The sole’s design is the result of extensive research carried out in our labs. It is composed of a specific rubber formula that optimises grip and traction. As no two requirements are ever the same, we automatically look for the best compromise for walking on loose off-road trails, like a forest path.
Our hiking shoes are designed for use on off-road trails. We choose the components of the sole and upper of our shoes and test them to make sure that they are suitable for walking on loose off-road terrain (like an earthy forest path) or hard, stony trails (like rocky coastal paths). Use on the road (tarmac) may lead to premature wear on your shoes and cause discomfort. They are not suitable for mountain walking.
Laboratory tests were conducted to test the following elements: secure attachment of eyelets and straps, gluing, toxicology, resistance to UV rays, abrasion of the sole and upper components, accelerated ageing. These tests allow us to improve the quality of our products and prevent premature wear of our hiking shoes.
For these shoes, we have chosen components that are more respectful of the environment: - natural, chrome-free leather -Upper (front of the shoe, tongue and top of the shoe): 100% recycled polyester - tongue and ankle support lining: 100% recycled polyester - Laces and loops: 100% recycled polyester - Insole: 85% recycled polyurethane foam & 100% recycled polyester lining - Outsole: 30% recycled rubber
We use a leather called nubuck. It has a soft, silky feel. The leather used on these shoes comes from cows. We do not kill any animals to obtain this leather: we only use waste from the food industry. The leather on these shoes comes from French skins which are then tanned in Spain.
After your hikes, we advise you to: - Dry your shoes away from any heat sources - Brush the dry leather vigorously with a stiff brush to remove mud and dirt - Use a crepe brush or nubuck rubber to remove stains - If the stains persist, clean with a brush and a little warm water - Leave to dry - Brush again with a stiff brush - Use spray-on waterproofing: this will make the leather shine and bring out the colours
Try on both shoes, standing up, with the socks worn for hiking. Try several models and sizes if necessary. Check the following two areas of comfort: - the heel seating - the front of the foot on a downward slope Avoid any pressure points when fitting. Feel free to walk around the store. Break in your shoes gradually over the course of a few hikes.
There are several things that may cause blisters while walking: rubbing, a crease in the sock, moisture, a boot 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 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 and there is too much fabric around your foot, or because the sock too small and is pulled down into the shoe.
Moisture must be effectively managed when walking: we all sweat, it’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. Whereas if your shoes are waterproof, to protect you from the moisture of the rain, you'll need to choose something different: you need a sock that will absorb your sweat, and wick it 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 NH500 Low or Mid socks: contain moisture-absorbing cotton and have a reverse terry-knit construction that wicks moisture away from your foot. They are high enough to protect your ankle from the shoe. It's an excellent combination for reducing the chance of blisters.
Our hiking shoes are guaranteed for 2 years. Our commitment? To offer you long-lasting products that you can use on all your country hikes and walks. Because the products we love the most are those that have a story behind them... and plenty of life in them yet!

Our design team conceives, designs and creates all of our Quechua products at the foot of Mont Blanc, in France. We test them in the field with other hikers, to check their comfort and durability. In the Forest of Fontainebleau or in Brittany for example. we go to as many different places as possible, in all weather conditions. It's a great opportunity to discuss things, and an invaluable way of obtaining your feedback and preparing our future collections!
