LEVEL OF PRACTICE
The design of the sole has been the subject of long research at our laboratories, combined with a specific rubber formulation to offer the best compromise between grip and traction. As the requirements are not the same, we systematically search for the best compromise to develop our designs on muddy as well as dry terrain.
During the waterproofing test, we test 3 levels of impermeability, i.e. 2000 flexes (about 2 hours of walking), 4000 flexes (about 4 hours of walking) and 8000 flexes (about 8 hours of walking). The MH120 MID children's shoe is waterproof for 4000 flexes.
A shoe's waterproofing is often undermined by water getting in from the top of the shoe. Using waterproof gaiters or mini gaiters is therefore recommended to keep your feet dry for longer by protecting the top part of your shoes and prevent water from getting in as well as pebbles, sand, etc. Use of a re-waterproofing spray is recommended several times per year. This will help your shoes recover their original water repellent qualities and combat outer stains.
Get your child to try on both shoes while standing up, with socks they would normally wear for hiking. 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. Gradually start using you shoes during your first few hiking trips to break them in. On the internet, you can print the pedometer and check your child’s foot length.
For hiking, try taking one shoe size up from your usual to ensure optimum comfort when going downhill and to prevent your toes from hitting the toe box. Tip: keep your nails short and, before making your descent, check that your lacing prevents your foot from sliding towards the front of the boot.
The comfort of all our shoes is tested when trying them on and in use by typical users under the real-life conditions you will encounter in use. Our Mission Tests bring together the product manager with people who are not affiliated with Quechua to test, develop and approve the products.
Other laboratory tests are also conducted to validate the following elements: tearing of eyelets and straps, bonding, toxicology, UV resistance, abrasion of sole and upper components, accelerated ageing.
