Grippy soles on natural footpaths
This sole’s design is the result of long-term research carried out in our laboratories. We chose a specific rubber formula which optimises grip and resistance. Since not all needs are the same, we are always looking for the best solution to develop on loose, country trails such as unpaved forest paths.
Designed for use on country trails
Our walking shoes are designed for use on off-road trails. Indeed, we choose the components of the sole and upper of our boots and test them to ensure that they are ideally suited to walking on loose trails (e.g. unpaved forest paths) or rocky trails (e.g. rocky coastal paths). Road use (tarmac) may lead to premature wear on your boots and cause discomfort. They are not suitable for mountain walking.
To reduce our environmental impact
For these shoes, we have chosen components that are more respectful of the environment: the fabrics used are 100% recycled polyester. In addition, we used manufacturing waste that we ground up and reused to make our sole. In total, 28% of the weight of the shoe is made of more environmentally friendly components.
Laboratory tests were conducted to test the following elements: tearing of the eyelets and straps, stitching, 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.
How to choose the right size walking shoe?
Try on both boots, while standing, with the socks worn for hiking. Try on several models or sizes if necessary. Check two comfort points: - 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. Gradually wear in your shoes over the course of a few hikes so that they conform to your feet.
The shoe/sock combination plays an important role
There are multiple factors which may cause blisters when you are 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 boots.
How to choose the size of my walking socks?
You must choose the right sock size for your foot so that there are no additional creases in the sock: If your socks are too big, there will be too much material around your feet, if your socks are too small, they will get pulled inside the shoe.
How to choose the fabric of my walking socks
Moisture must be effectively managed when walking: We 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. If your boots 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.
What socks should you wear with the NH500 FRESH boot?
We recommend that you choose a pair of socks made of polyamide, without cotton. Polyamide is a fibre that is specially chosen for its moisture-wicking properties. So when you sweat, socks made of polyamide will wick away any moisture, after which your shoes will take over the task of transferring the moisture to the outside through the ventilated mesh. For this, we recommend our Newfeel WS500 Fresh socks.
Our hiking boots 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 that we love the most are those that have lived the most adventures and will continue to live them!
We recommend that you keep your boots away from the damp and light, and if possible in a ventilated place.
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. From the Forest of Fontainebleau, to Brittany and even Corsica, 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!
