Footwear waterproofing test: tested in the laboratory and genuine usage conditions, equipped with waterproof and breathable layer, to offer excellent protection from the rain. Our Field Test Missions team up the product manager with people who aren't affiliated with QUECHUA, to test, improve, and validate our products. Next, shoes are fitted to a mechanical arm that simulates walking and half immersed in water so we can test that the inside remains perfectly dry.
3 levels of waterproofing
During the waterproofing test, we test 3 levels of waterproofing: 2000 flexes (about a 4 km walk), 4000 flexes (about an 8 km walk) and 8000 flexes (about a 16 km walk). Of course, after this test or in use, the shoe regains its original waterproofing once dry.
Laboratory tests were conducted to test the following elements: - tearing of the eyelets and straps
- bonding of the sole
- UV resistance
- abrasion of the sole and components of the upper
- accelerated ageing.
Try on both shoes, standing up, with the socks worn for hiking. Try on several models or sizes if necessary. 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. Don't hesitate to walk around the store. Gradually start using you shoes during your first few hiking trips to break them in.
