    Product feature
    1. Waterproofing test
      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.
    2. 3 levels of waterproofing
      During the waterproofing test, we test 3 levels of waterproofing: 2,000 flexes (around 2 hours of walking), 4,000 flexes (around 4 hours of walking) and 8,000 flexes (around 8 hours of walking). Of course, after this test or in use, the shoe regains its original waterproofing once dry.
    3. Waterproofing level
      The Forclaz 100 Woman's High boot is waterproof for 4000 flexes.
    4. Buying tips
      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.
    5. What size should I choose?
      For hiking, you may need a size larger than your usual size to guarantee optimal comfort while going downhill, and avoid your toes bumping the end of the shoes. Tip: keep your toenails short, and before going downhill at any time, check that your laces are tight enough to stop your feet slipping down towards the front of the shoes.
    6. Field test
      All our shoes undergo use and comfort tests carried out by users who represent the target market in conditions identical to those found in typical use. Our Field Test Missions team up the product manager with people who aren't affiliated with QUECHUA, to test, improve, and validate our products.
    7. Laboratory test
      Other laboratory tests are also conducted to approve the quality of the following components: removal of eyelets and straps, glueing, toxicology, UV resistance, sole an upper component abrasion, premature ageing.
    Product testing
    1. Composition
      Polyester and split leather upper; EVA midsole, rubber sole.
    2. Storage advice
      Store in a dark, dry and well-ventilated place.
    3. Cleaning advice
      Use the brush and/or sponge to clean the shoe and remove dirt or mud residue. The use of cream or waterproof grease on split leather is not recommended. It’s not a problem as such, but could change the aesthetics of the shoe. Re-waterproof regularly using

      Good shoes .. bought it for my 10 day spiti trip.. thankfully I invested in these shoes... After that i have used it like for 6 times for 2-3 day treks.. and they are totally comfortable till now.. it is always recommended to buy a half size bigger than the usual shoe size one wears..
      One less stat for less cushioning..
      When i bought it these were labeled as forclaz500 ,now it was written forclaz100?,just a query.
      Cheerstonature!
    • Good grip and decently waterproof

      I bought these for a 10 day trip to Spiti Valley. The grip of the shoes was brilliant. It only gave me confidence in the loose rocky terrain. They also seem to be decently waterproof, however when it started raining, the top of the shoe began to feel slightly moist. But all in all, a great purchase.
    • Good but not waterproof

      Have been using it for a year now. Good for 1 day hikes. Would have given a higher rating but they are not waterproof as they claim to be.
