Product feature
  1. Waterproofing test
    Footwear waterproofing test: tested in laboratory and actual usage conditions, the shoes are equipped with waterproof and breathable membrane to provide optimal protection from rain. First, the shoe is immersed in water while internal air pressure is applied to check that no bubbles form on the surface of the footwear. 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: 2000 flexes (around 2 hours of walking), 4000 flexes (around 4 hours of walking) and 8000 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 your boots during your first few hiking trips to break them in.
  5. Which size should I select?
    When taking up hiking, do not hesitate to take a size above your usual shoe size to guarantee an optimal comfort when walking downhill and to prevent your toes rubbing the tops of the shoe. Tip: nails must be cut short, and before descending, check that the laces stop the foot from slipping forward to the front of the shoe.
  6. Field test
    All our shoes undergo comfort and use tests carried out by users who are representative of our target market, in conditions identical to those found in typical use. Our "Missions Tests" put the product manager in contact with people who are not affiliated with Quechua to test, develop and validate the products.
  7. Laboratory tests
    Other laboratory tests are also conducted to approve the quality of the following components: Tearing of the eyelets and straps, stitching, toxicology, UV resistance, abrasion of the sole and the components of the upper, accelerated 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. While it will not damage the leather, it will change the aspect of your boots. Re-waterproof regularly
  4. Product restrictions
    not suitable for trekking.
  5. Product catchline
    Support, waterproofing and breathability. Featuring numerous reinforced areas and a two-hook fastening system, the FORCLAZ 500 is the perfect companion for exploring alpine passes.

    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.

    Toller Schuh, vom ersten Meter an superbequem. Fällt allerdings klein aus. Passt aber toll an meine eher breiten Füße. Trage ihn fast täglich zum Hundespaziergang.
