    Product feature
    1. SNOWCONTACT technology.
      The SNOWCONTACT soles are tested and certified in the laboratory and in the field, to offer excellent grip and maximum traction on all types of winter terrain (snow and ice). Its specific component and contact surface provide excellent grip on slippery terrain. The optimised lug pattern offers maximum grip on slopes.
    2. Footwear waterproofing test.
      The footwear is laboratory and field tested to ensure optimal waterproofing and breathability. 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, half immersed in water so we can test that the inside remains perfectly dry.
    3. 3 levels of waterproofing.
      During the waterproofing tests, we test 3 levels of waterproofing, with 2000 flexes (approx. equivalent to a 4 km walk), 4000 flexes (approx. equivalent to an 8 km walk) and 8000 flexes (approx. equivalent to a 16 km walk). Of course, after this test or in use, the shoe regains its original waterproofing once dry.
    4. Shoe waterproofing level.
      The 100 Warm High boots remain waterproof after 2000 flexes.
    5. Field tests.
      All our shoes are tested for wearing comfort and comfort in use by users who are representative of the target market, under the same conditions as those that will be experienced in real-life use. In particular, our Mission Tests bring the product manager together with people who are not affiliated with QUECHUA to test, improve and approve the products.
    6. Measurement of the boots' thermal insulation.
      It was not previously possible to give a precise idea of the temperature at which your shoes would still insulate your feet from the cold. Now it can be done: the temperature limits for use are shown on your Quechua shoes. By testing how cold people feel in the field and in the lab with a panel of customers, we measure the thermal insulation of our footwear. We take into consideration the differences between men and women.
    7. Lab tests.
      Laboratory tests were conducted to test the following elements: attachment of eyelets and straps, gluing, toxicology, UV resistance, abrasion of the sole and upper component, accelerated ageing.

      Gintautiene (United Kingdom)
      Used for 2 to 8 weeks
      Comfortable lightweight shoes.
    • Great value waterproof boot

      ROSIE (United Kingdom)
      Used for 2 to 8 weeks
      Comfortable waterproof boot, perfect for walking on snow and slippy surfaces.
    • Looks good but not really efficient

      Valerie (United Kingdom)
      Used for 7 to 12 months
      Looks good and fit well. Quite confortable.
      Annoyingly the top hooks don't lock the laces in place like on a walking boots.
      They are waterproof but no way near warm enough (sole not insulated enough) even if not walking on on snow.
