Product feature
  1. CrossContact sole
    The design of the sole is the product of extensive research in our laboratories, combined with a special rubber formula to optimise grip and traction. Given the range of different needs, we are always seeking the best compromise for walking on both wet and dry terrain.
  2. Fresh Concept
    A specific boot design combining a highly breathable upper and a sole construction that eliminates moisture. Laboratory-approved design that has been fully tried and tested by testers and users so that your feet stay dry on summer hikes https://d1065et7n9hdcp.cloudfront.net/__imageservlet/file/damimport/pj/024/f14719398129730/forclaz_fresh_man.jpg?variation=thumbnailBig
  3. Field tests
    The comfort of all our shoes is tested when trying them on and in use by typical users under the real-life conditions you will encounter in use. Our Mission Tests bring together the product manager with people who are not affiliated with Quechua to test, develop and approve the products.
  4. Laboratory testing
    Other laboratory tests are also conducted to pass the following: tear resistance of the eyelets and straps, resistance of adhesives, toxicology, UV resistance, resistance to abrasion of the outsole and upper components, accelerated ageing.
  5. What shoe size should you choose?
    On account of its extremely thin and breathable components, the sizing of the Forclaz 500 is big. You may need to take one size down.
  6. Buying tips
    Try on both shoes, while standing, with the socks worn for hiking. Try on several models or sizes if necessary. Check the following two comfort points: the base of the heel and the front part of the foot going downhill. There should be no pressure points when you try them on. 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.

    Is that product durable or not???
  • Flimsy/Poor Design

    Good delivery. Correct size. Simply did not fell comfortable and the heel always slipped. The size was perfect, but even though other, older Quechua shoes were perfect, this new design is a fail for me. After bearing with them for a couple of weeks and a collective time use of less than 5 days, I dropped them off in a charity bin - maybe someone else can make better use of them.

    This shoe is perfect for hot weather trekking. I have been using it for more than 1 year still in perfect shape. It keeps the foot cool. I would not recommend it for daily use as its sole is little hard.
