    Product feature
    1. Footwear waterproofing test.
      The footwear equipped with the NOVADRY® technology is tested in the lab and in the field to guarantee the best possible 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.
    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. Shoe waterproofing level.
      The 500 Warm waterproof boots are water resistant up to 8,000 flexes.
    4. SNOWCONTACT technology.
      SNOWCONTACT soles are made using a special component. Designs are optimised to provide excellent all-terrain grip and maximal traction all winter long. What's more, the SNOWCONTACT soles are more efficient than traditional soles on snow.
    5. Field tests.
      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 Field Test Missions team up the product manager with people who aren't affiliated with QUECHUA, to test, improve, and validate our 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. Using cold sensing tests while hiking and in the lab with a panel of customers, we measured the thermal resistance of our boots while active and at rest. 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, fixtures, toxicology, UV resistance, sole and upper component abrasion, advanced ageing.

      Yo used these when went skiing, very comfy and great to walk in the snow in, read other reviews before I bought them and they were saying that the size comes up a bit big, so being a size 9 I order an 8 1/2 and they fitted perfectly.
    • Excellent shoes

      I bought a pair of 'em for my trek to Kuari Pass, and they were really comfortable and obviously waterproof.
      I wish to buy another pair for my friend (size 8) for my friend, but it seem to be unavailable since a couple of weeks at Decathlon Howrah. I want them before 1st February, please try to arrange one for me.

      Not worn for long treks or anything like that but used primarily to walk the dog, so typically 10 miles at a time. So far so good, no breaking in required and have been fully waterproof in the recent snow.
      very comfortable, excellent value for money
