    Product feature
    1. SNOWCONTACT technology.
      SNOWCONTACT soles are tested and certified in the laboratory and within the field, to offer excellent adherence and maximum grip across all types of winter terrain (snow and ice). The specific component and contact surface ensures excellent adherence on slippery terrain. The optimised design of the studs offers maximum grip on gradients.
    2. 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.
    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 500 Active Warm boot is waterproof for 8000 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. 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 shoes. 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.

    • A good versatile boot

      Used for 2 to 8 weeks
      I bought these boots for my trip to Lapland. I preferred them to snow boots because I don't often visit places with lots of snow. They were warm enough to walk on snow and ice up to -12°. They were also comfortable for walking around in town. I will definitely use them in multiple occasions. Stylish as well, much better than the usual pink/purple/furry snow boots available for women.
    • Brilliant boots.

      Reference to them being slightly narrow (I could only select moderate) is due more to the fact that I have a very high instep and the more I wear them the more they bed in. I have worn them for walking in the UK and also as snowboots in the Alps. They are comfortable and they kept me warm and dry in the snow and never slipped once, they offer good support plus being totally manmade is brilliant for me being Vegan. Excellent boots.
