    Product feature
    1. 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.
    2. Measurement of the boots' thermal insulation.
      It used to be impossible to tell the precise temperature up to which your shoes would protect you. Now it can be done: Lab tests.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. During the waterproofing test, we test 3 levels of waterproofing: 2,000 flexes (walking approx. 4 km), 4,000 flexes (walking approx. 8 km) and 8,000 flexes (walking approx.16 km).
    3. Footwear waterproofing test.
      The boots, which are lab and field tested, provide optimum waterproofing and breathability. To start, they are immersed in water with pressurised air inside to check that no bubbles form on the surface of the boot. 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.
    4. Field tests.
      All our boots are tested in use and for comfort by users who are representative of the target market under conditions that replicate those you will experience in use. Our Field Test Missions team up the product manager with people unconnected with QUECHUA, to test, improve, and validate our products.
    5. Measuring our boots' thermal insulation.
      Previously, there was no accurate way of measuring the minimum temperature at which your boots protect you. Now it can be done: the temperature limits for use are shown on your Quechua shoes. Using subjective sensory chill tests conducted in the field and in the lab with a panel of customers, we measure the thermal resistance of our boots when the user is moving and stationary. During the waterproofing test, we test 3 levels of waterproofing: 2,000 flexes, 4,000 flexes and 8,000 flexes.
    6. Shoe waterproofing level.
      Laboratory tests were conducted to test the following elements: Arpenaz 100 high Warm shoes are waterproof for 2,000 flexes.
    7. Field tests.
      All our boots are tested in use and for comfort by users who are representative of the target market under conditions that replicate those you will experience in 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.
    8. Measuring our boots' thermal insulation.
      Previously, there was no accurate way of measuring the minimum temperature at which your boots protect you. Now it can be done: the temperature limits for use are shown on your Quechua boots. Using subjective sensory chill tests conducted in the field and in the lab with a panel of customers, we measure the thermal resistance of our boots when the user is moving and stationary. We take into account the differences in sensing cold between men and women.
    9. Lab tests.
      Laboratory tests were conducted to test the following elements: attachment of eyelets and webbing, assembly, toxicology, UV resistance, sole and upper component abrasion, accelerated ageing.

      Used for More than 2 years
      I'm on my 3rd pair they are just wonderful, replaced wellies with these years ago, brilliant in the rain and snow, little slippy on ice but no more than a standard shoe/ boot
      Also wore these on the motorbike until I got correct footwear, they are very warm and durable not to mention fashionable
    • Exactly as ordered

    • Lovely looking boots, but...

      I bought these boots and they look really good and go discreetly with my jeans for walks. However, walking in them is okay for around 20 minutes. After this you can feel the soles and they are not supportive. My soles, ankles were really hurting. I have bought many other walking shoes from this store and I have to say they have been outstanding. But these sit in my cupboard and do not get used, apart from if it may snow. Way tooo painful and do not support the feet properly. So not a great buy and would not recommend.

      Thanks for your feedback on the Arpenaz 50 warm boots, I apologise for the inconvenience caused by the comfort of the sole. I have passed your comments on to the product engineer. If you remain dissatisfied with boots you may still exchange them at any of our stores if purchased within the last 365 days.
