    Product feature
    1. Waterproofing test
      Footwear waterproofing test: laboratory- and field-tested, shoes with a breathable, waterproof membrane ensure you have optimum protection from the rain. 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 half immersed in water, the shoes are fitted to a mechanical arm that simulates walking 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. Waterproofing level
      The women’s Forclaz 100 High waterproof shoe goes beyond the level of 4000 flexes level.
    4. Purchasing tips
      Try on both shoes, standing up, wearing hiking socks. Try on several styles and several sizes, if needed. Check two comfort points: the base of the heel and the front part of the foot going down. Avoid all pressure points when trying them on. Don't hesitate to walk around the store. Wear your shoes in gradually during the first hikes, to mould them to your foot.
    5. What shoe size do I choose?
      For hiking, try taking one shoe size up from your usual to ensure optimal comfort when going downhill and to prevent your toes from hitting the toe box. Tip: keep your toenails short and before descending, check that your lacing will stop your foot from sliding towards the front of the shoe.
    6. Field test
      All our shoes are tested for comfort and use by representative users under conditions identical to those found when in use. Our Missions Tests link up the product manager with people who are not affiliated to Quechua to test, develop and approve the products.
    7. Laboratory test
      Other laboratory tests are also conducted to approve the quality of the following components: torn eyelets and straps, bonding, toxicology, UV resistance, abrasion of the sole and the components of the upper, accelerated aging.
    Product testing
    1. Composition
      Polyester and split leather upper; EVA midsole, rubber sole.
    2. Storage advice
      store in a dark, dry and well-ventilated place.
    3. Cleaning advice
      Use the brush and/or sponge to clean the shoe and remove dirt or mud residue. The use of cream or waterproof grease on split leather is not recommended. While it will not damage the leather, it will change the aspect of your boots. Re-waterproof regularly
    4. Product restrictions
      not suitable for trekking.
    5. Product catchline
      Support, waterproofing and breathability. Featuring numerous reinforced areas and a two-hook fastening system, the FORCLAZ 500 is the perfect companion for exploring alpine passes.

      Good shoes .. bought it for my 10 day spiti trip.. thankfully I invested in these shoes... After that i have used it like for 6 times for 2-3 day treks.. and they are totally comfortable till now.. it is always recommended to buy a half size bigger than the usual shoe size one wears..
      One less stat for less cushioning..
      When i bought it these were labeled as forclaz500 ,now it was written forclaz100?,just a query.
      Cheerstonature!
    • Good grip and decently waterproof

      I bought these for a 10 day trip to Spiti Valley. The grip of the shoes was brilliant. It only gave me confidence in the loose rocky terrain. They also seem to be decently waterproof, however when it started raining, the top of the shoe began to feel slightly moist. But all in all, a great purchase.
    • Good but not waterproof

      Have been using it for a year now. Good for 1 day hikes. Would have given a higher rating but they are not waterproof as they claim to be.
