    Product feature
    1. Footwear waterproofing test
      The footwear is laboratory and field tested to ensure optimal 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 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.
    3. Shoe waterproofing level.
      The boots 900 Active Warm are waterproof 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. Also, the SNOWCONTACT soles are more effective 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.
    Product testing
    1. Composition
      Split leather upper, synthetic fur lining, EVA midsole, rubber outsole.
    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 look of your shoe.
    4. Product restrictions
      Not suitable for glacier hiking.
    5. Product catchline
      SNOWCONTACT sole lets you walk safely and confidently on all types of snow. The Inuit 700 is designed for regular snowshoeing.
