    1. Crosscontact sole
      Lengthy lab research into the design of the sole, combined with a special rubber formulation which optimises the balance between traction and adhesion. We aim for the best compromise for walking on dry and slippery terrain, knowing that the needs are not the same.
    2. Fresh Concept
      A specific boot design combining a highly breathable upper and a sole construction allowing the evacuation of humidity. Laboratory-approved design, fully tried and tested by testers and users, guaranteeing that your feet will always feel dry on summer hikes https://d1065et7n9hdcp.cloudfront.net/__imageservlet/file/damimport/pj/024/f14719398129730/forclaz_fresh_man.jpg?variation=thumbnailBig
    3. Field test
      All our shoes are tested in comfort and in use by users who represent those, for whom the products are designed, under conditions identical to those that you can find in use. Our "Missions Tests" put the product manager in contact with people who are not affiliated with Quechua to test, develop and validate the products.
    4. Laboratory test
      Other laboratory tests are also conducted to approve the quality of the following components: Arpenaz 100 high Warm shoes are waterproof for 2,000 flexes.
    5. What size should I choose?
      On account of its extremely thin and breathable components, the Forclaz 500 has a large fit. You may need a size below.
    6. Buying tips
      Try on both shoes, standing up, with the socks worn for hiking. Try on several models or sizes, if necessary. 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. Gradually start using your boots during your first few hiking trips to break them in.

    • Hot shoes!

      06/07/2017
      Vid (United Kingdom)
      Used for 2 to 8 weeks
      I bought these shoes as I used similar merel shoes for a couple of years now, but these looked more durable on the outside.
      After using them a couple of times I realised these are way hotter, even when its 20degC and sunny. I expected them to be very airy, because of the mesh construction, but it seems that all the plastic used just does not dissipate heat well...
      I like how they look like though and they do fit my foot quite well.
      Another problem is the tongue gets easily crinkled, so I need to take care when I put them on so they do not hurt.
      I would recommend buying the Merrell Maipo over these shoes for comfort, but the Quechua might be more durable as they don't have as many laces on the outside of the shoe, which can get torn.
    • Good shoes

    • Once Worn in, Great Shoes!

      MOSHE (United Kingdom)
      Used for 7 to 12 months
      Took a while to wear them in from new - I almost gave up on them... But once worn in they have become my shoes of choice for hikes, cycling and even as casual shoes as I find them quite attractive in an understated way. I added "glow" lime stretch laces purchased cheaply from that well-known sports goods store.
