Footwear waterproofing test.

These boots, which have been laboratory and field tested, are equipped with a waterproof membrane that provides optimum waterproofing and breathability. First, the boot is immersed in water while internal air pressure is applied to check that no bubbles form on the surface of the footwear. Next, the boots are fitted to a mechanical arm that simulates walking and half-immersed in water so we can test that the inside remains perfectly dry.

3 levels of waterproofing.

In the impermeability test, we test 3 levels of waterproofing: 2000 flexes (about 2.5-mile walk), 4000 flexes (about 5-mile walk) 8000 flexes (about 10-mile walk). Of course, after this test or in use, the boot regains its original waterproofing once dry.

Footwear waterproof rating.

The TREK 500 boot has been tested and validated for 8000 flexes, equivalent to a 10-mile walk, in water reaching the middle of the upper.

Laboratory tests

Laboratory tests were conducted to test the following elements: - secure fastening of eyelets and hooks - sole assembly - toxicology - UV resistance - abrasion of the sole and upper components - accelerated aging.

Care instructions

Use a brush and/or sponge to clean the boot and remove dirt or mud residue. Then, air-dry away from any heat source. Finish with a nourishing cream to keep the leather nice and flexible and prolong the lifespan of the boot.

Buying tips

Try on both shoes, while standing up, with socks worn for hiking. Try several models and sizes if necessary. Check 2 comfort points: the heel seating and the front of the foot on a downward slope. Avoid all pressure points when trying them on. Don't hesitate to walk around the store. Gradually wear in your boots during your first few hikes so that they conform to your feet.


Trek 500 boots are made in the European Union, in Romania. Most of the materials are of European origin.

Care Instructions

Use the brush and/or sponge to clean the shoe and remove dirt or mud residue. Always brush in the same direction to give nubuck its original look. The use of cream or waterproof grease on split leather is not recommended. This is not problematic in itself, but it would change the shoe's esthetic look.
