Footwear waterproofing test
Tested in laboratory and in use, these shoes, equipped with a Waterproof membrane, will ensure optimal impermeability 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.
3 levels of waterproofing
During the impermeability test, 3 levels of impermeability are tested:
2000 flexions (approximately 2.5 mi walk)
4000 flexions (approximately 5 mi walk)
8000 flexions (approximately 10 mi walk).
Of course, after this test or in use, the shoe regains its original waterproofing once dry.
Shoe waterproofing level
The TREK 900 shoe is validated on the impermeability test in 8000 flexions or 9.9 mi walk in water up to mid-upper.
Laboratory tests were conducted to test the following elements:
- torn hooks and eyelets
- bonding of the sole
- UV resistance
- abrasion of the sole and of the components of the upper
- accelerated aging.
Use a brush and/or a sponge to clean the shoe and remove dirt or mud residue.
Then, air dry away from a heat source.
Finish with a nourishing cream to keep good leather flexibility and extend the lifespan of the shoe.
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 (the heel does not take off or it does so slightly) and the forefoot while going downhill (the toes do not touch the front of the shoe).
Avoid all pressure points when trying them on.
Don't hesitate to walk around the store.
Gradually start using you shoes during your first few hiking trips to break them in.
All our shoes undergo use and comfort tests carried out by users who represent the target market in conditions identical to those found in typical use. Our Field Test Missions team the product manager up with people who aren't affiliated with QUECHUA, to test, improve, and validate our products.
