Footwear waterproofing test.
The footwear equipped with the NOVADRY® technology is tested in the lab and in the field to guarantee the best possible 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.
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.
Shoe waterproofing level.
The 500 Warm waterproof boots are water resistant up to 8,000 flexes.
SNOWCONTACT soles are made using a special component. Designs are optimized to provide excellent all-terrain grip and maximal traction all winter long. What's more, the SNOWCONTACT soles are more efficient than traditional soles on snow.
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.
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. Based upon cold sensitivity tests in the field and in the laboratory using a panel of clients, we measure the thermal resistance of our shoes when resting and during activity. We take into consideration the differences between men and women.
Laboratory tests were conducted to test the following elements: attachment of eyelets and straps, fixtures, toxicology, UV resistance, sole and upper component abrasion, advanced aging.
All our shoes are tested for wearing comfort and comfort in use by users who are representative of the target market, under the same conditions as those that will be experienced in real-life 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.
