Sole coefficient of 0.5 for safety on all terrains
243 g per shoe in size 36
Thanks to an EVA interlayer in the heel.
The design of the sole has been the subject of in-depth research at our laboratories, combined with a specific rubber formulation to offer the best compromise between grip and traction. As no two requirements are ever the same, we automatically look for the best compromise for walking on both wet and dry terrain.
Get your child to try on both shoes, standing up, with the socks worn for hiking. Try on several models or sizes if necessary. Check the following two areas of comfort: the heel seating and the front of the foot on a downward slope. Avoid any pressure points when fitting. It is a good idea to get your child to walk around the store. He or she should wear in the shoes gradually over a few hikes.
Which size should you choose?
For hiking, do not hesitate to choose one size above your usual size to ensure optimal comfort when going downhill and prevent your toes from hitting the front of the shoe. Advice: keep your nails short and, before making your descent, check that your lacing prevents your foot from sliding towards the front of the boot.
All of our shoes are tested for initial comfort and comfort during use, by users who represent the target market, and under the same conditions as you would encounter in use. Our Mission Tests bring together the product manager with people who are not affiliated with Quechua to test, develop and approve the products.
Further laboratory tests are also conducted to validate the following: secure attachment of eyelets and straps, gluing, toxicology, resistance to UV rays, abrasion of the sole and upper components, accelerated ageing.
