The grip of our soles is certified.
To get this certification, the shoes must pass laboratory tests to assess the grip coefficient on different surfaces (smooth, rugged, dry, wet).
To approve these tests, we then have the quality of our soles evaluated in the field, in the mountains, by a panel of child testers.
Designed for use on country trails
Our walking sandals are designed for use on country trails. We choose and test the components of our soles to best adapt to the practice of hiking on soft footpaths (for example, woodland earthy footpaths) or mineral footpaths (for example, rocky coastal footpaths). Road use (tarmac) may lead to the premature wear of your soles.
Do not use them on mountain trails with lots of elevation gains.
OUR ENVIRONMENTAL APPROACH
Because we are aware that we must act to preserve our playground, Quechua is committed to limiting the environmental impact of its products.
Today, this product is not eco-designed, but we work every day to make it more responsible: eco-design, repairability and sustainability are at the heart of our developments.
Tips for storage and maintenance
Machine wash - 30° max - permanent press
Let your sandals dry properly before storing in a dry place away from direct sunlight.
TESTS AND WARRANTY
Our design team is based at the foot of the Mont-Blanc, in Haute-Savoie (France). All year round, we create and develop products that are beautiful, simple and technologically advanced. These are then ruthlessly tested in the field because we believe that the only way to continually improve is to test the products under the real-life conditions that you will experience.
In order to meet your requirements, Quechua products are tested in the mountains, under the conditions you may encounter during your hikes.
Sarah, our Field Test Engineer, as well as a panel of child testers, test the products throughout their development until they’re offered for sale.
