Can I be sure that my boots are warm enough for my winter hikes?
We chose a warm lining that has insulation to give you effective protection from the cold.
Based on the field and lab tests carried out with a panel of users to measure perceived cold, we gauge the thermal insulation of our shoes. It is therefore possible to accurately know down to which temperature your shoes are protecting you. The comfort temperature ratings are given for the shoes: -8°C for this model.
How do my boots protect me from outdoor conditions?
Your boots were designed with a membrane to make them waterproof and breathable. A membrane is a very fine component (from 5 to 25 micrometres) on the inside of a fabric that prevents water ingress but lets moisture out.
How can I be sure my boots are 100% waterproof?
We have checked that your boots are waterproof with laboratory tests that simulate walking with feet half immersed in water and with wear and aging tests in the field. During the waterproofing test, we test 3 levels of impermeability: 2000 flexes (approx. 4 km walk), 4000 flexes (approx. 8 km walk), and 8000 flexes (approx. 16 km walk). Your boots were tested at 4000 flexes, which is equivalent to 8 km of walking.
What is the difference between grip and traction?
The traction of the boots depends on the number and shape of the lugs (4 mm on this boot). Traction depends on the materials and ridges used on the soles, like your car's tires. Traction optimizes propulsion, prevents the shoe from slipping backwards when going uphill, and stabilizes the shoe.
Traction prevents sliding and slipping on smooth terrain and difficult conditions (rain, snow, ice), increasing the grip of the sole.
Will my boots withstand regular use over the long-term?
Our engineers conduct laboratory tests to fully guarantee your satisfaction in use. We validate the following elements among other things: strength of the eyelets and straps, glued seams, toxicology, UV resistance, abrasion resistance of the sole and upper components, and accelerated aging.
How should you choose footwear for hiking on the snow?
To gear up in the winter, we recommend you follow the principles below:
Warmth: increase heat with warm socks (ideally with a suitable % of wool)
Breathability: Choose your socks according to the intensity of the hike and wear breathable models to limit dampness.
Height of the boots: adapt the height of the socks to the height of the upper and opt for high models if you need more protection.
How to preserve the technical qualities of the boots
The water repellency of a fabric is its ability to let the water slide off its surface, without absorbing it. In this way, the fabric does not soak up water and therefore remains lightweight, breathable, and warm. Water repellency is obtained by a treatment applied on the outer surface of the fabric. This treatment needs to be renewed during the lifetime of the garment. Products (sprays and liquids) are available in our stores.
