Leather upper and stone guard at front of foot for protection and durability
Waterproof membrane tested on a 15 km walk in water up to the mid-upper
100% rubber CrossContact® sole improves grip and traction
High upper, 2 high hooks, and 1 secure blocker hook
Flexible sole to make walking more comfortable on beginner-friendly trails.
470 g per boot in US W size 8
The heel of the sole is made with a long-lasting cushioning material (PU)
Outsole with grip
The grip on our soles is called CrossContact®.
To be awarded this certification, boots must pass laboratory tests to assess their traction on different surfaces (Smooth, Rugged, Dry, Wet). To validate these tests, we assess the quality of our soles in the field and in the mountains over 500 km using a panel of representative testers
How waterproof are these boots?
This boot was validated in the waterproofing test at 30,000 repeatable flexes, i.e. 15 km or 6 hours of walking, in water up to the mid-upper, which is the highest level of waterproofing for your boots.
--> Our assessment indicates a level of 3/5 for 6 hours of waterproofing when hiking in the rain.
The details of out boots' waterproof assessment tests are below, in the characteristics section.
Making waterproofing last longer
The waterproofing of boots is often compromised by water getting in at the collar. To keep your feet dryer for longer, we recommend using waterproof gaiters or mini-gaiters that will keep out water, pebbles, mud, sand, etc. The boot’s waterproof treatment will eventually wear off. You will need to reapply a waterproofing spray several times a year. This restores the original water-repellent properties and prevents staining.
1/ Use a brush and/or sponge to clean the boot and remove any dirt or mud.
2/ Leave to air dry somewhere cool.
3/ Apply a waterproofing spray to maintain the upper's water repellency and to extend the life of the boots.

Which size should you choose?
which size should you choose?
For hiking boots, go one size up from your regular shoe size to ensure optimum comfort when going downhill and to prevent your toes from hitting the toe box. Tip: keep your toenails short and, before heading down, check that your lacing stops your foot from sliding forwards inside the shoe.
5 levels of waterproofing
During the waterproofing test, we test 5 levels of waterproofing:
2,000 flexes (approximately 4 km, 30 minutes of walking)
10,000 flexes (approximately 10 km, 3 hours of walking)
30,000 flexes (approximately 15 km, 6 hours of walking)
50,000 flexes (approximately 20 km, 8 hours of walking)
100,000 flexes (approximately > 20 km, 24 hours of walking)
Our shoes are laboratory tested using two successive tests
Test 1/ We test the efficiency of the membrane when placed under pressure in water. We ensure that there is no water on the surface, like when you test a "punctured inner tube."
Test 2/ We use mechanical arms to simulate walking. The assembled shoes are immersed in water half-way and undergo thousands of flexes to ensure that the inside of the shoe remains dry and is therefore waterproof.
Buying tips/how to try on boots
How to choose your boots:
1. Try on both boots while standing up and wearing your hiking socks.
2. Tighten the laces correctly.
3. Check the following two areas of comfort: the heel and the front of the foot when going downhill.
4. Walk around with the boots on.
5. Try on several sizes and models.
6. Wear your boots for increasingly longer periods of time to wear them in.
These boots were co-designed with passionate trekkers, each bringing their own special skills. For example, one of our co-designers is a chiropodist who helps us meet the physiological needs of people's feet and ensure they are comfortable and safe during treks.
Trek 100 leather boots are manufactured in a factory in Romania that specializes in making hiking boots.
The factory only uses water-based glues with no chemical solvents.
Most materials are of European origin.
