Technical Informations

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.
Measurement of the boots' thermal insulation.
It used to be impossible to tell the precise temperature up to which your shoes would protect you. Now it can be done: the temperature limits for use are shown on your Quechua shoes. Using cold sensing tests while hiking and in the lab with a panel of customers, we measured the thermal resistance of our boots while active and at rest. We factor in the difference in perception between men and women.
Footwear waterproofing test.
The boots, which are lab and field tested, provide optimum waterproofing and breathability. To start, they are immersed in water with pressurised air inside to check that no bubbles form on the surface of the boot. 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.
Shoe waterproofing level.
The Arpenaz 500 Warm boots for Women are waterproof for up to 4,000 flexes.
Field tests.
All our boots are tested in use and for comfort by users who are representative of the target market under conditions that replicate those you will experience in use. Our Field Test Missions team up the product manager with people unconnected with QUECHUA, to test, improve, and validate our products.
Measuring our boots' thermal insulation.
Previously, there was no accurate way of measuring the minimum temperature at which your boots protect you. Now it can be done: the temperature limits for use are shown on your Quechua shoes. Using subjective sensory chill tests conducted in the field and in the lab with a panel of customers, we measure the thermal resistance of our boots when the user is moving and stationary. We factor in the difference in perception between men and women.
Laboratory testing
Laboratory tests were conducted to test the following elements: ripping off eyelets and straps, bonding, toxicology, resistance to UV rays, friction on the sole and upper components, accelerated ageing.

Very warm
Used for 2 to 8 weeks
Very warm and very comfortable. If I could choose one improvement, I would have liked the soles to be slightly thicker, and that's why I've only given them four stars. However they're great shoes and kept my feet very toasty.
Used for 1 week or less
I bought this snowboots few days ago and I like it as keeps my feet warm in this cold weather.And also very comfortable but.....It is bloody DANGEROUS to walk into the wet surface as I almost SKID more than several times today....So, I am not HAPPY about it...
Use them all the time!
Used for 2 to 8 weeks
Great boots. My sister bought a pair before I did and I tried hers on, had to go buy some after that. I wear them to work in the morning as they keep my feet nice and warm and are super comfy!
Excellent Boots
Used for More than 1 year
I got a pair of these for a Christmas present 2017. Practically worn them every day over autumn and winter period as I'm a dog walker and I hate the cold. They are the best boots I have found by far. Warm, snuggly, very waterproof, lightweight and look great. I've had many comments about where they are from. In fact I'm getting another pair this Christmas as I've worn mine out so much.. well worth the price too which is very reasonable.
Love these!
Used for More than 1 year
I bought a pair of these in Feb 2017 for Iceland and they were perfect.
I love them so much I have just bought another pair in the alternative colour.

Great fit
Used for 7 to 12 months
Warm, comfy and great for my skiing trip to France and snow in the uk earlier in the year.
Used for 2 to 8 weeks
Very soft & warm inside & grip soft ground. I have an older all cream pair & wear them in the snow & they grip well & are waterproof
Brilliant- just watch tiled/ wooden floors!
Used for More than 1 year
I wore these over the winter, whilst in the woods weekly. I did however nearly break my arm twice when I slipped over in them on the tiled floor in our kitchen. They really need to sort out the grips on the bottom, before someone has a really nasty accident, especially if they are wet on the bottom. I have tiled and wooden floors all the way through my house so I either take them off or walk very slowly whilst holding on to things as I go through my kitchen.
Not received
If I had actually received the boots this would of been ok
