Technical Informations

Sole grip
The design of the sole has been the subject of long research at our laboratories, combined with a specific rubber formulation to offer the best compromise between grip and traction. As requirements are not the same, we automatically look for the best compromise to develop on both soft and dry terrain.
Waterproofing test
These lab and field tested boots equipped with the NOVADRY® technology provide optimal waterproofing and breathability. To start, the footwear is immersed in water with pressurised air inside to check that no bubbles form on the surface of the boot. Next, the boots are fitted to a mechanical arm that simulates walking and half-immersed in water so we can test that the inside remains perfectly dry.
3 levels of waterproofing
During the waterproofing test, we test 3 levels of impermeability, ie 2000 flexes (about 2 hours of walking), 4000 flexes (about 4 hours of walking) and 8000 flexes (about 8 hours of walking). Naturally, after this test or in use, the boot regains its original waterproofing once dry.Forclaz 500 high hiking boots for children are waterproof for 4,000 flexes.
Prolonging waterproofness
A boot's waterproofing is often undermined by water getting in from the top of the shoe. To keep your feet dry for longer, we recommend wearing waterproof gaiters or mini-gaiters to protect the top part of the boots and prevent water, pebbles, sand, etc. from getting inside. To restore the original water repellent properties and prevent staining the outer surface, spray with a waterproof spray several times per year.
Buying tips
Allow children to try on both shoes, standing up, with the socks worn for hiking. Try on several models or sizes if necessary. Check two comfort points: the base of the heel and the front part of the foot going down. There should be no pressure points when you try them on. Don't hesitate to allow then to walk around the store. Gradually start using you shoes during your first few hiking trips to break them in.
What boot size should I choose?
For hiking, try taking one shoe size up from your usual to ensure optimum comfort when going downhill and to prevent your toes from hitting the toe box. Tip: Before any descent, make sure your nails are cut and check that your laces are tightened to prevent your foot from sliding forward in the shoe.
Laboratory testing
Other laboratory tests are also conducted to validate the following elements: torn eyelets and straps, bonding, toxicology, UV resistance, abrasion of the sole and the components of the upper, accelerated ageing.

Shoes for my son
Excellent product at good price
Used for 2 to 8 weeks
Purchased for my daughter. Daughter loves them, she says they are light and comfortable. She has no restriction in movement and can run as fast as when she wears trainers. They kept her feet dry in the rain and warm in the cold - my daughter and I are happy customers.
Excellent hiking boot
Used for More than 1 year
Bought a pair for each of my twins over a year ago when they were 6 years old.
These sturdy walking boots have been used for over a year, climbed 4 Munro's, Croagh Patrick and various jaunts in the pentlands. Still plenty life as still plenty grip tread and waterproofing and so now off to buy in bigger size now kids have outgrown them. These boots are true to size but recommend a size bigger to allow for socks and terrain if you will be using for hill walking. Great quality, durability and price. Cannot recommend more highly than saying I'm off to buy again.
