Grippy soles on natural footpaths : The soles design is the result of extensive research carried out in our labs. We favoured a specific rubber formula which optimises grip and resistance. As the requirements are not the same, we systematically look for the best compromise for walking on loose off-road terrain (like a forest path) as well as hard, stony trails (like a coastal path).
Designed for use on country trails : Our walking shoes are designed for use on off-road trails. Indeed, we choose the components of the sole and upper of our boots and test them to ensure that they are ideally suited to walking on loose trails (e.g. unpaved forest paths) or rocky trails (e.g. rocky coastal paths). Road use (tarmac) may lead to premature wear on your boots and cause discomfort. They are not suitable for mountain walking.
Laboratory tested : Laboratory tests were conducted to test the following elements: attachment of eyelets and webbing, assembly, toxicology, UV resistance, sole and upper component abrasion, accelerated ageing. These tests allow us to improve the quality of our products and prevent premature wear of our hiking shoes.
How to choose the size of my walking boots? : 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 heel seating
- the front of the foot on a downward slope
Avoid any pressure points when fitting. Feel free to walk around the store. Gradually start using you shoes during your first few hiking trips to break them in.
The shoe/sock combination plays an important role : There are multiple factors which may cause blisters when you are walking: rubbing, a crease in the sock, moisture, a boot size that is too small or too big, etc. It is therefore important to choose the right size and to have socks made of the right material for your walking boots.
How to choose the size of my walking socks? : You must choose the right sock size for your foot so that there are no additional creases in the sock: either because the sock is too big and there is too much fabric around your foot, or because the sock too small and is pulled down into the shoe.
How to choose the fabric of my walking socks : Moisture must be effectively managed when walking: We sweat, its bound to happen. If your shoe is breathable, it will wick away moisture from your perspiration. It is therefore necessary to choose a light and breathable sock as well. If your boots are relatively waterproof, you will not make the same choice to protect you from the moisture of the rain: choose a sock which will absorb your sweat, and direct it as far as possible away from your foot.
Which pair of socks goes well with the NH100 mid boots? : These boots are slightly breathable, but not enough to wick away all moisture created by your sweat. Therefore, you should opt for the NH500 Mid socks. These contain cotton, which absorbs moisture, and have a loop construction, which keeps moisture away from your foot. They are high enough to protect your ankle from the boot. This is an excellent combination for minimising the likelihood of blisters.
Warranty : Our hiking boots are guaranteed for 2 years.
