We have reduced our environmental impact on this product
We have improved this product with an eco-design approach.
That's right, during the development process, we selected environmentally-friendly components:
- Inner lining of the upper: 100% recycled polyester
- 100% recycled polyester mesh
28.8% of the shoe's weight is eco-designed.
Resistant soles for walking trails
Our hiking sandals are designed for use on walking trails. Indeed, the components of the sole and upper of our boots are selected and tested to ensure that they are as well suited as possible to hiking on soft trails (e.g. dirt paths in forests) or stony trails (rocky coastal footpaths). Road use (tarmac) may lead to premature wear on your boots and cause discomfort. They are not suitable for mountain walking.
What is the origin of our leather?
We use a leather called nubuck. It has a soft, silky feel. The leather used in these shoes comes from cows. We do not kill any animals to obtain this leather: we only use leather waste from the agrofood industry.
WHY CHOOSE RECYCLED POLYESTER?
28.8% of the shoe's weight is recycled polyester.
By recycling plastic bottles or second-hand textiles to produce our polyester, we have reduced the consumption of oil-based resources while preserving the quality and performance of the material during your hikes.
Tips for storage and maintenance
Keep your sandals in a dry, dark and, if possible, ventilated place, away from sources of heat.
Restrictions on use
Not recommended for use in water, in the mountains or on tarmac.
TESTS AND WARRANTY
It’s in France, at the foot of Mont Blanc, that our design team conceives, designs and creates Quechua products. We test them in the field with other hikers, to check their comfort and durability. The Forest of Fontainebleau or in Brittany, for example. We go to as many different places as possible, in all weather conditions. This creates plenty of opportunities for discussions to get your feedback which is used to plan our future products!
These sandals were tested and approved by a dozen hikers in France while hiking in the Vaucluse in 2021.
In order to meet your requirements, Quechua products are tested in the wild in the conditions you encounter during your hikes.
Our teams, as well as a tester panel (made up of partners, ambassadors and customers), test products throughout their development until they go to market.
