    Product feature
    1. Footwear waterproofing test.
      Tested both in the lab and real-world usage, NOVADRY®-equipped footwear guarantees optimum waterproofing and breathability. First, the shoe is immersed in water while internal air pressure is applied to check that no bubbles form on the surface of the footwear. Next, shoes are fitted to a mechanical arm that simulates walking and half immersed in water so we can test that the inside remains perfectly dry.
    2. 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.
    3. Shoe waterproofing level.
      The TIKA Lady is waterproof up to 4000 bends.
    4. Measurement of the boots' thermal insulation.
      It used to be impossible to tell the exact temperature down 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 shoes while active and at rest. We take into account the differences in sensing cold between men and women.
    5. 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.
    6. 3 levels of waterproofing.
      During the waterproofing test, we test 3 levels of waterproofing: 2,000 flexes (walking approx. 4 km), 4,000 flexes (walking approx. 8 km) and 8,000 flexes (walking approx.16 km). Of course, after this test or in use, the shoe regains its original waterproofing once dry.
    7. Shoe waterproofing level.
      The Arpenaz 500 Warm boots for Women are waterproof for up to 4,000 flexes.
    8. 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 who aren't affiliated with QUECHUA, to test, improve, and validate our products.
    9. 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 boots. 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 take into account the differences in sensing cold between men and women.
    10. Lab tests.
      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.
    Product testing
    1. Composition
      Polyester with waterproof coating and synthetic upper, synthetic padded faux fur lining and waterproof/breathable membrane, rubber sole.
    2. Storage advice

      I bought this and used on my trip to Lapland, particularly in Abisko, Sweden. Worked very well even on knee deep snow and blizzard when I was walking around Bjorkliden. Absolutely happy to buy this so cheap and working perfectly.

      I haven't had a chance to test these in the snow so only given 4 instead of 5 stars. They have been great at keeping my feet snug and warm in the recent low temperatures when it's freezing or below when leaving for work early in the morning. They are lightweight and really comfortable to wear. I always get complimented when wearing them and people are surprised when I tell them I only paid £25 for them.
      Warm, lightweight, look good
      Bag out slightly at the ankle
    • So warm

      I personally still like to look good even in the cold/snow and these caught my eye for that exact reason, so they get top marks for that. They're also really warm and comfortable too and great value for money!!
      Only negative is, they could do with better grip on the ice.
      Look Great!!
      Better Grip!!
