Quechua ‘Rockguard’ Hiking Shoe by Christophe Juge

A great project from designer, Christophe Juge detailing each stage of his Quechua ‘Rockguard’ Hiking Shoe’s –

‘The Rockguard is a technical hinking shoe, and on that project I was inspired by the approach style.
It has approach shoes features, such as the rubber bumper, the climbing zone, and down to the toes laces.
For this technical hiking shoes, I implemented features like a great grip through an aggressive studs design, a superior support (360° system + X-Stab), cushioning, a comfortable collar…
I designed a leather version and a waterproof version for FW 13/14, and proposed 2 more versions (mid + ventilated) to develop the family.’- Christophe
