Excellent Product

Took these to Montana and they were superb. With a good pair of thick socks I can edure -10 weather and not feel the cold through the shoes. Very happy with these shoes.

Boots outperformed many other expensive “name” brands especially in keeping feed dry on a recent walk in Tasmania

Good boots, wish there was an actual size 10.

I’ve had these boots for a couple of months now and have covered about 100 miles across Dartmoor in. If they were a size 10, they’d be perfect. As the size 10.5 is a bit too big, I feel like I’m over tightening them to get a snug fit. This was a problem on the first walk in them as the waterproof, tongue flap thingies pressed in to my ankle bones whilst descending steep slopes. My ankle bones must have tenderised said tongue flap thingies as this didn’t happen again. Overall though, with a slightly thicker sock on, these boots are now extremely comfortable and have walked across 20 miles of north moorland in them and my feet stayed comfortable and dry. Another tip, the leather holds a LOT of water when new and can take ages to dry. G-wax sorted this problem though and I feeder the colour of the leather after a waxing.

use a high quality leather grease or wax

I've owned 2 pairs of these now and the first pair were excellent boots, reasonably light, flexible and comfortable for walking all day. I used the spray on wax, as advised by Decathlon staff at purchase, this did nothing to replenish the leather and may have had a negative effect on the longevity, after a year or so the leather has perished and the boots are unusable. After seeking the correct advice on how to maintain these boots i purchased a second pair, where the webbing meets the tongue there's a lump of stitching which digs into my ankle bone, as these are the only pair of boots i now own i had to suffer with this for 2 long walks to and from work, i'll be returning the second pair and inspecting their replacement thoroughly before being happy.

Forclaz Leather Trekking Boots

Wore these around the house/work for a couple of days, as a precaution to break them in. Have just spent a full day hiking of path across Oxenhope Moor (peat bogs), and the have been like warm, waterproof slippers… highly recommended!

Good boots so far

I was looking around at other similar leather walking boots, but for the money, so far these have been really good. I've used them for the morning dog walk of approx 2hrs every day for the last few months, which have been particularly 'weathery', and never had wet feet. They're comfortable and sizing is good. The grip in the woodland much and loam is superb. On the wet days, they certainly kept me upright on some slippery and muddy paths. Was interesting that there was no box or care instructions in the package that you would get with other brands, but I guess that's just less waste to deal with. I think there is a large label on the inner of the tongue that may have some info although not managed to read it so far. Looking forward to some longer hikes with them on the local coast paths and Dartmoor.

Very versatile boot

Comfortable, waterproof boots great for hiking in wet wheather and muddy paths.

I would recommend

Given the mixed reviews I wasn't sure about the boots. I've worn them every day for 4 weeks on a range of walks from 1 mile round the park to a 6 mile walk in the country. My views are: Comfort: out of the box comfortable & no issues Waterproof: stayed dry in wet grass, mud & puddles Grip: as good as previous boots of various brands Overall: does what I needed at a relatively low price.

1 Year Review - Still Good!!

A very good boot. I've worn this boot for a year now. Through all terrain, it seems to hold up. It has been very good in the wet and even held up against deep puddles - not had a wet foot yet. The boot was a bit stiff but mine seemed to bed in nicely - although after a 7 hour trek, I am ready to take them off! I'm sure that would be the case for any boot mind! I've not really kept them clean or treated them with anything and they are still doing well.

Tight fitting and toe too hard

Have used these for a number of hiking weekends in a row now and have got blisters each time. The toe cap on the end digs in and even with loose lacing the top of the boot is also uncomfortable. Thought that with time the boots would wear in but this has not been the case. Disappointed as have bought some excellent things from decathlon in the past.

Love them

I am a dog walker so wear these boots all day everyday, amazingly comfortable & waterproof. Because of the distances i do, with each pair i buy a decent pair of inner's but that just something i have always done. I'm on my 3rd set now & they are just starting to wear out & let in a bit of water BUT Strava tells me i have done over 700 km's in them so really not complaining. Great value for money, when these ones let go i will certainly just by another pair.

Not waterproof

Great from comfort point of view but definitely not waterproof. They take water through the leather into the boot and leave you with wet feet. Not great when that's a selling point

Bad products

Totally unhappy with the current lot of trekking boots. Decathlon staff themselves don't recommend the product. If the sales staff don't have confidence in the product then how will customers. Overall shoes not not good. Insole issues. After some time the soles of the feet started painting. Wore only twice. Glad I did not take them for an extended trek.

Dissatisfaction with product

Bought this shoes in in November 2021 and it currently is in 2 year warranty period window. Stiches came out in some areas of the shoes. ISSUE1:Took it to decathlon (rcity mall Mumbai) they refused to fix it. ISSUE 2: Even thought i was ready to pay for a service charge to get the stitching fixed they denied saying the shoe cannot be repaired on their end in India and to get it repaired locally. Issue 3 : they even said to wear the shoes occasionally :D and that since you have used the shoes regularly so its out of warranty. So what is the definition of occasional use?? May be they should put terms and conditions that wear this shoes X number of time to meet warranty.

Hi Apurba

Thank you for highlighting the concern and we apologise to you for the concern that you have faced with the product and services.

Repairability- Current scenarios are not favourable to the process of service and repairs for shoes since they are made with the defined processes using some material curing (Ex; Poly urethane, Ethylene vinyl acetate)using machinery under supervised processes.

Mass production help in procuring stock at a lower price to deliver the same for our users at an affordable price. Singular repairs are not provided in-store since lack of infrastructure and legal constraints prevent putting machinery(factor grade) in retail in-store.

Sending back to the production unit (Italy) will include the customs charge and delivery charges and repair charges too.

Since the entire process is not economically friendly we are constrained with repair services in India.

Trek shoes are Considered sports gear and hence devised to be used according to the intensity and frequency.

Kindly send me the image of the shoes to look into the above-mentioned concern to understand the issue better.

Additional Product Information


Outer sole of: 60.0% Synthetic Rubber, 40.0% Polyurethane ; Upper of: 60.0% Leather - Bovine - Split, 40.0% Polyester ; Lining and sock of: 100.0% Polyester

European made100% of our forclaz boots are manufactured in europe

These trekking boots are manufactured in the European Union, in Romania, in a factory specialising in the production of trekking boots (GRISPORT)This factory uses exclusively water-based adhesives, without chemical solvents.Most materials are of European origin.Manufacturer: the links on this page into your preferred search engine.

Benefit of the self-locking hook

With this material, you can separate the upper and lower lacingThis allows you to adjust the lacing to the shape of your foot and give your ankle as much freedom as you like. To separate the upper lacing from the lower part, make a simple knot level with your instep or use your shoes’ self-locking hook. All of our trekking shoes have this feature.

Routes suited to this boot

This boot is designed for trekking on generally low altitude routes and/or on trails. It can occasionally be used on more technical sections: passages over rocks, firm snow, slopes.

Contact® technology for our soles

The grip and traction of our soles is certified Contact®To be awarded certification, the boots must pass laboratory tests to assess the grip rate on different surfaces (smooth, rugged, dry, wet). To validate these tests, we assess the quality of our soles in the field, in the mountains, by a panel of representative testers over more than 500 km.The notching also gives you grip adapted to muddy or wet terrain.

Advantages and drawbacks of this leather model

Advantages: - supple leather- durable and waterproof, the leather prevents water running across the boot by repelling and absorbing it- breathable leather (natural pores of leather skin), but less so than a synthetic boot in strong heat. To reduce this problem, nubuck leather is used for greater breathability, but it is also more sensitive to the rainDrawbacks: - it needs to be nourished, hydrated and treated to remain waterproof.

This boot’s waterproof level

This boot has been tested and validated for 10,000 flexes repeatable, equivalent to a 15 km walk, in water reaching the mid-upper. This now guarantees a good level of boot waterproofing.--> Our assessment indicates a LEVEL OF 3/5 giving 6 hours of waterproofing when hiking in the rain. The details of tests carried out to assess the waterproofing of our boots is below.

Make this boot’s waterproofing last longer

A waterproof grease is recommended to nourish leather to stop it drying out (cracking), to make it waterproof and protect against stains1/ Trekking boot maintenance brush: 2/ Grease for re-waterproofing leather boots:

Increase your boot’s waterproofing with a gaiter

The waterproofing of boots is often compromised because water gets in at the collar of the boot.--> To keep your feet dry for longer, it is advisable to use a waterproof gaiter or mini-gaiter that will prevent water as well as pebbles and sand from getting inside through the top of the boot.Model perfectly suited to this trekking gaiter MT500 black

Product testing

As well as the various laboratory tests, these boots were tested in the field by passionate trekkers during a 500 km DURABILITY MISSION TEST, on the GR5 and trekking trails of the Canaries. Check out the film of this mission test by clicking this link:
