Good value for money

Good grip on dry or wet terrain. Very comfortable.

Shoe holds up well - even when climbing rocks!

Have had these shoes for a little over a year now. I walked very intensively with it in the Netherlands, Flanders and the Wurmtal, South Limburg, dune area, mainly on various types of natural surfaces. However, to my surprise, this - I estimate "B - mountain shoe" - also performed excellently in terms of grip on difficult mountain treks with a heavy backpack in the Picos de Europa mountains in Spain, the GR20 in Corsica and the English Camino in Spain. On these walking holidays, the shoes had to withstand the best of times, often off the paths on boulders, rock surfaces, clambering along ledges, etc., weeks of heavy rain. In dry conditions the grip was very good right down to the toes - less so on wet stones, but reasonably good. Gave a feeling of reliability, sufficient robustness and safety. This type of shoe is of course unsuitable for mountain tours with snow, ice, or cramptons (sole not sturdy enough). The shoe also has a few weak points: In wet conditions the shoe - although reasonably waterproof - is still saturated quite quickly. Unfortunately, the type of leather deforms over time. And the lace is difficult to remove from the narrow eyelets undamaged. The insole is also a weak, fidgety thing. Unfortunately, the grip profile is now too worn out for mountain hiking, but the shoe still functions well enough for hikes in the Netherlands or flat terrain, the normal paths. In summary, I was so satisfied and happy with these shoes that I will order these types of shoes again for my upcoming mountain walking holiday (but in a different color). And Decathlon don't dare take this excellent shoe out of the offer :-)

Very bad choice

I have been hiking for 15 years and have purchased from Decathlon and I have never been so disappointed. Very poor ankle support which hurts, very average grip and waterproofing to be reviewed. Prices have gone up and quality has gone down a lot. Used it for a month and already want to check out the competition.

They deserve it

For hiking boots at this price, they are very good, you only have to be careful with pulling the laces, as it is easy to break what slips through them (at the bottom)

MH500 hiking boots

I used it on a 25 km long tour, where the elevation gain was 1000 m. He kept his feet well, and stood the water. However, when you try to fit the shoe laces into the top 2-2 miniature shoelace holders before tying them, your good mood goes away. It is almost unusable on the ground or in mud. It might improve it if used with a much thinner lace.

What frequency and intensity of hiking?

We have classified our products in terms of performance and features for 3 levels of Mountain Walking:- occasional: around ten hikes per year of about 3 to 4 hours’ duration, less than 10km and less than 700m of elevation gain.- Regular: about 20 outings per year. 4 to 6 hours, 10 to 20 km, 700 to 1200m of elevation gain per outing.- Intensive: more than 20 times a year. More than 6 hours, more than 20 km, 1200 to 2000m of elevation gain per outing.

Outdoor contact sole

New high-performance sole with our new exclusive rubber blend developed by our experts. More grippy, more durable. The sole is designed for better grip using 3D simulations and then laboratory tested to assess the coefficient of grip on different surfaces and conditions. Field tests in the mountains allow us to do the final validation with a panel of testers. 30% rubber

Waterproofing test

In a laboratory, the boot is immersed in water to mid-height on a mechanical arm that flexes to simulates a number of steps. With this test we can determine a time and number of km that the boot can walk while staying dry. Then we confirm in the field or under the rain, that the shoe meets its promises.

Extended waterproofing

To keep your feet dry, we advise you to use a waterproof gaiter or mini-gaiter to protect the top of your boots and prevent water, pebbles and sand from getting in.We advise re-waterproofing your boots twice a year using a re-waterproofing agent (search for ‘waterproofing’ on our Decathlon website) which will help you restore the original water-repellent qualities and help prevent stains on the outside.

Which size should i select?

Some Decathlon stores have a test route.1. Try on both shoes, standing up, with the socks worn for hiking. 2. Tighten the laces, taking care to correctly balance the tightening.3. Check two points:- the heel does not come up before the boot when you walk uphill.- the foot does not slide and the toes do not press against the front when going downhill.4. Try on several sizes and models.Break them in gradually to adapt them to your foot.

How to prevent blisters

Blisters generally develop when the skin is weakened by friction. In order to prevent them from occurring, we recommend the following: - Choose a shoe in your size.- Wear suitable socks- Tie and tighten your shoes properly.- Make sure you tighten or loosen your laces accordingly while wearing your shoes, especially before starting a climb or a descent. - Wear your shoes on a short trip for the first use.

Which socks?

A waterproof shoe will be less breathable than a non-waterproof shoe. Mid-length socks like the MH500, MH520 and MH900 are therefore preferable for absorbing perspiration and reducing overheating.

Optimise the capabilities of your shoes by replacing your insoles

The original insole in your boots is designed to accommodate most feet. A change of insole can bring:1. Improved support: some soles are preformed or reinforced to better support the arch of the foot. 2. More comfort: the insoles can also provide heat and/or cushioning.3. Longer life: restore the support and comfort of your shoes by replacing the insole each season.

How should you look after your boots?

- Leave to air dry.- Remove dry mud with a stiff brush. - Clean marks using a brush and some warm water- Leave to dry- Spray with a re-waterproofing product to restore the water-resistance to the upper.

Product testing

Our hiking shoes are first tested in our Decathlon Sportslab laboratory, based in Lille, which also contributes to the innovation and development of our Quechua products. It brings together several themes, each with their own area and technological tools.
