Comparable with big name specialist brands

Without being able to try these on in store, ordering online was a leap of faith - and I must say, I’m impressed! Out of the box, they felt good on the foot, and after testing over two walks (one road, one trail) they’re suiting my purposes well. Fit is good (for my foot) with plenty of room in the toe, and a heel cup that holds well. The sock-fit upper is very comfortable - I can’t feel any pressure from the lacing. There’s plenty of protection at the toe. The outsole provides enough grip for the light trails/stony tracks I’ll be using them on. They really feel like they enhance the heel-toe roll associated with Nordic Walking, and they’re remarkably stable (no lateral movement) on all surfaces on which I’ve tried them. The built-in debris gaiter works very well indeed, and the lace garage is a well-designed and useful feature. Weighing in at 573g (pair, size 7) they are heavier than other trail shoes I’ve used, but that really isn’t noticeable. All in all, they’re equally as good (if not better) than shoes from the likes of Salomon. I was a little concerned about the stretchy laces, but after two walks, they’ve stayed tied well. If I had to be picky, I’d like a little more cushioning under the heel, and perhaps a tad more arch support: but an after-market insole (Superfeet or similar) should resolve this issue (if, indeed, it turns out to be such). I’ve had shoes that cost four times more than these, and can say these are just as good! All reviews are, of course; subjective, and this is written after one day’s use (approx 12 miles). They suit me and my activity very well indeed - I hope they suit you. I’ll give my long-term view after several months use (c 250-300 miles or so.

Way too small

I take a size 11 normally and ordered same. Fit is very narrow and short and the hg e sole of the shoe inflexible

Worst ever experience

Biggest mistake that I chose this brand.. unbalanced.. Feeling cramps in my feet after a short distance.. So much disappointed after purchase.. Now local store advising me to purchase insoles... Friends never go for this..

Hello Sir,

Thanks for taking the time to write to us,

We are really sorry that our Nordic walking shoes didn't meet up to your expectations. About this shoe - Occasional Nordic Walking usage. Mainly designed for Nordic Walking purpose - That is why it has good grip and Stability. It has a hard bottom, because these shoes are designed to walk on the off roads and mud surfaces. Those who wish to walk on the off-road or who need better grip & durability, Ill suggest these shoes.

Personally Ill not recommend this product for you, because the usage is totally different from a normal Walking.To know more about Nordic walking -

You can visit our nearest Decathlon store and get an exchange done or refund.

Thanks and your feedback is really valuable for us

Nw 500: interview with a pioneer“my dream? to find an owner who loves me as much as i love them."

My nickname is NW 500 - cute, isn't it?I arrived in the stores in July 2017 on a little shelf of the department, reserved just for me!I may not have won a beauty contest yet, but I have everything a Nordic walker needs: top flexibility, grip for all surfaces and comfortable cushioning.The little extras? built-in gaiters to keep little stones out and a place for storing your laces and stop them dragging on the ground, so you don't lose time.

What is nordic walking?

Nordic walking is performed with special walking poles on all gently sloping surfaces to tone the whole body.

What are the benefits of nordic walking?

Nordic walking is good for overall fitness and can be enjoyed by everyone. It helps tone the body, improves breathing, is effective when it comes to weight loss and strengthens bones. As well as all the physical benefits, practicing this outdoor sport also contributes to a feeling of well-being. For more information, please visit

Why is it important to choose a special shoe for nordic walking?

In Nordic walking, you place the heel on the ground first, then roll out the foot until the toes hit the ground in order to move forward. These shoes provide optimal flexibility and enhanced cushioning under the heel and metatarsals, the areas that suffer the most when walking.

*what is flex-h technology?

The exclusive Flex-H concept follows the natural action of the foot thanks to 3 flex grooves in a H pattern. Studies undertaken in Decathlon SportsLab have identified the metacarpophalangeal joints are both the flexion zone and the main support zone of the foot in power walking. Thus, our design teams placed flex grooves on both sides of this joint in order to help walking while remaining comfortable.

What pair of shoes should i choose in case of rainy weather?

Mesh textiles are very ventilated and are not fit for walking in rainy weather. We recommend the NW 580 shoes, whose fabric and treatment guarantee the waterproofing you need.

To ensure your feet are comfortable:

- Choose the right shoe size. When walking, you do not necessarily need to take 1 size up.- Choose a shoe whose shape is suitable for your foot- Adjust/tighten the laces to ensure your foot is supported properly and don't hesitate to re-lace your shoes during your walk- Avoid new socks when wearing your new shoes for the 1st time- Use socks that are higher than the built-in sock liner
