Toe scratching

Inner furnish under toe cap is bad causing serious scratching to the toes when descend. This is even with a shoe size that's right (not undersize) and wearing a good quality hiking socks. Too bad that you can only find this out after a real test, and then you are not able to return the product as the return policy only accept unused products. Decathlon should improve the return policy.

Good value

I’ve spent over $200 for hiking boots and still had wet feet. These keep my feet dry. Two thumbs up.

Hi Eddie,

We are so glad to hear you're loving the boots. Thank you for your review. We hope you have a great day! 💙

Warm, light, and comfortable

These boots have proven to be warm, light, and very comfortable to wear. No problems in the current cold stretch of -15 C weather. I've had them on for full workdays, no problems with cold, overheating, or sweat. We'll see what the durability is like in time, but so far, they are enjoyable to wear!

I was out in the aftermath of our first snow storm a few days ago 30cm +. shoveling most of the morning, feet were toasty and dry. best ever.

Really confortable boots

Really confortables and affordable price. I am really happy how great they look. Great to do hiking and racketing.

Perfect after one alteration

The alteration I made was replacing the insoles. I’m 6’2” and weigh 13 1/2 stones so hardly a Sumo wrestler but after less than 100 miles the insoles had lost all their cushioning at the heel. I’ve had Plantar Fasciitis before and as soon as my heel started hurting I stopped wearing the boots until I’d replaced the insoles. I got a pair of Scholl gel ones for £11 from Amazon and they’ve transformed the boots. They’re the most comfortable boots I’ve had and I’ve paid big money for top brands in the past only to end up disappointed. The soft cuff at the top of the ankle seals well and stops debris getting in as well as making walking in them very comfortable. They’ve been used for a few hundred miles now through mud, snow, ice, slush and hard rocks and been fantastic. No signs of wear and very robust. Easy to clean too. I’ve stood in streams and no water has got in. Other more expensive boots have failed within a lot less time than I’ve had these. The soles are very grippy too in snow and mud. The only thing that’s let them down were the insoles. After replacing them they’re without doubt the best I’ve had. Not fair to give them 4 stars when a cheap improvement made them perfect.

Great Boots, Great Price

Pleasantly surprised, lightweight but very comfortable, great value.

Great value for money

It is always hard to find good shoes for my husband, which don't cost a fortune. He is EU size 48 or UK 12-13 Couldn't be happier with these ones. Great fit for a slim foot. Very warm. He wears them for Monroe bagging in Winter in Scotland.

Buying another pair as spare

Continued .......I bought these shoes for Iceland aurora borealis hunting. It was kind of first sight love as team is my favourite colour. After trying locally well for 2-3 days I had a great aurora borealis hunting on 20th December 2021 in a freezing cold night in wilds and these shoes "OH MY GOD" . I am a runner by nature. So not of a "walks" person. But I am loving walking in these that much that I have included walks twice in a week instead of daily run. They are as comfy from bottom that you can compare softness of the body weight push on that front sole like if you are wearing asics nimbus. Now coming to the waterproofing part, you can literally replace them with your wellies. In wellies you can not do 20 km walk but in these shoes it is easy peasy giving you as dry comfort as wellies. Tried and tested waterproofing with deliberate attempts to go in middle of several puddles but superb dryness. I am going to buy another pair as spare. Definitely in same colour too.

Measurement of the thermal insulation of our shoes.

Based on tests on how the cold is felt in the field and in the laboratory with a panel of users, we measure the thermal resistance of our shoes at rest (static) and in activity (dynamic). It is now possible to know precisely up to what temperature your shoes protect you. Temperature limits of comfort for your shoes are indicated. We take into account differences in sensation between men and women in our data.

Footwear waterproofing test.

Tested in the laboratory, the shoes give you an optimal impermeability. First immersed in water under air pressure, we check the absence of bubbles on the surface of the shoe. Then they are placed on a mechanical arm simulating walking, half immersed in water. We then check if the inside of the shoe remains perfectly dry. These laboratory tests are supplemented with use and aging tests on the field.

3 levels of waterproofing.

During the impermeability test, we tested 3 levels of impermeability 2000 flexions (about 2.5 miles of walking), 4000 flexions (about 5 miles of walking) and 8000 flexions (about 10 miles of walking).

Level of impermeability of the shoe.

This model of boot has been tested up to 8,000 flexions equivalent to 10 miles of walking.

Snowcontact technology.

SNOWCONTACT soles are designed from a specific component and a cleat design adapted to ensure the best possible grip and adherence. SNOWCONTACT soles are more effective than traditional soles on snow. In case of use on ice, only the addition of anti-slip grips will ensure optimal safety.

Field tests.

All our shoes undergo comfort and use tests carried out by users who are representative of our target market, in conditions identical to those found in typical use. Our Field Test Missions involve the product manager and people who are not affiliated with QUECHUA to test, improve and validate our products.

Laboratory tests.

Laboratory tests were conducted to test the following elements: torn eyelets and straps, bonding, toxicology, UV resistance, abrasion of the sole and the components of the upper, accelerated aging.
