MT 500 FORCLAZ trekking sandals

Very practical sandals especially for short trips. Definitely not to be worn all day for long walks but in context a good product.

Very good sandals for walking in summer

I bought these sandals 3 months ago to introduce myself to minimalism and because I loved their simple design (and price!). I felt a slight warming up and I was bothered by the stones the first day, then my feet got used to it, I have been wearing them almost every day since and I love them: they are super comfortable and light, easy to clean and dry quickly. However, I do not recommend wearing them on hikes with a change in altitude (I tried), they do not support the foot enough for that, otherwise for fairly flat walks, even several hours, it's perfect!

I have been using it from six month as my daily footwear. It works well for casual use where you expect a sandal to work well. Sole works well as a barefoot footwear, you can feel the ground better. The design can be bettered by adding an extra strap so that the middle part of the sole can also be fasten to the middle foot. It sometimes doesn't curve well with foot as you will expect a barefoot footwear to do. But it stands out as a good option at the price as a barefoot wear.

Good footwear

It is a good intermediate shoe between the classic flip-flops and barefoot. For me a highly recommended purchase. You forget you have them on and it is for almost any type of terrain. Otherwise I would not use it on the beach or in saline water. It can be a little uncomfortable because it has a super thin insole where you can notice all the ground you are stepping on. People who cannot have an almost flat shoe should refrain, which I recommend in my opinion.

Very rigid

I'm a little disappointed. The sole is more rigid than other minimalist shoes I have, the straps that hold the foot are not elastic and since there are only two, the foot is somewhat loose (or the straps tighten). I love the minimalist style and the price is good but they are not very comfortable, the sole of my foot hurts if I wear them for many hours (it doesn't happen to me with other barefoot shoes).

Minimalist sandals

I love that Decathlon has minimalist sandals that are respectful of the foot, they are very comfortable and resistant, I have been wearing them all summer and I have also used them for rivers. The only thing is that they fit me a little big because I wear a 35 and the size is from 36 onwards but even so you don't feel the difference much and I walk very comfortable with them, like going barefoot. I hope decathlon releases more sandals like you are in smaller sizes and for children too. I recommend it 100%

Great product Very light feel…

Great product Very light feeling of being barefoot

It's like being barefoot, they are also non-slip, simple, very minimalist and comfortable. I loved them!!

For both uses...

For the 2 uses I had of it: - at the campsite: very practical, light. Small complaint: the straps dry slowly: after a shower in the evening, they were wet in the morning. - on a walk (they are not sold for): very practical, sometimes a few pebbles have slipped underfoot, dry earth like sand too. On the other hand, after 2-3 hours of walking my arch heated up a little. In my opinion, the sole is not made for it. As they are sold for bivouac, it is a success. For another use, in my experience, you will have to be vigilant.

Barefoot sandals

Great, comfortable, cheap. I've been wearing them everyday every summer for five years now.

bare-foot minimalist

If you've conducted thorough research and are eager to delve into the world of zero-drop, barefoot minimalist footwear, this pair offers exceptional value without the hefty price tag. Its quality shines through with a thin, durable, flat, flexible rubber sole that provides ample grip for various activities and is a breeze to clean and dry. The sandal's compact footprint and flexibility make it convenient to strap to your bag, pack lightly, or include in a suitcase – a significant advantage. Tested in diverse terrains, including beach outings, wet Malaysian jungle trails, camping, and hikes across grasslands and gravel, these sandals performed flawlessly. I've covered countless kilometers in this pair, and they've consistently met my expectations. However, it's important to note that if you prefer walking on pillows or can't tolerate the sensation of walking barefoot, these sandals may not be suitable for you. They provide just enough protection to instill confidence in each step, preventing cuts or stabs while allowing you to connect with the earth beneath your feet.
