The shoes are quite comfortable to walk in, the soles can be a bit thicker n spongier to be more comfortable for the feet. Overall a good buy.

Hi Daniel!

Thank you for taking the time to review our Quechua NH500 Men's Country Walking Shoes!

These hiking shoes are lightweight, durable and suitable for day-long country and forest walks in dry weather only. It also has a seamless stone guard at the front of the foot for extra protection from rocks. However, please be careful as these pair of sandals are definitely not designed for wet terrains. They are designed for the practice of hiking on loose off-road terrain (like an earthy forest path) or hard, stony trails (like a rocky coastal path). Feel free to drop by any of our stores and look for our friendly sports advisors who can assist you with more information or recommendation :) 

By the way, don't forget to check out our new products that have recently hit our shelves or click here to check them out online! Hope to hear another review from you again for our other products and feel free to join our Decathlon Singapore Hiking Club on Facebook for more outdoor related fun! :)

"Take a hike! The view is better where the wi-fi is weaker."

These shoes are incredibly comfortable & grippy for the price, genuinely LOVE these, & was contemplating getting a second pair in a different colour... but have learned the hard way, DON'T GET THEM WET!! As in I was caught in rain & muddier conditions than expected, decided to wash them by hand in the bath, & the colour from the tanned leather just runs like wet paint!! It was EVERYWHERE, & they now look a bit poor, over-used & miss-coloured to say the least. Disappointed, which is a shame as absolutely loved these until this point. Still comfy, light & grippy, but NOT hard wearing it seems.


Took them out for a day's hike and ended up with severe knee aches on the way back. The sole design now feels uncomfortable and has very low ankle support. The mouth of the shoe wasn't closing around my foot, giving even more discomfort. Context: Used to hiking super long trails and have existing fitness at intermediate level. Trail description: Jungle trail with no loose rocks. Gravel and soft ground. Sizing: No issue, as have existing Quechua products of same sizing and have used Decathlon shoes for over 5 years without a wrong size. Feet: Normal wide, with low arch. This isn't an issue of 'Breaking into' a shoe as the pain would be in my feet in that case and not my knees. Day to day activities like walking up and down a stair are now painful. Wouldn't recommend.

Excellent ..exceeded expectations

Bought second pair to wear our as first pair is for work....they are so comfortable and look good without the weight of a boot.

Poco duradera

La zapatilla es cómoda, pero está muy mal construída. Con poco más de un mes de uso comienza a despegarse la goma de la puntera y quedan ya muy feas.

Comodidad y diseño

Muy cómodas, con excelente sujeción, con un diseño muy singular y disimulado que te permite llevarlas con cualquier tipo de ropa.

Additional Product Information


Upper of

  • 60% Leather
  • 30% Polyester (pes) - Recycled
  • 10% Polyurethane

Outer sole of

Lining and sock of

  • 100% Polyester (pes) - Recycled

Crosscontact sole

The sole design is the product of a lengthy research process conducted in our laboratories, which has been combined with a special rubber formulation to optimize grip and traction. Given the variety of different needs, we always seek the best compromise between muddy off-road trails (like a forest path) and mineral trails (like a coastal path).

Designed for use on country paths

Our hiking boots are designed for use on country trails. Indeed, we choose the components of the sole and upper of our boots and test them to ensure that they are ideally suited to hiking on loose trails (e.g. forest paths made of soil) or rocky trails (e.g. rocky coastal paths). The boots may wear prematurely and feel uncomfortable when used on roads (asphalt). They are not suitable for mountain walking.

Reducing our environmental impact

For these boots, we selected more eco-friendly components: - natural chrome-free leather - Upper (front of the boot, tongue and top of the boot): 100% recycled polyester - tongue lining and collar: 100% recycled polyester - laces and lace loops made of 100% recycled PES - insole: 85% recycled polyurethane foam and 100% recycled polyester lining - outsole: 30% recycled rubber

What is the origin of our leather

We use so-called nubuck leather. It has a soft silky touch. The leather of this boot comes from cowhide. We don't kill any animals to obtain this leather: we only use the waste products from the food industry.

How to maintain your leather boots

After your hikes, we advise you to: - Leave to dry away from any heat source - When the leather is fully dry, scrub vigorously with a stiff brush to remove mud and dirt - Use a crepe or nubuck brush to remove any stains - For stubborn stains, clean with a brush and some lukewarm water - Leave to dry - Brush again with a stiff brush - Spray with a waterproofing spray: this adds luster to the leather and gives the color greater intensity.

Laboratory test

Laboratory tests are conducted to test the following elements: tearing of the eyelets and straps, gluing, toxicology, UV resistance, abrasion of the sole and the components of the upper, accelerated aging. We use these tests to improve the quality of our products and prevent the premature wear of our hiking boots.

How to choose the correct size of hiking boot

Try on both boots while standing, with the socks worn for hiking. Try on several models or sizes if necessary. Check the following 2 comfort points: the base of the heel and the front part of the foot going downhill. There should be no pressure points when trying them on. Feel free to walk around the store. Gradually wear in your boots over the course of a few hikes so that they conform to your feet.

The boot/sock combination plays an important role.

Many things cause blisters when hiking: rubbing, a crease in the sock, moisture, a boot size that is too small or too big, etc. It is therefore important choose the right size and to have socks made of the right material for your hiking boots.

How to choose the size of your hiking socks

You must choose the right sock size for your foot so that there are no additional creases in the sock: either because the sock is too big resulting in too much material around your foot, or because the sock is too small resulting in extra material getting pulled inside the boot.

How to choose the material of your hiking socks

Moisture must be effectively managed when hiking: this is often unavoidable given that we perspire. If your boot is breathable, it will eliminate the moisture of your perspiration: in this case, you need to choose a lightweight sock that is also breathable If your boot is relatively waterproof, you will need to make a different choice to protect yourself from rainwater: you need to go for a sock that will absorb your perspiration and keep it as far away from your foot as possible.

Which pair of socks is suitable for the nh500 boots?

Although this type of footwear offers some breathability, it is not sufficient to eliminate all the moisture of your perspiration. You should therefore choose NH500 low or mid socks: they contain cotton that absorbs moisture and they have a plush loop construction under the sock that keeps the moisture away from your foot. What's more, they are high enough to protect your ankle from the boot. This is an excellent combination for reducing blisters.


Our hiking boots are guaranteed for 2 years. Our commitment? To offer you hard-wearing products you can take with you on all your country walks. Because the products we like the most are those with a story behind them that is still ongoing!



Product testing

Our design team imagined, thought up and designed the Quechua products in France, at the foot of the Mont Blanc. We test them in the field with other hikers to make sure that they are comfortable and durable. This product has been tested by hikers in Brittany. We take them on as many trails as we can, in all weathers. These field tests involve lots of discussions, which are very useful in getting your feedback and planning our future collections!
