Comfortable, light weight, flexible fit, great for

Wearing this shoes daily for 5 miles hikes in the last 6 months during the pandemic. The sole was almost worn out. It served me well. Nice light weight with evolfit molding to your feet. My left and right were not the same, so the shoes were great for this small issue. Just about to buy a replacement, but my size, 11.5, was sold out.

Big mistake lasted only a matter of hours.

Bought these as they appeared to be a good buy. Wore them one an they fell apart literally in less than five hours. Laminated section on the fabric of the shoe came away when the toe box was creased when walking. Took back the same day for a refund. No quibbles., Just very disappointed. Decathlon usually get there products fight, but these shoes were no way fit for purpose.

Feel funny for first hour or two due to the soft area around ankle, then they give a fit like a glove feel. Soles are outstandingly grippy with a not over flexible feel which I really like. I use flat mtb peddles on my cycles and the pins hold on to shoe wonderfully. They dry out quickly as well Do I like them? This is second pair purchased. Moan - would like a choice of another colour

Welcome to wet feet

Although comfortable to wear with decent grip, when walking thought wet grass I ended up with soaked feet, I assumed that a hiking boot would also be waterproof - my mistake. I have no problems with Decathlon who were very efficient, just this product


Didn't feel sturdy enough

Best at their price

At this price you can't get any brand better. Ran them in Oxfam with around 50km without problem at all. The fast access shoe laces idea is probably from some other big brand. Room of improvement on the anti slippery material and more pattern of grip is preferred.


Light weight. Comfortable

Best action shoe

Good grip, very comfortable in walking and trekking. Good cushion effect which normally not available in shoes with high grip.. light weight and easy to maintain. Should come out with more colors.

Hard sole

Sole is quite hard, feels fatigued after long usage.

Hi Vincent,

Thank you for your review on our FH500 Helium Men's Hiking Shoes - Black! We're sorry this item did not meet your expectations.

I'll bring your feedback back to our design team to see how we can improve the comfort level of the sole in our future designs.

Nevertheless, thank you for your support and I wish you a great week ahead! :)

Crosscontact sole

Sole design that has been the subject of extensive research in our laboratories, combined with a specific rubber formulation to offer a better compromise in terms of grip and traction. The design of the sole of the Forclaz 500 Helium will offer more grip than traction. Definition > Traction: this prevents slipping on soft ground (wet or dry). Grip: not slipping on hard ground (wet or dry).

Evofit technology

the inner foam, stretch mesh and exterior design are tailored to perfectly conform to the shape of your foot. This is combined with a welded film to provide good support and maximum comfort.

Buying and fitting advice?

Try on both boots while standing, with the socks worn for hiking. Try several models in several sizes if needed. Check the following 2 areas of comfort: the heel and the front of the foot when going downhill. There should be no compression points when fitting. Don't hesitate to walk around the store. Wear your boots for increasingly long periods to wear them in.

Which size should you choose?

For hiking, do not hesitate to take 1 size above your usual size to ensure optimal comfort when going downhill and prevent your toes from hitting the front of the boot. Advice: keep your toenails short and, before making your descent, check that your lacing prevents your foot from sliding toward the front of the boot.

Test in the field

The comfort of all our shoes is tested when they are tried on and used by typical users under the real-life conditions you will encounter in use. Our Mission Tests bring together the product manager with people who are not affiliated with Quechua to test, develop and approve the products.

Laboratory test

Further laboratory tests are also conducted to validate the following: tearing of eyelets and straps, gluing, toxicology, resistance to UV rays, abrasion of the sole and upper components, accelerated aging.



Product testing

Our team of designers is based at the foot of the Mont Blanc, in Haute-Savoie (France). All year round, we create and develop beautiful, simple and technically advanced products. We then test them ruthlessly in the field, because we believe that the only way to continually improve is to conduct tests in the real-life conditions that you will experience.
