Nice and comfortable

Highly recommend to buy!

Excellent boots

Best boots I’ve ever had. So comfortable. Lightweight. Have protected my feet from mud and water many times now. I clean them after each hike. Width suits my slightly wider feet extremely well. So much better than a lot of the alternatives.

Comfy hiking boots.

I found it very comfy to wear. The only thing I didn't like is the tying up of the shoe laces as I am a senior. If there is BOA type of design, it will be perfect.

Excellent Boot for the Price

I have a wide short foot and these boots are the most comfortable I have probably ever worn. Excellent for day hikes or short overnight trips!!! For this usage I would rate 4.5 stars - the only flaw I would say is the grip of the sole is not the best. However, I have now used these for extended multi day hikes in Vic High Country - not what they are designed for! But so comfortable I have chosen these as my current preferred boot. Good support, reasonable water resistance, not great grip in muddy or loose conditions, bit soft on the sole and wear on boot is harsh. But I will reiterate, these are not really designed for such harsh treatment. At the discount price, highly recommended! Especially for those of us who find it very very difficult to find comfortable foot wear.

Great beginner shoes

I am not doing too much trekking, but this show did hold up really nice climbing and descending a relatively sleep, rocky/slippery track. Haven't tested it being waterproof, but I expect medium performance - anyways I am not planning on using it too much in rain or crossing rivers. Otherwise nice solid feel, good materials, especially for half price, that I got them on.

I love the Decathlon

Light weight boot, but holds foot firmly. Have only worn 4 times, but on steep terrain with a lot of rocks and rough uneven surfaces. No slipping on dirt or wet rocks.

Outsole with grip

The grip of our soles is certified. To be awarded this certification, the shoes must pass laboratory tests to assess the grip rate on different surfaces (Smooth, Rugged, Dry, Wet). To validate these tests, we assess the quality of our soles in the field, the mountains, by a panel of representative testers over 310 miles

Waterproofing test

In a laboratory, the shoe is immersed in water to mid height on a mechanical arm that simulates a number of steps. With this test we can determine a time and a number of miles that the shoe can walk while staying dry. - 2,000 bends, about 30 minutes of hiking - 10,000 bends, about 3 hours - 30,000 bends, approximately 8 hours - 50,000 bends, approximately 12 hours Then we confirm that the shoe keeps its promises in use on the ground and in the rain.

Making waterproofing last longer

To keep your feet dry, it is advisable to use waterproof gaiters or mini-gaiters that will protect the top of the shoe from incoming water, but also small stones, sand, etc. We advise you to re-waterproof your shoes twice a year using a waterproofing product (look for "waterproofing" on our Decathlon website) that will help to restore the original water-repellent properties and combat external staining.

Evofit concept

This shoe is fitted with the EVOFIT concept. With its stretch materials and specific design for the area of the foot where the joints are located, EVOFIT technology allows the shoe to perfectly fit the shape of your foot.

Which size should you choose?

The most important thing is to try several sizes and models of shoes to find the best one for you! A size above your usual size can be taken to prevent toes from pressing against the tip when going downhill, provided that the foot is held properly in place to avoid friction. Advice: keep your toenails short and, before a long descent check that your lacing is tight enough to prevent your foot from sliding forward inside the shoe.

Purchasing advice/how to try on your shoes

Some Decathlon stores are equipped with a test course. 1. Try both shoes on, standing up, wearing the socks you use for hiking. 2. Tighten the laces, taking care to correctly restart the tightening. 3. Check 2 points: - the heel does not take off before the shoe when you walk uphill. - the foot does not slide and the toes do not press onto the front when going downhill. 4. Try on several sizes and models. Break them in gradually to adapt them to your foot.

How to avoid blisters?

Find all our advice here:

Which socks?

A waterproof shoe will be less breathable than a non-waterproof shoe. You should therefore opt for socks like the MH500, MH520 and MH900 with a high or medium upper (adapted to the height of the shoe) to wick away perspiration and reduce friction.

Optimize the capabilities of your shoes: replace your insoles!

The original insole in your shoes is designed to accommodate most feet. A change of insole can bring: 1. Improved support: some soles are preformed or reinforced to better support the arch of the foot. 2. More comfort: the insoles can also provide heat and/or cushioning. 3. Longer life: restore the support and comfort of your shoes by replacing the insole each season.
