Quality of material and workmanship is bad

I know this review is long overdue considering the time elapsed since purchase but here goes. Size and width is fine as is the sole but the top is really horrible quality. The stiches came undone, the lace loops broke within 4 months of purchase and water seeps in from the top with even a slight splash on the shoe. Unfortunately my mother just took it to a local cobbler and got it repaired while I was away on one of my outstation trips which void the warranty anyways so I just stopped wearing them. Really disappointed with this experience since I am a repeat buyer/user of Quecha jackets/shoes etc. Will think before buying it again.

Good Service

Managed to get all my hiking stuff with the help of a Decathlon staff (male) in Joo Koon Branch. He has good product knowledge and able to recommend me according to my needs and activities. I must say lucky for Decathlon to have a staff like him. He is also patience and helpful. A pity that I cannot remember his name. He is a quite tall fit Malay staff working afternoon shift on Wed, 11th March. I was there till closing time with my daughter to buy the hiking stuff.

Hi Regina,

Thank you for your lovely feedback about our service and the item too: "Men’s Waterproof Mountain Walking Boots Mid MH500 – Blue/Orange".

We are very glad that our said Sports Advisor had done great justice to your time coming over to our Store, and had indeed rendered you and your daugther an excellent service. And our course for him, to be in privileged position to recommend you a pair of boots that suit your needs. Those boots you purchased, however, are now end of line products. Meaning, we have brought in a new design/colour to replaced them (the old ones are still available but with limited sizes, as they are good bargains worth the money, that no one could ignore, and you are certainly fortunate to grab a size for yourselves indeed!).

In any case, here is the link of the new designs, for both men's & women's cutting, if you want to check them out:

 We hope to see you soon, when our Stores can be opened again. 
Meantime, stay safe and take care, Regina.

Stay healthy, keep fit & stay happy at home, during this circuit-breaker time!

Ankle support is not good

This is A trekking ankle length shoes, and if it cannot support my ankle on uneven surface, Whats the use? I fractured my arm because of it. I twisted my ankle on almost plane surface because of this shoes.

A really good buy

Bought this pair for my son for trekking and hiking in Malaysia mountains. He totally digs it because of its stability while walking uneven grounds. His boots are the most dirty ones due to muddy puddles but the water didn't seep through his socks keeping his toenails dry and healthy!

Hello Fauziah,

Thank you for your review on this Men's waterproof mountain walking shoes - MH500 Mid - Blue/Yellow.

Glad to know that your son love this pair of shoe. I agree with you on the stability while walking on uneven grounds, thanks to the highly non-slip rubber outsole with 5mm gripping studs.

Also, this shoe is fitted with the EVOFIT technology which allows it to perfectly fit the shape of your foot thus ensuring you to walk comfortably for long hours.

Hope to see you again in any of our stores! :)

really comfortable shoe

The product is really good as it is water proof along with no worries of skidding even in snow.

Not comfortable for long walk

I am feeling pain while using these shoes for walking 3-4 kms only

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.

Additional Product Information


Outer sole of

  • 50% Ethylene vinyl acetate
  • 50% Rubber - Nitril butadiene rubber

Upper of

  • 10% Polyurethane
  • 30% Split bovine leather
  • 60% Polyamide

Lining and sock of

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.
