Very comfortable shoes, ready for the rain

I haven't experienced rain or ponds with them yet but I have hiked a few times and I find them to be extremely comfortable with a great sole ready to take the rockier paths. Good grip on slippery rocks as well. So far I'm very happy

Not good quality control/blisters

I has high hopes for this shoe. They're sturdy and seem perfect for hiking. But the poor workmanship on one shoe has left deep blisters in one of my heels. It's clearly an assembly problem because I can feel the plastic heel guard intruding where it shouldn't on one shoe, but not the other. Unfortunately, I this would make me think twice about buying Decathlon shoes, especially since their return policy seems very restrictive. So I will just stare at the shoes in my closet, unused.

thank you for taking the time to send this review to us.

Your satisfaction is essential for us and I am very disappointed with the bad experience you lived with these shoes.

Those shoes have been designed with a great attention on comfort, during the validation phase, many people tested the shoe in the mountains in various conditions and we are extremely proud of the results on comfort.

Indeed, what you describe is unfortunately an assembly error during the production phase. I would like to apologise for this very bad experience and I would be very happy to send to you a new pair of shoes. Can you please share with me your postal address and size and I will organise this. I hope you can get the real experience with our shoes :)

Good buy

I didnt like the colour but there was no stock. I bought it in rush. I usually use 2E ( width). Its causing bit discomfort. They come in standard sizes. So try out feel comfortable. Been using it for last 8 weeks. Very comfortable for hikes especially in wet weather.

Average score

Assembly average as glue traces are still visible. The design is rather akward as the rear part of the shoe feels odd & low. As if it can fall off at any time. The foot sole is excellent! There seems to be a cushon inside

Great walking shoes

Good quality for the price, last pair lasted about 2 years and I wear them just about every day and walk a lot. I’ve ditched my golf shoes and only wear these as the tread is great non slip - happy customer, Martin

Great shoes at a reasonable price. Comfortable from day one. My second pair to replace a worn out pair. Better than more expensive brands.

Which hiking frequency and intensity?

We have classified our product in terms of performance and function to suit the 3 levels of hiking: - Occasional: 12 hikes a year for approximately 3 to 4 hours, under 6 miles and under 2300' of vertical distance. - Regular: 20 outings a year. 4 to 6 hours, 6 to 12 miles, 2300' to 4000' of vertical distance per outing. - Intensive: for over 20 outings per year. For over 6 hours, over 12 miles, 4000' to 6500' of vertical distance per outing.

Sustainable development information

For the inner sole fabric coating of these boots, we dye the thread during manufacturing to reduce the environmental impact. Textile dyeing requires a lot of water but also produces waste water from the dye baths. To reduce this environmental impact, we use a mass pigmentation process that involves adding the color pigments when the thread itself is produced.

Sole with grip

The grip of our soles is certified. To be awarded certification, the boots 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, in the mountains, by a panel of representative testers over 310 miles

Waterproofing test

In a laboratory, the boot is immersed in water to mid-height on a mechanical arm that flexes to simulates a number of steps. With this test, we can determine a time and number of miles that the boot can walk while staying dry. Then we confirm, in the field or under the rain, that the boot meets its promises.

Making waterproofing last longer

To keep your feet dry, we advise you to use a waterproof gaiter or mini-gaiter to protect the top of your boots and prevent water, pebbles, and sand from getting in. We advise re-waterproofing your boots twice a year using a re-waterproofing agent (search for ‘waterproofing’ on our Decathlon website) which will help you restore the original water-repellent qualities and help prevent stains on the outside.

Evofit concept

This boot 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 boot to perfectly fit the shape of your foot.

Product design: our expertise

Our Quechua global design center is based in Passy, at the foot of Mont-Blanc in Haute Savoie. This location makes it a real meeting place for our teams (designers, product managers, engineers, etc.) and outdoor sports enthusiasts. A great asset for designing our hiking products and providing you with all our expertise.

Which size should you select?

The most important thing is to try on several sizes and styles of boots to find the one most suited to you! You can take a size above your usual one to prevent the toes from bumping into the toe box when going downhill, provided the foot is properly supported to avoid friction. Tip: 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 boot.

Buying tips / how do you try your boots on?

Some Decathlon stores have a test route. 1. Try on both boots, standing up and wearing the socks you use for hiking. 2. Tighten the laces, taking care to correctly balance the tightening. 3. Check 2 points: - The heel does not come up before the boot when you walk uphill. - The foot does not slide and the toes do not press against the front when going downhill. 4. Try on several sizes and models. Break them in gradually to adapt them to your foot.

Which socks?

A waterproof boot will be less breathable than a non-waterproof boot. Socks like the MH500 with a medium-length upper are therefore better for wicking away perspiration and reducing friction.

Optimize the capabilities of your boots: replace your insoles!

The original insole in your boots 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 boots by replacing the insole each season.

How should you look after your boots?

- Leave to air-dry. - Remove dry mud with a stiff brush. - Clean marks using a brush and some warm water - Leave to dry - Spray with a re-waterproofing product to restore the water resistance to the upper.



Product testing

All our models are tested by users representative of our target market in conditions identical to those you encounter yourself when using them. We believe that carrying out 'real-life' testing is the only way to design and continuously advance the technical relevance and design of all our Quechua products.
