bought these for a trip back in 2017 and use it for whenever I go on treks/hikes. good for dry terrain but also decent in muddy terrain and rainy weather as it is waterproof/resistant. decent comfort and light. wish theyd last longer as the soles have started to come apart with occasional use. I may get the soles fixed cos I like this pair.
Thank you for your feedback on our NH 500 Mens Wakling Shoes - Khaki/Orange!
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 ageing. We use these tests to improve the quality of our products and prevent the premature wear of our hiking boots.
We will forward the other half of your feedback to our Quechua Design & Brand Team as they are best to look into the matter for their continuous improvement efforts.

Hurts on the heel quite a lot after waking a long distance. Build quality looks good but lack of comfort kills it
Most comfortable shoes for any outdoor occasions, well protect your feet, high flexibility, durable ... value for money. Need to work on heels material, especially when it was brand new. Improve the shoe leash after awhile, it will be slippery when you tied it up.
Glad to hear from you and thank you so much in taking time to provide us an excellent & honest review about our hiking shoes - NH500 Men's Country Walking Boots - Khaki Orange.
These Nature Hiking (NH) intermediate series shoes are indeed designed to give comfort for a hike or walk at lowland terrains and they are built lightweight with a wide range of tightening options - thanks to the lacing that goes down the front of the foot. Perhaps you could also employed the "surgeon knots" tying technique to prevent it from loosening. Do come to Joo Koon Decathlon Store, if it's feasible for your travelling needs, and we could share with you about the boots locking lacing techniques to enhanced your boots performance so that you can yields it's maximum potentials. On an another note, do also purchase your boots early (in between a month buffer period to you actual hiking trip, or at least a minimum of two weeks prior to it) to allow "breaking" the boots (seasoned it) so that it would be comfortable to use on the actual hike.
We hope these tips are useful for you, Jay and if you are in any of our Decathlon Stores, do not hesitate to approach any of our friendly Mountain/ Hiking|Trekking Sports Advisors and they will certainly be of great service to you. Make use of them, take "advantage" of them and of their wealth of experience & expertise to meet your needs, but in the nice way, of course!
Take care, and we hope to see you soon!!

Out of the box color combination.
Simple but nice looking and comfortable shoes. I use then for casual wear.
Got these trainers after a friend recommended them. Very comfy and good all round all round trainers.
Have worn these almost daily for 18 months and used regularly for hiking in mountains and as an approach shoe and have lasted very well, excellent value for money. NOTE: This is a street shoe, its not intended for mountain hiking. Grip is very poor and stability is non-existent. Buy something else if you need a high performance shoe. But, shoe looks great and is an excellent budget option.
These are casual shoes at best. There is no support at all. Flimsy quality. Now chucked in cupboard a hurt if you go for a longer walk. Of course if you have worn them outside won't accept a return in store. A disgrace.
I bought these shoes on the slovak decathlon eshop one year ago. Before used simmilare Salewa product. Since their pricing is very high I tried NH500. They are very fine, comfortable, I was able to walk several 20 miles hikes. Unfortunatelly upper rubber side part on the front is now having crack about 1 cm long. I would contact local ( Slovak) office, but unfortunatelly I dont have reciept.
Water repellent leather approach shoes. Fit like rock shoes, great for quick scramble or walking trail. Grippy and stable. Close fitting. A third of the price of Scarpa's version. Worth a punt at £35 - used every day so far super comfy and great value.
Great quality for a fantastic price. Although leather upper stitching has unwound to open up a hole on the instep. Otherwise it'd be a 5
I like the style of shoe comfortable has lasted about a year thats with me wearing them most days,however they are not waterproof as stated above. i usually proof my walking boots even then most are not really water tight even some Gore tex lined. overall nice casual shoe for money.
Good value reasonable quality for price.in fact my second pair.
very comfy, worn for everyday use, will have to get another pair. tread wearing quite quickly under the heel but they are worn all the time.
Outer sole of
- 70% Rubber - Styrene butadiene rubber
- 30% Ethylene vinyl acetate
- 80% Cowhide leather
- 20% Polyester cationic
Lining and sock of
- 100% Polyester (pes) - Recycled
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).
For these NH500 2018 shoes, we have selected more environmentally friendly elements: - inner upper made from 100% recycled polyester - external sole made from 30% recycled rubber
Our hiking shoes are designed for use on off-road 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. unpaved forest paths) or rocky trails (e.g. rocky coastal paths). Road use (asphalt) may lead to premature wear on your boots and cause discomfort. They are not suitable for mountain hiking.
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.
We use what is called a “suede split leather.” It has a soft and silky touch. The leather used for these boots is of bovine origin. We do not kill any animals to obtain this leather: we only use leather waste from the agrofood industry.
After your hikes, we advise that you: - Leave your boots to dry near a heat source - Brusquely brush, using a hard-bristled brush, the dry leather to remove any mud and dirt - Use a soft-bristled brush or nubuck eraser to remove any stains - If the stains are stubborn, clean them using a brush and a little warm water - Leave to dry - Brush again using a hard-bristled brush - Spray with a waterproofing product: this will make the leather shine and bring out the colors.
Try on both shoes standing up and wearing the socks worn for hiking. Try several models, several sizes if necessary. Check 2 comfort points: the heel seating and the front of the foot on a downward slope. Avoid any pressure points when fitting. Don't hesitate to walk around the store. Break in your boots gradually during their first hikes to adapt them to your foot.
There are multiple factors that may cause blisters when you are hiking: rubbing, a crease in the sock, moisture, a boot size that is too small or too big, etc. It is therefore important to choose the right size and to have socks made of the right material for your hiking boots.
You need to choose the correct sock size for your feet to avoid any extra folds forming: These folds may form because the sock is too big ad therefore there is too much material around your foot, or because the sock so small and is pulled toward the inside of your foot.
Moisture must be effectively managed when hiking: We sweat; it’s bound to happen. If your boot is breathable, it will evacuate the humidity caused by your sweat: This means you need to choose a lightweight, breathable sock If your boots are waterproof, to protect you from humidity created by rain, you won’t make the same choice: choose a sock that will absorb your sweat, and direct it as far as possible away from your foot.
These boots are slightly breathable, but not enough to evacuate all humidity created by your sweat. So, you should opt for the NH500 low or mid socks: they contain cotton, which absorbs humidity, and they have a loop construction underfoot, which distances the humidity from your foot. They are high enough to protect your ankle from the boot. This is an excellent combination to limit the appearance of blisters.
Our hiking boots are guaranteed for 2 years. Our commitment? To offer you long-lasting products that you can use on all your nature hikes. Because the products we like the most are those with a story behind them that is still continuing!
It is in France, at the foot of the Mont Blanc, that our design team imagined, thought up and designed the Quechua products. We test them in the field with other hikers to make sure that they are comfortable and durable. From the Forest of Fontainebleau, to Brittany, to give just a few examples... We ventured out onto as many trails as possible, in all weather conditions. These moments involve a lot of discussions. We use this to get your feedback and prepare our future collections!
