Nice boots

Can't comment on performance as these are a gift for my Son who lives in Denmark and wanted some warm, waterproof boots for Xmas. They look great and feel comfy, but as they're unused atm, can't comment further.

Super comfy and sturdy.

Bought as a waterproof walking boot for winter. Great looking, well made, and comfy. Sturdy sole (as with most Decathlon footwear). Insole felt a little thin, but good in use. More style and comfort than a trad leather walking boot... I find them too unyielding for my less than youthful ankles. These boots are warm.

Utterly Disappointed!!

I have used this product for one week and got to know this is not at all a waterproof shoe..I have purchased it for 80 euros I can't exchange after the use ):

Poor quality and not comfortable at all.

The shoes in itself is not comfortable at all. Also about the quality i don’t feel its worth the price tag.

Expensive And Low Quality Filling For Canadian Tem

The product is not good for daily usage for Canadian temperature, it's lower quality in terms of filling material in the boots, over all it's been overpriced and no discount is provided to the customer be it in offer season or in the off season, however their competitors which is Columbia brand they take pride in good quality of shoes filling and winter accessories that can resist even the harshest weather conditions which are far better than decathlon.

Best in comfort

please do buy this whenever you’re going for hiking.


No doubt the product is very nice, however it is suggested that if the same is also launched in dark colour theme with slightly less inner lining I belive it will be great.

Good quality

Good for snowy areas

Quality Of Shoes Is Not Good

Used these shoes for a moderate trek and the shoe developed some wear off at the sides and at front part . It seemed that for another trek the shoes will completely wear off. According to hiking expert at store , these shoes are only meant to be hiked on snow . But as far I know to reach a snow terrain one needs to hike non snow terrain also to reach snow. Anyways warmth wise these shoes are really good ,if the other defects are resolved then it can be a good long lasting product for hardcore trekkers to choose.

A boot inspired by nature: the lynx – the snow cat.

In nature, animals are naturally equipped to adapt to the conditions of their environment: feathers and fur trap air, which insulates them from cold and heat, paws adapted to getting around on diverse, demanding and changing terrain ... It’s the Lynx, the true king of the snow, that inspired us to design your boot: wide, protected, cold-insulated paws and specific pads for easy movement and agility on the snow.

How can i be sure that my boots are warm enough for hiking in the winter?

We chose an ultra-warm lining and large volume that promotes insulation to protect you effectively from the cold. We tested it in the lab and in the field with representative users. We checked to what temperature it stays comfortable when you aren’t moving and when you walk, as it varies a lot: 12°F when static and -4°F when active. And we took into account the different ways women and men feel the cold.

How do my boots protect me from outside conditions?

Your boots are designed with leather and a membrane to guarantee waterproofing and breathability. A membrane is a very fine component (from 5 to 25 micrometers) applied to the inside of a fabric that prevents water ingress and allows moisture out. Their high upper with an elastic gaiter ensures good protection against the cold and the ingress of snow, while the midsole insulates you perfectly. Your feet will be well protected, warm and dry.

How can i be sure that my boots are 100% waterproof?

We have checked that your boots are waterproof with laboratory tests that simulate walking with feet half immersed in water and with wear and aging tests in the field. During the waterproofing test, we test 3 levels of waterproofing: 2000 flexes (about 2.5-mile walk), 4000 flexes (about 5-mile walk) and 8000 flexes (about 10-mile walk). This boot model has been tested for up to 4000 flexes, which is equivalent to 5 miles of walking.

Breathable boots for optimal thermal comfort

Thermal comfort is a balance between the warmth of the boots and their ability to allow the foot to breathe. Too much heat or not enough breathability, and damp accumulates and cold can set in. We have designed your boots with your activity in mind, be it regular or intense, with a membrane that prevents water ingress and allows moisture out.

What is the difference between traction and snorkeling?

The grip of the boots is linked to the studs, their number and shape. Traction depends on the materials and ridges used on the soles, like your car's tires. Grip optimizes propulsion, prevents the boot from sliding back when climbing and stabilizes the boot. Traction prevents sliding and slipping on smooth terrain and difficult conditions (rain, snow, ice), increasing the grip of the sole.

Which type of grip and traction does this shoe provide?

Equipped with SNOWCONTACT soles, your boots are designed for maximum grip comfort for hiking and traction on snow. The location and height of the studs (5 mm) is inspired by lynx feet; they are spaced strategically for optimal grip when hiking on snow on steep terrain. The surface and design of the studs are designed to perfectly grip the layer of hard snow and evacuate excess water so they don’t slip.

How does the snowcontact technology used on the boot sole help me?

The SNOWCONTACT soles are made with a specific component and lug pattern that is designed to ensure the best possible grip and traction. SNOWCONTACT soles are more effective than traditional soles on snow. When walking on ice, the only way to ensure optimum safety is to add ice grippers to your boots.

Why is it important to have good support in a hiking boot?

Boot support is essential for your comfort when walking. Indeed, good support optimizes your walking on uneven ground (uphill or down), prevents your foot from sliding in the boot and limits the appearance of blisters. There is less loss in transmitting your energy to the boot and therefore less fatigue. This is especially important when you are snowshoeing.

Will my boots withstand regular use over time?

Our engineers conduct laboratory tests to guarantee your full satisfaction in use. We validate the following elements among other things: strength of the eyelets and straps, strength of the glued assemblies, toxicology, UV resistance, abrasion resistance of the sole and upper components and accelerated aging.

Why choose a leather snow hiking boot?

The leather is ultra-comfortable, durable (natural material) and soft to improve comfort. This material is naturally waterproof and breathable. Warm in winter and cool mid-season, leather naturally thermo-regulates the boot. We recommend you brush (soft brush) your boots well to look after them and optimize their longevity.

How should i choose my footwear for hiking in the snow?

To be well equipped in winter, we recommend that you follow these principles : Warmth: warmth provided by a warm pair of socks (ideally containing a suitable percentage of wool) Breathability: Choose the sock according to the intensity of the hike, and make sure you get a breathable model to minimize moisture. Boot height: adapt the height of the sock to the height of the boot and preferably choose high models if you want more protection.

How to protect the technical qualities of my boots?

The water-repellent property of a fabric is its ability to make water run off its surface without absorbing it. In this way, the fabric does not soak up water and therefore remains lightweight, breathable and warm. Water repellency is obtained by a treatment applied on the outer surface of the fabric. This treatment needs to be renewed during the lifetime of the garment. Products (spray or liquid) designed specifically for this purpose are available in our stores.

How does my product warranty work?

This product is guaranteed for 2 years from the date shown on the sales receipt. A product covered by the warranty will be exchanged free of charge. The warranty covers product defects, excluding those resulting from normal wear and tear and improper use.
