XC 500 MTB Shoes

I bought these MTB shoes for doing XC. They gave me average satisfaction with very good stiffness under the pedal, but heel support that could be improved even after tightening the BOA. About a month ago I started feeling painful pressure on the top of my toenails. Today this pain has become unbearable to the point of not being able to put on the shoes. As I put my hand inside the shoes, I feel stiff creases pressing down on my toenails. My wife who had the same shoes had the same problem after a week. Decathlon reimbursed us. There must be a design problem.

Bad product

We bought these shoes for our son a few weeks ago. On the 3rd use, one of the clamping guides tore off. I went back to the store in Saint Omer to have the problem noted, but as I no longer had the receipt, I was told that an exchange was not possible. It is shameful. Indeed I didn't have the receipt, we had thrown it away, we didn't think we had to come back! I was told "there is no evidence that you did not buy it second hand". I told them that we were being honest. Very disappointed with the product and with the decathlon team.

The tip gave way

The inner part of the tip collapsed making it impossible to use, after about 2000 km.

The tightening boa and zero it held 15 days and it does not even tighten


After a few outings I started to feel sleepy. I thought it was the cold, then the tightness, but in fact I just noticed that at the ends, inside the shoe, the lining is totally deformed and looks like cells that compress the foot . Impossible to put it back in place, the shoes are HS.

good potential but points to review...

I bought these shoes with the intention of switching to clipless pedals over a year ago but have no longer worn them for several reasons. After static testing of the shoe, I find it pleasantly comfortable, the boa system is more than effective and the support seems good. I thus adjust my wedges to go riding. I squeeze these very hard so that they don't move: a few unclips in my garden and it looks good. I go to try them on an outing and after a few kilometres, I can no longer unclip and it's the cleat that slips on the axle as if it had already loosened... When I return, I notice that it has rotated on its axis despite my good tightening, the wedge tore off a good part of the fiberglass present on the sole. I decide to try again by tightening even more and yet, I am still faced with the same problem of recurring loosening despite the use of the original screws. Impossible to ride in these conditions because I find myself not being able to unclip in places where it is sometimes dangerous!

Great shoes

As a beginner clipless pedalist, I am satisfied with it.

After several uses a discomfort inside the shoe as if newspaper had been put there to prevent the foot from entering. I can't wear them anymore

Low Price High Performance

I bought the product thanks to Ahmet working at Maltepe Decathlon, I did not know that Decathlon had such high quality shoes under the Rockrider brand before. Maybe I wouldn't have come across this shoe if it wasn't for someone who informed and informed me, so I would like to thank our friend Ahmet very much.

Great shoe for cycling and very good clamping boa. A bit narrow for my body type. To see how the tightening boa will age over time.

defective material

After buying the shoe, making a change 6 months later, the same defect occurs in the shoe within the first year. The inner toe deforms when it gets wet, bends and generates folds that make it impossible to use. It happened with the first shoes, and it happened again with the second ones.
