Surprising Good

Needed new boots for winter. Was going to opt for a more well known brand, but looked at these whilst browsing. Website is great and gives you all the technical info, so thought I'd try these boots. Arrived quicker than expected. Looked great and felt comfortable straight away. Sizing was perfect. Been wearing them every day for a month. No issues, pinches or blisters. Really pleased and surprised by the comfort and quality, given the relatively low price! Looking to get another pair in a different colour soon. Buy them, you won't regret it!

Slippery when wet

These are the only product that I have returned to Decathlon so I cannot recommend them. On the plus side they are comfortable, they took a little bedding in which is rare for Decathlon shoes. They are good on dry paths. On the downside they are slippery as soon as moisture is on the ground. Dry snow is ok if you concentrate. Wet snow or slush is just dangerous. Wet grass has me slipping and having to correct myself to prevent falling. I have had back issues three times with these. They are waterproof but no use in the wet

I dont like that shoes.

Sorry to say . But when I use it it gives my feet ache . Maybe problem with my feet. I dont want to blame the shoes. Decathlon customer service accepts my reason and I give back with full refund. Love decathlon

Excellent shoes!

I got these shoes as a present for my brother and he absolutely loved them! They are comfortable to wear and keeps his feet dry in the Scottish rains.

Waterproof but no grip on wet surface

The most waterproof show I've ever owned Unfortunately rubbish for walking in the countryside when it's wet as they do not grip at all so you just slip everywhere.

Amazing Shoes

Waterproof, comfortable, wonderful

Very comfortable

Only had these a few days, so cannot comment on their longevity, but i have been wearing them every day and they are supremely comfortable straight from the off. They seem to be waterproof, although not properly tested, they stood up to walking through long wet grass without getting wet socks. They look good too, although the toe box material seems to be a bit oversized and looks a bit puckered when they are done up tightly.

Great Product

Size is in line with other decathlon footwear. Comfortable and seem durable and waterproofing seems good despite not looking like a 'waterproof' product. Ordered online and the packaging was pleasantly minimal - though still largely plastic.

Additional Product Information

  • 10% Polyurethane
  • 30% Polyester (pes) - Recycled

Lining and sock of

  • 100% Polyester (pes) - Recycled

Grippy soles on natural footpaths

The sole’s design is the result of extensive research carried out in our labs. We favored a specific rubber formula that optimizes grip and resistance. As the requirements are not the same, we systematically look for the best compromise for hiking on loose off-road terrain (like a forest path) as well as hard, stony trails (like a coastal path).

Designed for use on country trails

Our hiking boots 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.

To reduce our environmental impact

For these boots, we have chosen components that are more respectful of the environment: - Upper (front of the boot, flap, and top of the boot): 52% recycled polyester and 48% dope dyed polyamide (dye using less water) - tongue and ankle support lining: 100% recycled polyester - Laces and loops: 100% recycled polyester - Insole: 85% recycled polyurethane foam and 100% polyester lining - Outsole: 30% recycled rubber

Where does our leather come from?

We use a leather called nubuck. It has a soft, silky feel. The leather used on these boots comes from cows We do not kill any animals to obtain this leather: We only use waste from the food industry. The leather on these boots comes from French skins that are then tanned in Spain.

How to look after your leather boots

After your hikes, we advise you to: - Dry your boots away from any heat sources - Brush the dry leather vigorously with a stiff brush to remove mud and dirt - Use a crepe brush or nubuck rubber to remove stains - If the stains persist, clean with a brush and a little warm water - Leave to dry - Brush again with a stiff brush - Use spray-on waterproofing: This will make the leather shine and bring out the colors

Waterproofing test

Footwear equipped with a membrane is laboratory and field tested to ensure optimal waterproofing and breathability. To start, they are immersed in water with pressurized air inside to check that no bubbles form on the surface of the boot. Next, they are fitted to a mechanical arm that simulates walking half-immersed in water to test that the inside remains perfectly dry.

3 levels of waterproofing

In the impermeability test, we test 3 levels of waterproofing: - 2000 flexes, about 2 hours of hiking - 4000 flexes, about 4 hours of hiking - 8000 flexes, about 8 hours of hiking The NH500 Mid WP men's boots were tested for 8000 flexes in the laboratory. This means they will stay waterproof for an 8-hour hike. Of course, as soon as the boots are dry, they become waterproof again.

Laboratory tested

Laboratory tests were also conducted to test the following elements: tearing eyelets and straps, gluing, toxicology, UV resistance, abrasion resistance of outsole and upper components, accelerated aging. These tests allow us to improve the quality of our products and prevent premature wear of our hiking boots.

How to keep your boots waterproof for longer

We advise that you use a re-waterproofing spray several times per year, to restore the original water-repellency and prevent staining.

How to choose the right size hiking boots?

Try on both boots, standing up and wearing the socks you use for hiking. Try on several models or sizes if necessary. Check 2 comfort points: - the heel seating - the front of the foot on a downward slope Avoid any pressure points when fitting. Feel free to walk around the store. Gradually start using your boots during your 1st few hiking trips to break them in.

The boot/sock combination plays an important role

There are multiple factors that may cause blisters when you are walking: rubbing, a crease in the sock, moisture, a shoe 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.

How to choose the size of your hiking socks?

You must choose the right sock size for your foot so that there are no additional creases in the sock: either because the sock is too big and there is too much fabric around your foot, or because the sock too small and is pulled down into the boot.

How to choose the fabric of your hiking socks

Moisture must be effectively managed when hiking: We sweat; it’s bound to happen. If your boot is breathable, it will wick away moisture from your perspiration. It is therefore necessary to choose a light and breathable sock as well. If your boots are relatively waterproof, you will not make the same choice to protect you from the moisture of the rain: Choose a sock that will absorb your sweat, and direct it as far as possible away from your foot.

What socks should you wear with the nh500 mid wp boot?

Although the waterproof membrane of these boots is breathable, they do not eliminate the moisture of your perspiration as effectively as a ventilated boot. You should opt for the NH500 High socks: They contain moisture-absorbing cotton and have a reverse terry-knit construction under the sock that wicks moisture away from your foot. They are high enough to protect your ankle from the boot. It's an excellent combination for reducing the chance of blisters.
