Hello Kitty,

Thanks for taking time to give your feedback on our FH500 shoes.

I'm really sorry to learn about your bad experience and I hope your feet feel better.

During the development process, our team in France has tested this model in real conditions with hikers to guarantee a high level of comfort and protection even after several hours of hiking in the mountains. So the situation you faced is not normal and I thank you for raising the issue to us.

From what I read, it seems like your feet felt too narrow in this model.

It could come from the size of the shoe : for all hiking shoes, we usually advice to select one size larger than your usual everyday shoes. When hiking, especially in warm weather, feet grow bigger and you will feel more comfortable in a larger size.

Another reason could be an exceptional quality issue in your shoe, which might feel a bit more narrow than usual.

Anyway, I highly encourage you to return your shoe to your closest Decathlon store, if you are able to. Our team will be happy to take a look at it and help you try another size or model, that would be more comfortable for you, or to propose you a refund.

I hope you can fully enjoy your next hike without any shoe issue,

See you soon at Decathlon,


Hiking/Trekking team

Extremely comfortable, but try them on first.

I tried the shores on in the shop before ordering. They are incredibly comfortable but do come up very small. I ordered two sizes bigger than I would usually wear, for comfort. Have worn them many times, they look and feel great

Comfortable and adhesive

These shoes are very comfy, with a soft sole. I feel very safe everywhere with them as they are anti-slip.

Dear Khun Swannie,

Thank you very much for your review. We are happy to know that you like our products and we will not stop developing it to keep our customers happiness :)

Great pair of walking shoes

I bought these for a weekend away in Dorset, we did a lot of walking on rocky beaches and cliff tops. These shoes are very comfortable and don't need wearing in, they stay tight on the foot also. The grip on the sole is fantastic and you can feel the effectiveness of this when walking on uneven terrain. The quality is very good and they feel they will last a long time before showing any wear. Very happy with this purchase.

MUY ACONSEJABLE Cómodas, ligeras y transpirables.

Perfectas para terrenos polivalentes, secos o resbaladizos. Al tener polaina de caña baja, limita la entrada de cualquier cuerpo externo.

Para llevar a la montaña

Muy ligeros, suaves no crean ampollas al caminar y la agujeta no se desata. ;)

Las mejores zapatillas que he tenido

Estoy encantada con estas zapatillas. Las uso para andar largas caminatas y subir y bajar en la montaña. Amortiguan genial y se agarran mucho al suelo. No llevan cordones por lo que no existe riesgo de tropezar con ellas. una de las características que más me gustan es que se ajustan al pie a la perfección por lo que puedes coordinar muy bien la pisada en montaña. Sin duda son las mejores que he tenido nunca y las recomiendo 100%

Crosscontact sole

We designed the sole based on long research at our laboratories, combined with a specific rubber formulation to offer the best compromise between grip and traction. The sole design of the FH 500 provides more grip and traction. Definition > Traction: prevents slipping on soft ground (muddy or dry). Grip: not slipping on hard ground (wet or dry).

Evofit concept

inner foam, stretch mesh and external design are designed to perfectly mimic the shape of the foot. Combined with a solid film, they provide good support and maximum comfort.

What size should you choose?

For hiking, try taking 1 shoe size up from your usual to ensure optimum comfort when going downhill and to prevent your toes from hitting the toe box. Tip: keep your toenails short and, before making your descent, check that your lacing prevents your foot from sliding toward the front of the boot.


In addition, we would like to point out that since these shoes are designed for Fast Hiking, the design team has chosen to focus mostly on foot hold and comfort. This is why at first that they may be difficult to put on for hikers with a wide foot. But don't worry!

Tips when purchasing and trying on?

Try on both shoes standing up and wearing the socks worn for hiking. Try on several models, several sizes if required. Check 2 comfort points: the base of the heel and the front part of the foot going down. Avoid all pressure points when trying them on. Always walk around the store. Gradually wear in your shoes over the course of a few hikes so that they conform to your feet.

Field test

All our shoes are tested for initial comfort and comfort in use by typical users and under the same conditions found in use. Our Mission Tests bring together the product manager with people who are not affiliated with Quechua to test, develop and approve the products.

Laboratory testing

Other laboratory tests are also conducted to validate the following elements: torn eyelets and straps, bonding, toxicology, UV resistance, abrasion of the sole and the components of the upper, accelerated aging.



Product testing

Our team of designers is based at the foot of Mont Blanc, in the Haute-Savoie region (France). All year round, we create and develop products that are attractive, simple and technologically advanced. These are then ruthlessly tested in the field because we believe that the only way to continually improve is to test the products under the real-life conditions that you will experience.
