Taking a long time to break in

Look, maybe my expectations are too high but I wore these pretty much continuously for a couple of months and they never quite broke in. Maybe the shape of my foot is wrong for them (I have fairly high arches) but definitely recommend spending some time in them before committing to them for a big trip. Putting that I won't recommend but YMMV of course.

Love these shoes!

I have found these shoes to be very comfortable and warm. I can easily wear them for a full day of work.

Not a good waterproof hiking shoes

I bought this shoes for its water proof rating for Mount Kosciusko summit talk which is normally 4-5 hours of hike. Before it get wet, it was comfortable on trail. After 2 hours of hike in drizzling my foot were wet and uncomfortable on trail. At the end of the activity, I had sore toe nail and wet shoes. Not worth a money I spend to get water proof shoes.

Hello Aysha,

Thank you for your feedback :) Apologies that you were not fully satisfied with our quality.

Aysha, as they are rated to 8 hours, we would request you to please bring back the product to the store so our team can check it. If it's a genuine manufacturing defect, we can exchange/return the same for you.

Hope this helps!

Better than expected. Super comfy and waterproof

I bought these boots to replace a pair I’d had for years which I’ve struggled to replace. As soon as I tried them on they felt like I’d always worn them. I took them on a walking holiday recently & they were really comfortable, they are definitely waterproof & I’d highly recommend. In fact I might go & get a second pair!

Which hiking frequency and intensity?

We have classified our product in terms of performance and function to suit the 3 levels of hiking: - Occasional: 12 hikes a year for approximately 3 to 4 hours, under 6 miles and under 2300' of vertical distance. - Regular: 20 outings a year. 4 to 6 hours, 6 to 12 miles, 2300' to 4000' of vertical distance per outing. - Intensive: for over 20 outings per year. For over 6 hours, over 12 miles, 4000' to 6500' of vertical distance per outing.

Sustainable development information

For the inner sole fabric coating of these boots, we dye the thread during manufacturing to reduce the environmental impact. Textile dyeing requires a lot of water but also produces waste water from the dye baths. To reduce this environmental impact, we use a mass pigmentation process that involves adding the color pigments when the thread itself is produced.

Sole with grip

The grip of our soles is certified. To be awarded certification, the boots must pass laboratory tests to assess the grip rate on different surfaces (Smooth, Rugged, Dry, Wet). To validate these tests, we assess the quality of our soles in the field, in the mountains, by a panel of representative testers over 310 miles

Waterproofing test

In a laboratory, the boot is immersed in water to mid-height on a mechanical arm that flexes to simulates a number of steps. With this test, we can determine a time and number of miles that the boot can walk while staying dry. Then we confirm in the field or under the rain, that the boot meets its promises.

Making waterproofing last longer

To keep your feet dry, we advise you to use a waterproof gaiter or mini-gaiter to protect the top of your boots and prevent water, pebbles, and sand from getting in. We advise re-waterproofing your boots twice a year using a re-waterproofing agent (search for ‘waterproofing’ on our Decathlon website) which will help you restore the original water-repellent qualities and help prevent stains on the outside.

Evofit concept

This boot is fitted with the EVOFIT concept. With its stretch materials and specific design for the area of the foot where the joints are located, EVOFIT technology allows the boot to perfectly fit the shape of your foot.

Product design: our expertise

Our Quechua global design center is based in Passy, at the foot of Mont-Blanc in Haute Savoie. This location makes it a real meeting place for our teams (designers, product managers, engineers, etc.) and outdoor sports enthusiasts. A great asset for designing our hiking products and providing you with all our expertise.

Which size should you select?

The most important thing is to try on several sizes and styles of boots to find the one most suited to you! You can take a size above your usual one to prevent the toes from bumping into the toe box when going downhill, provided the foot is properly supported to avoid friction. Tip: Keep your toenails short and, before a long descent, check that your lacing is tight enough to prevent your foot from sliding forward inside the boot.

Buying tips / how do you try your boots on?

Some Decathlon stores have a test route. 1. Try on both boots, standing up and wearing the socks you use for hiking. 2. Tighten the laces, taking care to correctly balance the tightening. 3. Check 2 points: - The heel does not come up before the boot when you walk uphill. - The foot does not slide and the toes do not press against the front when going downhill. 4. Try on several sizes and models. Break them in gradually to adapt them to your foot.

Which socks?

A waterproof boot will be less breathable than a non-waterproof boot. Socks like the MH500, MH520, and MH900 with a high or medium upper (adapted to the height of the boot) are therefore preferable for wicking away perspiration and reducing friction.

Optimize the capabilities of your boots: replace your insoles!

The original insole in your boots is designed to accommodate most feet. A change of insole can bring: 1. Improved support: Some soles are preformed or reinforced to better support the arch of the foot. 2. More comfort: The insoles can also provide heat and/or cushioning. 3. Longer life: Restore the support and comfort of your boots by replacing the insole each season.

Lab tests

Further laboratory tests were conducted to test the following elements: attachment of eyelets and webbing, assembly, toxicology, UV resistance, sole and upper component abrasion, accelerated aging.

How should you look after your boots?

- Leave to air-dry. - Remove dry mud with a stiff brush. - For stains, clean with a brush and a little warm water - Leave to dry - Spray with a re-waterproofing agent to restore the water-repellent properties of the upper.

All our boots are tested for initial comfort and comfort in use by hikers from outside Decathlon under the same conditions you find in use. The aim is to test, develop, and confirm the product in the most objective way possible, so you can get maximum enjoyment out of hiking!
