Bit slippery

Not Really good but not bad

The design of the shoes is not really suitable for my feet (I feel a bit tight on the side) but for the rest is all good.


Boots seem to be to size and very comfortable.....perfect for my muddy dog walks and social hiking

Very comfy but 100% NOT waterproof!!

I bought these boots in August - the main attraction was the fact that they were waterproof. They really are NOT! I have had wet feet for the last few walks I have been on, after simply walking on wet ground and a few puddles. I intend to return them on the basis that they don’t do what they are advertised to do. Such a shame because they are very comfortable.

Good boots

I've been using this bots nearly every day. The boots are very comfortable and the waterproofing is excellent, tried them on several rainy days. Good adherence in all types of grounds and floors.

Great boot such a shame it DOESN’T stay waterproof

In so many ways I’ve been delighted with this boot, it’s comfy, the grip is great BUT THEY ONLY REMAINED WATERPROOF FOR AROUND 6 MONTHS. I’ve tried spraying with waterproof spray multiple times but it makes very limited difference.

A bit heavy

Hi Mag!


The shoes that you bought might be abit heavy from what you mentioned, because it is actually for sturdiness and protect your feet better compared to the rest of the range that We have. What I can suggest is, maybe you would want to check out on MH100 MID WOMEN'S WATERPROOF MOUNTAIN HIKING SHOES - TURQUOISE , which has almost the same technicalities with full cushioning, a protective stone-guard, good support and a waterproof membrane as the MH500 range that you bought, but is slightly lighter.

Feel free to come down to visit any of Our stores, and check out the full range of Hiking shoes that We have! See you around!

Comfortable but not waterproof

I am really disappointed as I purchased these for dog walking/hiking and they are so comfortable, but as with other comments after about 2 months they started to let in water and I get very wet feet daily when we go over the fields. I still wear them when its dry or am on hard surfaces but am having to buy another boot as I need them to be waterproof as I am going out to Borneo early november and will have no where to dry boots and socks!

So far so good.

Nice color, average comfort.

Water Proof function is good!

Bought this for my girl to wear this in Scotland and it's waterproof and we all wear Quechua series mountain walking shoes, our feet all dry and no worry for the feet will wet. Strongly suggest to get one if you going to cold and wet weather.

Additional Product Information


Outer sole of

  • 50% Rubber - Butadiene rubber
  • 50% Ethylene vinyl acetate

Upper of

  • 70% Polyamide
  • 30% Split bovine leather
  • 0% Polyurethane

Lining and sock of

  • 100% Polyester cationic

Outsole with grip

The grip of our soles is certified. To be awarded this certification, the shoes 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, the mountains, and by a panel of representative testers over 310 miles

Waterproofing test

In a laboratory, the shoe is immersed in water to mid height on a mechanical arm that simulates a number of steps. With this test we can determine a time and a number of miles that the shoe can walk while staying dry. - 2,000 bends, about 30 minutes of hiking - 10,000 bends, about 3 hours - 30,000 bends, approximately 8 hours - 50,000 bends, approximately 12 hours Then we confirm that the shoe keeps its promises in use on the ground and in the rain.

Making waterproofing last longer

To keep your feet dry, it is advisable to use waterproof gaiters or mini-gaiters that will protect the top of the shoe from incoming water, but also small stones, sand, etc. We advise you to re-waterproof your shoes twice a year using a waterproofing product (look for "waterproofing" on our Decathlon website) that will help to restore the original water-repellent properties and combat external staining.

Evofit concept

This shoe 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 shoe to perfectly fit the shape of your foot.

Which size should you choose?

The most important thing is to try several sizes and models of shoes to find the best one for you! A size above your usual size can be taken to prevent toes from pressing against the tip when going downhill, provided that the foot is held properly in place to avoid friction. Advice: 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 shoe.

Purchasing advice/how to try on your shoes

Some Decathlon stores are equipped with a test course. 1. Try both shoes on, standing up, wearing the socks you use for hiking. 2. Tighten the laces, taking care to correctly restart the tightening. 3. Check 2 points: - the heel does not take off before the shoe when you walk uphill. - the foot does not slide and the toes do not press onto 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 shoe will be less breathable than a non-waterproof shoe. You should therefore opt for socks like the MH500, MH520 and MH900 with a high or medium upper (adapted to the height of the shoe) to wick away perspiration and reduce friction.

Optimize the capabilities of your shoes: replace your insoles!

The original insole in your shoes 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 shoes by replacing the insole each season.

Laboratory tests

Further laboratory tests are also conducted to validate the following: tearing of eyelets and straps, gluing, toxicology, resistance to UV rays, abrasion of the sole and upper components, accelerated aging.

How should you look after your shoes?

- Leave to air-dry. - Remove dry mud with a stiff brush. - Clean marks using a brush and some warm water - Leave to dry - Spray with a re-waterproofing product to restore the water-resistance to the upper.
