    Product feature
    1. Footwear waterproofing test.
      Tested both in the lab and real-world usage, NOVADRY®-equipped footwear guarantees optimum waterproofing and breathability. First, the shoe is immersed in water while internal air pressure is applied to check that no bubbles form on the surface of the footwear. Next, shoes are fitted to a mechanical arm that simulates walking and half immersed in water so we can test that the inside remains perfectly dry.
    2. 3 levels of waterproofing.
      During the waterproofing test, we test 3 levels of waterproofing: 2000 flexes (around 2 hours of walking), 4000 flexes (around 4 hours of walking) and 8000 flexes (around 8 hours of walking). Of course, after this test or in use, the shoe regains its original waterproofing once dry.
    3. Shoe waterproofing level.
      The Forclaz 500 Men's boots are waterproof for 4000 flexes.
    4. Field tests.
      All our shoes undergo use and comfort tests carried out by users who represent the target market in conditions identical to those found in typical use. Our Field Test Missions team up the product manager with people who aren't affiliated with QUECHUA, to test, improve, and validate our products.
    5. Laboratory tests.
      Other laboratory tests are also conducted to approve the quality of the following components: attachment of eyelets and webbing, assembly, toxicology, UV resistance, sole and upper component abrasion, accelerated ageing.
      Try on both shoes, standing up, with the socks worn for hiking. Try on several models or sizes if necessary. Check two comfort points: the base of the heel and the front part of the foot going down. Avoid all pressure points when trying them on. Don't hesitate to walk around the store. Gradually start using you shoes during your first few hiking trips to break them in.

    • Brilliant shoes

      Lakshman (India)
      Used for 7 to 12 months
      Used it for Himalayan winter trek during snowfall and it works wonders. You should understand one thing that no matter what shoe you wear, you WILL slip on ice. So apart from that, it does what it says. Few batchmates had forclaz 100 and they were fine too. But this 500 was the most common and all 500 series users manage to summit the Kedarkantha mountain ;)
      Excellent grip, waterproof at its best
      None. Cost maybe?
    • Not Good for trekking in snow and chill climate

      Sriramthilak (India)
      Used for 7 to 12 months
      I bought this shoes 4 months before. It really works well in normal climatic conditions. Light weight and perfect durability. I felt little bit slippery while trekking in wet climate. Also I feel very chill in my toes and gripping problem in snow trekking. Actually I bought this for my Base Camp trek which is due on Sep 30th, so little bit worried whether it will work properly in that climate. If it is possible means I am ready to change it to Forclaz 600 by paying extra cost. Other than that it's really nice product from decathlon.
    • Excellent product

      Arindam (India)
      Used for 2 to 8 weeks
      Bought this product for snow trek. Really worked good. Very comfortable and light weight. Gripping is wonderful and also the Nova dry features.

    • The shoes are good but some improvements needed

      Parikshet (India)
      Used for 2 to 8 weeks
      The shoes are completely waterproof and withstood the test of Laddakh in August. They have a good grip and did not slip on river beds, etc.

      One major shortcomings that I found is that the front of the foot tends to get pushed forwards while one is walking while wearing the shoe. This can create problems in comfort, etc . I had a very bad experience while descending mountain slopes using these shoes.
    • Perfect for Hiking.

      Tamaghna (India)
      Used for 2 to 8 weeks
      The product is very good. But very slippy in wet condition. Otherwise a good choice for hiking.
