    Product feature
    1. Footwear waterproofing test.
      Tested in laboratory and in use, these shoes, equipped with a Waterproof membrane, will ensure optimal impermeability and breathability. First, the shoe is submerged in water while internal air pressure is applied to check that no bubbles form on the surface of the footwear. Then, these are placed, half submerged, on a mechanical arm simulating walking, where it is checked that the interior of the shoe remains perfectly dry.
    2. 3 levels of waterproofing.
      During the impermeability test, 3 levels of impermeability are tested: 2000 flexions (approximately 4 km walk) 4000 flexions (approximately 8 km walk) 8000 flexions (approximately 16 km walk). Of course, after this test or in use, the shoe regains its original waterproofing once dry.
    3. Shoe waterproofing level.
      The TREK 500 hoe is validated on the impermeability test in 8000 flexions or 16km walk in water up to mid-upper.
    4. Lab tests
      Laboratory tests were conducted to test the following elements: - wrenching of hooks and eyelets - joining of the sole - toxicology - resistance to UV - abrasion of the sole and upper components - accelerated ageing.
    5. Care instructions
      Use a brush and/or a sponge to clean the shoe and remove dirt or mud residue. Then, air dry away from a heat source. Finish with a nourishing cream to keep good leather flexibility and extend the lifespan of the shoe.
    6. Buying tips
      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 your shoes during your first few hiking trips to break in them.

    • Great boots

      Steve (United Kingdom)
      Used for 3 to 6 months
      I don't normally buy boots at this price because I didn't use to walk so much, however walking more demanded a better boot.
      I have now discovered, over the last 3 months, how much I have missed out.
      My walks are usually in the 8-10 mile range with occasional longer hikes in the Peak district or Staffordshire moorlands.
      These boots are very comfortable, very dry and provide good traction.
      Well worth the money and highly recommended.
      fit; price; waterproof

    • Really good boots

      I have been using these boots for a while now and can't find fault with them. They are comfy from first use and are waterproof. For the money I do not think you can get a better boot.
      Comfort, waterproof, grip
      Sole could be stiffer but not an issue really.
    • Best shoes I've ever owned

      I bought these shoes just two days before I left on a month long hiking trip to Patagonia (Argentina and Chile) because I heard that I really needed waterproof shoes. I wasn't convinced initially on what boots would give me vs. hiking shoes.

      Now that I have returned from my trip and walked several hundreds of kilometers on them, on glaciers, mountains, in light snow, rain, and sun, I must say that I absolutely love them!

      They didn't need any breaking in and were comfortable to wear from the start. The waterproof coating works very well, I've walked through countless streams and creeks every day and my feet never got wet. You wouldn't even see that the top of the shoe touched any water because the water drops just fell off. (I was showing off the waterproofness of these boots to someone, and she didn't even believe that I stood in water the second before.) I never felt like getting really sweaty feet, so even though the boots is waterproof, it's still breathable.

      The grip is also great, I could stand on a small corner of a stone, touching only a small part of the sole, and still feel like my whole feet had good contact with the ground.

      Would definitely recommend this boot to everyone!
      very comfortable, very waterproof

      I bought these boots 4 months ago before for a weeklong trip to the remote islands of Scotland, with All types of terrain. Before this I decide to wear them in, first trip was all-terrain 6 miles’ hike, they were waterproof ok, but it felt like wearing a pair of clogs, they just did not give, I have skinny feet, however these where extremely tight on me to such an extent I had to loosen them to get the blood flowing again as my feet where freezing, this resulted in a gap at the top that let water in slightly. I then tried them on a 3-mile beach walk, same result, and finally went on my trip i luckily brought my old boots with me as I just could not cope with these after 4 hours. Soles of my feet ached, top of foot was also aching, no blisters though so they fitted OK.
      I think I must have got a dodgy pair of boots as for this price I would have expected so much better and nobody else has reported these issues.
      Waterproof, easy to put on and off.
      Solid sole, tight uppers, no movement

      Before I start I have to say I bought these boots for my wife, so this review is "hers".
      The boots fitted perfectly and took no breaking in to become comfortable, the sole is good and has a good grip, her last pair of boots caused problems on wet ground with lack of traction. She is really pleased with these boots, bear in mind these boots were bought off the internet, we took advantage of the Decathlon "no quibble" return as we live some distance away from the nearest store. I already have a pair of the previous incarnation of these boots and had no hesitation in recommending them to her. They were also half the price of her last pair (which leaked like a sieve and now she only wears them on the dryest of days, the Forclaz boots will be worn in all weather, rain or shine. These are REALLY GOOD BOOTS.
      Good fit and comfortable from the off.
