    Product feature
    1. Crosscontact sole
      We researched this sole design extensively in our laboratories, along with a specific rubber formula to optimise grip and traction. We systematically seek the best compromise between the different needs when hiking on muddy or dry terrain.
    2. Waterproofing test
      Footwear waterproofing test: tested in laboratory and actual usage conditions, the shoes are equipped with waterproof and breathable membrane to provide optimal protection from rain. 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. They are half immersed and then placed on a mechanical arm that simulates walking: we then check that the inside of the shoe remains perfectly dry.
    3. Waterproofing level
      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. The Forclaz 100 Waterproof boot passes level of 4000 flexes.
    4. Making waterproofing last longer
      A shoe's waterproofing is often undermined by water getting in from the top of the shoe. Using waterproof gaiters or mini gaiters, it is therefore recommended to keep your feet dry for longer periods by protecting the top part of your shoes and prevent water from getting in as well as pebbles, sand, etc. Use of a re-waterproofing spray is recommended several times per year. This will help your shoes recover their original water-repellent qualities and combat outer stains.
    5. 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 boots during your first few hiking trips to break them in.
    6. Which size should I select?
      When taking up hiking, do not hesitate to take a size above your usual shoe size to guarantee an optimal comfort when walking downhill and to prevent your toes rubbing the tops of the shoe. Tip: Before any descent, make sure your nails are cut and check that your laces are tightened to prevent your foot from sliding forward in the shoe.
    7. Field tests
      All our shoes undergo comfort and use tests carried out by users who are representative of our target market, in conditions identical to those found in typical use. Our "Missions Tests" put the product manager in contact with people who are not affiliated with Quechua to test, develop and validate the products.
    8. Laboratory tests
      Other laboratory tests are also conducted to approve the quality of the following components: attachment of eyelets and straps, fixtures, toxicology, UV resistance, sole and upper component abrasion, advanced ageing.

      Used for 3 to 6 months
      When Decathlon discontinued my favoured Forclaz 500 low,I decided to try these in the hope they would be a credible alternative....oops big mistake!!! Definitely the worst pair of shoes I have purchased from Decathlon,while light comfortable and well made they are lethal on wet rock or stone, absolutely brutal....Beware!!

      The shoe is ideal for walking the dog or low level walks both in the country and town. It is comfortable, waterproof and has a good grip.

      Really comfortable sturdy waking shoe at a great price
    • Too lightweight construction and too narrow

      Used for 1 week or less
      For the price you might not expect much, but there's no point supplying something that is such poor quality. I have a previous model and they lasted well, but these are lighter weight material, narrower and the toe box is also lower. I returned them straight away.
