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 aim for the best compromise for walking on dry and slippery terrain, knowing that the needs are not the same.
  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. 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.
  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 500 waterproof passes the 8000 flexes test.
  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
    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: nails must be cut short, and before descending, check that the laces stop the foot from slipping forward to the front of the shoe.
  6. What size should I choose?
    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: nails must be cut short, and before descending, check that the laces stop the foot from slipping forward to the front of the shoe.

    These boots look good and are comfortable to wear all day however after only a month I now get wet feet when walking across short wet grass.

    Used for 1 week or less
    I bought these for my son last week as he announced 2 days before his Duke of Edinburgh walk that his current boots were too small! I was really concerned that he would suffer without breaking them in, but he reported no rubbing or blisters. Good looking boot that was really excellent value. Too early to comment on the durability, but if it is like everything else I've got from Decathlon this shouldn't be an issue.
