    Product feature
    1. Crosscontact sole
      The sole design is the product of a lengthy research and development process conducted in our laboratories, combined with a special rubber formulation to optimise grip and traction. Given the range of different needs, we are always seeking the best compromise for walking on both wet and dry terrain.
    2. Waterproofing test
      Footwear waterproofing test: these boots, which have been tested in the laboratory and the field, have a breathable, waterproof membrane for optimum protection in the rain. First, the boot is immersed in water with pressurised air inside to check that no bubbles form on the surface. 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 4 hours of walking), 4000 flexes (around 8 hours of walking) and 8000 flexes (around 16 hours of walking). Of course, after this test or in use, the shoe regains its original waterproofing once dry. The MH100 Mid waterproof boot passed the test involving 4000 flexes.
    4. Prolonging the waterproof properties
      A shoe's waterproofing is often undermined by water getting in from the top of the shoe. To keep your feet dry for longer, we recommend wearing waterproof gaiters or mini-gaiters to protect the top part of the boots and prevent water, pebbles, sand, etc. from getting inside. To restore the original water repellent properties and prevent staining the outer surface, spray with a waterproof spray several times per year.
    5. Buying tips
      For hiking, try taking one shoe size up from your usual to ensure optimum comfort when going downhill and to prevent your toes from hitting the toe box. Tip: nails must be cut short, and before descending, check that the laces stop the foot from slipping forward to the front of the boot.
    6. What shoe size should I choose?
      For hiking, try taking one shoe size up from your usual to ensure optimum comfort when going downhill and to prevent your toes from hitting the toe box. Tip: before any descent, make sure that your toe nails are clipped and that your laces are tightened so that your feet cannot slide forwards in the boot.
    7. Field test
      All our boots are tested in real-life conditions by testers who are representative of the target customer to ensure that they fit properly and are comfortable in use. Our Missions Tests link the product manager up with people who are not affiliated to Quechua to test, develop and approve the products.
    8. Laboratory Testing
      Other laboratory tests are also conducted to pass the following: tearing resistance of the eyelets and straps, resistance of adhesives, toxicology, UV resistance, to abrasion of the outsole and upper components, accelerated ageing.

    • Great first hiking shoe

      17/04/2018
      Nick (United Kingdom)
      Used for 2 to 8 weeks
      Bought these to walk distance in and keep my feet dry and warm, instead of buying Wellies. These are a cracking shoe. I had to fish my 2 year old out of a stream on the first day of wearing and the boots are completely waterproof up to the first metal eyelet. Very Impressed. I continued walking in the stream just because I could, no other reason. Great fit, bargain price.
    • Uncomfortable Boot

      Always bought decathlon brand for hiking, on this occasion though i find one of the boots uncomfortable as it squeeks (clip clop noise) on one of the boots and doesnt appear to be gripping my heel correctly. This effects my walking gait and find that my other shoe is compensanting for this action.
    • Not waterproof

      These shoes are probably good for hiking but definitely not waterproof as my toes got wet after just walking 30 minutes in the rain.

      Great value found them better than a lot of the dearest brands I have used . Waterproof though only used them about 5 times but 3 times in heavy show and once in snow melt and even good when crossing to small streams . If your not a brand junkie and I usealy am try them at the price I have found the great. I did put in gel insoles as I like a bit more arch support .

      The sizing on these was spot on which is amazing (UK size 8), usually they are far to small in the width which is why I have gave them moderately wide vote. They have a nice softer feel about them when walking on road but not sure how this would translate for off road walking. The price is amazing for a boot of this quality though not had them long.
