Product feature
  1. Crosscontact sole
    The design of the sole has been the subject of long research at our laboratories, combined with a specific rubber formulation to offer the best compromise between grip and traction. As requirements are not the same, we automatically look for the best compromise to develop on both soft and dry terrain.
  2. Waterproofing test
    Footwear waterproofing test: laboratory- and field-tested, shoes with a breathable, waterproof membrane ensure you have optimum protection from the 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 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 waterproof shoe passed the test involving 4000 flexes.
  4. Prolonging waterproofness
    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. Break your shoes in gradually on your first big hike to mould them to your feet.
  6. What shoe size do I choose?
    For hiking, do try a size about your usual one to ensure optimum comfort when going downhill and to prevent your toes from touching the top of the shoe. Recommendation: 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.

    All our shoes are tested for comfort and use, by testers who are representative of the people the products are designed for, under identical conditions. Our Field Test Missions team up the product manager with people who aren't affiliated with QUECHUA, to test, improve, and validate our products.

  • comfortable from the first step

    Used for 2 to 8 weeks
    I bought these to replace a pair from Sports Direct that had sprung a leak. The Decathlon shoes are definitely waterproof, have great grips and are extremely comfortable. I just put them on and wore them, and they felt like they'd belonged to my feet for a long time. Very good value too!
  • Great shoes, great value. Buying again.

    Used for More than 2 years
    As far as I can tell, these are the same shoes as the pair I bought 2-3 years ago called the Forclaz 100 Low Novadry Brown. Great shoes - extremely comfortable and light & my old pair still look good and work as intended. I want another pair as I use these for more than just walking and my old pair are finally starting to look a little worn.
  • Fantastic

    Very comfortable walking shoes. Excellent price, especially considering that they're waterproof.
  • Nice shoe ...but didnt last well

    Alistair (United Kingdom)
    Used for More than 1 year
    Bought these as lightweight all weather dog walking shoes. Like the weight and grippy soles. However the right shoe showed deterioration along leading edge of toe protector and sole started to part with upper. Culminated yesterday with sole coming away from upper about first 3rd of the shoe. Bought them last July and have been only used daily for walking the dogs. Disappointed as liked the shoe !
  • Repeat purchase

    18 months previous I bought a similar style, wore them nearly every day and they only just fell apart. The longest any shoes have lasted. So I bought another pair
