Product feature
  1. Crosscontact sole
    We designed the sole based on long research at our laboratories, combined with a specific rubber formulation to offer the best compromise between grip and traction. The Forclaz 500 Helium sole is designed to offer better grip than traction. Definition > Traction: prevents slipping on soft ground (muddy or dry). Grip: not slipping on hard ground (wet or dry).
  2. Purchasing tips
    Try on both shoes, standing up, with the socks worn for hiking. Try on several styles 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.
  3. 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: keep your toenails short and before any descent, check that your lacing will prevent your foot from sliding forwards towards the front of the shoe.
  4. Field Test
    All our shoes undergo use and comfort tests carried out by users who represent the target market in conditions identical to those found in typical use. Our Field Test Missions team up the product manager with people who aren't affiliated with QUECHUA, to test, improve, and validate our products.

  • Tear after 1 year not extensive use

    The product is overall made of good quality materials, but it teared down. For this price it does not worth it.

    Good price, but not waterproof! Although wider than Salmon, I have to stretched them for over a week and they still give me blisters to start with. I do have wide feet, "H" according to Clarks, so no great surprise. Last pair were great for 7 out of 8 months, around 3000 miles, walking mostly on pavements.
  • The best trail shoes ever!

    Actually a great shoe for men and women alike.....These are the best trail shoes that I have ever worn. I hike through grass, mud rocks, hard terrain and soft...they fit like a glove and have so much support and grip, even when running on the trails. If I wade through water in them, or throw them in for a quick wash, they dry easily . I loved them so much, I’m on my second pair...but it took ages for me to need a second pair as they lasted so long despite being worn constantly. Ill be sticking with these for as long as they make them.

    Can't complain about the performance as these shoes have performed well enough in the field (though it's worth mentioning I only walk occasionally in the less than arduous low country of the New Forest); however the mesh on the top of the shoes is fraying quite badly and the footbeds split on one of the pair after less than a year. The two year warranty seems a little optimistic.
