Product feature
  1. Footwear waterproofing test.
    Tested in laboratory and in use, these shoes, equipped with a Waterproof membrane, will ensure optimal impermeability and breathability. 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, half immersed in water so we can test that the inside remains perfectly dry.
  2. 3 levels of waterproofing.
    In our waterproofing tests, we test 3 levels of waterproofing: 2000 flexions (approximately 4 km walk) 4000 flexions (approximately 8 km walk) 8000 flexions (approximately 16 km walk). Of course, after this test or in use, the shoe regains its original waterproofing once dry.
  3. Boot waterproofing level.
    The TREK 500 hoe is validated on the impermeability test in 8000 flexions or 16 km walk in water up to mid-upper.
  4. Lab tests
    Laboratory tests were conducted to test the following elements: - attachment of eyelets and webbing, - sole assembly, - toxicology, - UV resistance, - sole and upper component abrasion, - accelerated ageing.
  5. Care instructions
    Use a brush and/or a sponge to clean the shoe and remove dirt or mud residue. Then, air dry away from a heat source. Finish with a nourishing cream to keep good leather flexibility and extend the lifespan of the shoe.
  6. 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 you shoes during your first few hiking trips to break them in.

  • Golf ball sized blisters

    Kayley (United Kingdom)
    Used for 2 to 8 weeks
    My husband bought these to do a 32 mile charity walk and his feet were shredded by the end of it. He bought a size larger as recommended in store and wore gel insoles but said there was no cushioning around the heel and sole and even walking them in for 3 weeks before hand didn't break them in as the material is so tough. He has an even bigger walk to do at the end of the month and putting these shoes on is filling him with dread. Not what we expected for a £70 pair of boots.
  • Quality boot for everyday use

    Just taken delivery of my 2nd pair of these boots, due to wearing out previous ones. Over about a 15 year period I've tried sooo many different manufactures of boots, ranging from expensive to entry level. Leather and fabric all of which have failed miserably, they all split on the crease across the top of the toes. This boot didn't. just the tread has worn away making them not suitable for hill walking. The boots lasted me over 2 years and in the region of 2,500 walking miles over rugged terrain + beach and salt water. Think I only treated them a couple of times to a wash/polish/water repelant and still waterproof. Really comfy and light weight these boots are the real deal and at an amazing price, lets hope the 2nd pair live up to pair 1.

  • Very comfortable however not waterproof

    Used for More than 1 year
    I have owned these boots for almost 18 months and I must say they are very comfortable. However this weekend I went up Mount Snowden only to find the rain had penetrated the boot, so I was walking with wet feet in snow conditions, not a pleasant experience. Having double checked the specs of the boot, it confirms it is waterproof and comes with a 2 year guarantee. However as I've owned the boots for 18 months now I do not have the receipt. Having called the store where I purchased the boots from, they advised without the receipt they were not willing to do anything. I offered to show proof of purchase via a bank statement of which they reiterated without the receipt nothing would happen. Very disappointed with the quality of the boot and now the customer service. I'm due to go to Iceland tomorrow and now in a position where I have to buy another pair of boots. Prior to this weekends experience these boots would have scored a 5* rating.
