TECHNICAL INFORMATIONS

BUYING TIPS / HOW DO YOU TRY YOUR BOOTS ON?

Some Decathlon stores have a test route.



1. Try on both shoes, standing up, with the socks worn for hiking.

2. Tighten the laces, taking care to correctly balance the tightening.

3. Check two points:

- the heel does not come up before the shoe when you walk uphill.

- the foot does not slide and the toes do not press against the front when going downhill.

4. Try on several sizes and models.



Break them in gradually to adapt them to your foot.

How should you look after your shoes?

- Leave to air dry.

- Remove dry mud with a stiff brush.

- Clean marks using a brush and some warm water

- Leave to dry

- Spray with a re-waterproofing product to restore the water-resistance to the upper.

Making waterproofing last longer

To keep your feet dry, we advise you to use a waterproof gaiter or mini-gaiter to protect the top of your boots and prevent water, pebbles and sand from getting in.



We advise re-waterproofing your boots twice a year using a re-waterproofing agent (search for ‘waterproofing’ on our Decathlon website) which will help you restore the original water-repellent qualities and help prevent stains on the outside.

Optimise the capabilities of your boots: replace your insoles!

The original insole in your shoes is designed to accommodate most feet. A change of insole can bring:

1. Improved support: some soles are preformed or reinforced to better support the arch of the foot.

2. More comfort: the insoles can also provide heat and/or cushioning.

3. Longer life: restore the support and comfort of your shoes by replacing the insole each season.

SOLE WITH GRIP

The grip of our soles is certified. To be awarded certification, the boots must pass laboratory tests to assess the grip rate on different surfaces (Smooth, Rugged, Dry, Wet). To validate these tests, we assess the quality of our soles in the field, the mountains, by a panel of representative testers over 500 km.

Waterproofing test

In a laboratory, the shoe is immersed in water to mid-height on a mechanical arm that flexes to simulates a number of steps. With this test we can determine a time and number of km that the boot can walk while staying dry. Then we confirm in the field or under the rain, that the shoe meets its promises.

WHAT IS YOUR HIKING FREQUENCY AND INTENSITY?

We have classified our products in terms of performance and features for 3 levels of Mountain Walking:

- occasional: about 10 hikes per year of about 3 to 4 hours in length, covering less than 10km and less than 700m in elevation gain.

- Regular: about 20 outings per year. 4 to 6 hours, 10 to 20 km, 700 to 1200m of elevation gain per outing.

- Intensive: more than 20 times a year. More than 6 hours, more than 20 km, 1200 to 2000m of elevation gain per outing.

Which size should I select?

The most important thing is to try on several sizes and styles of boots to find the one most suited to you!

You can take a size above your usual one to prevent the toes from bumping into the toe box when going downhill, provided the foot is properly supported to avoid friction.

Tip: keep your toenails short and, before a long descent, check that your lacing is tight enough to prevent your foot from sliding forwards inside the boot.

Which socks?

A waterproof shoe will be less breathable than a non-waterproof shoe. Socks like the MH500, MH520 and MH900 with a high or medium upper (adapted to the height of the boot) are therefore preferable for wicking away perspiration and reducing friction.
