    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. Shoe 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: - torn hooks and eyelets - bonding of the sole - toxicology - UV resistance - abrasion of the sole and of the components of the upper - accelerated aging.
    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.

    • Beware of corroding eyelets!

      01/09/2017
      Paul (United Kingdom)
      Used for 3 to 6 months
      I'm a seasoned hiker and bought these as I like the brand, these would be my second pair but a different style. My first lasted me 10 years before finally having to be replaced due to the sole being warm out because of the mileage covered.

      This pair I believed would do just as well, that's until a month or after purchase the eyelets started to discolour. I thought no more about it. Then the plating started to come off and the metal rusted. This is with only being caught in light showers during the summer months, so no real test of harsh weather conditions. So now the lower 4 rows are rusted and quite abrasive, in turn frying the laces.
      Returns policy submitted (212131), but told I have to send them back in original box! I didn't expect them to fail, so no original packaging!

      Used for 3 to 6 months
      I've tried many other more expensive hiking shoes and none compare to the comfort of this one. It's very well padded in all the right places, even for my slightly wider than normal feet. I didn't have to 'break them in' - just put them on and started hiking as if they were made especially for my feet! Very happy with this product.
    • Comfortable, classic look . Lasted 9 hard months

      Used for 7 to 12 months
      Bought these in July last year. They took me on a 22km rugged clime with a pack in Norway in the first week. No problems. I hike about 10-30 km a week year round, more in summer. No blisters, never wet, great traction, warm but not horrible in hot weather. I took them about 25km in a day at Petra in 35°C. Yesterday however, one of the riveted lace loops pulled out of the leather while I was tieing them in the airport... but hey... for
