Bought these to climb Snowdon in as my previous boots had started to break. Tried them on at my local store and seemed ok. Broke them in walking inside and around my local area before the trip as recommended by staff. However when I started the Snowdon hike I could feel the rocky terrain through the boot, a very worrying sign. My toes were very pinched too even though I bought a size up. Offered no ankle support what’s so ever and the sole grip is poor and I found myself slipping. Now 2 days after my feet are still incredibly sore, And as an active person who runs and hikes regularly this is completely unusual for me and I definitely think it’s the boots. Would not recommend and wished I’d gone for a more known brand.
My wife's small toe was badly blistered by these boots twice. First walk was 2 hours on small hills . Second time was 45 minutes on flat ground. Really dissapointing as she purchased them on recommendation from employee's testimonial in the shop. She was going to purchase Salmon but decided on these. Now we're stuck with boots that are unwearable.
First time out a 12 mile walk and comfortable the whole way.
Comfortable and waterproof
This is my third pair of Forclaz boots and I am very happy with them. Offer good support and good for the type of walking I do, mostly along well defined footpaths and tracks, distances of five to ten miles. Good level of waterproof. They don't chafe.
It was too uncomfortable and when I would to refund it, salesman said me: you should put on and walk many kilometres in your home before putting on outside!!!!! So I’m so disappointed to your shop.
Wife loves these boots, fit like slippers.
I have been going on lengthy walks in lockdown but as the weather was getting wet I decided to upgrade to waterproof boots. These boots seemed comfortable when I tried them in the store but they have caused me terrible pain which forced me to stop going on walks. This is frustrating as it’s one of the few things we can do in lockdown. Let me be clear that I have never suffered from any foot pain and haven’t torn or broken any bones/tendons ever. These boots gave me the worst Achilles heel pain ever (Achilles tendinitis). The pain started gradually and got to the point that I could not get in those boots and walk. I was limping as if I had a fracture. I bought some insoles but this did not make any difference. The minute I stopped wearing and switched to some new balance trainers the pain went away. But it took me various days of rest to get there.
I think these boots are very hard and do not absorb any shock, hard surfaces. They do not offer enough support and have been an absolute waste of money. I would not recommend these buy something else. I used to own the cheaper version of the Quechua ones and they were half the price and much better. The reason I went for these is because these are waterproof.
The laces snag on the eye hooks causing feet to tie together and you fall over!

These boots seemed comfortable when I bought them at the store, and for the first few walks on plain, level tarmac around the city (I was testing them before my hike). Then I went on a 25 km hike that included steep ascents and descents of 700 meters, and even though the shoes held up well during the ascents, they hurt like nobody's business during the descents. Much of the trail was more or less level, with gentle gradients, but after about 2 hours of walking, the front of my feet (the balls under my toes) started hurting, as if the insoles offered no cushioning whatsoever. I could feel rocks, stones, and the texture of everything on the ground. By the time the path started descending steeply, the bones in my feet were so fatigued with pain that I felt like I was walking on knives. For the last few kilometers, I took off the boots and wore flip flops instead, and then I tried walking barefeet on the tarmac road when we reached the city, and even walking barefoot was more comfortable than walking in these shoes! I tried putting in new, better cushioned insoles at one of our stops, but the pain persisted on the remaining days of the trip, so I'm giving up on these shoes. Do NOT buy! The insoles are horribly cheap, flimsy and offer no support or cushioning. I have not tested the waterproof-ness, but the sheer discomfort of these shoes now have me trawling online for a brand new pair (NOT from Decathlon ever again), less than half a year of buying these shoes!
