    Disappointing: Fabric worn through

    Found these an excellent fit and very comfortable. However, whilst they have been worn extensively through the winter it is disappointing that the fabric parts at the front and side have deteriorated badly and worn through. All other component parts have worn well. Perhaps for a walking boot, the wrong material has been used.

    Brand's answer :

    Hi Benedict,

    I am sorry to hear that you have had issues with the Forclaz 500 helium hiking shoes. I have exactly the same pair and I pretty much wear them every day (admittedly round work for about 5 miles a day and use them out and about also) and I have not had any problems with them. I have found them to be a comfortable and reliable pair of shoes.

    If you pop back in to your local store and you can either get them replaced or get a refund. I am hoping that this is a one off experience and would recommend giving them another go.

    Comfortable and great value
    Lightweight (compared to boot), durable. None yet

    I bought these over a pair of boots as they are more suited to the type of walking that I am doing. On the foot they feel like a beefy trail running shoe, as you might expect.

    I've yet to give them a serious test but after a couple of months of use they still look virtually brand new so I expect them to be tough.

    The lacing system is secure and they are pretty weatherproof, despite not having a waterproof membrane. As a result they can get quite warm.

Features

CrossContact sole
The design of the soles has been the subject of extensive research in our laboratories, combined with a specific rubber formulation to offer the best compromise between grip and traction. The design of the sole of the Forclaz 500 Helium will offer more traction than grip. Definition > Grip: not slipping on loose ground (loamy or dry). Grip: not slipping on hard ground (wet or dry).
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.
Which size should I select?
When taking up hiking, do not hesitate to take a size above your usual shoe size to guarantee an optimal comfort when walking downhill and to avoid your toes rubbing the tops of the shoe. Tip: Before any descent, make sure your nails are cut and check that your laces are tighten to prevent your foot from sliding forward in the shoe.
