    Excellent shoes. Used it on snow and ice . Keeps your feet warm and very good grip. Would strongly recommend for cold climates and hiking. Very light and comfortable too. Value for money. Go for it :-)

    Very comfortable boots but the sole isn't up to it
    Comfortable Significant wear to the soles in just 4 weeks use.

    I had the equivalent pair of boots bought many years ago in France and have been delighted with them. When after 6 years or so hard work every summer in the alps the time came to replace them, I went for the same boot, well, its current equivalent. They were just as comfortable, but after 2 weeks walking in the alps this summer and two weeks in the Ardèche this month, the soles are already shewing serious signs of wear to the treads, which are much softer and less deep than my previous boot. Disappointed. I'm going to be lucky to get a year's use out of them.

    Brand's answer :

    Thanks for your feedback on the Forclaz 500 boot, I will pass your comments about the wear of the sole on to the Product Manager. Please drop back into your local store where a member of the team will be able to find a suitable solution for you. If you are still searching for a boot I would recommend the Forclaz 600: http://www.decathlon.co.uk/forclaz-600-high-mens-waterproof-walking-boots-brown-id_8343092.html.Chris Allen UK Market Manager DECATHLON

Tips

Care instructions
Use the brush and/or sponge to clean the shoe and remove dirt or mud residue. Always brush in the same direction to give nubuck its original look. The use of cream or waterproof grease on split leather is not recommended. While it will not damage the leather, it will change the look of your shoe.
Storage Tips
Store in a dark, dry and well-ventilated place.
Restricted use
Not suitable for mountaineering.

Features

Footwear waterproofing test.
Tested both in the lab and real-world usage, NOVADRY®-equipped footwear guarantees optimum waterproofing 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.
3 levels of waterproofing.
During the waterproofing test, we test 3 levels of waterproofing: 2000 flexes (around 2 hours of walking), 4000 flexes (around 4 hours of walking) and 8000 flexes (around 8 hours of walking). Of course, after this test or in use, the shoe regains its original waterproofing once dry.
Shoe waterproofing level.
The FORCLAZ 500 High boot is waterproof for 8000 flexes.
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.
