    Highly recommended

    Very good shoes, I did a very hard trek in Indonesia with them and they are very comfy and resistant. No pain even when wearing them for the first time

    Nice blue boots
    Good sole. A bit heavy.

    Nice blue colour. Made me quick in Snowdonia. Much ahead of my slow husband. Good ankle support. A bit too serious for a Sunday stroll. A bit too hot for September weather.

    Forclaz 500 - sole came off midway in a trek
    I'll give it a 5/10 for looks. Sole can come off. Poor grip on rocks.

    The sole of my Forclaz 500 came off midway in a trek - my shoes are only 4 months old. It is a hiker's worst nightmare come true.
    It is waterproof for sometime, waterstarts to leak in after 20/30 minutes in a rain.
    It slips/ skids big time on wet rocks. It has a decent grip on muddy surfaces. All in all, poor show, a let down for treks.

Features

Footwear waterproofing test.
Tested both in the lab and real-world usage, NOVADRY®-equipped footwear guarantees optimum waterproofing and breathability. Our Field Test Missions team up the product manager with people who aren't affiliated with QUECHUA, to test, improve, and validate our products.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.
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.
