    Comfort, lightweight, fit, durable, crafted None

    If you want a great walking boot you've just found it. You'll never look back. The best walking boot that I have ever bought. Incredible value for money.

    Great boots
    fit; price; waterproof Nothing

    I don't normally buy boots at this price because I didn't use to walk so much, however walking more demanded a better boot.
    I have now discovered, over the last 3 months, how much I have missed out.
    My walks are usually in the 8-10 mile range with occasional longer hikes in the Peak district or Staffordshire moorlands.
    These boots are very comfortable, very dry and provide good traction.
    Well worth the money and highly recommended.

    Really good boots
    Comfort, waterproof, grip Sole could be stiffer but not an issue really.

    I have been using these boots for a while now and can't find fault with them. They are comfy from first use and are waterproof. For the money I do not think you can get a better boot.

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.


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 submerged in water while internal air pressure is applied to check that no bubbles form on the surface of the footwear. Then, these are placed, half submerged, on a mechanical arm simulating walking, where it is checked that the interior of the shoe remains perfectly dry.
3 levels of waterproofing.
During the impermeability test, 3 levels of impermeability are tested: 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.
Shoe waterproofing level.
The TREK 500 hoe is validated on the impermeability test in 8000 flexions or 16km walk in water up to mid-upper.
Lab tests
Laboratory tests were conducted to test the following elements: - wrenching of hooks and eyelets - joining of the sole - toxicology - resistance to UV - abrasion of the sole and upper components - accelerated ageing.
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.
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 your shoes during your first few hiking trips to break in them.
