    Tolle Farbe, toller Schuh!

    Ich habe auch das Modell in mint, aber bei dieser Farbe konnte ich nicht widerstehen.
    Super Tragekomfort, tolle Dämpfung. Gut geeignet für Städtetouren und Wanderungen. Dank der Sohle mit gutem Halt auch für anspruchsvollere Touren im Sommer geeignet. Bei Wanderungen auf Sardinien war ich die einzige, die nicht weggerutscht ist, selbst auf schwierigem Boden. Ich bin von diesem Modell überzeugt, gerade da ich in anderen Schuhen schnell sehr warme Füße bekomme, hier ist die Belüftung gut.

    Leichte bequeme Wanderschuhe

    Meine absoluten Lieblingswanderschuhe.
    Leicht, atmungsaktiv und bequem. Dazu tolle Sohle mit gtem Halt. War damit auf Sardinien, in Österreich und Deutschland wandern und selbst bei halb-alpinen Touren hatte ich keine Probleme.
    Absolute Empfehlung!

Storage Tips
Store in a well ventilated place away from light and moisture.


Crosscontact sole
We designed the sole based on long research at our laboratories, combined with a specific rubber formulation to offer the best compromise between grip and traction. The design of the FH500 Helium sole gives more adhesion than traction. Definition > Traction: prevents slipping on soft ground (muddy or dry). Grip: not slipping on hard ground (wet or dry).
275 g per shoe in size 6
Purchasing tips
Try on both shoes, standing up, with the socks worn for hiking. Try on several styles 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. Break your shoes in gradually on your first big hike to mould them to your feet.
Buying tips
If you buy your shoes online, try them on (see instructions below) as soon as you receive them. You can return the product or ask your nearest Decathlon store if you are uncertain of the size.
What shoe size do I choose?
For hiking, do try a size about your usual one to ensure optimum comfort when going downhill and to prevent your toes from touching the top of the shoe. Recommendation: keep your toenails short and before any descent, check that your lacing will prevent your foot from sliding forwards towards the front of the shoe.
Field Test
All our shoes undergo use and comfort tests carried out by users who represent the target market in conditions identical to those found in typical use. Our Field Test Missions team up the product manager with people who aren't affiliated with QUECHUA, to test, improve, and validate our products.
Other laboratory tests are also conducted to approve the quality of the following components: tearing eyelets and straps, gluing, toxicology, UV resistance, abrasion resistance of outsole and upper components, accelerated ageing.
