    Quechua Forclaz 500 men's Waterproof Hiking BOOTS
    Comfortable and Light

    I have very wide feet and have struggled to find a comfortable waterproof walking boot for the winter and these are great, minimal breaking in, good price and well made.

    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. This is not problematic in itself, but it would change the shoe's aesthetic look.
Storage Tips
Store in a dark, dry, and well-ventilated place.
Restricted use
Not suitable for mountaineering.

Features

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 4km walk) 4000 flexions (approximately 8km 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 100 shoe 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.
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 (the heel does not take off or it does so slightly) and the forefoot while going downhill (the toes do not touch the front of the shoe). 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.
Care instructions
Use a brush 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. This is not problematic in itself, but it would change the shoe's aesthetic look.
