      Lengthy lab research into the design of the sole, combined with a special rubber formulation which optimises the balance between traction and adhesion. We aim for the best compromise for walking on dry and slippery terrain, knowing that the needs are not the same.

    3. Field test
      All our shoes are tested in comfort and in use by users who represent those, for whom the products are designed, under conditions identical to those that you can find in use. Our "Missions Tests" put the product manager in contact with people who are not affiliated with Quechua to test, develop and validate the products.
    4. Laboratory test
      Other laboratory tests are also conducted to approve the quality of the following components: Arpenaz 100 high Warm shoes are waterproof for 2,000 flexes.
    5. What size should I choose?
      On account of its extremely thin and breathable components, the Forclaz 500 has a large fit. You may need a size below.
    6. 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 boots during your first few hiking trips to break them in.

    • Once Worn in, Great Shoes!

      MOSHE (United Kingdom)
      Used for 7 to 12 months
      Took a while to wear them in from new - I almost gave up on them... But once worn in they have become my shoes of choice for hikes, cycling and even as casual shoes as I find them quite attractive in an understated way. I added "glow" lime stretch laces purchased cheaply from that well-known sports goods store.
    • Fabulous Product

    • Low quality mesh material

      Amit (India)
      Used for 2 to 8 weeks
      I used this shoes for 5 weeks for walking and rubber mesh get tored. Don't buy this brand mesh shoes it's very low quality mesh material. Why Decathlon sales this kind of low quality products to waste customers money.
      Response of the brand
      Hello Amit,

      Thanks for you feedback on the Forclaz 500 Fresh shoes by Quechua. I apologize for the inconvenience caused to you.

      In this situation, there could two reasons,
      1. Smaller size,  usually we recommend to take one size bigger than your usual size for hiking, a finger space at the back when the laces are loose.
      2. Our hiking shoes are designed for users with average width of feet and currently we do not have one for wider feet.

      At Decathlon we work keeping our users and their happiness at the heart of everything we do and to ensure one major part, quality, all our products are tested by users on terrains similar to the one a user will use it on and also under similar laboratory conditions which enables us to assure a 2- year warranty on all our products.

      If you believe your shoe is not due to the 2 cases I mentioned above, I request you to kindly visit any of our stores closer to you and get the shoe exchanged or seek for a refund. I stay available if you need any further assistance with our products or services.

    • Good

      Darpan (India)
      Used for 2 to 8 weeks
      The shoes are really good. Get a good grip, lightweight and very airy. I am yet to check them out during the rainy season. One of the issues i faced was that because a large part of the upper body of the shoe is perforated, a lot of mud gets in and the socks really get soiled. This is especially when the terrain is very muddy.
