    Product feature
    1. 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 immersed in water while internal air pressure is applied to check that no bubbles form on the surface of the footwear. 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.
    2. 3 levels of waterproofing.
      In our waterproofing tests, we test 3 levels of waterproofing: 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.
    3. Boot waterproofing level.
      The TREK 500 hoe is validated on the impermeability test in 8000 flexions or 16 km walk in water up to mid-upper.
    4. Lab tests
      Laboratory tests were conducted to test the following elements: - attachment of eyelets and webbing, - sole assembly, - toxicology, - UV resistance, - sole and upper component abrasion, - accelerated ageing.
    5. 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.
    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 you shoes during your first few hiking trips to break them in.

    • Waterproof and hardy indeed

      Used for 2 to 8 weeks
      I wanted shoes that would be waterproof, and these shoes held on through days of rough motor biking and high-altitude climbing. I had even the misfortune of being caught in a snowstorm at 5000 + m in the night, and these shoes definitely saved me. The only noted disadvantage is the small front end. I had to have soles changed and live through blisters before I could truly enjoy this pair. Also, I had to buy a small size in men's. Why is the women's not available easily? :-/
    • As always, very satisfying

      I used this shoe for my recent stok kangri expedition and the shoe met my expectation. The shoe is little heavy as compare to other brands,but that add on to the durabiltiy. The shoe worked well in the Boulder section and also in the loose scree/moraine. The grip of the shoe is also good. Initially the shoe feels less flexible but once it is breaked atleast 10 days prior you will feel it as a part of your body.

      Used for 3 to 6 months
      The water proofing of shoe is quite good but when it comes to a rocky section the shoe grip is not up to the mark and if you are not walking with extra caution you have a high chance of slipping down.
    • Value for money, functional

      A great product, my Everest base camp trek is at the end of the month so the real review would get updated sometime in October once the boots go to 17500 feet and back

      In less than a month the outer shell started chipping away. Bad Quality. Bad Product. Really bad service from the employees.
      Response of the brand
      Hello Sagar,

      Thank you for sharing your feedback about the Trekking Shoes with us. We are sorry to hear about the unpleasant experience you have had with us.
      Leather shoe cracks could happen due to aging which depends on the storage and maintenance, or it could also have happened due to a manufacturing error from our end. It is not normal for this to happen within a span of just 3 months. I would advise you to bring the shoes to any of our stores so that our team could understand this better and assist you accordingly.

      Hope to see you soon in our store. I remain available for any further queries :)
