    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. Shoe 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: - torn hooks and eyelets - bonding of the sole - toxicology - UV resistance - abrasion of the sole and of the components of the upper - accelerated aging.
    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.

    • Reasonable OK product

      20/09/2017
      DEEPAK (India)
      Used for More than 1 year
      Bought it for seven thousand INR. It worked well on first two hikes (5 days and 3 days). But in the third hike, I saw the inside sole tearing off from both sides in the middle. In the last 14 months I have had it, the total no. of days I have worn it is less than a month! I am not sure if the insole should come lose over such limited usage. The shoe is fine and the grip is good, but the tearing off of the insole is a dampener. On op of that, the price is quite expensive. Had this been a 3000 rs. shoe, I would not have made this comment.
    • Beware of corroding eyelets!

      Used for 3 to 6 months
      I'm a seasoned hiker and bought these as I like the brand, these would be my second pair but a different style. My first lasted me 10 years before finally having to be replaced due to the sole being warm out because of the mileage covered.

      This pair I believed would do just as well, that's until a month or after purchase the eyelets started to discolour. I thought no more about it. Then the plating started to come off and the metal rusted. This is with only being caught in light showers during the summer months, so no real test of harsh weather conditions. So now the lower 4 rows are rusted and quite abrasive, in turn frying the laces.
      Returns policy submitted (212131), but told I have to send them back in original box! I didn't expect them to fail, so no original packaging!

    • Overrated shoe with low shelf life

      29/08/2017
      Siddhesh (India)
      Used for More than 2 years
      Although I had purchased the shoe 3 years back I had worn it only twice for trek to Himalayas, the warranty was definitely void as 2 years had passed, as I started training I thought of checking my shoes wrapped up and cushioned in paper, I found the mid soles cracking, when I just tried to test the soles ripped off. The mid sole is thermocol and comes off very easily, decathlon outlets did not help to fix it either, they suggested roadside repair instead. The shelf life is just 2 years beyond that the sole just shreds off like the skin of the snake, this happened with couple of my friends who purchased the same shoe, they were lucky enough to get it replaced in warranty.

      For such a great brand name and high price, shelf life of 2 years is too low, if not replacement decathlon should provide repair and maintenance services at least.
      Response of the brand
      Hello Siddhesh,Thanks for your valuable time to review our Forclaz 600 boot by Quechua. I apologise as the value of the product did not live up to the promise assured.
      To address the issue, the Forclaz 600 boot has an EVA midsole to offer the user with a superior cushioning on the mountains for a longer usage. The challenge to this is the process of hydrolysis( a process where a component absorbs water when it comes in contact and thus there is a peeling off). To overcome this challenge, the current Forclaz 600 (new name: Trek 500) has a catalyst added which controls hydrolysis and thus securing the promise of durability for our trekking products.I apologise again for the inconvenience caused to you, and I request you kindly to visit any of our store closer to you and get this exchanged. It would be great for us if you could use the new Trek 500 boot and give us your valuable feedback. 
      I stay available if you need any further assistance with our products or services in the future.
