Technical Information

1
Footwear waterproofing test.
Tested both in the lab and real-world usage, NOVADRY®-equipped footwear guarantees optimum waterproofing 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 and half immersed in water so we can test that the inside remains perfectly dry.
2
3 levels of waterproofing.
During the waterproofing test, we test 3 levels of waterproofing: 2000 flexes (around 2 hours of walking), 4000 flexes (around 4 hours of walking) and 8000 flexes (around 8 hours of walking). Of course, after this test or in use, the shoe regains its original waterproofing once dry.
3
Shoe waterproofing level.
The Forclaz 500 Men's boots are waterproof for 4000 flexes.
4
Field tests.
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.
5
Laboratory tests.
Other laboratory tests are also conducted to approve the quality of the following components: attachment of eyelets and webbing, assembly, toxicology, UV resistance, sole and upper component abrasion, 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 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.

Bad shoes if you are flatfoot
Used for 1 week or less
I bought this shoe in a Decathlon showroom. It looked comfortable when I tried there but after using it for two days both my foot really hurts bad. The main problem is the shoe has a arch shape inside and I am flatfoot where both my foot do not support arch. I am not sure if it could be returned as I have already used it for couple of days. I bought it for Rs.4000 and now I dread to wear and walk. I would never go hiking with this shoes as it would torture my foot. Do not buy if you are flat foot. My 4K is gone in the drain now.
Waterproof, Looks nice
Vey slippery on granite floor with water, Heavy
Brilliant shoes
Used for 7 to 12 months
Used it for Himalayan winter trek during snowfall and it works wonders. You should understand one thing that no matter what shoe you wear, you WILL slip on ice. So apart from that, it does what it says. Few batchmates had forclaz 100 and they were fine too. But this 500 was the most common and all 500 series users manage to summit the Kedarkantha mountain ;)
Excellent grip, waterproof at its best
None. Cost maybe?
Not Good for trekking in snow and chill climate
I bought this shoes 4 months before. It really works well in normal climatic conditions. Light weight and perfect durability. I felt little bit slippery while trekking in wet climate. Also I feel very chill in my toes and gripping problem in snow trekking. Actually I bought this for my Base Camp trek which is due on Sep 30th, so little bit worried whether it will work properly in that climate. If it is possible means I am ready to change it to Forclaz 600 by paying extra cost. Other than that it's really nice product from decathlon.
Excellent product

Bought this product for snow trek. Really worked good. Very comfortable and light weight. Gripping is wonderful and also the Nova dry features.

The shoes are good but some improvements needed
The shoes are completely waterproof and withstood the test of Laddakh in August. They have a good grip and did not slip on river beds, etc.

One major shortcomings that I found is that the front of the foot tends to get pushed forwards while one is walking while wearing the shoe. This can create problems in comfort, etc . I had a very bad experience while descending mountain slopes using these shoes.
Perfect for Hiking.

The product is very good. But very slippy in wet condition. Otherwise a good choice for hiking.
Forclaz 500 Good shoe for dry weather !
Used for 3 to 6 months
I have used it on several hikes.
Pros:
1. It is a very comfortable shoe.
2. I did not face any blister issues.
3. Waterproofing is good. No issues in rain.

Cons:
It slips heavily on wet rocks. The grip on rocks is very poor even on light drizzle.

I had owned the older Forclaz 500 (6 years ago). It had a much better grip.
very comfortable
slips like hell on wet rocks.
It's damn good
