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.

Response of the brand
Hello Alok Kumar,

Thanks for your feedback on the Arpenaz 100 Mid Hiking boots. I apologize for the inconvenience caused to you.

Just to give you an idea on the product, the Arpenaz series of Quechua is designed for beginners who go on hikes in the lowland and thus the features on the product also meet the needs of beginner only. The sole is made of rubber and is soft to give better grip for a beginner, comes with out sole alone, absence of mid sole as an occasional user does not need it. They are not recommended for trekking, and for user like you who treks, I would suggest you to consider our Forclaz series of shoes for trekking.

I would request you to visit any of our store closer to you and get the shoes exchanged/claim a refund. Meanwhile, if you could let me know your usage or level of treks you do, I can suggest you models which will match your requirement from our range.

I stay available if you need any further assistance.

Worth for money
I'm using this shoe for riding and daily use ,Good comfortable,Love it.
Very Bad Investment
Used for 1 week or less
My first trek of this year & already regret about buying this shoes. Not at all recommended for rainy season treks. It is not water proof and slips a lot. If Someone uses this shoes for rainy season might get injured because of this poor grip. Not matching the quality which decathlon claims. Disappointed. I can't use this shoes for monsoon treks now. Feels like I've wasted my money. & I saw so many similar reviews about this product but still the problem remains.

After my trek almost a month, shoe base got detached from upper body. It is torn badly that I wont b able to use again just after using once.
Not Impermeable as claimed and worst quality.

Hi Chaitanya Dhumal,

Thank you for taking time to review the Arpenaz  100 mid Novadry boots. I am sorry for the inconvenience caused to you.

The "Arpenaz" series in Quechua focuses on light use. These boots are designed for half day lowland hiking on easy paths in all weather. For "monsoon" treks where the temperatures are mild and the user is crossing huge streams, rocky terrain and sometimes waterfalls I would recommend the Forclaz 500 fresh shoe.

This option is better in terms of both grip, cushioning and drainage.
The Arpenaz 100 Novadry on the other hand will work really well when you are hiking in the foothills of Himalayas or similar terrain during your half-day hikes.
I stay available if you need any further assistance.

Good comfort, Water Resistant, worth for the value
very comfortable, waterproof shoe at great price
This shoe is great, comfortable and waterproof too. However the waterproofing on right shoe got damaged after 1st hike but i think thats manufacturing defect because the left shoe is still ok. Complained about that to decathlon and they have agreed to ship back the shoe and refund the full amount. And thats something none of the manufacturer in india would do.
Definitely recommend this shoe and other decathlon products to other. You can buy anything with complete peace of mind. I am myself going to buy alot of stuff from here
Truly impermeable

Used for 2 to 8 weeks
Used this extensively during our trip to Iceland. It took everything I threw at it. Did not get a chance to test it in heavy rains but it performed solidly in medium drizzle. We had to splash through ice cold puddles of water at times & my feet were both warm & dry. Solid grip on rocky & gravel terrain & also on grassy surfaces. Wore these for almost 16 hours daily for 11 days without any discomfort. A good pair of socks is all you need to complete this trustworthy footwear.
Tough yet comfortable
None I can think of
