Technical Information

1
Footwear waterproofing test.
The footwear is laboratory and field tested equipped with membrane to ensure optimal 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.
Arpenaz 100 Men's shoes are waterproof for 2000 flexes.
4
Field test.
All our shoes undergo comfort and use tests carried out by users who are representative of our 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 test.
Other laboratory tests are also conducted to approve the quality of the following components: eyelet and strap attachment, sticking, toxicology, UV resistance, wearing of sole and upper components, early wear and tear.
6
What size should I choose?
For hiking, take the size above your usual shoe size to ensure optimum comfort when travelling downhill and to prevent your toes from hitting the end of the shoes. Tip: keep your toenails short and check that your laces stop your foot from sliding to the front of the shoes before you start downhill.
7
Buying guide.
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.

Used for 2 to 8 weeks
I bought these shoes for my first trek. Although the trek company advised the Forclaz 500, I didn't have the budget for that kind of expense. So, I had to go for this one and it didn't disappoint me one bit! Moisture control worked and the comfort levels were decent. Although the traction on these shoes might not be as good as the Forclaz 500/600 but hey, the price needs to be kept in mind here. This one is the best bet for a budget snow trek.
Moisture control, comfort
The sole. Kind of slipped sometimes.
good

Comfortable shoes with Horrible Grip
Used for 3 to 6 months
I have been using these shoes for the past 5 months. They are good to use when the weather is dry. But they have extremely HORRIBLE TRACTION on wet surfaces. I recently had a bad experience while wearing these shoes. While hiking across an easy terrain, my shoes lost all grip on the wet rock I was walking across and I had a very nasty fall. I was lucky enough I quickly recovered before I went tumbling down into the shrubs. And I was not on any difficult terrain. Any smooth surface and these shoes are like roller skates. YOU will FALL. I did slip and slide on wet rocks wearing these shoes but I ignored it as the path was a little inclined but when these shoes lost their grip even on a flat surface, well, there's something wrong with these shoes. One more negative point about these shoes is that even though they are waterproof, if water seeps in, then it stays in. Water doesn't drain out for a long time. If these issues are fixed, I would recommend these shoes else I would return them if possible or get rid of em soon.
flexibility, comfort, lightweight
Horrible traction, no water Drainage,
Response of the brand
Hi Nikhil,

Thank you for your feedback on the Arpenaz 100 Mid Boots. I am sorry to hear that the shoes disappointed you on more than one occasion.
I have provided your feedback to our product engineers and you would be happy to hear that they are almost done with the development of a new range of hiking boots which will be coming out in the next few months. This new range is equipped with a superior sole for enhanced grip.

With regards to water drainage, all boots that will have a waterproof membrane will by nature find this issue of water not draining because of the same waterproof membrane.
I recommend taking the laces and insoles out and putting the boots in shade to dry. You can also stuff newspaper inside the boots and replace newspaper as and when required.
To avoid water getting entry in the future you can also look at gaiters along with waterproof over pants. This does not seal the boots but definitely restricts the water entry to a great extend. This is how I keep water out of my boots during hikes in rainy weather. If I am crossing streams which are deep then I just take the boots off as nothing works in those conditions.
Also thanks to our customer satisfaction policy, you can get your boots exchanged at any of our Decathlon stores.

Please feel free to get in touch with me in case of any further queries.

Many thanks and regards,

Base detached from shoe
Used for 2 to 8 weeks
After 8 weeks of hiking the base is slowly detaching from body of the shoe. Please note that I used these shoes only on Saturdays for approximately only 2 hours and not everyday. I clean them according to what decathlon had suggested and maintain my shoes properly. It is sad to see these comfortable shoes in bad condition. If it can be repaired or replaced please let me know. I bought these shoes on August through snapdeal.
Thank you
Comfortable
