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.

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,
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,

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.
