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, 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 100 High boot is 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.
6
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.

Maintenance tips

While it will not damage the leather, it will change the aspect of your boots. Re-waterproof regularly using specific spray products for synthetics.

My daughter loves these boots. She found them very comfortable from wearing them for the first time.
Comfortable fit, attractive styling
So lightweight and comfortable!
Decathlon comes up trumps again! Fantastic customer service in store at Poole, friendly personal attention and suggestions on suitable boots for walking. They are so lightweight and no breaking in needed.
Fantastic and reliable
Used for 7 to 12 months
Very comfortable, didn't have to break them in. Wore them whilst hiking in New Zealand. Stayed warm and dry in torrential rain and snow conditions. Unfortunately torrential rain caused valley to flood and very quickly needed to get out by wading through a river. Needed proper waders/wellingtons (shin high water) but they dried in our van within a day or two and got me safely out of trouble! No smell and have worn again since this, still working perfectly even after all the abuse.
Comfortable, good quality, dry

These are very comfortable boots with good soles and ideal for long walks. I spray mine with Quecha waterproofer and find my feet stay dry in normal / wet conditions. This is the second time I have bought these boots and I do a lot of walking in them. Good value for money.
Comfortable straight away - no breaking in needed
A half size larger might be needed for wide feet
Perfect boots for my 4 day trek

Very comfortable to wear and kept my feet nice and warm and dry. Good value for money.
Very comfortable
Annoying and painful
Used for 1 week or less
First of all I wanted the old model Forclaz 500 as they were great. Instead because these superseded the last model I got these drab looking things thinking they would be just as good if not better. Unfortunately they are nothing like the previous model. First of all after just one 5 mile walk they started to smell. No its not my feet its the shoes, they didn't get wet or anything but they smell damp (but they aren't). The soft neck that supports your ankle grips your socks and pulls them down with each step. Give it a few hundred yards and you are pulling up your socks yet again (I tore two pair of socks trying to pull them up in frustration). The worst part though is the fact that they are incredibly painful, at least the left boot was which may mean I got a dodgy pair but then that goes against quality control doesn't it?! Anyhoo... the left boot always hurt my little toe, I gave it months of long walks everyday thinking it just needed breaking in, instead it got worse and nearly ended up breaking my toe! Im still in pain now! Where the boot creases it closes right in on my toes and presses down with so much force (because the sides are reinforced) that its like someone placing an iron bar across your toes and then standing on it with every step you take. Unfortunately I am far from impressed with these boots and have actually thrown them away after only 3 months! Bring back the old Grey and Blue model.
Not much, the last model 500 was MUCH better
A lot...

For the price there great. I've just started hill walking properly this year, so don't want to spend a vast amount on very technical boots. These have done great so far. Grippy and secure on boulders, plenty of support round the ankles. Waterproof through the boggy bits. Couldn't ask for better at this price.
good comfortable fit, grippy and waterproof
not sure how long they last
