Technical Information

1
Footwear waterproofing test.
Tested in laboratory and in use, these shoes, equipped with a Waterproof membrane, will ensure optimal impermeability and breathability. First, the shoe is submerged in water while internal air pressure is applied to check that no bubbles form on the surface of the footwear. Then, these are placed, half submerged, on a mechanical arm simulating walking, where it is checked that the interior of the shoe remains perfectly dry.
2
3 levels of waterproofing.
During the impermeability test, 3 levels of impermeability are tested: 2000 flexions (approximately 4 km walk) 4000 flexions (approximately 8 km walk) 8000 flexions (approximately 16 km walk). Of course, after this test or in use, the shoe regains its original waterproofing once dry.
3
Shoe waterproofing level.
The TREK 500 hoe is validated on the impermeability test in 8000 flexions or 16km walk in water up to mid-upper.
4
Lab tests
Laboratory tests were conducted to test the following elements: - wrenching of hooks and eyelets - joining of the sole - toxicology - resistance to UV - abrasion of the sole and upper components - accelerated ageing.
5
Care instructions
Use a brush and/or a sponge to clean the shoe and remove dirt or mud residue. Then, air dry away from a heat source. Finish with a nourishing cream to keep good leather flexibility and extend the lifespan of the shoe.
6
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 your shoes during your first few hiking trips to break in them.
Information / Concept / Technology
Composition
Split nubuck and synthetic leather upper, PU midsole, TPU outsole.

Test
Mid- and high-mountain guides from the ASTER association participate in the development of our hiking footwear in close collaboration with Quechua designers and engineers. Mountain experts wear our boots on hiking trails year-round, these guides thoroughly test our products in all conditions.

Product 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.

Stockage tips
Store in a dark, dry and well-ventilated place.

Maintenance tips
Use the brush and/or sponge to clean the shoe and remove dirt or mud residue. Always brush in the same direction to give nubuck its original look. The use of cream or waterproof grease on split leather is not recommended. While it will not damage the leather, it will change the look of your shoe.

Extremely uncomfortable
Used for 3 to 6 months
I bought these boots 4 months ago before for a weeklong trip to the remote islands of Scotland, with All types of terrain. Before this I decide to wear them in, first trip was all-terrain 6 miles’ hike, they were waterproof ok, but it felt like wearing a pair of clogs, they just did not give, I have skinny feet, however these where extremely tight on me to such an extent I had to loosen them to get the blood flowing again as my feet where freezing, this resulted in a gap at the top that let water in slightly. I then tried them on a 3-mile beach walk, same result, and finally went on my trip i luckily brought my old boots with me as I just could not cope with these after 4 hours. Soles of my feet ached, top of foot was also aching, no blisters though so they fitted OK.
I think I must have got a dodgy pair of boots as for this price I would have expected so much better and nobody else has reported these issues.
Waterproof, easy to put on and off.
Solid sole, tight uppers, no movement
great boots
Used for 3 to 6 months

Before I start I have to say I bought these boots for my wife, so this review is "hers".
The boots fitted perfectly and took no breaking in to become comfortable, the sole is good and has a good grip, her last pair of boots caused problems on wet ground with lack of traction. She is really pleased with these boots, bear in mind these boots were bought off the internet, we took advantage of the Decathlon "no quibble" return as we live some distance away from the nearest store. I already have a pair of the previous incarnation of these boots and had no hesitation in recommending them to her. They were also half the price of her last pair (which leaked like a sieve and now she only wears them on the dryest of days, the Forclaz boots will be worn in all weather, rain or shine. These are REALLY GOOD BOOTS.
Good fit and comfortable from the off.
Fantastic Footwear

Sturdy boots that get a battering and still stay waterproof and comfy. Great on steep and unstable slopes. Stylish too! (Words from my partner!)
Great beginners boots
Used for 2 to 8 weeks
I wore this for the first time last week on an 8 hour long climb to Ben Nevis and they were perfect. No blisters or pain at any point, my feet remained dry and warm throughout the whole hike going through heavy rain, snow and even water crossings. Very comfortable and great grip to all surfaces (gravel, grass, snow)
Comfortable, shock absorption, temperature
These boots are made for walking?
