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 500 Warm boot is waterproof for 8000 flexes.
4
SNOWCONTACT technology.
SNOWCONTACT soles are made using a special component. Designs are optimised to provide excellent all-terrain grip and maximal traction all winter long. SNOWCONTACT soles are more effective than traditional soles on snow.
5
Field tests.
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.
6
Measurement of the boots' thermal insulation.
It used to be impossible to tell the exact temperature down to which your shoes would protect you. Now it can be done: the temperature limits for use are shown on your Quechua shoes. Using cold sensing tests while hiking and in the lab with a panel of customers, we measured the thermal resistance of our shoes while active and at rest. We take into account the differences in sensing cold between men and women.
7
Lab tests.
Laboratory tests were conducted to test the following elements: attachment of eyelets and webbing, assembly, toxicology, UV resistance, sole and upper component abrasion, accelerated ageing.

Can't find my size
I tried buying these shoes today from the Ansal Plaza store but size 8.5 and 9 were not available. I would really appreciate it if these sizes were made available at the earliest as I need to use these from mid-december onwards. Thank you.
Fantastic build and quality
EU 43 (8.5) and size 9 not available
Good boots
Used for 1 week or less
The boots are looking good and the built is good. I am confused, why is it mentioned here to buy a size larger than the normal size , is it because of the fit reason or is there any other reason.
Great comfort and warmth
Used for 2 to 8 weeks
I have used the shoes for 2+ weeks now. They fit beautifully wrapping all around the feet. The warm liner is great. I have worn them in 3-8°C without any problem. The sole slightly skid on wet hard surfaces (such as wet concrete or stone), if you are not careful placing your feet. Haven't had the chance to check the waterproofing, so far.

I don't know, why everyone is recommending to get a size bigger. I bought my regular size and they fit nice.
Comfortable enough to use full day
Nothing, so far.
Serves the purpose perfectly
The shoes are absolutely warm. And waterproof too. Looks is also quite fine. But the size you require is one size larger than your original size.
I too am having a problem with the size as after wearing it with socks its getting tighter.
I took the size as I generally use to wear but now I am having a problem wearing it.
I bought it from my nearest store i.e. decathlon howrah and when I went to exchange the same no other sizes were available and they as an exchange were asking me to take a different product. But I was interested in taking the same and am left with no option.
Is there any process that will help me in getting it online...it is available online
Good enough to buy
Used for 1 week or less
I am using this for 1 week. Ordered 1 size larger and it fits perfectly. Well balanced and feels good from the first use. But the actual shoe that came to me is not exactly the same as shown here. Design is slightly different. Novadry. tag is not there, instead 'waterproof' tag is attached. This is the only negative I found so far.
Comfortable, good fit
Novadry tag not there, design not the same.
Response of the brand
Hi Pritam,Thank you for your valuable feedback. I am glad that you found this product useful. As per your advice, I have mentioned in the product page that the user needs to pick one size bigger than his/her normal shoe size. Novadry is the label we use for the waterproofing feature. Since it is difficult for a customer to understand the term, we have decided to replace it with the term "Waterproof".I hope your feedback will help customers make the right choice.At your service,Varun Nair E-Sport Manager DECATHLON

Tyres for your adventurous feet
I had signed up for a Ski Course @Auli,India in February. I was looking for something solid and waterproof when i came across these @Decathlon store in Thane. I quite liked the build of the shoe and decided to go for it. I don't regret it . In fact ; it was a very good decision . Turned out snowfall was less this year. So we had to climb further (roughly to the equivalent of 90 floors a day uphill ) on steep mountains to reach the ski slopes. On the way we had patches covered with sleet , slush , boilerplates & mud (not to mention dung). Both uphill & downhill , not once did I feel I was out of control or the surface would be too slippery to step on. Yea. They are also water proof. As it says on their label. A must have if you're a frequent trekker
Best £40 spent on boots
Used for 2 to 8 weeks
Bought these on my way out of store as the boots I'd gone in to buy were unavailable in my size. My Brashers needed urgently replacing. Decided to buy just to keep me temporarily in waterproof winter walking boots. They did not need breaking in, so light hardly know I'm wearing them, completely waterproof. Do about 4 miles across fields every day walking the dog. Will buy again when I need replacement.
Comfortable, warm, did not need breaking in.

Value for money
Used for 2 to 8 weeks
I walked in these boots from snow to mountains without getting socks wet, these were very comfortable and never smelt after all this.
Comfortable, waterproof verified, warm
