This is an absolutely beautiful & comfortable pair of shoes. Used it recently on my trek to the Everest Base Camp. No complaints. Go for it!!
I loved the shoes for normal flat treks... but are extremely slippery on wet rocks. Jad started doing treks near mumbai and one should avoid treks that involve little rock climbing lile kalwatin. I wonder if i can exchange the shoes given that it has been so much time.
I had to buy waterproof shoes for a trip in the himalayas in month of july, I bought these shoes without any second thought. First day was good ,then when rain started,I regretted my decision of buying them ,I could feel the water in the shoes ,walkingI with wet feet was way difficult .anyhow I finished that trek.on next trek I slipped and fell two times ,looked like sole was worn out and had no grip watsoevr.
Just big claims nothing else
Thanks for your valuable time to review the Forclaz 100 shoes by Quechua. I apologize for the inconvenience caused to you.
To give you a small insight on the usage of this product, it is designed for hiking on the mountain at a slight elevation. They offer you good support and protection at this level of usage. If your usage is trekking, I request you kindly to have a look at the range of shoes designed for trekking by Quechua. I attach the link for the Trek 100 shoe (https://www.decathlon.in/p/8319097_quechua-forclaz-500-men-s-high-waterproof-hiking-shoes.html ) for trekking, offers you good grip and cushioning on the mountains on longer durations. Also regarding the water seepage during rain, it is recommended to use a gaiter which stops the water to enter in the shoes from the top when it is raining (Link: https://www.decathlon.in/p/8347880_quechua-forclaz-50-hiking-gaiters.html#/216-200-s_m ).
I would be glad to assist you in picking the right shoe with the right cushioning and grip if you can let me know your usage, in exchange for the shoes you have currently.
I stay available if you need any further assistance with our products or services in the future,
This shoe is very good as described. The waterproofing is very good and works well for 4 Hours. After 4 hours of trek, the socks starts to become wet. I have used this shoe in all sort of terreins viz rocky, muddy, watery etc. and it has done what it said. The only problem is that the tongue of the shoe is weirdly designed and during high showers the water enters from the tongue. The shoe near the shoe has started showing a crease which was very unexpected from Quechua.
Else the shoe is perfect in its budget and works well even on bikes.
The waterproof shoes though very expensive is very godd , i tried it in heavy rains.
I Purchased this shoe just 3 weeks back and went on a short trek for 2 days in monsoon. Grip was pretty bad, so had to put a lot of pressure in leg muscles to avoid slip. Water resistance was also pretty bad, it let in rain water. Overall pretty disappointed with the product. Now I feel like I wasted money for nothing and not sure what should I do with this shoe.
