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 and 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 Men's boots are 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.

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 you shoes during your first few hiking trips to break them in.

Not a good grip on wet surface
Used for 7 to 12 months
Hi, I had purchased this product in July/August (dont remember the exact month) 2016 and used it for 2 himalayan treks. The grip of the shoe is not great on the wet/slippery surface unlike my earlier shoe which had vibram sole. Same problem was faced by my fellow trekkers too.
Response of the brand
Hello Bharat,

Thank you for your feedback on the Forclaz 100 Hiking Shoes. This shoe is designed for day long hiking in the mountains, and it is not recommended to use for trekking as it doesn't provide the support and grip required for several days trek. For trekking, we suggest the Forclaz 500 and 600 Shoes which comes with the cross contact sole. Vibram soles were earlier used in our trekking shoes and not for Hiking shoes. If you are looking specifically for Vibram sole, we will have Forclaz 700 shoe arriving in our stores towards October this year.

However, I will forward your feedback to our product development team. Hope this information helps you to choose the right shoe for your sport.

Thanks,

Varun NAIR DECATHLON

The shoes are of very good quality, premium looking and sturdy build. The grip in rough terrains of the trek are very tight, giving you confidence. The ankle support is very important in uneven surfaces and it does its job well. The shoes are flexible enough for any kind of rough and uneven surface, and waterproof to keep the moisture out.
Good quality shoes for high altitude rough terrain

Response of the brand
Hi Rijul,

Thank you for your feedback on the Forclaz 100 hiking boots.
Please note, we do not recommend these boots for trekking. The Forclaz 100 boots are designed for day-long mountain hikes on easy paths in all weather conditions.
For trekking we suggest the Forclaz 500 or 600 range of boots.
Like everything else from Decathlon, these boots also come with a minimum warranty of 2 years on manufacturing faults and defects. However, improper usage, user error and wear&tear is not a part of this warranty.
Though I suggest you take your boots to Mohali store for inspection and the store team will be able to help you out with a refund or an exchange should your boots are in warranty.

I am available in case you have any further queries.

Many thanks and regards,

Ravindra Charan

Bad shoes if you are flatfoot
Used for 1 week or less
I bought this shoe in a Decathlon showroom. It looked comfortable when I tried there but after using it for two days both my foot really hurts bad. The main problem is the shoe has a arch shape inside and I am flatfoot where both my foot do not support arch. I am not sure if it could be returned as I have already used it for couple of days. I bought it for Rs.4000 and now I dread to wear and walk. I would never go hiking with this shoes as it would torture my foot. Do not buy if you are flat foot. My 4K is gone in the drain now.
Waterproof, Looks nice
Vey slippery on granite floor with water, Heavy
It's damn good

I'm quite pleased with the product. However the tongue needs to improve such that it fits properly when the laces are tied through the last set of eyelets.
The get up, soles, shoe laces & eyelets are good
Tongue needs to improve, not fitting properly.
good affordable and sturdy shoes

I needed a good pair of trekking shoes with high ankle. As I m new to trekking so didn't want to spend much money. I researched for few days on net and decided for Quechua. As much as I have used until now m satisfied but not totally because of its poor ventilation and not great heel support.
cushioning around ankle and grip
not great heel support and poor ventilation
