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.

I used these shoes for my Shrikhand Mahadev Yatra and i am very happy with this product,waterproofing is awesome.
In the Picture, it is clearly showing that the Shoe is Forclaz 500 whereas in the Product information, the shoe is declared as Forclaz 100. Please provide the relevant Information.
The Grip of this shoes is not good, salesperson gives so many promises about the product, I have seen practically even other shoes just costing around 1000 to 2000 of other brands was better than this. I did amarnath yatra with my group , they weared normal shoes there grip was better than this and they can use this on regular basis.
Thanks for your feedback on thle Forclaz 100 Hiking shoes by Quechua. I apologise for the inconvenience caused to you.
The Forclaz 100 shoes by Quechua are designed for hiking on the mountains on easy paths where they offer good grip and support, but they come with an EVA rubber outsole which is not ideal for trekking as the grip needed on a terrain like Amarnath for example, is different and we recommend a shoe like Trek 100 from our range which offers superior grip and comfort as the outsole is made of PU which is more durable also.
To add a small insight on the materials used for grip, rubber is the cheapest and the best option for the best grip but the durability is very less. And hence we use components which are a polymer of rubber that give both grip and durability.
Now, I apologise again for the inconvenience caused to you and request you kindly to visit any of our stores closer to you and seek for a refund or exchange for a shoe which I would be glad to recommend you if you can let me know your usage.
I stay available if you need any further assistance with our products or services in future.
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.
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.
