Bought it 2 weeks back, used it just once and in the first 90 min of usage water was in.. I had planned for wearing these on Himalayan treks but these are not even worth for mansoon treks in western ghats.. disappointed with the product
Thank you for your feedback on the Forclaz 100 Hiking Shoes. We are sorry to hear that you are not happy with the product. Here I have few information to help you understand the usage of this product.
1. This shoe is designed for 1-day Hiking, and it is not recommended for several days trekking since it doesn't come with the grip and comfort requires for Trekking. We have Trek 100 Boots for your Himalayan trek: https://www.decathlon.in/p/8319097_quechua-forclaz-500-men-s-high-waterproof-hiking-shoes.html
2. It will provide waterproofing only until the second lace hook from the top. The same has been tested in our laboratory as well as in the field. Here is a video for your reference: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xGQG2TyY9d0
However, there are chances that this could have happened due to a manufacturing defect from our end. So, I would request you to take your shoes to any of our stores, and the team would be more than happy to investigate the product and help you accordingly.
I remain available in case you have any further queries:)
Used for mountaineering, proved to be the best.
Purchased this from Bhubaneswar decathlon. Going to Kailash Mansarovar in July 2017. To get accoustumed , went for a morning walk. Only after 3 to 4 km that too in the park, the upper part of both the Shiites developed crack where it folds. Am taking the shoes to the store. Don't know how to go for the trip if a product like quechua behaves like this
Great product. Has served me well on two treks, both with snow and rains and over a week each.
Can the team share some maintenance tips? How to keep it waterproof (any recommendations on product), how to clean the inside of the shoe, and tips on drying it! Would help a lot
Really good quality at this price range. Had used the same shoes borrowing from a friend and decided to go for it. Robust design, good grip on rocky surfaces, but not waterproof. A bit clumsy on soft snow, and slippery on hard ice which is expected. Overall, a good buy!
I used these for my Roopkund Trek in the month of May and they proved to be wonderful. Of course, these are not so great when it comes to a snowy terrain but the grip otherwise is nice.
I bought this "FORCLAZ 100 HIGH MEN HIKING SHOES BROWN/RED QUECHUA" 11 months back for my trek. I used it for 2 treks till now and occasionally for my travel. Recently i realize that my left show sole is showing up cracks and pealing off. My right shoe is good. Initially i
though it might be because of my improper usage so checked my other pair of shoes which was bought from Decathlon more than 4 years back and the shoe sole is perfectly fine even after using it more than my new one. I visited whitefield store (bangalore) a month back but no response till now. Now
i can't use FORCLAZ 100 shoe for my future treks. I see this as a quality issue with the left shoe sole. Highly disappointed with the quality.
Thank you for your review on the Forclaz 100 Hiking Shoes. We are really glad to know that you have used our shoes for more than 4 years and would like to thank you for keeping the trust to go for another one.
I would request you to read the below information to understand the usage and the possible reasons how the issue would have happened with the shoe.
1. Manufacturing defect.
2. Improper Usage: This shoe is meant for a full day hiking on the mountain. If you use it for more than a day, the shoes won't provide the features we have mentioned. eg: Cushioning is guaranteed by the EVA sole which compresses after a day of use, and it takes a couple of days to regain its original size. Which means you will have less comfort if you use it for more than a day.
3. Our Shoes are not meant to be used for a bike ride. The engine heat melts the glue, which could also be the reason why the sole has come off.
We sincerely apologise for the unpleasant experience you have had with us. Kindly visit the store and meet Mr. Sabir Rahim, who handles the Mountain Sports department at the Whitefield store who will be able to help you with this.
Please write back to me if you need any further help.
At your Service,

3.Used it for Kailash Mansarovar Yatra and provided excellent support.
THANKS AND KEEP DESIGNING GREAT PRODUCTS FOR HUMAN RACE TO MOUNTAINS.
I purchased the pair from Decathlon Sohna road, December 2016, wore these on an overseas trip,
the boots are comfortable
Supports the foot quite firmly inducing confidence, no matter what the trail is like.
In cold keeps feet warm
Had used only for about three to four times when the seam on the shoe tongue came off exposing the foam and padding inside.
On my return to India I called up Decathlon, without any questions asked the pair of boots were replaced - much appreciated.
I have always liked the focus that the Decathlon staff have towards customer service, this incident (replacement of the defective boots) reaffirms my belief, I am associated with a Brand that cares about its customers
The product is awesome and it gave great grip on uneven / slippery surfaces. I used this shoes for my KetharKanth trekking program. I spent around rs.4000 for buying this. The guys who bought the similar products for lesser price in online also came along with me for the trekking. The difference is I paid rs.4000 for buying these shoes and they paid more to doctors for healing their fracture / knee pain after the trekking. Guys go for good products from authenticated stores. Safety is more important
