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.

Used for 2 to 8 weeks
I purchased this product for a trip to Iceland where a bit of hiking was involved (Around 2-3 hours every day, rest was by car). The shoes were fine for the 1st day only. After that the left shoe literally killed my foot. It hurt so bad whenever I had to walk. With almost no civilization I was unable to buy new shoes and had to suffer a nightmare walking in these. I'm severely disappointed with Decathlon as this was one of my first purchases. Please don't buy these.

This is good as it is having ankle support. I have done the high altitude trek with this shoe. Don't use it new in the trek use it before the trek this will help for more friction.
FORCLAZ 100 HIGH MEN HIKING SHOES
Used for 2 to 8 weeks
Bought the shoe from Decathlon Howrah, everything is fine, except the grip, it slips easily on cemented wet surface, i.e. on wet leaves, light moss, etc., Actually the grip of the shoe, misses the micro designs that are present in your Arpenaz 50 Mid shoes. Should change the outer sole, so that the shoe doesn't slips. I didn't expect it from Decathlon.
Good one

Response of the brand
Hello Vinayak,

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 1 week or less
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
Excellent product
Used for 3 to 6 months
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
