Made for We created these boots for children who hike occasionally. It is ideal on packed snow, for exploring snowy trails. These warm boots are easy to get on thanks to their wide opening and the adjustment rip-tab. They feel more protective thanks to the enhanced support.
Can I be sure that my boots are warm enough for my winter hikes?
We chose a warm lining that has insulation to give you effective protection from the cold.
Based on the field and lab tests carried out with a panel of users to measure perceived cold, we gauge the thermal insulation of our shoes. It is therefore possible to accurately measure the temperature limit of your shoes' insulation. The comfort temperature ratings are indicated for the shoes: -10°C for this model.
How do my boots protect me from outdoor conditions?
Your boots were designed with a membrane to make them waterproof and breathable. A membrane is a very fine component (5 to 25 micrometres) affixed to the inside of a fabric that prevents water from entering while allowing moisture to escape.
How can I be sure my boots are 100% waterproof?
We made sure that your boots are waterproof by conducting laboratory tests to simulate walking with the boots half submerged in water. We also conducted field tests to measure wear and ageing. During the waterproofing test, we test 3 levels of waterproofing: 2000 flexes (about 4 km of walking), 4000 flexes (about 8 km of walking) and 8000 flexes (about 16 km of walking). Your boots were tested at 4000 flexes, which is equivalent to 8 km of walking.
What is the difference between traction and grip?
The traction of the boots depends on the number and shape of the lugs (4 mm on this boot). As for the grip, it depends on the materials of the sole and the tread pattern, like the tyres of your car. Traction optimises propulsion, prevents the boot from slipping backwards when going uphill and stabilises the boot.
Grip prevents the boot from slipping and skidding on smooth ground or in demanding conditions (rain, snow, ice) by giving grip to the sole.
Will my boots withstand regular use over the long-term?
Our engineers conduct laboratory tests to guarantee your full satisfaction in use. We validate the following elements among other things: strength of the eyelets and straps, strength of the glued assemblies, toxicology, UV resistance, abrasion resistance of the sole and upper components and accelerated ageing.
How to choose the right footwear for snow hiking
To be well equipped in winter, we recommend that you follow these principles :
Warmth: warmth provided by a warm pair of socks (ideally containing a suitable percentage of wool)
Breathability: Choose the sock according to the intensity of the hike and make sure you get a breathable model to minimise moisture.
Boot height: adjust the height of the sock to the height of the boot and preferably choose high models if want more protection.
How to preserve the technical qualities of my boots?
The water-repellent property of a fabric is its ability to make water run off its surface without absorbing it. In this way, the fabric does not soak up water and therefore remains lightweight, breathable and warm. The water-repellent property is obtained by applying a treatment to the outer surface of the fabric. This treatment needs to be renewed during the lifetime of the garment. Products (spray or liquid) designed specifically for this purpose are available in our stores.
How does my product warranty work?
This product is guaranteed for 2 years from the date shown on the sales receipt. A product covered by the warranty will be repaired or exchanged free of charge. The warranty covers product defects, excluding those resulting from normal wear and tear and improper use.
A score for comparing the products’ environmental impact
The product's environmental impact is calculated over its entire life cycle using different indicators. A score from A to E is given to help you easily identify the more eco-friendly products by comparing products of the same type. Decathlon is committed to this approach.

We advise you to store your products in a ventilated room away from light and moisture.
Our team of designers is based at the foot of Mont-Blanc, in Haute-Savoie (France). All year round, we create and develop beautiful, simple and technically advanced products. These are then tested in the field because we believe that the only way to continually improve our products is to test them in the real-life conditions that you will experience.
