Purchased for forthcoming Himalayan trek so took a trial by hiking for few hours around uneven terrain. Good for rough and tough use.
When I tried these shoes at the decathlon store they were very comfortable but while hiking after about 30 minutes, I started having shoe bites and till the time I completed my trek my feet were in worst condition full of ulcers. The material used for these shoes is too hard from the inside as well which is very uncomfortable.
Hello Mitali,Thanks for your feedback on the Arpenaz 100 hiking shoes. I am really sorry about the unpleasant experience you have had with our product. Blisters can happen for many reasons. In your case, it could have happened because you have used the new shoes first time for the hike. We generally recommend to buy the shoe in advance before your hike and use it for short distance walking so that the new shoes get adapted to the shape of your feet. I apologise for not communicating this information while you made the purchase.Kindly refer to this link for our advice on preventing blisters: https://www.quechua.co.uk/advice/how-prevent-blisters-a_110628If you are still not satisfied, you can visit the nearest decathlon store or write to email@example.com for an exchange/refund.
Thanks & Regards,

Durable and Sturdy. These hiking shoes come in a soothing colour and are a great fit. A good value for money and easy to pack and carry around.
These maybe waterproof when walking in rain, but if you walk in long grass then they are a no no.
Bought for wife to use during Nordic walking. Stood up really well to downpour over 1 hour and walking through long grass.. Wife says size fit was good and comfortable .
heavy rain and long grass remained waterproofed
None so far
walking shoes you could walk in all day without problem, and keep your feet dry and aired - what more could you ask for
support, waterproof, comfort
weighty but not overly heavy
I would recommend buying these. Went walking in Wales and needed some walking shoes with a good grip, which were comfortable and good value for money. These tick all the boxes.
really good value for money, very comfortable
A very good shoe; reasonably priced; very solidly constructed; good re-inforcements at wear areas; five-point lacing system give a snug fit; sole has an efficient lug pattern and it really is waterproof .
Well constructed; comfortable; really waterproof
Waterproof even on wet grass. Worn most days for 6 weeks, very comfortable, no sign of wear. Great value for money.
Excellent purchase,can be worn for every day use, without feet becoming tired and uncomfortable. definitely recomend for light country walking.
light weight ,comfortable, easy to wear for long
slippery on wet stone surfaces
