I bought these shoes last year to hike in wet boggy and rocky terrain in Scotland. i was so glad i did! the sole is extremely sturdy on wet surfaces and has good grip on inclined terrain. the outer shell of the shoes dries quickly and the inner padding keeps the feet sufficiently warm in wet climates. i would recommend this product for wet/rocky/snowy surfaces.
I have been using this product past few weeks. I went to trekking in rocks and heavy rain, it doesn't impact on this shoes. It is totally rough and tough. I would highly recommend this product to others specially for trekking purpose.
I have used this for my backpacking in Peru for almost 1 month at maximum altitude of 17000 ft and it has been a pleasure to use this there. Have also used in snow without a single slip anywhere.
Used this shoe on several treks, in rain, snow, rocky terrian, waterfalls etc. Shoe is good on muds, have decent waterproofing, and if tighten propely high ankle system work and prevent sudden twisting.
However, the shoe fails miserably on following grounds:
1. Less grip on rocks
2. No grip at all on wet rock or on rock with wet sole
3. As the temp. drops even not in snow, the upper part of the feet starts becoming cold, which is really uncomfortable. The upper portion of the shoe doesn't have enough cushion or insulation to keep feet warm.
4. The toe guard is protect the toe, but I still felt the more pain in fingers than usual toe guard protection.
During winter Kuari Pass trek I felt that my socks are getting weait very frequently so I thought may be because of sweat, so I just keeps change the shocks But actually it was leakage or poor quality of waterproof material which is fail to do the waterproof job and because of the ice water it is got wet.
Now I am planning for Rain trek in Valley of flower and I use this shoe just for 30 minutes in rain for test and the result was very disappointing.
Side leather portion are getting wet completely and water comes inside through that, moreover when its getting dry, its looks also got changed and looks like a poor quality shoes. Not impressive.
Thanks for your time to review the Trek 100 boots by Forclaz. I apologize that the product did not live up to your expectation while on your trek.
To give you a small insight into the Trek 100 boot, it comes with a waterproof membrane that is tested for 4000 flexes which translates to 8 hours of walking in the water till the mid of the shoe. A challenge here is when it starts to rain or the level of water is high, water can seep in through the top of the shoe. To win this, a gaiter comes handy and blocks water or snow from entering inside the shoe. For the socks, as we walk for a longer duration while exploring the mountains, a material that is highly breathable and quick drying is required to wick the perspiration away and keep it dry always due to the sweat. Also please be assured that all our products are tested for usage and quality under two levels, one under laboratory conditions and second, real-time on the field by users
. This allows us to give a 2-Year warranty on all our products.
If you believe you had used the shoes as I had mentioned above, I believe the shoe you have is defective and I request you kindly to visit any of our stores closer to you and get this product exchanged. I stay available if you need any further assistance with our products or services in the future.
These shoes are light given the volume that they have, and so don't feel heavy. I bought one size bigger than the one that my feet fit into, and my feet feel snug inside without any movement inside as I had feared it would. It has a good grip too, though I'm yet to test it out in an actual trek, but I'm sure that it will hold up good. I shall write about its cushioning factor (main thing for a heavy weight person like me) after testing it in a mountain trek.
The water proofing is also good as no water gets in unless it is from the top at the mouth of the shoe which is exactly what happened recently when it was pouring heavily. And as I was wearing a few days old used socks, the water inside didn't dry out till I opened my shoes several hours later, and left a stink inside. Any ideas on how I can clean the shoe to remove that stink?
