Technical Information

1
Footwear waterproofing test.
Tested in laboratory and in use, these shoes, equipped with a Waterproof membrane, will ensure optimal impermeability and breathability. First, the shoe is submerged in water while internal air pressure is applied to check that no bubbles form on the surface of the footwear. Then these are placed, half submerged, on a mechanical arm simulating walking, where it is checked that the interior of the shoe remains perfectly dry.
2
3 levels of waterproofing.
During the impermeability test, 3 levels of impermeability are tested: 2000 flexions (approximately 4 km walk) 4000 flexions (approximately 8 km walk) 8000 flexions (approximately 16 km walk). Of course, after this test or in use, the shoe regains its original waterproofing once dry.
3
Shoe waterproofing level.
The TREK 100 shoe is validated on the impermeability test in 8000 flexions or 16km walk in water up to mid-upper.
4
Lab tests
Laboratory tests were conducted to test the following elements: - wrenching of hooks and eyelets - joining of the sole - toxicology - resistance to UV - abrasion of the sole and upper components - 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 (the heel does not take off or it does so slightly) and the forefoot while going downhill (the toes do not touch the front of the shoe). Avoid all pressure points when trying them on. Don't hesitate to walk around the store. Gradually start using your shoes during your first few hiking trips to break in them.

Care instructions
Use a brush to clean the shoe and remove dirt or mud residue. Always brush in the same direction to give nubuck its original look. The use of cream or waterproof grease on split leather is not recommended. This is not problematic in itself, but it would change the shoe's aesthetic look.

Good for difficult treks
Used for 7 to 12 months
I've worn these shoes on rocky routes, crossed rivers and walked in snow. The grip and waterproofing are perfect. Worth every rupee spent.
Forclaz 500 - sole came off midway in a trek
Used for 3 to 6 months
The sole of my Forclaz 500 came off midway in a trek - my shoes are only 4 months old. It is a hiker's worst nightmare come true.
It is waterproof for sometime, waterstarts to leak in after 20/30 minutes in a rain.
It slips/ skids big time on wet rocks. It has a decent grip on muddy surfaces. All in all, poor show, a let down for treks.
I'll give it a 5/10 for looks.
Sole can come off. Poor grip on rocks.
Unable to find Forclaz 500+ in stock
I have a mountain trek planned for next month and have been trying to find s Forclaz 500+ shoe in a Decathlon near by, but to no avail. My size is 9.5 US Women's shoe, and I live in Bangalore, India.
Also, I wanted to enquire about the alternate women's shoe that was recommended by you on a review posted. Is this available in India too?

Good reviews
Unable to find stock in near by stores for my size
Avoid -- it doesn't deliver what it promises
Used for 1 week or less
I bought this model or a one better than this last year (August 2014). I used it for a compulsory trek in the lower Himalayas, but slipped so many times and bruised myself so badly that for rest of the treks in the same region and middle Himalayas, I just relied my regular sports shoes. I remember spending over 7k for what turned out to be a single-day use. I bought a lot of other goods from Decathlon store in Noida, and they all turned out to be super. This might be one off aberrations maybe!
Looks good; is waterproof
Poor grip on hilly terrain; leads to slips & falls
Highly recommended
Used for 2 to 8 weeks
Very good shoes, I did a very hard trek in Indonesia with them and they are very comfy and resistant. No pain even when wearing them for the first time
Nice blue boots

Nice blue colour. Made me quick in Snowdonia. Much ahead of my slow husband. Good ankle support. A bit too serious for a Sunday stroll. A bit too hot for September weather.
Good sole.
A bit heavy.
Horrible ankle pain and bruises

Walking boots
Used for 3 to 6 months
I do hiking every month in different terrains and I bought these boots due to the good quality that all hiking decathlon items have, but no the boots, sadly. Maybe is the shape of my feet but after 2 hours using these boots I felt a terrible pain on the upper part and later on the sides. I wanted to give them an opportunity and I have used them in three hiking trips, but finally I gave up. Luckily, there was an issue with the boots and Decathlon sent me a letter asking me to bring the boots to a store to change them or return them and they did the return quickly giving me the opportunity to get another brand. They attended me really well as always.
The waterproof lasts for 2 hours, that is another issue.
Waterproof for a couple of hours
Limited waterproof, very uncomfortable
