Technical Information

1
Crosscontact sole
Lengthy lab research into the design of the sole, combined with a special rubber formulation which optimises the balance between traction and adhesion. We aim to provide the best compromise when walking on dry and slippery terrain, addressing the differing requirements of each.

Fresh Concept

Laboratory-approved design, fully tried and tested by testers and users, guaranteeing that your feet will always feel dry on summer hikes https://d1065et7n9hdcp.cloudfront.net/__imageservlet/file/damimport/pj/024/f14719398129730/forclaz_fresh_man.jpg?variation=thumbnailBig

Field test
All our shoes are tested in comfort and in use by users who represent those, for whom the products are designed, under conditions identical to those that you can find in use. Our "Missions Tests" put the product manager in contact with people who are not affiliated with Quechua to test, develop and validate the products.

Laboratory test
Other laboratory tests are also conducted to approve the quality of the following components: Tearing of the eyelets and straps, stitching, toxicology, UV resistance, abrasion of the sole and the components of the upper, 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 your boots during your first few hiking trips to break them in.

Decathlon need to bring in the concept of narrow medium wide and extra wide foot beds or else their shoes tend to be little narrow on standards

Response of the brand
Hello Sathya,Thanks for giving us this feedback. I am sorry that we do not have shoes designed to fit foot with different width. But, I will share your valuable feedback with our product design team to see if we can bring this concept in the future. In the meanwhile, you can bring the product to any of our stores to have the refund.
Thanks & Regards,
