This shoe is perfect for hot weather trekking. I have been using it for more than 1 year still in perfect shape. It keeps the foot cool. I would not recommend it for daily use as its sole is little hard.
Color of the shoe doesn't match w

I apologize for the inconveniences caused.
Very good and light.
The size is slightly differ.I ordered 7 but I feel like 7.5.The quality,comfort,colour and everything is very good.
These shoes look different from the ones I own as Forclaz 500. I have (or rather had,) two of them just for colour variation and as for I found myself not liking to wear any other shoes I have other than this.
Unfortunately on my last trek to Sundardunga, while ascending , my right foot shoe's bottom tore off or unglued from the front section. It made my journey real toll taking. Somehow managed to ascend with great difficulty and where the shoe gave up. Our guide stitched it with a little rope (yes! rope!), and applied some glue, but anyhow at last had to carry them back on shoulders and walk wearing sleepers. Could have posted pictures if there was option... Not that it is a bad shoe, but events like this can take away trust which I believe is the key material of a product of this stature. And yes, it does lack grip on wet surface.
The shoess are good only thy lack grip in rainy season
While buying the product, I was told that it will be good to used in sahyadries wet condition also... The shoe sole is slippery over rocks in monsoons also the when the condition is muddy(as it usually get muddy in sahyadries during monsoon) the shoe won't help
As the monsoons are around the corner, I am really looking for better product which will help me during monsoons trekking in sahyadries

Good delivery. Correct size. Simply did not fell comfortable and the heel always slipped. The size was perfect, but even though other, older Quechua shoes were perfect, this new design is a fail for me. After bearing with them for a couple of weeks and a collective time use of less than 5 days, I dropped them off in a charity bin - maybe someone else can make better use of them.
I bought these shoes as I used similar merel shoes for a couple of years now, but these looked more durable on the outside.
After using them a couple of times I realised these are way hotter, even when its 20degC and sunny. I expected them to be very airy, because of the mesh construction, but it seems that all the plastic used just does not dissipate heat well...
I like how they look like though and they do fit my foot quite well.
Another problem is the tongue gets easily crinkled, so I need to take care when I put them on so they do not hurt.
I would recommend buying the Merrell Maipo over these shoes for comfort, but the Quechua might be more durable as they don't have as many laces on the outside of the shoe, which can get torn.
