No Matter whatever the guys on the shop is saying, how great the shoes his ....Believe me its really bad...i completely wasted my money in buying this bad shoes ....Its slips all the time.. very bad grip and traction. The shoe overall is good the but the primary function his itself so horrible... your confidence while walking becomes very bad and gets scared in taking every step with this shoe... So i had to buy a brand new shoes after this...Action trekking best and budget and totally worth it
This shoe provides great comfortability when hiking. It also gives good grip in dry terrains. But in wet surfaces,it slips. Another problem is with the lace,it easily unties. Besides these two problems,this shoe is worth to buy. I believe Decathlon will resolve these issues in the upcoming models.
I bought a pair of "UECHUA ARPENAZ 100 MID WATERPROOF MEN'S HIKING BOOTS" on 4th March 2017 from Huda City Store.
I paid 2,999/- for the shoe (not a small amount for me). I thought the quality of the shoe will be very good and they will outlast the warranty period of 2 years.
But just only after 5 months of use (twice a month) for walks on plain Delhi roads, the pasting on the shoes has started to come off. Photo of the damaged shoe attached.
I never for a moment thought a shoe like UECHUA ARPENAZ 100 MID WATERPROOF MEN'S HIKING BOOTS, which is supposed to be a tough shoe, will have such poor quality.
Since out visit to Valley of flowers and Hemkund was in rainy season so I had specifically bought this shoe. I was not disappointed by the performance. It rained intermittently on all 5 days but not once did I feel that shoe is wet from inside.
This is the first time I visited Decathlon which is located in Mysore Road, Bangalore. I never thought they have so many quality products are available to choose.
I wanted to buy one Waterproof jacket but unfortunately I could not able to get that but instead, i bought the nice shoe from Quechua.
Am wearing every day now, am pretty happy with the product which is very much comfortable and nice looking shoe.
Seriously, very depressed by the product of Decathlon. The product which i purchased from Decathlon store, ETA mall, Bangalore was tagged as waterproof, but as I experienced, it is not waterproof, recently went on a trip, it rained and all water drained into the shoes. Very depressing, I want to return this product.
Hello Mr. Deepak,
Thanks for your feedback on the arpenaz 100 hiking shoes by Quechua. I apologise for the inconvenience caused to you by our product.
To give you an insight on this shoe, the Arpenaz 100 is designed for hiking on the lowlands for beginners, for occasional usage. The shoes are waterproof for 2000 flexes ( a value used to rate waterproofing of shoes) after our standard laboratory tests and also after tests by users in terrains where this shoe is designed for usage on. In your case, there could be a possibility that the water entered from the top of the shoe or the socks got wet and soaked water. For this, an ideal solution is to wear a gaiter which prevents the water to enter from the top. If you believe this is not the scenario, I request you kindly to visit any of our store closer to you and seek for an exchange or refund. I would be glad to assist you with a right shoe for you if you could let me know your usage.
I stay available if you need any further assistance with our products or services in future.
Been using the shoes for 6 months - now the lace has started peeling . Went to Decathlon shop in Chennai OMR - lace not available. But the shoes otherwise is very comfortable.
This one's a great shoe for its price. The shoe fits comfortably and makes hiking on dirt tracks easy. But it slips on wet rocky surfaces so needs a lot of cautious stepping in the rain.
I have worn this pair in Roopkund and Hampta pass treks, and it has provided superb grip on slippery stones, very nice grip on snow as well with proper stepping techniques, kept my feet pretty dry in rains. Only problem was the lace which were getting lose when wet.
