Technical Information

1
Waterproofing test
The footwear is laboratory- and field-tested, equipped with membrane to ensure optimal waterproofing and breathability. Our Field Test Missions team up the product manager with people who aren't affiliated with QUECHUA, to test, improve, and validate our products.Next, shoes are fitted to a mechanical arm that simulates walking and half immersed in water so we can test that the inside remains perfectly dry.

3 levels of waterproofing
During the waterproofing test, we test 3 levels of waterproofing: 2000 flexes (around 2 hours of walking), 4000 flexes (around 4 hours of walking) and 8000 flexes (around 8 hours of walking). Of course, after this test or in use, the shoe regains its original waterproofing once the product is dry.

What size should I choose?
When taking up hiking, do not hesitate to take a size above your usual shoe size to guarantee an optimal comfort when walking downhill and to prevent your toes rubbing the tops of the shoe. Tip: nails must be cut short, and before descending, check that the laces stop the foot from slipping forward to the front of the shoe.
7
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 you boots during your first few hiking trips to break them in.

Comfy shoes,good for dry terrains.
Used for 2 to 8 weeks
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.
Poor Quality
Used for 3 to 6 months
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.
Very useful for trekking in rainy season and
Used for 2 to 8 weeks
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.
Very Much Satisfied

Used for 1 week or less
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.
Response of the brand
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.

Sportively,
Sandeep NAIR

Used for 2 to 8 weeks
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.
Superb & VFM
Used for More than 1 year
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.
expect nothing much
Used for 2 to 8 weeks
Does not fit my feet. I went for a size above my usual size. Yet while descending, shoes hurt my feet. To be specific my little finger hurts a lot. Does not even withstand intermittent rains while it claims to be entry level waterproofed. Think twice before buying this. Go for higher models, if you are thinking of reusing it for more than one treks. Do not expect much out of this.

Hello Mr. Harish,

Thanks for your feedback on the Arpenaz 100 Hiking shoes by Quechua. I apologize for the inconvenience caused to you by our product.

A. Regarding the fit: Yes, you did the right thing by going one size above than usual size in picking a hiking shoe but sometimes based on the feet it is sometimes two more because of a broader feet which ideally causes a pain in the little finger and when you are descending you do not have enough room to fit in. If you believe this is the case, I request you kindly to consider the Forclaz 100 shoes by Quechua in exchange for the current shoe you have, which gives better room compared to this model.

B. Waterproofing: Arpenaz 100 shoes are tested for 2000 flexes of waterproofing in laboratory and on field by users, which translates to 2 hours of walking. The challenge here is when it is raining there are chances that water enters from the top and makes the shoe wet and the perfect solution here is to wear gaiters on top which will stop water to enter from the top.

I stay available if you need any further assistance with our products or services in future.

Sportively,
Sandeep NAIR
