Just to make it clear: review was for rubbery top version,not in stock just now, not this lighter version boot (shoe)
Almost identical to this one,except upper part is rubbery texture,this one is cloth type material on top of toe area. Just looking for spare pair whenever back in stock.got a pair fifteen months ago and still not falling apart ! The heel grips have worn down but not completely(slippy on ice-I use metal stud grippers on ice-, but not slippy on regular mud),the ball / flat part of foot still has chunky'ish grips with little visible wear.Was expecting 6 months wear then expected to see square compartments in heel wearing through letting in water even on tarmac as would happen with regular casual,fashion shoe...it's not happened yet.;very good wear.might get foam or gel insoles as feet fell tired ( I'm a wimp) after few of miles continuous walking.I usually walk a total of 1-2 miles a day.you do the arithmetic on the wear life so far.i wear them as an everyday casual shoe,not just country strolls.not waterproof but they say that, and after annoyance of upper part of boots rubbing against inner leg (boors from another company ) I wear shoes,not boots. I like the brown colouring and life of wear.don't know if they're vibram type rubber or similar ,but bloody good value for life of wear and cheapish.I'm not wearing those heavy 'frankenstein' looking walking boots that cost a bomb.not specialist lightweight trainers but I don't notice .decathlon and skechers type trainers would look minging with the mud I go through anyway.
time will rate
This is my second pair along with the Solognac high boot. As a vegan they are not leather and was really pleased with the price and quality. Found them to be very comfortable and very light. Would recommend them especially at this price!
I believed, I graduated to a higher level when I purchased a pair of these to replace my somewhat worn out 'Quechua Arpenaz 50' that had served me very well for 3 years... anybody who spends twice as much would. Now, after just 8 months of use, the rubber ( above my little toe when I wear the shoe ) of the right shoe is giving way. Plan to use it as long as I can and revert to 'Arpenaz 50' which would cost me only half as much. In case one wan'ts to know about usage, I am a birder who visits, water-bodies or forests or grass/scrub lands, in the plains and hills , every week-end. This has been my first bad-buy from 'Decathlon'
Thank you for taking out time to write your experience with Solognac Low Land 100.
I really appreciate your loyalty towards Decathlon and would like to apologise for the inconvenience caused to you by the product.
As per what I understand from your comment is that the Pasting of the rubber has come off for the right shoes from the Top.
This should not be happening with the Shoes.
I would request you to visit any of the nearest Decathlon stores and the get the product exchanged for either the same shoe or Arpenaz 50 as you mentioned or anything for the price range.
Hope the response was satisfactory for you.
