This was my first purchase from Decathlon. i was very excited by getting these shoes .But on trek i found these shoes below my expectation. As mentioned in product description these are waterproof and can be used for whole day / 8 hr in a day but when i used this product water entered in my shoes within first hour of my trek. I faced bad experience with these shoes. Talking about its gripping quality on trek is very good.
I bought these because I wanted a lighter shoe for the summer, but still waterproof. I wear the Forclaz 500 boots all day throughout the other seasons and they've been excellent. I wear the Forclaz 600 for hiking and they are all round good, superb in wet conditions.
These shoes, however, seem significantly less breathable than the boots and consequently my feet are getting uncomfortably hot regularly. I find myself reaching for my old sandals instead. Which is a pity. Because I like them and want them to be as trustworthy as the other footwear I've mentioned.
This is a great fitting, sturdy, waterproof shoe that has served me well around the city and on the occasional walk. Sadly, I have found the material on the sole to be slippery when wet. I don't think I could trust them, for example, on wet rocks.
