My son wears out shoes quickly but these are the most durable ones we have had.
They take a lot of punishment and clean up well plus they are a lot cheaper than what we usually buy.
These were bought for my two boys as there fist step in to outdoor walking. As they are known for destroying shoes just by looking at them its a pleasant supprise to see how well made they are and up until now lasting really well. I would highly recommend these I just covered them with water proofer and and away you go.
The wee one says that these are very comfortable and he loves them for walking the dogs through the forest
Bought for my son as waterproof shoes, however, after a couple of hours of walking on wet grass his feet and socks were wet through.
I am sorry to hear about your negative experience with the Arpenaz 50 Children Waterproof Hiking Shoe. All of our waterproof shoes are tested in a laboratory setting as well as in the field to validate their waterproofness. The Arpenaz 50 Children Waterproof Hiking Shoe is tested for up to two hours of walking in wet ground. If the product was used for less than two hours and still failed then there must be a manufacturing default. I would advise you to travel to your nearest Decathlon store for an exchange or a refund. Alternatively you can return your item by post by following the instructions here: https://www.decathlon.co.uk/return-order-by-post.html

Bought these hiking shoes for my two boys, we were going on a trip to Snowdonia and my boys found them really comfy when climbing up Snowdon. Seem hard wearing, very happy with my purchase.
Work really well for kids hiking
a must buy for kids. rugged to be used by hyper active kids too
strength, ruggedness, waterproofing
Have bought a few pairs of these for my 5 year old son now. He loves that they are waterproof and comfortable. In addition to this, I love that they are rugged and heard wearing, as well as well priced.
My son runs, climbs, crawls and abuses shoes in any way possible. Despite his numerous efforts, he has been unable to destroy these shoes- admittedly they don't look as good by the time he's outgrown them, but they are still highly functional.
Worth every penny, that's why I continue to by them as he grows.
Hard wearing, comfortable, waterproof
They don't grow as my son's feet grow.
