Technical Information

1
Waterproofing test
Footwear waterproofing test: tested in the laboratory and in use, these boots, equipped with a waterproof and breathable membrane, guarantee optimal protection against the rain. First immersed in water under air pressure, we check the absence of bubbles on the surface of the boot. They are half immersed and then placed on a mechanical arm that simulates walking: we then check that the inside of the shoe remains perfectly dry.
2
3 levels of waterproofing
During the waterproofing test, we test 3 levels of impermeability, ie 2000 flexes (about 2 hours of walking), 4000 flexes (about 4 hours of walking) and 8000 flexes (about 8 hours of walking). Of course, after this test or in use, the shoe regains its original waterproofing once dry.
3
Field test
All our shoes are tested for initial comfort and comfort in use by typical users and under the same conditions you find in use. Our Test Missions combine the product manager with non-Quechua-affiliated people to test, develop and validate products.
4
Laboratory Testing
Other laboratory tests are also conducted to validate the following elements: tearing of eyelets and straps, bonding, toxicology, UV resistance, abrasion of sole and upper components, accelerated ageing.
5
What size should I choose?
For hiking, don’t hesitate to choose one size above your usual shoe size to ensure optimal comfort going downhill and avoid toes hitting the end. Tip: keep your nails short and, before making your descent, check that your lacing prevents your foot from sliding towards the front of the boot.
6
Buying tips
Try on both shoes, standing up, with the socks worn for hiking. Try several models, several 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. Break in your boots gradually during their first hikes to adapt them to your foot.

Totally not satisfied
Used for 1 week or less
I usually buy stuff at Decathlon and this is the very first time I am absolutely diasppointed in a product. I bought these shoes for work (I have an office job) and my feet hurt like hell and I have blisters... they don't ventilate so I have wet feet every single day...
Response of the brand
Hi Joeri,

I am sorry to hear about your negative experience with the Arpenaz 100 WTP Men's Hiking shoe. While these shoes are designed for walking outside rather than for office work, they should not be giving you blisters. Your Decathlon account gives you the possibility of exchanging or refunding your product within 365 days of purchase. Since everyone's feet are different sizes and shapes I recommend that you travel to your nearest Decathlon store where you can get an expert fitting from one of our Sports Advisor's. I would also advise you to not go for a pair of waterproof shoes if your after maximum breathability. You can see the full list of our non-waterproof shoes in the following link: https://www.decathlon.co.uk/C-604825-walking-shoes/N-327528-gender~men%27s/N-261330-waterproof-produ....

Your satisfaction is our priority.

Used for 2 to 8 weeks
I use these for a daily muddy dog walk and they are very good, keep feet dry and the sole is nice and firm. Only down side is they do make my feet walm quite quickly so would need something breathable for a longer walk say over a couple of hours on a mild day.
Good grip and waterproof with reasonable price!
Used for 2 to 8 weeks
I used this shoe for heavy 3 days rocky hiking. It was safe my life many times on steep rocky trail! No wet feet when it was raining (slightly rain).
However, I should have bought a slightly bigger size as I got show bites.
I found them to be quite narrow
Used for 2 to 8 weeks
I'm usually a size UK9/EU43 but with this shoe I had to get a UK10.5/EU45; While there is some room, once done up I have not found my feet to move around inside or slip off.
They are not as breathable as I thought they might be and have yet to try them in wet conditions but for £25 they are very decent and could see myself buying another pair.
