Technical Information

1
Footwear waterproofing test
Tested in laboratory and in use, these shoes, equipped with a Waterproof membrane, will ensure optimal impermeability and breathability. First, the shoe is immersed in water while internal air pressure is applied to check that no bubbles form on the surface of the footwear. Next, shoes are fitted to a mechanical arm that simulates walking, half immersed in water so we can test that the inside remains perfectly dry.
2
3 levels of waterproofness
In our waterproofing tests, we test 3 levels of waterproofing: 2000 flexions (approximately 4 km walk) 4000 flexions (approximately 8 km walk) 8000 flexions (approximately 16 km walk). Of course, after this test or in use, the shoe regains its original waterproofing once dry.
3
Shoe waterproofing level
The TREK 700 shoe has been tested for waterproofness and validated for 8000 flexions, or a 16-km walk, in water reaching the mid-point of the upper.
4
Laboratory tests
Laboratory tests were conducted to test the following elements: - attachment of eyelets and webbing, - sole assembly, - toxicology, - UV resistance, - sole and upper component abrasion, - accelerated ageing.
5
Care instructions
Use a brush and/or a sponge to clean the shoe and remove dirt or mud residue. Then, air dry away from a heat source. Finish by spraying the upper with a waterproof spray to maintain the water repellent properties and prolong the lifetime of the shoe.

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 heel seating (the heel does not or hardly slips) and the front of the foot while going downhill (the toes do not touch the front of the shoe). Avoid all pressure points when trying them on. Don't hesitate to walk around the store. Gradually start using you shoes during your first few hiking trips to break them in.

They look tough and waterproof but....
Used for 2 to 8 weeks
Having booked a holiday in Ireland I needed some tough waterproof boots, as I had split the sole on my old pair.

I have previously brought Decathlon’s excellent cycling clothing I was expecting a similar level of value for money and performance. In the shop I was immediately impressed by the look and fit of these boots. They felt like an extension of my body, a bit like growing hooves. I felt like I would be able to negotiate rough terrain like a goat.

I broke them in carefully over a long period. I wore them for work and twice walked the 4 miles home.

My holiday involved daily walks of about 15 miles through some rough terrain. I found that contrary to my initial expectations the boots felt too heavy and too inflexible. After a couple of days, I developed painful blisters on the back of both feet.

The fourth day of the Holiday was wet. I very surprised to find that after a couple of hours my feet were starting to feel wet. By the end of the day my feet were soaked. My friends with lighter boots also had wet feet, but not as wet as mine. In contrast to mine, their boots dried overnight, whilst I had to soldier on with wet boots until the end of the week.

I returned the damp, muddy boots to Decathlon the following weekend, and was surprised but very pleased to be given a no questions asked, full refund.

Not quite what I expected of a pair of Treking boots from France. International treckers & climbers with some experience will not recommend. Also not properly watetproof
EXCELLENT AND AMAZING PRODUCT
Used for 2 to 8 weeks
I have used it for trekking at Mount Everest base camp and find this product terrifically good and well to tackle every condition, i.e., ranging from walking in snow and in heavy rain to walking on uneven surfaces of mountains.
I am very thankful of Decathlon as they have encarved such a masterpiece for trekking lovers. Afte buying this pair shoes I feel very happy and delighted.
Must to have product for all trekking enthusiasts.
COULD BE BETTER FOR THE PRICE
Used for More than 1 year
On the pricey side and not sturdy & not completely waterproof
Response of the brand
Hello Oliz Kristen,Thank you for taking the time to give us your opinion on Trek 700 boots by Forclaz. 
I am sincerely sorry that the shoe did not meet your expectations for the trek. We designed this shoe to meet the needs of demanding trekkers, for users mostly on rough and technical trails. So the major value we focused on is the stiffness of the shoe and durability of the material used. The shoe has protection all around the circumference of the shoe to protect from the terrain outside, the Velcro strap across the ankle to be precise on every step you keep on the mountain. The outsole is 100% rubber VIBRAM, to ensure a good grip.  In terms of the waterproofing, it is tested for 16 Km of walking in water till the mid of the upper. A small recommendation I have here is to use the shoe with a gaiter to avoid water seeping in from the top of the shoe when there is a rain or high water level.  We have tested this shoe with external users on the field, on the mountains of Latin America to ensure that our value promise is passed to our users.  Having said this, at Decathlon, all our products have improved from its conception based on the feedback from our beloved users. If you could let me know the trek you used this for and a little more on the water seepage from, it would mean a lot to us, to see what really caused the issue and for us to provide you the best possible solution.

I invite you kindly to visit any  Decathlon store closer to you to make the exchange or refund your pair of shoes Trek 700, and thus be able to enjoy another pair of trekking shoes better meet your expectations.I hope that despite this mishap, you will continue to give us your trust. Sportively,Sandeep NAIR,Passionate Trekker.
"NOT UP TO THE MARK"
Nice colour & looks amazing in the picture's but have developed ankle & knee pain after using these boots. Over priced compare to the competitors.
Response of the brand
Hello Beni,

Thanks for your valuable time to review the Trek 700 boots by Forclaz. I apologise for the inconvenience caused to you.

The Trek 700 is designed in a way to delight the needs of a trekker out for more than a week on the mountains with tough terrains. Hence the shoe has a heavy duty construction, vibram rubber sole for superior grip and full foot cushioning to support the long duration. The ankle is high, hard and the outer has a full length rubber boundary to guard you against the terrain outside. Due to this tough construction, till you break in, there could be chances that you face this and I apologise again for this inconvenience caused.

Meanwhile, if you feel unsatisfied with the product still, I request you to visit any of our stores closer to you and seek for a refund. I stay available if you need any further assistance with our products or services in the future.
 


Sportively,
Sandeep NAIR
OVER HYPED & OVER PRICED
Used for 7 to 12 months
First off, this is an ancient model. Bought 2 pairs for my husband and myself. The water/ snow seeps in & does not make one feel stable or provide the feeling of reliability. FORCLAZ was a better product before 2010 NOT ANY MORE. A complete waste of our hard earned money. Soo very disappointed.
Overpriced, Uncomfortable & not recommend for M &
Used for 3 to 6 months
These Forclaz 700 Hiking boots/ shoes have a flat feel to them and are limited to accommodate only narrow feet, folk with wider feet will struggle. Overpriced. For a hiking boot Collector worth $70 to $80 tops & not more than 5000 Rupees for the Indian & Nepal market.
Excellent boots, superior quality and fit

Though I have only had these boots for three weeks I have worn them every day in wet and arduous terrain. They are lightweight and robust with great ankle support and grip.
The lace locking capability at the ankle is very useful when adjusting for fit and the velcro support strap ensures security around the foot. They are a little inflexible at first, but took only a couple of days to become very flexible. The sizing does come a little small - I am usually a 6UK and needed a 6.5UK.
