Technical Information

1
Footwear waterproofing test
These boots, which have been laboratory and field tested, are equipped with a waterproof membrane that provides optimum waterproofing and breathability. First, the boot is immersed in water while the air pressure inside is increased to check that no bubbles form on the surface. Next, the boots are fitted to a mechanical arm that simulates walking and half immersed in water to test that the inside remains perfectly dry.
2
3 levels of waterproofing
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). Naturally, when the product has dried after this test or in use, it regains its original waterproofing.
3
Footwear waterproof rating
The TREK 700 boot has passed the waterproofing test involving 8000 flexes, i.e. 16 km of walking in water up to the middle 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 - abrasion of the sole and upper components - 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 boots, standing up, with the socks worn for hiking. Try on several models or sizes if necessary. Check the following two comfort points: the base of the heel (the heel should barely lift up, if at all) and the forefoot when going downhill (the toes should not touch the front of the boot). You should not feel any pressure points when trying them on. Feel free to walk around the store. Gradually wear in your boots during your first few hikes so that they conform to your feet.

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 PRICED & A STIFF & STUFFY FEEL."
Used for 3 to 6 months
Not very impressed with the hardness/ stiffness of the Vibram sole. Throughout my treks it feels stiff and lacks flexibility. Over rocks and stones I do not find the sole taking to the terrain.

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

Used for 2 to 8 weeks
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.
