Great comfortable summer walking boots. but a walk in a field with the pooch in autumn resulted in wet feet. made horrible after 30 minutes further walking. not recommended unless decathlon sort the product.
I bought these a couple of months ago, and they were fine over the summer, but it was fairly dry. Autumn comes, and a short dog walk across wet grass resulted in a soaking foot. The same the following day, and so-on. I'm not talking about long walks across meadows in the rain, just an early morning stroll across dew-covered grass in a park. My foot was wet almost immediately. Very disappointing because I bought these thinking they'd be a better boot than my usual cheaper Dethlon boots. I will be returning them, as it says on them quite clearly that they are 'waterproof', when they are not. Shame really, because they are very comfortable. There's obviously some kind of fault in some of them, judging by the number of reviews from similarly disappointed customers. Guess I'll go back to my usual cheaper waterproof walking boots.
Only owned for over a month and it feels like I'm walking on rucked up socks as the heel support has given way only to light use.... Bad buy will be trying to return
Years of loving Decathlon and then i had a run of experiences where atpck was unavilable, online ordering took forever and kept crashing, telling me stock was unavailable, using clcik and collect only to pick the goods off the store shelves. Cant face using them again
So bought these boots as i usually just wear trainers when im hiking munros in scotland but thought i should upgrade as I’ve been doing a lot more recently and the winter is coming. Was drawn to these boots as they said they were waterproof, well, that is in fact not true. The boots may hold up in very light rain or walking through shallow puddles but within 10-15 minutes of the rain starting whilst climbing Ben Lomond today i was squelching along with full on puddles in both my boots. Beware there is a huge difference between WATERPROOF and WATER REPELLENT decathlon should know this and not be advertising these as waterproof as it is blatant false advertising. Due to how soaked my feet became and how soft the skin ended up i now have two great big blisters/wounds on each of my heels. Comfy boots otherwise when dry especially if you are flat footed like myself but do yourself a favour and spend a few extra pounds for a pair of proper waterproof boots by a reputable manufacturer if you plan on going out in anything wetter than a summer shower. Will be returning ASAP.
Very pleased with these shoes for my husband. He says that they are very comfortable.
Second pair of these boots I have had great mid range boot for a day out hill walking
Have only just started walking in these and so far very impressed by the comfort - the waterproofing is the big test though!
Comfort excellent But don’t stay waterproof for long
Very good boots - 2nd purchase
Excellent boots, very comfy - well done A⭐️
These boots are a surprisingly comfortable fit, especially for walking boots. The laces slide open easily, meaning no struggles to get your feet in, even with thick socks. Tightening is also easy, ensuring a snug fit with no slipping, even when laced up in a hurry. The waterproofing has been faultless, even when wading through ankle deep puddles and mud. I've had boots at twice the price that weren't a comfortable.
Very comfortable to wear, very waterproof and excellent grip.
Boots have good support at the back of the heel. Much better than other boots I have worn
Good boots that fit well,are warm and waterproof.

We have classified our products in terms of performance and features for 3 levels of Mountain Walking:- occasional: about 10 hikes per year of about 3 to 4 hours in length, covering less than 10km and less than 700m in elevation gain.- Regular: about 20 outings per year. 4 to 6 hours, 10 to 20 km, 700 to 1200m of elevation gain per outing.- Intensive: more than 20 times a year. More than 6 hours, more than 20 km, 1200 to 2000m of elevation gain per outing.
For the inner sole fabric coating of these boots, we dye the thread during manufacturing to reduce the environmental impact. Textile dyeing requires a lot of water but also produces waste water from the dye baths. To reduce this environmental impact, we use a mass pigmentation process that involves adding the colour pigments when the yarn itself is produced.
The grip of our soles is certified.To be awarded certification, the boots must pass laboratory tests to assess the grip rate on different surfaces (Smooth, Rugged, Dry, Wet). To validate these tests, we assess the quality of our soles in the field, in the mountains, by a panel of representative testers over 500 km
In a laboratory, the boot is immersed in water to mid-height on a mechanical arm that simulates a number of steps.With this test we can determine a time and number of km that the boot can walk while staying dry.- 2000 bends, about 30 minutes of hiking- 10 000 bends, about 3 hours- 30 000 bends, approximately 8 hours- 50 000 bends, approximately 12 hoursThen we confirm that the boot keeps its promises in use on the ground and in the rain.
To keep your feet dry, we advise you to use a waterproof gaiter or mini-gaiter to protect the top of your boots and prevent water, pebbles and sand from getting in.We advise re-waterproofing your boots twice a year using a re-waterproofing agent (search for ‘waterproofing’ on our Decathlon website) which will help you restore the original water-repellent qualities and help prevent stains on the outside.
This boot is fitted with the EVOFIT concept. With its stretch materials and specific design for the area of the foot where the joints are located, EVOFIT technology allows the boot to perfectly fit the shape of your foot.
Our Quechua global design centre is based in Passy, at the foot of Mont-Blanc in Haute Savoie.This location makes it a real meeting place for our teams (designers, product managers, engineers, etc) and outdoor sports enthusiasts.A great asset for designing your mountain walking products and providing you with all our expertise.
The most important thing is to try on several sizes and styles of boots to find the one most suited to you!You can take a size above your usual one to prevent the toes from bumping into the toe box when going downhill, provided the foot is properly supported to avoid friction.Tip: keep your toenails short and, before a long descent, check that your lacing is tight enough to prevent your foot from sliding forwards inside the boot.
Some Decathlon stores have a test route.1. Try on both shoes, standing up, with the socks worn for hiking. 2. Tighten the laces, taking care to correctly balance the tightening.3. Check two points:- the heel does not come up before the boot when you walk uphill.- the foot does not slide and the toes do not press against the front when going downhill.4. Try on several sizes and models.Break them in gradually to adapt them to your foot.

A waterproof shoe will be less breathable than a non-waterproof shoe. You should therefore opt for socks like the MH500, MH520 and MH900 with a high or medium upper (adapted to the height of the shoe) to wick away perspiration and reduce friction.
The original insole in your boots is designed to accommodate most feet. A change of insole can bring:1. Improved support: some soles are preformed or reinforced to better support the arch of the foot. 2. More comfort: the insoles can also provide heat and/or cushioning.3. Longer life: restore the support and comfort of your shoes by replacing the insole each season.
- Leave to air dry.- Remove dry mud with a stiff brush.- Clean marks using a brush and some warm water- Leave to dry- Spray with a re-waterproofing product to restore the water-resistance to the upper.
