The grip of our soles is certified. To be awarded this certification, the shoes 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, the mountains, by a panel of representative testers over 500 km
In laboratories, the shoe is placed in water up to mid-upper level, on a mechanical arm that simulates a number of steps. Thanks to this test, we can determine the number of km (x steps) that the shoe can make while remaining dry. Then we confirm in real conditions, in the field and under the rain, that the shoes meet expectations.
A boot's waterproofing is often undermined by water getting in from the top of the shoe. To keep your feet dry for longer, we recommend wearing waterproof gaiters or mini-gaiters to protect the top part of the boots and prevent water, pebbles, sand, etc. from getting inside. To restore the original water repellent properties and prevent staining the outer surface, spray with a waterproof spray several times per year.
If you haven't used the product or it is unsuitable for the sport you have in mind, you have 365 days to exchange it or get a refund in all Decathlon stores.
For hiking, try taking one shoe size up from your usual to ensure optimum comfort when going downhill and to prevent your toes from hitting the toe box. Tip: Before any descent, make sure your nails are cut and check that your laces are tightened to prevent your foot from sliding forward in the shoe.
How to choose your shoes: 1. Try on both boots, while standing, with the socks worn for hiking. 2. Tighten the laces correctly 3. Check two important comfort points: the base of the heel and the front part of the foot going down. 4. Get up to walk with the shoes on. 5. Try on several sizes and several models. 6. Gradually wear in your shoes over the course of a few hikes so that they conform to your feet.
Store in a well ventilated place away from light and moisture.
All our models are tested by users representative of our target market in conditions identical to those you encounter yourself when using them. We believe that carrying out 'real-life' testing is the only way to design and continuously advance the technical relevance and design of all our Quechua products.
