    Product feature
    1. * Making waterproofing last longer.
      A shoe's waterproofing is often undermined by water getting in from the top of the shoe. Using waterproof gaiters or mini gaiters is therefore recommended to keep your feet dry for longer by protecting the top part of your shoes and prevent water from getting in as well as pebbles, sand, etc. Use of a re-waterproofing spray is recommended several times per year. This will help your shoes recover their original water repellent qualities and combat outer stains.
    2. Waterproofing test
      Footwear waterproofing test: Tested both in the lab and real-world usage, NOVADRY®-equipped footwear guarantees optimum waterproofing 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.
    3. Waterproofing level
      During the waterproofing test, we test 3 levels of waterproofing: 2000 flexes (around 2 hours of walking), 4000 flexes (around 4 hours of walking) and 8000 flexes (around 8 hours of walking). Of course, after this test or in use, the shoe regains its original waterproofing once dry. The Arpenaz Flex Novadry is waterproof up to 4000 flexes.

      Wore these for these for the first time in heavy rain. Got splashed from a puddle and my toes were wet within the first few minutes of wearing them. Very disappointing! On the upside, they are very comfortable.
      I would not recommend these shoes if you are particularly looking for something that is waterproof.

      Response of the brand
      Hello Malhar,
      Thank you for your feedback on the hiking shoes. I apologise for the inconvenience caused as I believe that the shoes you purchased are defective. I request you to visit your nearest Decathlon store to have them replaced or refunded. I would also recommend that you use hiking boots with ankle support for more technical treks in the Himalayas. You could look at either the Forclaz 100 High or the Forclaz 500 High.

      Have the same problem as another reviewer, the tongue is very uncomfortable despite trying to adjust it.
      Perfect size and width. Good grip.
      Tongue on shoe digs in, will have to return them.
