TECHNICAL INFORMATIONS

Waterproofing vs Breathability

A shoe with a waterproof and breathable membrane will generally be much less breathable than a shoe without a membrane. It is important to be aware of this if breathability is important to you.

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.

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 and half immersed in water so we can test that the inside remains perfectly dry.

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 Forclaz 500 Low Novadry boot is waterproof for 4000 flexes.

Excellent Walking Shoes
Harry (United Kingdom) Used for 7 to 12 months
I have worn my shoes almost everyday for two years (for we can't buy these in Japan) and they are still in good shape. Comfortable walking shoes - will buy some more when I return in the summer.
Not waterproof at all
Sylvain (United Kingdom) Used for 1 week or less
I have used these new shoes twice only. Each time on my way back I have crossed a field on which the low cut grass was simply wet from the morning's dew - for aprox. 5 to 8 minutes. Each time I have come back with the foot entirely wet.
I purchased them as I wanted to take them on simple winter trekking, but I won't as there is just no point.
Stable on neutral or wet terrain

I bought these to replace a similar shoe, which I have walked many miles over the past two years.
Perfect fit from day one, walked 15 miles today.

Dangerous shoes in the rain!
Dekel (China)
I bought these shoes in hangzhou and was initially very excited as they 'look' to be beautiful and high quality shoes. However, on a rainy day headed to west lake, I fell on a flat surface hurting my elbow. After, I almost fell again a few times, walking on normal streets and different kind of pavements, I was very scared to continue to walk in them. I had to be very cautious in every step I took. I was very disappointed as I choose these shoes over others in the store and other companies. These shoes were more expensive aND appeared better quality, however, they were the worst purchase I've made while travelling china! I would not recommend these shoes as they have poor grip and overall bad quality. I'm not sure where you could walk with them and feel safe if it rains!
Response of the brand
Dear Dekel, thank you for purchasing Quechua Arpenaz 500 Men's Hiking Waterproof shoes, I'm sorry that our product did not meet your demand.

As you know, different shoes have different usage. This pair of shoes is made to be used in hiking sports. The performance is the best when you are facing muddy and complicated mountain roads, while for walking in city, I won't recommend this one as it is not made for slippery city roads. You can ask the sales assistant to help you to chose the most suitable products. I'm really sorry for you bad experience. You can go to the nearest store and ask for refund/replacement. 

Thank you for your feedback, it really helps and we really appreciate it. Wish you have a nice day!

nothing negative about this product
Bad shoes for trekking in varying climate conditio
Shreyas (India) Used for More than 1 year
The shoes is very slippery when stepped on rocks which have water deposits on them. If you step on a smooth surface then chances are you are gonna slip and fall as it almost happened a couple of times for me. Very hard to manage with in slippery surfaces.
Very good shoes for summer and rough surfaces
Very bad in rainy and smooth surfaces.
Response of the brand
Hi Shreyas,

Thank you for your review on the Forclaz 500 waterproof low shoes. I am disappointed that the shoes didn't meet your needs as user satisfaction and comfort is always the focus of all stages of product development at Quechua. All our shoes are tested in use by representatives for whom the products are designed, under conditions identical to those you can find in use. In addition, we also conduct a series of laboratory tests to confirm the promise of the product. 
The larger and deeper the lugs of the footwear the better grip it will provide on tough technical terrain but at the same time compromising stickiness on smooth surface due to less contact area. But if the lugs are not deep enough or big then the grip on uneven surface is at stake. So there is always a balance between grip on uneven surface and adherence on smooth surface. You can look at the Forclaz 500 Fresh if aquatic hiking shoe is what suits your need the best.

If you feel that the shoes are not suitable for your need, please feel free to visit your nearest Decathlon store and get them exchanged/refunded. I am available in case you have any more queries.
Happy Hiking!

Bought these for walking 2-3 miles a day. good grip and waterproof, Not sure they will be comfortable for 10 miles or so as the sole is quite hard and the laces are noticeble through the relatively thin tongue. Otherwise ideal fo my purposes
kep feet dry
fairly hard sole, can feel laces
Nice product, but stitching got broken
Krishna (India) Used for 7 to 12 months
I bought this product some 8 months before and I do at-least one trek in a month. Now the stitching got broken and water will go inside the shoes. It's still under the guarantee period and not sure that, will I get it replaced?
Nice grip
Bad stitching
Response of the brand

Quechua Forclaz 500
Comfortable, good quality, very waterproof, lightweight. But they could do with better insole like gel or memory foam insoles and they could make a size 10. 9.5 to small for me and 10.5 to big. Would still recommend.
Very waterproof
