    Product feature
    1. Footwear waterproofing test.
      Tested in laboratory and in use, these shoes, equipped with a Waterproof membrane, will ensure optimal impermeability 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.
    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). Of course, after this test or in use, the shoe regains its original waterproofing once dry.
    3. Shoe waterproofing level.
      The TREK 500 hoe is validated on the impermeability test in 8000 flexions or 16 km walk in water up to mid-upper.
    4. Lab tests
      Laboratory tests were conducted to test the following elements: - torn hooks and eyelets - bonding of the sole - toxicology - UV resistance - abrasion of the sole and of the components of the upper - accelerated aging.
    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 with a nourishing cream to keep good leather flexibility and extend the lifespan of the shoe.
    6. Buying tips
      Try on both shoes, standing up, with the socks worn for hiking. Try on several models or sizes if necessary. Check two comfort points: the base of the heel and the front part of the foot going down. Avoid all pressure points when trying them on. Don't hesitate to walk around the store. Gradually start using you shoes during your first few hiking trips to break them in.

    • Great value boots

      Graham (United Kingdom)
      Used for 2 to 8 weeks
      So far so good , I’ve worn them a lot during the bad weather of late , they are comfortable, weather proof highly recommended
    • It is not good for long hiking

      SUBBRAMMANYA (India)
      Used for 7 to 12 months
      I went to Brahmagiri in Coorg with this shoe, waterproof is good, grip is good, but CUSHIONING is very very bad, it was just 29km trek and I ended up with blisters, knee pain, my running shoe was very comfortable in my previous trekking in kumaraparvatha, the PU midsole' is very hard it didn't help even after wearing gel insole, this shoe is not for trekking, don't buy.
      Response of the brand
      Hello Subbrammanya,

      Thanks for your time to review the Trek 500 shoes by Quechua. I apologize for the inconvenience caused to you.

      To give you a small insight on this product and the reason that could be possible for the issue you face, the Trek 500 has a midsole added with an extra shank on it which reduces the feel of your feet on the ground and hence you feel its lesser cushioning, This is done to increase the durability of this shoe on longer treks and not to lose out the property of cushioning in the longer run. In case your usage requires you to have the roll of foot feel, I request you kindly to check out the Trek 100 shoe which gives a feel of better cushioning and is for less intense usage compared to the other and is durable also on this kind of usage. Personally, I use the Trek 100 shoe as I require the same feature you have mentioned.

      I request you kindly to visit any of our stores closer to you and seek for an exchange or refund against the current shoe you have. I stay available if you need any further assistance with our products or services in the future.

    • มันคุ้มราคามาก แต่อาศัยระยะเวลาเบรคอินนานหน่อย

      Thanyavi (Thailand)
      Used for 2 to 8 weeks
      บูทคู่แรกในชีวิต ไม่เคยใช้บูทมาก่อน คนรอบตัวก็ไม่มีใครมีบูทเหมือนกัน ซื้อเพื่อไปเทรกกิ้งที่เยอรมนีเมื่อต้น ธ.ค. 60 มา พวกเส้นทางสำรวจธรรมชาติต่าง ๆ วันละ 5-7 กม. ติดกันทุกวัน 1 สัปดาห์ ทางราบบ้าง ทางขึ้นลงเนินบ้าง พบว่ามันใช้เดินลุยหิมะได้สบาย เพราะทั้งไม่ลื่น ไม่เปียก และไม่หนาว แต่วันหลัง ๆ เริ่มเจ็บตรงเหนือตาตุ่มนอก ขวามากกว่าซ้าย เจ็บมากขึ้นเรื่อย ๆ จนเกือบเดินไม่ไหว ก็เลยมาสังเกตว่าเวลาเดิน จังหวะส้นเท้ากระทบพื้น (heel strike) หนังของรองเท้าส่วนที่มันหุ้มเอ็นร้อยหวาย (ข้าง ๆ ห่วงสีเหลือง) มันยังแข็งอยู่ แล้วมันจิกเข้าไปในตาตุ่มนอก พอแก้ไขด้วยการพับ/บีบ/นวด/กด/คลึง/พับ/พับ/พับไปมาตร
      นั้นจนหนังมันนิ่มลง + แปะแผ่นพลาสเตอร์กันเสียดสีตรงที่เจ็บ + ทายาแก้ปวดตอนกลางคืน มันก็ค่อย ๆ หายจนวันหลัง ๆ เดินคล่องเหมือนเดิม ทำซ้ำกันทั้งข้างซ้ายขวา หลังจากนั้นก็ไม่มีปัญหาอีก

      ชอบมากอีกอย่างตรงที่ห่วงตรงเหนือข้อเท้าขึ้นไป มันเปลี่ยนจากรูร้อยเชือกเป็นตะขอแบบเปิดด้วย เวลาถอดสะดวกมากกก แค่ดึงให้หลุดจากขอก็หลุดละ ส่วนเวลาใส่ก็แค่ไขว้ไปไขว้มา ชอบจริง
      Response of the brand
      ขอบคุณ คุณลูกค้า สำหรับ review ในตัวสินค้าครับ สำหรับเรื่องบาดเจ็บตรงบริเวณเหนือตาตุ่มนั้น ผมขออนุญาติแนะนำเพิ่มเติม ลูกค้าสามารถป้องกันอาการบาดเจ็บที่จะเกิดขึ้น โดยเลือกใช้ถุงเท้าสำหรับ trekking รุ่น Forcalz 500 High ซึ่งจะมีระบบ support บริเวณ ปลายเท้า ส้นเท้า นิ้วโป้ง นิ้วก้อย และบริเวณตาตุ่ม ซึ่งจะมีความหนาและนุ่มเป็นพิเศษเพื่อป้องกันการบาดเจ็บ รวมไปถึงบริเวณหลังเท้า และหน้าแข็ง ที่มีความยืดหยุ่นมากกว่าถุงเท้าปกติทั่วไปด้วยครับ

    • Very comfortable however not waterproof

      Harvi (United Kingdom)
      Used for More than 1 year
      I have owned these boots for almost 18 months and I must say they are very comfortable. However this weekend I went up Mount Snowden only to find the rain had penetrated the boot, so I was walking with wet feet in snow conditions, not a pleasant experience. Having double checked the specs of the boot, it confirms it is waterproof and comes with a 2 year guarantee. However as I've owned the boots for 18 months now I do not have the receipt. Having called the store where I purchased the boots from, they advised without the receipt they were not willing to do anything. I offered to show proof of purchase via a bank statement of which they reiterated without the receipt nothing would happen. Very disappointed with the quality of the boot and now the customer service. I'm due to go to Iceland tomorrow and now in a position where I have to buy another pair of boots. Prior to this weekends experience these boots would have scored a 5* rating.
