    Product feature
    1. 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.
    2. 3 levels of waterproofing.
      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.
    3. Shoe waterproofing level.
      The Forclaz 500 Warm boot is waterproof for 8000 flexes.
    4. SNOWCONTACT technology.
      SNOWCONTACT soles are made using a special component. Designs are optimised to provide excellent all-terrain grip and maximal traction all winter long. SNOWCONTACT soles are more effective than traditional soles on snow.
    5. Field tests.
      All our shoes undergo comfort and use tests carried out by users who are representative of our target market, in conditions identical to those found in typical use. Our Field Test Missions team up the product manager with people who aren't affiliated with QUECHUA, to test, improve, and validate our products.
    6. Measurement of the boots' thermal insulation.
      It used to be impossible to tell the exact temperature down to which your shoes would protect you. Now it can be done: the temperature limits for use are shown on your Quechua shoes. Using cold sensing tests while hiking and in the lab with a panel of customers, we measured the thermal resistance of our shoes while active and at rest. We take into account the differences in sensing cold between men and women.
    7. Lab tests.
      Laboratory tests were conducted to test the following elements: attachment of eyelets and webbing, assembly, toxicology, UV resistance, sole and upper component abrasion, accelerated ageing.

    • Great comfort and warmth

      Vishal (India)
      Used for 2 to 8 weeks
      I have used the shoes for 2+ weeks now. They fit beautifully wrapping all around the feet. The warm liner is great. I have worn them in 3-8°C without any problem. The sole slightly skid on wet hard surfaces (such as wet concrete or stone), if you are not careful placing your feet. Haven't had the chance to check the waterproofing, so far.

      I don't know, why everyone is recommending to get a size bigger. I bought my regular size and they fit nice.
      Comfortable enough to use full day
      Nothing, so far.
    • Serves the purpose perfectly

      The shoes are absolutely warm. And waterproof too. Looks is also quite fine. But the size you require is one size larger than your original size.
      I too am having a problem with the size as after wearing it with socks its getting tighter.
      I took the size as I generally use to wear but now I am having a problem wearing it.
      I bought it from my nearest store i.e. decathlon howrah and when I went to exchange the same no other sizes were available and they as an exchange were asking me to take a different product. But I was interested in taking the same and am left with no option.
      Is there any process that will help me in getting it online...it is available online
    • Good enough to buy

      Used for 1 week or less
      I am using this for 1 week. Ordered 1 size larger and it fits perfectly. Well balanced and feels good from the first use. But the actual shoe that came to me is not exactly the same as shown here. Design is slightly different. Novadry. tag is not there, instead 'waterproof' tag is attached. This is the only negative I found so far.
      Comfortable, good fit
      Novadry tag not there, design not the same.
      Response of the brand
      Hi Pritam,Thank you for your valuable feedback. I am glad that you found this product useful. As per your advice, I have mentioned in the product page that the user needs to pick one size bigger than his/her normal shoe size. Novadry is the label we use for the waterproofing feature. Since it is difficult for a customer to understand the term, we have decided to replace it with the term "Waterproof".I hope your feedback will help customers make the right choice.At your service,Varun Nair E-Sport Manager DECATHLON
