    Product feature
    1. Footwear waterproofing test.
      Footwear waterproofing test: tested in laboratory and actual usage conditions, the shoes are equipped with waterproof and breathable membrane to provide optimal protection from rain. 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. 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.
    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). The Arpenaz 50 children's shoe is waterproof for 2000 flexes.
    3. 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.
    4. Buying Tips
      Allow children to 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 allow then to walk around the store. Make children gradually break into the shoes when first worn so that they adapt to their feet.
    5. Which size should I select?
      For hiking, do not hesitate to buy one size larger than the usual size to guarantee excellent comfort on the descent and to avoid toes rubbing at the tip of the shoe. Recommendation: nails must be cut short, and before descending, check that the laces stop the foot from slipping forward to the front of the shoe.
    6. 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 the product manager up with people who are unaffiliated with Quechua, to test, improve and validate our products.
    7. Laboratory tests
      Further 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.

      These were bought for my two boys as there fist step in to outdoor walking. As they are known for destroying shoes just by looking at them its a pleasant supprise to see how well made they are and up until now lasting really well. I would highly recommend these I just covered them with water proofer and and away you go.

      Response of the brand
      Hi Clare,

      I am sorry to hear about your negative experience with the Arpenaz 50 Children Waterproof Hiking Shoe. All of our waterproof shoes are tested in a laboratory setting as well as in the field to validate their waterproofness. The Arpenaz 50 Children Waterproof Hiking Shoe is tested for up to two hours of walking in wet ground. If the product was used for less than two hours and still failed then there must be a manufacturing default. I would advise you to travel to your nearest Decathlon store for an exchange or a refund. Alternatively you can return your item by post by following the instructions here: https://www.decathlon.co.uk/return-order-by-post.html
