    Product feature
    1. Crosscontact sole
      The design of the soles has been the subject of extensive research in our laboratories, combined with a specific rubber formulation to offer the best compromise between grip and traction. The design of the sole of the Forclaz 500 Helium will offer more traction than grip. Traction: Consists of not sliding into loose ground (flat or hilly). Adhesion: consists of not slipping when on hard ground (wet or dry).
    2. 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.
    3. What size to choose?
      When taking up hiking, do not hesitate to take a size above your usual shoe size to guarantee an optimal comfort when walking downhill and to avoid your toes rubbing the tops of the shoe. Tip: Before any descent, make sure your nails are cut and check that your laces are tied to prevent your foot from sliding forward in the shoe.

    • Changing review to 1 start due to price rise

      thomas (United Kingdom)
      Used for More than 1 year
      So these shoes are actually not to bad , comfortable for short walks and also i use these for cycling. Im very irritated to find though on going back to store just to buy them again they has been a 20% price rise now £49 rather than the £39 they were orignally bought for .
    • Can't afford to loose out from foot

      VIKAS (India)
      Used for 1 week or less
      Forclaz 500 helium are the best hiking shoes even to the point that for daily usage they are awesome. Excellent comfort, breathability and at same time sturdy too. Whether tarmac, terrian, grass it goes like anything.
      Only thing if plastic grips for laces and mesh are strong enough to hold for the duration as subjected to warranty.
    • Very good 10/10

      Marc-andre (China)
      Used for 1 week or less
      Very comfortable, good grip and nice lacing system ( very useful since I often need to remove my shoes ). I didn't use them for outdoor activities yet but I'm pretty confident they will do the job.
    • You will get cramps into your feet

      Keval (India)
      Used for 2 to 8 weeks
      As suggested by staff I bought one size bigger than my regular size. During trial it was comfortable, but during actual tracking it was not comfortable. My leg was paining in entire track. I didn't had alternative so at the end of track I got cramps in my leg.
      Response of the brand
      Hello Mr. Keval,

      Thanks for your feedback on the Forclaz 500 Helium shoes by Quechua. I apologize for the inconvenience caused to you.

      To put some light on the usage of this product, the Forclaz 500 Helium shoes are designed for hiking(one day) on the mountains offering good grip, support and cushioning. The shoe is equipped with the feature of EVOFIT concept which offers a superior fit and support for any type of foot, quick lacing for easy and snug fit. The shoe does not live up to the promise when used for different purpose/usage as it is not equipped to perform on that terrain (Ex: Trekking, several days). I apologize for the inconvenience caused to you and request you kindly to visit any of the stores closer to you and get this product exchanged. 

      Meanwhile, if you could let me know your usage, I would be glad to recommend the right product suited for your usage. I stay available if you need any further assistance with our products or services in the future.
