    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.

      Fernandez (India)
      Used for 3 to 6 months
      i used this on a trek to Goechala in October and extremely dissatisfied with the shoes. it is very hard on your foot sole with very little flexibility. The sole molding is also coming off in some places and i wouldn't take this for another trek

      Thank you for your review of the Quechua Trek 500 boot. We are sorry to hear that the quality did not meet the requirements. As with all Quechua products we offer a two year warranty. I would recommend exchanging these at your local Decathlon. We are sorry for the inconvenience.

      Roger (United Kingdom)
      Used for 2 to 8 weeks
      I walk my German Shepherd dogs on the surrounding hills for 3 to 5 Miles everyday and I have spent hundreds if not thousands of pounds over the years on waterproof boots, from top brand names to the less well known. To-date there is not one brand that In my experience has met the criteria of being “waterproof and breathable.”
      These boots have a robust feel, the eyelets are functional and the leather is firm without being too hard. I am a little concerned that the soles are quite rigid and might not provide much grip on stone. The first wear was for a gentle 3 miles and no blisters. Time will tell whether these will be the boots to end my search.
    • Faulty Product

      Rishi Raj (India)
      Used for 1 week or less
      Extremely faulty product. Water seeped in from everywhere - we bought two pairs and were forced to exchange them. Even the store manager at Decathalon was surprised to see the state of the shoes - and this state was only after 1 day in rain.
    • Reasonable OK product

      DEEPAK (India)
      Used for More than 1 year
      Bought it for seven thousand INR. It worked well on first two hikes (5 days and 3 days). But in the third hike, I saw the inside sole tearing off from both sides in the middle. In the last 14 months I have had it, the total no. of days I have worn it is less than a month! I am not sure if the insole should come lose over such limited usage. The shoe is fine and the grip is good, but the tearing off of the insole is a dampener. On op of that, the price is quite expensive. Had this been a 3000 rs. shoe, I would not have made this comment.
