Product design: our expertise

Our Quechua global design centre is based in Passy, at the foot of Mont-Blanc in Haute Savoie. This location makes it a real meeting place for our teams (designers, product managers, engineers, etc) and outdoor sports enthusiasts. A great asset for designing your mountain walking products and providing you with all our expertise.

Which size should I select?

The most important thing is to try on several sizes and styles of boots to find the one most suited to you!
You can take a size above your usual one to prevent the toes from bumping into the toe box when going downhill, provided the foot is properly supported to avoid friction.
Tip: keep your toenails short and, before a long descent, check that your lacing is tight enough to prevent your foot from sliding forwards inside the boot.


We have classified our products in terms of performance and features for 3 levels of Mountain Walking:
- occasional: around ten hikes per year of about 3 to 4 hours’ duration, less than 10km and less than 700m of elevation gain.
- Regular: about 20 outings per year. 4 to 6 hours, 10 to 20 km, 700 to 1200m of elevation gain per outing.
- Intensive: more than 20 times a year. More than 6 hours, more than 20 km, 1200 to 2000m of elevation gain per outing.


Some Decathlon stores have a test route.
1. Try on both shoes, standing up, with the socks worn for hiking. 2. Tighten the laces, taking care to correctly balance the tightening.
3. Check two points:
- the heel does not come up before the boot when you walk uphill.
- the foot does not slide and the toes do not press against the front when going downhill.
4. Try on several sizes and models.

Break them in gradually to adapt them to your foot.


Blisters generally develop when the skin is weakened by friction. In order to prevent them from occurring, we recommend the following: - Choose a shoe in your size.
- Wear suitable socks
- Lace and tighten your shoes appropriately.
- Don’t hesitate to readjust your lace fastening during activity, particularly before beginning a climb or descent.
- Wear your shoes on a short outing on first use.


The original insole in your boots is designed to accommodate most feet. A change of insole can bring:
1. Improved support: some soles are preformed or reinforced to better support the arch of the foot. 2. More comfort: the insoles can also provide heat and/or cushioning.
3. Longer life: restore the support and comfort of your shoes by replacing the insole each season.

How should you look after your boots?

- Leave to air dry.
- Remove dry mud with a stiff brush.
- Clean marks using a brush and some warm water
- Leave to dry
- Spray with a re-waterproofing product to restore the water-resistance to the upper.
