Technical information

SOLE WITH GRIP

The grip of our soles is certified.
To be awarded certification, the boots must pass laboratory tests to assess the grip rate on different surfaces (Smooth, Rugged, Dry, Wet). To validate these tests, we assess the quality of our soles in the field, in the mountains, by a panel of representative testers over 500 km

Waterproofing test

In a laboratory, the boot is immersed in water to mid-height on a mechanical arm that simulates a number of steps.
With this test we can determine a time and number of km that the boot can walk while staying dry.
- 2000 bends, about 30 minutes of hiking
- 10 000 bends, about 3 hours
- 30 000 bends, approximately 8 hours
- 50 000 bends, approximately 12 hours
Then we confirm that the boot keeps its promises in use on the ground and in the rain.

Making waterproofing last longer

To keep your feet dry, we advise you to use a waterproof gaiter or mini-gaiter to protect the top of your boots and prevent water and also pebbles and sand from getting in.
We advise re-waterproofing your boots twice a year using a re-waterproofing agent (search for ‘waterproofing’ on our Decathlon website) which will help you restore the original water-repellent qualities and help prevent stains on the outside.

EVOFIT concept

This boot is fitted with the EVOFIT concept. With its stretch materials and specific design for the area of the foot where the joints are located, EVOFIT technology allows the boot to perfectly fit the shape of your foot.

Prevents stones from getting in

This MH900 shoe has been designed to bring you maximum comfort on long, technical mountain walks. The shoe has an elastic half-gaiter to prevent small stones or twigs from getting into the shoe.

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.

BUYING TIPS / HOW DO YOU TRY YOUR BOOTS ON?

Some Decathlon stores are equipped with a test course.
1. Try on both shoes, standing up, with the socks worn for hiking. 2. Tighten the laces, taking care to correctly start 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.

Which socks?

A waterproof shoe will be less breathable than a non-waterproof shoe. You should therefore opt for socks like the MH500, MH520 and MH900 with a high or medium upper to wick away perspiration and reduce friction.

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.
