WHAT IS YOUR HIKING FREQUENCY AND INTENSITY?

We have classified our products in terms of performance and features for 3 levels of Mountain Walking:
- occasional: about ten hikes a year lasting 3 to 4 hours, less than 10 km and less than 700 m incline.
- 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.

Sole: OUTDOOR CONTACT

New high performance sole with our new blend of exclusive rubber developed by our experts. More grip, more resistant. The sole design was created to give greater grip using 3D simulations and then laboratory tested to assess the grip rate on different surfaces and conditions. Final validation came from mountain field tests with a panel of testers.
30% recycled or biosourced rubber.

WATERPROOFING TEST

In a laboratory, the boot is immersed in water to mid-height on a mechanical arm that flexes to 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.
Then we confirm in the field or under the rain, that the shoe meets its promises.

EXTENDING WATERPROOF FEATURE

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, 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.

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.

BUYING TIPS / HOW DO YOU TRY YOUR BOOTS ON?

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.

HOW DO YOU AVOID BLISTERS?

Blisters generally develop when the skin is weakened by friction. In order to prevent them from occurring, we recommend the following:
- Choose a boot in your size (consult the size guide)
- Wear the right type of socks
- Lace up and tighten your boots properly
- When you wear your boots for the first time, keep the outing short

Which socks?

A waterproof shoe will be less breathable than a non-waterproof shoe. Socks like the MH500, MH520 and MH900 with a medium upper are therefore preferable for wicking away perspiration and reducing friction.

MAKE THE MOST OF YOUR SHOES: REPLACE YOUR INSOLES.

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.
