We designed this waterproof shoe at the foot of Mont Blanc for occasional mountain hikes (3-4 hours, < 10 km, < 700m altitude difference)
Outsole with grip
The grip of our soles is certified. To be awarded this certification, boots must pass laboratory tests to assess the grip level on different surfaces (Smooth, Rugged, Dry, Wet). To validate these tests, we assess the quality of our soles in the field and in the mountains, using a panel of representative testers over 500 km
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 hoursThen we confirm that the boot keeps its promises in use on the ground and in the rain.
To keep your feet dry, we advise you to use a gaiter or mini-gaiter to protect the top of your boots and prevent water and also pebbles and sand from getting inWe advise re-waterproofing your boots twice a year using a re-proofing agent (search for ‘waterproofing’ on our decathlon website) which will help you restore the original water-repellent qualities and fight against stains on the outside.
What boot size should I choose?
‘The most important thing is to try on several 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 descending, check that your lacing prevents your foot from sliding forwards inside the shoe.""
Buying tips / How do you try your boots on?
Some Decathlon stores are equipped with a test course.1. Try on both boots, while standing, 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.
Optimise the capabilities of your boots: 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 boots by replacing the insole each season.
