Product feature
  1. 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
  2. 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.
  3. Prolonging waterproofness
    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.
  4. 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.
  5. What boot size should I choose?
    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.
  6. Buying tips / How do you try your boots on?
    Certain Decathlon stores have a test route. 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.

  8. Which socks?
    A waterproof boot will be less breathable than a non-waterproof boot. Socks like the MH500, MH520 and MH900 with a medium upper are therefore preferable for wicking away perspiration and reducing friction.
  9. 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.
  10. How should you look after your boots?
    - Leave to air-dry. - Remove dry mud with a stiff brush. - For stains, clean with a brush and a little warm water - Leave to dry - Spray with a re-waterproofing agent to restore the water-repellent properties of the upper.
