TECHNICAL INFORMATIONS

Outsole with grip

Certified sole grip. To be awarded this certification, footwear must pass laboratory tests to assess their traction 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 over 500 km using a panel of representative testers.

Waterproofing test

In a lab, the shoe is immersed in water to mid height while on a mechanical arm that simulates walking.
We use this test to determine how long and how far the shoe can walk and still stay dry.
- 2,000 flexes, about 30 minutes of hiking
- 10,000 flexes, about 3 hours
- 30,000 flexes, about 8 hours
- 50,000 flexes, about 12 hours
We then take the shoe outside in the rain to confirm it holds up as expected.

Making waterproofing last longer

To keep your feet dry, we suggest you wear waterproof gaiters or mini-gaiters to protect the top of your shoes and prevent water from getting in, along with stones and sand.

We recommend you re-waterproof your shoes twice a year using a waterproofing agent (search for ‘waterproofing’ on www.decathlon.ca), which will help you restore the original water-repellent properties and help prevent stains on the outside.

Evofit Concept

This shoe is made using the Evofit concept. With its stretch materials and specific design for the area of the foot where joints are located, Evofit technology allows the shoe to perfectly conform to the shape of your foot.

What shoe size should you choose?

The most important thing is to try on several sizes and styles to find the one most suited to you!
Choose one size up from your usual size so your toes don't bump the toe box when going downhill, as long as you still have the proper support to prevent friction.
Tip: keep your toenails short and, before a long descent, check that your laces are tight enough to keep your foot from sliding forward in the shoe.

Buying tips / How do you try your shoes on?

Some Decathlon stores have a test trail.
1. Try on both shoes, while standing, wearing your hiking socks. 2. Tighten the laces evenly.
3. Check two points:
- your heel doesn't lift up before the shoe when walking uphill.
- your foot doesn't slide and your toes don't touch the front when going downhill.
4. Try on several sizes and models.

Break them in gradually to adapt them to your feet.

Which socks?

Waterproof shoes are less breathable than non-waterproof shoes. So you'll want socks like the MH500 with a medium-length upper for wicking away perspiration and reducing friction.

Optimize your shoes: replace your insoles!

The original insole in your shoes is designed to fit most feet. Changing the insole may provide:
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 warmth and/or cushioning.
3. Longer life: restore your shoes' support and comfort by replacing the insole each season.

How to care for your shoes

- 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 upper's water resistance.

Great shoes at a reasonable price. Comfortable from day one. My second pair to replace a worn out pair. Better than more expensive brands.

Traction can be enhanced further, slippery on some wet grounds eg paths with pebbles finish, wooden paths with algae, aluminum checkered plates, manhole covers.
Response of the brand
Hello Lek Woh,

Thank you for the review about our product: " Men's waterproof mountain hiking shoes - MH500 - Grey".
 These are MOUNTAIN HIKING (MH) shoes (thus the use of the acronym MH500 to the model description) and they are very much suitable for MOUNTAIN hiking or MOUNTAIN trekking trails, not so much for casual or daily wear on the modern-day town terrains of aluminium checkered plates on the road or pathway, for instance. You hardly find an aluminium checkered plates on a mountain hiking or mountain trekking trails. These shoes are with outer soles that have traction lugs that grip unto the soil/ground to give it that support. Even in a hiking/trekking trails where there are roots and pebbles with algae that could be very slippery, which are common, to depend on the shoes alone for support and balance (since the traction lugs would not be able to grip to the soil due to these obstacles) is quite an incomplete conceptual thing to do in the said sports of hiking/trekking: In hiking/trekking there is a need for support of other gears to be used too, in this instance hiking sticks or trekking poles become a necessities to complement the hiking/trekking experience in providing good balance & support. And in cases where the trails could be of obstacles needing more than a single gear (mere hiking/trekking shoes alone not enough) to tackle (e.g river-crossing) - then wet shoes become the supplement, and so on and so on, in accordance of the hiking/trekking terrains we are dealing with. Should this shoes be used as a casual or daily day-to-day use in a modern day road or terrains, it would definitely not meant to be built for that purpose.
Nevertheless, we indeed value your honest feedback, Lek Woh and we will certainly relay these collated feedback to our Quechua Design & Brand Team for their reference in their continuous improvement efforts. Thank you so much for taking time to let us know of your opinion.
We hope to see you soon, when our Stores are allowed to  be re-opened, hopefully soonest. 
But meantime, stay safe and take care, Lek Woh.

Stay healthy, keep fit & stay happy at home, during this circuit-breaker time!

Really good quality and comfortable walking shoe. Obviously water can enter the top of the shoe in heavy rain but the material itself does a really good job of keeping water out.
Good price

Very happy with these walking shoes, these are my second pair for when the first finally wear out. Best walking shoes I've had over many years and different makes, you can happily use then all winter, through wet fields and even near totally submerge them and your feet will still be dry.
Absolutely 'do the job' trekking shoes

Bopught these for a holiday in Costa Rice and delighted with the performance. They had great grip on all outdoor surfaces and kept my feet dry across really saturated and slippery ground in rain forest areas. They have lots of cushioning and even with thick socks on were fine in 33C heat and close to 100% humidity. Lighter and freer than a full walking boot but still lots of confidence to tackle the rough stuff.
Pleased so far.
