Wife loves these boots, fit like slippers.
I have been going on lengthy walks in lockdown but as the weather was getting wet I decided to upgrade to waterproof boots. These boots seemed comfortable when I tried them in the store but they have caused me terrible pain which forced me to stop going on walks. This is frustrating as it’s one of the few things we can do in lockdown. Let me be clear that I have never suffered from any foot pain and haven’t torn or broken any bones/tendons ever. These boots gave me the worst Achilles heel pain ever (Achilles tendinitis). The pain started gradually and got to the point that I could not get in those boots and walk. I was limping as if I had a fracture. I bought some insoles but this did not make any difference. The minute I stopped wearing and switched to some new balance trainers the pain went away. But it took me various days of rest to get there.
I think these boots are very hard and do not absorb any shock, hard surfaces. They do not offer enough support and have been an absolute waste of money. I would not recommend these buy something else. I used to own the cheaper version of the Quechua ones and they were half the price and much better. The reason I went for these is because these are waterproof.
Best shoes for trekking
It's very weighty to track, i have injured my nail while coming down from Hill.
A must buy for all trekkers.... High ankle grip prevents ankle twist... Cross contact grips prevents slipping. Ignore the price.. it's pure quality
I don't know where the issue is, but the shoe caused extreme pain around my big toe area despite there being enough wriggle room from the top and front. Especially while descending, I would scream inside everytime my toe bumped against the front of the shoe, but even while while walking straight, it was nowhere near comfortable. I hobbled around after taking the shoes off and it took a whole night's sleep for my feet to feel normal before the show started again the next day. I'm just thankful I wore them on a really rough bike ride and camping trip to Spiti and not an actual hike/trek or I would have come back with serious trauma to my feet.
It did settle down after wearing them continuously for at least 8 hours for almost a month, but that's a very long break-in period by any standards (and also the fact that these were the only hiking shoes I was carrying). Apart from that, the shoe holds firm, no slippage, and seems like it will last long.
I just wish it was more of a pleasure to wear.
Brought the shoe for my daughter for a trek in Uttarakhand. The soles were sturdy and comfortable, Is water proof and is insulated enough to keep her feet warm.
The laces snag on the eye hooks causing feet to tie together and you fall over!
