Technical Informations

Footwear waterproofing test.
The footwear is laboratory and field tested to ensure optimal waterproofing and breathability. The boots are first immersed in water while air pressure is applied to check that no bubbles form on the surface of the footwear. Next, shoes are fitted to a mechanical arm that simulates walking and half immersed in water so we can test that the inside remains perfectly dry.
3 levels of waterproofing.
In the waterproofing tests, we test 3 levels of waterproofing, with 2,000 flexes (approx. a 4 km walk), 4000 flexes (approx. an 8 Km walk) and 8000 flexes (approx. a 16 Km walk). Of course, after this test or in use, the shoe regains its original waterproofing once dry.
Level of waterproofing of the boot.
Arpenaz 500 Warm boots are waterproof for 4000 flexes.
Field tests.
All our shoes undergo comfort and use tests carried out by users who are representative of our target market, in conditions identical to those found in typical use. In our field tests, the product manager works with people outside QUECHUA to test, improve, and approve our products.
Measurement of the boots' thermal insulation.
It used to be impossible to tell the exact temperature down to which your shoes would protect you. Now it can be done: the temperature limits for use are shown on your Quechua boots. We worked with a panel of customers to measure the thermal resistance of our shoes, during activity and at rest, using cold sensing tests, both in the field and the lab. We take into account the differences in sensing cold between men and women.
Lab tests.
Laboratory tests were conducted to test the following elements: attachment of eyelets and webbing, assembly, toxicology, UV resistance, sole and upper component abrasion, accelerated ageing.

Men’s Hiking Boot
Used for 2 to 8 weeks
This is the 6th pair we have bought over 5 year we have had this boot for my son growing feet. Warm, comfortable especially in the snow. Good grip. We all have a pair.
Love them
Used for 2 to 8 weeks
I'm female but these to me are unisex if you are not in to feminine boots that is, They are VERY warm and the leg of the boot is soft so no rubbing, the zip can be tricky as someone else posted but put your knee forward and the boot on the toe and the zip works fine. I recommended them to both men and woman. Great boot great price.
Great snow boots
Used for 2 to 8 weeks
Best value of money I work as a delivery driver and these boots are just right - you can compare with motorbike boots worth hundred of pounds
Love these boots
Used for 1 week or less
I bought these boots because I needed something warm ( like a moon boot ) to keep my feet warm in the snow. I wasn't disappointed. I also bought them with some cushioning gel sole inners (46165) from Decathlon and I am very please with them. The reason people cannot do them up easily, is that you have to lean your legs forward, like when resting in ski boots, to do the zip up and down, but once you have the hang of that, they are easily put on and taken off again. Nice and warm. I'll only use them for a couple of weeks a year, so hopefully, they'll last me a good few years.
Great Value

Warm and cosy
Used for 2 to 8 weeks
Have bought 3 pairs of these warm and comfortable boots for my 12 and 14 year old boys and myself. So comfortable. And very lightweight.
Easy to put on
Used for 2 to 8 weeks
Usual good decathlon price and quality, a bit sung fit with ski socks.
Could not do up the zip
Nice product.Fitted my foot okay.Right size.The problem I had because the zip was at an angle and me and another customer could not zip up the boot.So sadly returned the items The product looked great.We tried a size above but the same problem.Nothing wrong with the zip off the foot it worked.I think it has been to tight over the ankle causing the problem
