I went walking in Snowdonia with 2 friends, I was wearing these boots. After an hour or so of walking in just rain, with no submergence in water, I felt the first signs of moisture in my socks. This would get worse until I was walking with what felt like two bags of water on my feet. This may prove that they are in fact waterproof - as long as the water is inside the boot! This wasn't the worst issue though, you half expect wet feet when walking in the wet. The main concern was that the soles were so slippery. Following in the footsteps of two other people on the exact same terrain (one in army boots, one in quality walking boots), I was constantly the one whose feet shot out from underneath him! This was annoying at best, and downright dangerous at worst. Worst still was the fact that the grip was not predictable - one dodgy looking rock would give you rock solid grip, the next tame looking one would be like stepping onto black ice! I feel lucky not to have fallen badly and ended up needing emergency rescue, and won't be taking these boots to places where performance is important again. If you want a pair of comfy boots to walk around the city, and don't mind your feet getting wet if it rains, go ahead!
Walked in them every day for 9 days up the Himalayas. Extremely comfortable. Didn't get to test them in the wet as it was very dry there. Definitely value for money imo.
I've had these boots for 10 months now but they have never been waterproof. In the beginning i couldn't tell if the moisture in my socks was sweat or the boots were leaking. More recently it's became clear it's the water getting in. They have been very well looked after, they look just like new but now walking in even short wet grass gets my feet soaked. If you want waterproof boots do yourself a favour and avoid these.
As per the titles these boots are definitely not waterproof. Spend more or go elsewhere.
I have only had these boots six months but they already let in water. They claim to be waterproof but a half hour walk through wet grass leaves me with wet feet. I use them twice a day, every day, to walk my dog. Mostly on tarmac or grass, not a very demanding terrain. Very dissapointed.
Bought a pair of these a week ago. Very comfortable, stylish and light boot. Great for walking, but first time I wore them in wet grass, the right boot let in water just above the inside of the sole. I assumed it must have been a defective boot, so took them back to Decathlon yesterday and no problem getting them exchanged. Just come back from wearing them for the first time (2 mile dog walk) again, in wet grass and gain came back with wet socks. (Both feet this time) Looks like another 50 mile round trip to Decathlon Nottingham!! Won't be getting another pair. Either a defective batch, or they shouldn't be advertised as waterproof.
I’ve had these boots for 14 months now and I only/use them for cycling to work. I purchased them for their light weight and waterproof properties. Although the boots still look in good condition they have started to let in moisture and are no longer water proof. I will not recommend these.
Coming apart after 3 months and can't be returned as I use them for work! Disappointing.
Boots are very good value and do the job.
As stated, it's a very comfortable boot, handles skippy surfaces but walking through tall grass for long periods of time and your waterproof boot isn't so waterproof. Maybe they need to improve the seal to prevent this but for me, if you want a boot that's realistically splash proof and not waterproof then this will do
after walking in dew wet grass, the boots started to leak in at the toe area, i couldnt recommend these boots enough if you are walking in the dry, super comfortable, and grippy, and stylish, but are not waterproof
Hi there, I just went to Scotland for Easter break and do some hiking... Therefore I ordered your Mountain walking shoes MH500 for this occasion. However after the first hiking day, the right shoe completely cracked on a side (I have picture as a prove) I didn't expect that the shoes crack after only one day using... Therefore as a loyal customer, I expect a full refund or a new pair of shoes? Looking forward to hearing from you
Bought for my son he said he loves them and they are so comfortable
Good value for money really comfortable and waterproof.
I bought these men’s boots as the women’s were a little to snugg and my toes would touch the end if I was going down hill. They are very comfortable good cushioning and wider than women’s.
CrossContact is the Decathlon label that ensures our soles have good grip. To benefit from this the shoe must pass laboratory tests to evaluate the grip rating on different surfaces (Smooth, Rough, Dry, Wet). To validate these tests, we have the quality of our soles assessed over 500 km on the ground and in the mountains by a representative panel of testers
In laboratories, the shoe is placed in water up to mid-upper level, on a mechanical arm that simulates a number of steps. Thanks to this test, we can determine the number of km (x steps) that the shoe can make while remaining dry. Then we confirm in real conditions, in the field and under the rain, that the shoes meet expectations.
A boot's waterproofing is often undermined by water getting in from the top of the shoe. To keep your feet dry for longer, we recommend wearing waterproof gaiters or mini-gaiters to protect the top part of the boots and prevent water, pebbles, sand, etc. from getting inside. To restore the original water repellent properties and prevent staining the outer surface, spray with a waterproof spray several times per year.
If you haven't used the product or it is unsuitable for the sport you have in mind, you have 365 days to exchange it or get a refund in all Decathlon stores.
For hiking, try taking one shoe size up from your usual to ensure optimum comfort when going downhill and to prevent your toes from hitting the toe box. Tip: Before any descent, make sure your nails are cut and check that your laces are tightened to prevent your foot from sliding forward in the shoe.
To choose the correct boot: 1. Try on both boots, while standing, with the socks worn for hiking. 2. Tighten the laces correctly3. Check two important comfort points: the base of the heel and the front part of the foot going down.4. Stand up and walk around with the shoes on.5. Try several sizes and styles. 6. Gradually wear in your shoes over the course of a few hikes so that they conform to your feet.
