CrossContact Sole offering an excellent compromise between dry and muddy terrain
The Evofit concept ensures good support, whatever your foot shape.
Easy opening / closing
Quick, easy lacing that can be adjusted at any time.
Every aspect has been optimised to lighten your walks: 275 g the shoe in size 39
Full cushioning thanks to its EVA mid-sole along the entire foot.
We designed the sole based on long research at our laboratories, combined with a specific rubber formulation to offer the best compromise between grip and traction. The design of the FH500 Helium sole gives more adhesion than traction. Definition > Traction: prevents slipping on soft ground (muddy or dry). Grip: not slipping on hard ground (wet or dry).
275 g per shoe in size 6
Try on both shoes, standing up, with the socks worn for hiking. Try on several models, several sizes if required. Check two comfort points: the base of the heel and the front part of the foot going down. Avoid all pressure points when trying them on. Always walk around the store. Gradually wear in your shoes over the course of a few hikes so that they conform to your feet.
If you buy your shoes online, try them on (see instructions below) as soon as you receive them.
You can return the product or ask your nearest Decathlon store if you are uncertain of the size.
What size should you choose?
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: keep your nails short and, before making your descent, check that your lacing prevents your foot from sliding towards the front of the boot.
All our shoes are tested for initial comfort and comfort in use by typical users and under the same conditions found in use. Our Mission Tests bring together the product manager with people who are not affiliated with Quechua to test, develop and approve the products.
Other laboratory tests are also conducted to validate the following elements: torn eyelets and straps, bonding, toxicology, UV resistance, abrasion of the sole and the components of the upper, accelerated ageing.
