Sole with grip
The grip of our soles is certified. To be awarded certification, the shoes must pass laboratory tests to assess the grip rate on different surfaces (Smooth, Rugged, Dry, Wet). To validate these tests, we assess the quality of our soles in the field, in the mountains, by a panel of representative testers over 500 km
WHICH SIZE SHOULD YOU CHOOSE?
The most important thing is to try on several sizes and styles of shoes to find the one most suited to you!
You can take a size above your usual one to prevent the toes from bumping into the toe box when going downhill, provided the foot is properly supported to avoid friction.
Tip: keep your toenails short and, before a long descent, check that your lacing is tight enough to prevent your foot from sliding forwards inside the shoe.
Buying tips / how do you try your shoes on?
Some Decathlon stores have a test route.
1. Try on both shoes, standing up, with the socks worn for hiking.
2. Tighten the laces, taking care to correctly balance the tightening.
3. Check two points:
- the heel does not come up before the shoe when you walk uphill.
- the foot does not slide and the toes do not press against the front when going downhill.
4. Try on several sizes and models.
Break them in gradually to adapt them to your foot.
All our shoes are tested for initial comfort and comfort in use by hikers (who do not work for Decathlon) under the same conditions you will encounter yourself when hiking. The aim is to further develop the product and validate it as objectively as possible, for your greatest satisfaction.
Further 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.
Optimise the capabilities of your shoes: replace your insoles!
The original insole in your shoes is designed to accommodate most feet. A change of insole can bring:
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 heat and/or cushioning.
3. Longer life: restore the support and comfort of your shoes by replacing the insole each season.
