NW 500: interview with a pioneer
“My dream? Find an owner who loves me as much as I love them.”
My nickname is NW 500 - cute isn't it?
I arrived in the stores in July 2017 on a little shelf of the department, reserved just for me!
I may not have won a beauty contest yet, but I have everything a Nordic walker needs: top flexibility, grip for all surfaces and comfortable cushioning.
The little extras? built-in gaiters to keep little stones out and a place for storing your laces and stop them dragging on the ground, so you don't lose time.
What is Nordic walking?
Nordic walking is performed with special walking poles on all gently sloping surfaces to tone the whole body.
What are the benefits of Nordic walking?
Nordic walking is good for overall fitness and can be enjoyed by everyone. It tones the body, improves breathing, helps with weight loss and strengthens the bones. As well as all the physical benefits, practising this outdoor sport also contributes to a feeling of well-being. For more information, please visit www.newfeel.com
Why is it important to choose a special shoe for Nordic walking?
In Nordic walking, the heel hits the ground first and then the foot rolls through to the toes, which propel you forwards. Our shoes guarantee optimal flexibility and reinforced cushioning at the heel and under the metatarsals (the areas most used when walking).
What is the Flex-H concept?
Flex-H technology is a system of three flex grooves in an H-shape located at the forefoot.
Studies undertaken in Decathlon SportsLab have identified the metacarpophalangeal joints are both the flexion zone and the main support zone of the foot in fitness walking. Thus, our design teams placed flex grooves on both sides of this joint in order to help walking while remaining comfortable.
What pair of shoes should I choose in case of rainy weather?
Mesh textiles are very aerated and are not fit for practice in rainy weather. We advise you to choose the NW580 shoes. You will receive the necessary waterproofing thanks to their fabric and treatment.
The environmental impact of the product is calculated during the design process according to the components used to produce it. An overall score from A to E is given to help you easily identify the more eco-friendly products by comparing products of the same type.

To ensure your feet are comfortable:
- Choose the right shoe size. When walking, you do not necessarily need to take one size up.
- Choose a shoe whose shape is suitable for your foot
- Adjust/tighten the laces to ensure your foot is supported properly and don't hesitate to re-lace your shoes during your walk
- Avoid new socks when wearing your new shoes for the first time
- Use socks which are higher than the built-in sock liner
