This pair is my first starter, I bought it last year using it uphill dirt terrains in Thailand it works well sturdy and fair traction. Anyway for crossing creeks I have to use other shoes (the second pair of mine is water/hiking shoes from other brand). Arpenaz 100 Novadry is my choice .
Я купил обувь в Москве. При примерке обувь мне подходила к ноге. При прогулке пешком 1 км я ощутил что правый ботинок натирает мне пятку. Посмотрев внутренную сторону ботинка я понял, что имеется неровность внутри ботинка, скорее всего шов, который и вызывал натирание ноги. Я делаю вывод, что конструкция ботинка не продуманная. Ботинки лежат в кладовке.

Great shoe for its price. Use most days for walking the dog
I bought these shoes nearly 2 weeks ago and although the the initially felt very comfortable and sturdy after a short period of time I have noticed that the inner lining of the shoes are giving me blisters on both feet. I can usually accept that new shoes can sometimes do this, but I have never seen the problem so quickly and so severe. I'm very disappointed and will be returning the shoes before they wear a hole in my ankle.
Thanks for your review of the Arpenaz 100 men's walking shoe, I am sorry to hear you have had trouble with them. Please drop into your local store where a member of the team will assist you and we can take a look a the product.
I shall feed your comments back to the brand so they are aware of the issue when developing the model.

I like these walking shoes but there is a clicking noise in the right shoe when I walk and flex the sole of the shoe. Just bought these a couple of weeks ago so will return them for exchange.
Comfortable and sturdy
Defect in right shoe.
I wear these shoes everyday as well as for some easy day-hikes and I've been quite happy with them. The outer sole is good for easy terrain (not for rocky terrain as its a rather soft sole).
The only negative point is that after less than a year one of the fabric lace hole breaks, and then quickly after the outer fabric of the shoes started to deteriorate.
Maybe normal for rather cheap shoes, but I always hope to find good basic shoes that can last a bit longer, even while being used nearly everyday.
not strong enough (outer fabric, lace holes)
I have tried and failed to kill these. I didn't expect them to last long as they are relatively cheap. I've just bought a new pair for work as they had started to look a little too scruffy. The first pair will continue to be used for some time as there is still plenty of wear in them despite almost constant use, dog walking, hiking, scrambling etc. I have a size 5.5, usually buy a 5 but these fitted fine. I'm female but most of the women's trainers are very girlie. It's nice to be able to buy a decent pair of plain approach shoes with no pink fluffy bit on in a sensible size.
For the price they do the job. Recently wore them for 3 days walking around Copenhagen doing an average of 9 miles a day with no complaints.
Good price, waterproof. Comfortable
Excellent once broken in but blistery for the first couple of walks; laces are a bit of a pest unless tied with a double knot. Very happy feet on the whole.
Generally a good boot, but sometimes the bulky stitching round the top of the tongue digs into the top of my foot. Have to undo them and fiddle to get it to stop
Look good and are a light, waterproof walking boot
stitching round tongue a bit bulky and can dig in
