Technical Information

Footwear waterproofing test.
Footwear waterproofing test: laboratory- and field-tested, shoes with a breathable, waterproof membrane ensure you have optimum protection from the rain. Our Field Test Missions team up the product manager with people who aren't affiliated with QUECHUA, to test, improve, and validate our products.Next, shoes are fitted to a mechanical arm that simulates walking and half immersed in water so we can test that the inside remains perfectly dry.
3 levels of waterproofing
During the waterproofing test, we test 3 levels of waterproofing: 2000 flexes (around 2 hours of walking), 4000 flexes (around 4 hours of walking) and 8000 flexes (around 8 hours of walking). The Arpenaz 50 children's shoe is waterproof for 2000 flexes.
Making waterproofing last longer
A shoe's waterproofing is often undermined by water getting in from the top of the shoe. Using waterproof gaiters or mini gaiters is therefore recommended to keep your feet dry for longer by protecting the top part of your shoes and prevent water from getting in as well as pebbles, sand, etc. Use of a re-waterproofing spray is recommended several times per year. This will help your shoes recover their original water repellent qualities and combat outer stains.
Buying tips
Allow children to try on both shoes, standing up, with the socks worn for hiking. Try on several models or sizes if necessary. 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. Feel free to make them walk around the store. Make sure children break the shoes in gradually so that they adapt to their feet.
What size should I choose?
For hiking, do not hesitate to buy one size larger than the usual size to guarantee excellent comfort on the descent and to avoid toes rubbing at the tip of the shoe. Tip: nails must be cut short, and before descending, check that the laces stop the foot from slipping forward to the front of the shoe.
Field tests
All our shoes are tested for user comfort and field tested by users who represent the target market in conditions identical to those found in typical use. Moreover, our "Missions Tests" put the product manager in contact with people who are not affiliated with Quechua to test, develop and validate the products.
Laboratory testing
Other laboratory tests are also conducted to approve the quality of the following components: Arpenaz 100 high Warm shoes are waterproof for 2,000 flexes.

Brilliant shoes, my son loves them, can't stop running around in them. He loved the bright colour of them. Fit perfectly and really grippy.
Great shoes
Used for 3 to 6 months
My son wears out shoes quickly but these are the most durable ones we have had.
They take a lot of punishment and clean up well plus they are a lot cheaper than what we usually buy.

These were bought for my two boys as there fist step in to outdoor walking. As they are known for destroying shoes just by looking at them its a pleasant supprise to see how well made they are and up until now lasting really well. I would highly recommend these I just covered them with water proofer and and away you go.

Response of the brand
Hi Clare,

I am sorry to hear about your negative experience with the Arpenaz 50 Children Waterproof Hiking Shoe. All of our waterproof shoes are tested in a laboratory setting as well as in the field to validate their waterproofness. The Arpenaz 50 Children Waterproof Hiking Shoe is tested for up to two hours of walking in wet ground. If the product was used for less than two hours and still failed then there must be a manufacturing default. I would advise you to travel to your nearest Decathlon store for an exchange or a refund. Alternatively you can return your item by post by following the instructions here:

Hiking Shoes

Bought these hiking shoes for my two boys, we were going on a trip to Snowdonia and my boys found them really comfy when climbing up Snowdon. Seem hard wearing, very happy with my purchase.
Great value kids shoes
Used for 3 to 6 months
Work really well for kids hiking
Great value
Used for More than 1 year
Have bought a few pairs of these for my 5 year old son now. He loves that they are waterproof and comfortable. In addition to this, I love that they are rugged and heard wearing, as well as well priced.
My son runs, climbs, crawls and abuses shoes in any way possible. Despite his numerous efforts, he has been unable to destroy these shoes- admittedly they don't look as good by the time he's outgrown them, but they are still highly functional.
Worth every penny, that's why I continue to by them as he grows.
Hard wearing, comfortable, waterproof
They don't grow as my son's feet grow.
Excellent snug fit
Used for 2 to 8 weeks
I got a size 35 that fits my son perfectly. He’s 8 and has got other good shoes, but insists on wearing only this. A good gripping pair of shoes that’s waterproof too!
