Technical information

WHAT IS YOUR HIKING FREQUENCY AND INTENSITY?

We have classified our products in terms of performance and features for 3 levels of Mountain Walking:
- occasional: about 10 hikes per year of about 3 to 4 hours in length, covering less than 10km and less than 700m in elevation gain.
- Regular: about 20 outings per year. 4 to 6 hours, 10 to 20 km, 700 to 1200m of elevation gain per outing.
- Intensive: more than 20 times a year. More than 6 hours, more than 20 km, 1200 to 2000m of elevation gain per outing.

SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT INFORMATION

For the fabric lining of these shoes, we dye the yarn at source in order to reduce the environmental impact. Textile dyeing requires a lot of water but also produces waste water from the dye baths. To reduce this environmental impact, we use a mass pigmentation process that involves adding the colour pigments when the yarn itself is produced.

SOLE WITH GRIP

The grip of our soles is certified.
To be awarded certification, the boots 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

Waterproof HDry® Membrane

A special process where the HDry® membrane is laminated directly to the inside of the upper. There is no space between the fabric of the upper and the membrane, which limits the water absorption between the upper and the membrane compared to a solution with a liner with waterproof membrane. The fit is closer to your foot and the waterproofing performs well over time.

Waterproofing test

In a laboratory, the boot is immersed in water to mid-height on a mechanical arm that flexes to simulates a number of steps. With this test we can determine a time and number of km that the boot can walk while staying dry.
Then we confirm in the field or under the rain, that the shoe meets its promises.

Making waterproofing last longer

To keep your feet dry, we advise you to use a waterproof gaiter or mini-gaiter to protect the top of your boots and prevent water, pebbles and sand from getting in.

We advise re-waterproofing your boots twice a year using a re-waterproofing agent (search for ‘waterproofing’ on our Decathlon website) which will help you restore the original water-repellent qualities and help prevent stains on the outside.

EVOFIT concept

This boot is fitted with the EVOFIT concept. With its stretch materials and specific design for the area of the foot where the joints are located, EVOFIT technology allows the boot to perfectly fit the shape of your foot.

Prevents stones from getting in

This MH900 shoe has been designed to bring you maximum comfort on long, technical mountain walks. To prevent small stones and twigs from getting inside the shoe, it has an elastic mini-gaiter.

Product design: our expertise

Our Quechua global design centre is based in Passy, at the foot of Mont-Blanc in Haute Savoie.
This location makes it a real meeting place for our teams (designers, product managers, engineers, etc) and outdoor sports enthusiasts.
A great asset for designing your mountain walking products and providing you with all our expertise.

Which size should I select?

The most important thing is to try on several sizes and styles of boots 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 boot.

BUYING TIPS / HOW DO YOU TRY YOUR BOOTS 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 boot 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.

Which socks?

A waterproof shoe will be less breathable than a non-waterproof shoe. You should therefore opt for socks like the MH500, MH520 and MH900 with a high or medium upper to wick away perspiration and reduce friction.

How should you look after your boots?

- Leave to air dry.
AVOID HEAT SOURCES AND DO NOT LEAVE IN THE SUN - they will become too dry and the leather may crack.
- Remove dry mud with a stiff brush.
- Clean with a brush and a little warm water to remove stains
- Spray with a waterproof spray to restore the water-repellent properties of the upper.

Approved By

Alex, a mid-mountain guide and Quechua tester:
"A shoe with a snug fit, and rigid enough to provide very good grip on all terrains, that I can wear for all my outings.
It is very comfortable, which is ideal for long hikes.
Its 360° stone guard protects me from stones, and allows me to take on more technical paths without a problem. The advantage: a mini gaiter that prevents external elements from getting inside the shoe."
