What shoe size do I choose?
For hiking, do try a size about your usual one to ensure optimum comfort when going downhill and to prevent your toes from touching the top of the shoe. Recommendation: keep your toenails short and before any descent, check that your lacing will prevent your foot from sliding forwards towards the front of the shoe.

Not recommended to hiking in wet weather
Used for 2 to 8 weeks
I’ve been hiking in this boots on wet weather and the boots didn’t meet my criteria at all.
I was sliding almost on each step on wet ground with was awful and uncomfortable.
But for the flat ground it’s ok.

Response of the brand
Hello Gregory 
Thank you for your review of the Arpenaz 50 Nature hiking shoe. Unfortunately, these boots are not designed for wet conditions as they are not waterproof. We do however have a selection of waterproof hiking boots and shoes. I recommend visiting your local Decathlon and speaking to a local expert to find the best product for your needs.

Not waterproof
Used for 3 to 6 months
Comfy, lightweight, good quality sole but not at all waterproof. Feet got wetter than they would in normal trainers. Useful for dry weather walking. Quality seems good apart from not being waterproof.
Gud Product For Normal Trekking

Used for 2 to 8 weeks
I got a good deal of this shoe and found it very nice for rough use.
Good for well laid dirt trails. Value for money.
Used for 7 to 12 months
My use: Primarily as a daily work boot, with occasional day hikes in dry weather.
Pros:
1. Light weight. Can barely feel the boots once laced up.
2. Good amount of flex in sole. Can walk with full strides and full foot flex. (Also see cons)
3. Sole on the firmer side and less cushy, which is good in the long run for walking on paved surfaces and dirt trails. (Also see cons)
4. Needs no break-in time, much like a sports shoe. My Forclaz 100 needed nearly two weeks to break in.
5. Sole has excellent grip on dry surfaces. (Also see cons)
6. Surprisingly roomy despite small appearance. I have to wear two socks on my narrow and thin feet for size 8.
Cons:
1. Laces come off loose in no time.
2. Lack of cushioning and flexible sole of the forefoot feels too soft and bendy on rocks. There is too much feedback on the toes and toes get tired barely 1 km into a rocky stretch. In comparison, there is barely any fatigue in entire foot after day long walking on rocks with Forclaz 100.
3. Grip on wet surfaces is doubtful. I need to be cautious when walking on wet floors/rocks.
My opinion: These are entry level boots for easy, well laid, dry dirt trails without much rocks. Can easily be used as a daily wear shoe. Lot of users who have criticized the quality of materials are requested to consider the dirt cheap price. Rock solid boots cost higher. These offer an unbeatable package at the price.
the velvel material shed off
Used for 3 to 6 months
the velvel material shed off making the shoe look ugly and unwearable
rest of the shoe remains intact,
coming to the comfort part its ok for a small trekking but you cannot expect much comfort rather will feel the pain
Response of the brand
Hello Ravi,

Thank you for your feedback on the Arpenaz 50 Shoes. The material shedding normally happens due to hydrolysis which is due to ageing of the material.  It would be great if you can share the details of when you made the purchase so that we can check if there is a manufacturing defect. On the second point, you are right that this shoe is made for short hikes and not for trekking. 

Kindly visit any of the stores with the product, and the team would be more than happy to assist you with a solution.

I remain available for any further queries :)
