Technical Information

1
Protection from sand
This shoe features an integrated gaiter, which prevents sand from entering the shoe. For better protection against sand, we recommend pairing this shoe with the Desert 500 trousers.
2
Depending on the terrain, what type of boot would you recommend?
We designed these boots for sandy deserts. Indeed, the sole is very flexible, allowing your foot to roll through properly, which is ideal for walking on sand dunes. If you are trekking in a sand desert (e.g. the erg in the Sahara), these boots are ideal. If, on the other hand, you are trekking on hard rocky ground (e.g. the reg in the Sahara), then we would recommend some mountain trekking boots instead.
3
Why is it more breathable?
In the desert, there is no need for waterproof boots! However, most boots are waterproof thanks to a membrane that keeps the water out. Given the desert boot's lack of a membrane, it is all the more breathable.

How to choose the size of your desert boot
In the desert (or in warm climates), the feet tend to swell. So, do not hesitate to take one size up from your usual size to ensure a comfortable trek.

Test
An independent panel of trekkers (for total impartiality) in the dunes of the Sahara, in southern Morocco! These testers were recruited through our co-creation platform ( https://cocreation.decathlon.com/). They completed a trek involving 4 days of walking (6 days in all) during which they gave us feedback on the boots throughout the experience, which we used to improve them before marketing.

Product test
The entire design team visited the desert several times (Sahara in Morocco, Wadi Rum in Jordan and Adrar in Mauritania) to design the most suitable products for trekking in the desert. Test, modify, test again and make adjustments to ensure that your future treks in the desert are as comfortable as possible.
