Excellent. I need some naff looking trainers to buy my dad for Christmas. These fit the bill perfectly. 👌🏻

What a vain bunch!

Don't look like "hiking boots" to me.
They do look cheap and naff though.

They are minging

I wouldn't hike to the shop in these!

You wouldn't make it there.

They're just cheap trainers. What makes them 'hiking' quality?

These remind me of a pair of trainers my mother got for me when i was at school once.... that was 23 years ago.... have not spoken to her since!

Looks like someone found a batch of 70's tech.... at the back of the warehouse....

Decathlon gear is normally ok and normally fair value for money if a little plain looking. The Arpanez 100 range looks to have good reviews on the Decathlon site across the different varieties of boots, mids, and shoes so if people are happy with them then that's a good sign.

What a vain bunch!

These will go great with my stonewash, straight leg Lee Cooper jeans. Thanks

Exactly. For £8 what's not to like, you could even just get these and keep them in the boot of your car for the times when you need a change of footwear that you don't mind if they get dirty doing a job, or use as dog-walking shoes. I had a similar pair a few years back, I used them things like going to the park with my kids when I knew it might be a bit muddy, and after a while they became the ones that I'd wear if I was doing a bit of DIY and didn't mind if they got a drip of paint on, they served me well.

Either I'm getting old, or my eyes are deceiving me, or both....but they look more like regular trainers than hiking shoes

They'll go nicely with my suit from the charity shop.

It's not so much the look as the description that put me off:

"Designed for hiking" oh, good I was looking for some decent...
"for 2-3 hours" ok then, decent-ish shoes. That is oddly specific though. What happens after 3 hours? Do I get 3 hours total? Do they somehow recuperate between outings? Do they come with a timer...
"in warm weather conditions" eh? The mind boggles. What happens if they get cold? Or Hot? Is that why I have to turn back after 1-1.5 hours, because they'll overheat? So, on a balmy summer's day I can go for a short hike...
"on easy paths" because heaven forbid I wanted to hike off-road! "Sorry guys, that path looks decidedly moderate to me, you hike on ahead whilst I stick this thermometer down my socks. I've got to be back at the car in 27 minutes anyway before my feet implode". I'm struggling to imagine an "easy path" that isn't in fact a pavement anyway, so maybe these are only good for the weekday summer stroll to the bus stop.
"For occasional use." Of course they are. One can't expect their hiking shoes to deliver a fair weather saunter day-in day-out, can they? Be reasonable. After a brief turn about the cul-de-sac most serious hiking footwear is going to need some downtime. I would, however, be interested to know what the recharge is on these things. Could I get away with ambling to the corner shop on alternate weekends in May and June? Perhaps a quick mosey to the park again in early September before I have to hang them up for the winter and start wearing Crocs...
