    Quechua shoes??

    Has anyone ever had a pair of Quechua shoes? Quite surprised that the brand doesn't seem to be mentioned as they are cheap & we all like a bargain.

    Got some Quechua raid shoes this weekend, so I'll keep you posted re. quality etc., after all they may be crap!!

    Can't comment on quality on the boots but most of the stuff I've bought from Decathalon has been pretty good except the running pants,(non existent stiching)
    I've looked at the shoes and thought good price but then I've picked them up,

    Will send bill for hernia op to there HQ--- Heavy

    Good training shoe, then? Cheap, tough & heavy? Racing in Walshes will then feel easy-peasy.

    Hmm, I picked these partly because they were so light, in fact the lightness made me a bit wary, but the husband said that was a good thing on longer runs, so I concurred.

    They weren't in the running section, which only had 2 styles to fit me, but in the walking section, as long hike/raid shoes. I've had 1 run in them, really grippy & good cushioning on the trail bits. Flatter than I'm used to but not bad.

    They must have been different to the ones I saw in the running section.

    Good luck with them
