Bottom line

Where there is an approach route to go through, the superbly lightweight and comfortable Hueco Low is a dependable companion to bring along. It is also a great tool for surmounting slippery trails, thanks to its amazingly sticky outsole.

That being said, this budget-friendly product has a misfire in the looks department. Overall, the Mammut Hueco Low has just the right amount of qualities to be considered a solid effort from the brand.

Good to know

-The Hueco Low is Mammut’s love letter to hikers who wish to tackle approaches with as much security and comfort as possible. Its designers used the Strobel construction in its creation, which leaves the shoe extra-rigid and supportive.

-Its sole unit, which is mainly made up of the Hueco Low’s single-piece midsole and Michelin outsole, comes with a mildly rockered toe. This feature promises sufficient walking comfort over flat surfaces and level terrain.

The Mammut Hueco Low is a below-the-ankle approach shoe for men and women. Its engineers armed it with a pair of heel stabilizers to keep the foot in place and prevent heel slippage. Lockdown security and fit personalization come by means of the shoe’s ankle-to-toe lace-up closure. This particular fit management system is rather unique with its midfoot cords, which deliver a firmer hold of the foot, especially around the instep.

With its rubberized outsole called Michelin Square Tech, the Hueco Low from Mammut aims to keep the foot as secure as possible, whether stationary or on the move. It can dig into soft-soiled earth with efficiency, thanks to its low-profile studs (also known as lugs) and hard-wearing tread patterns.

Its forefoot zone is practically lug-less. This design decision leaves the shoe with a climbing zone, which grants approach tacklers adequate adhesive power on light climbs, especially where smearing and edging are concerned.

This approach-centric Mammut hiker brings enough cushioning and stability to the table with its wedge-type midsole. As it is made of EVA or ethylene-vinyl acetate, it can bear considerable weight and stress without sacrificing comfort. Its stout yet springy build translates to ample shock absorption on ground contact.

Slapped on top of this comfy component is the Hueco Low’s leather footbed. It being part of the mix bolsters the midsole’s provision of comfort. It also ups the shoe’s underfoot support.

The Mammut Hueco Low sports a nubuck leather upper. It comes with a supple liner made of hard-wearing textile. Getting in and out of its cozy confines is made easier with a cord-like pull loop stitched to its heel.

Both sides of its heel zone are engineered with sturdy panels (also known as heel stabilizers). These supportive panels are made of thermoplastic polyurethane or TPU.

The Hueco Low’s upper comes in full circle with the hiker’s to-the-toe lacing system. It consists of combination eyelets with midfoot-hugging cords and a synthetic lace.
