Bottom line

To sport the Hueco Mid GTX means to be in a super-breathable boot, in which comfort is almost always assured, no matter the terrain condition. Wearing one also translates to secure approach escapades, thanks to its doubled-down durability and exemplary slip resistance.

That said, this Mammut hiker might not be the best option for when adamantine support is highly required. Nevertheless, the Hueco Mid GTX delivers on almost all fronts, making it a great trail-to-rock companion.

Good to know

-The mid-top and watertight big brother of the Hueco Low, the Hueco Mid GTX blurs the divide between leisure footwear and full-fledged approach kicks. Underneath its fuzzy shell is a Gore-Tex membrane for waterproofing.

-With the Hueco Mid GTX’s sole unit, adventurers are promised a safe and comfy approach ride over different types of surfaces. Both its heel and toe sections are rockered, enabling the wearer to pull off smoother transitions over level terrain.

The Hueco Mid GTX (men’s and women’s), as its name suggests, comes with a mid-cut ankle cuff. Within its confines, the heel is kept in place, thanks to the shoe’s hardy heel stabilizers. A personalized fit is courtesy of the hiker’s to-the-toe lace-up closure, which comes with midfoot cords that give the instep a more intimate hug.

The Mammut Hueco Mid GTX gives its wearers ample surface traction with its grippy rubber outsole, called Michelin Square tech. It is dotted with square-shaped low-profile lugs, giving it the capability to dig into loose soil. What makes it extra grippy on edges, on the other hand, is its smooth-yet-treaded front end (also known as climbing zone).

This approach hiker from Mammut is equipped with a one-piece midsole for cushioning and stability. It is a foam-like layer made of EVA (ethylene-vinyl acetate), which is a resilient material whose advantages include high-stress resistance and low-temperature flexibility. On ground impact, this heavy-duty component provides enough rebound, protecting the foot from injury-causing shock as a result.

It comes topped with a company-owned footbed for added comfort underfoot. This default insole is moderately textured to prevent slippage. It also contributes to the overall supportiveness of the shoe.

The above-the-ankle upper of the Mammut Hueco Mid GTX is mainly made of velours leather. It has a cord-like pull loop at the heel to make on and off that much more convenient. As it is imbued with the Gore-Tex Performance Comfort technology, wet elements are expected to slide right off it. This waterproofing tech also promotes the shoe’s breathability.

Taking point in this approach-centric hiker is its rubberized toe cap. Its presence provides two benefits: abrasion protection and toeing grip on low-grade climbs. On the support side of things, the shoe comes with heel stabilizers, which are hardy panels made of TPU (thermoplastic polyurethane).

Rounding out all things upper in the Hueco Mid GTX is the footgear’s lockdown system. It consists of 8 pairs of eyelets and a synthetic lace.
