Who should buy the Mammut Kento High GTX

- Prefer a technical alpine boot with lightweight construction
- Prefer a hiking boot that provides all-around protection
- Prefer a hiking boot that grant long-lasting comfort and secure fit

Featuring the Michelin Alpine Lite 3970 outsole, the Kento High GTX men's and women's boots grant traction even in technical pursuits. It has a defined lug tread that works even in very low temperatures.

The rigid lugs placed across the sole offer slip resistance on almost all types of terrain. It is designed with a more aggressive Climbing Zone for better performance on side approaches.

Mammut’s Kento High GTX carries a lightweight Poro wedge midsole that is also compatible with crampons. The brand’s designers incorporated a footbed (also made of memo foam) to enhance cushioning and comfort.
Gives protection against outdoor obstacles
This Mammut offering employs the brand’s Hybrid Shell feature that is a blend of inner and outer materials. It includes a premium nubuck leather used in the boot’s exterior that gives protection against outdoor obstacles.
Its interior, on the other hand, uses supple materials that promote comfort. A Gore-Tex Performance Comfort laminate is added to amplify the user’s performance by making the boot weatherproof.
Flexible and helps prevent injury
The pre-shaped tongue construction of the Kento High GTX yields an even distribution of pressure on top of the foot. The boot also carries the brand’s Motion Control, a feature that makes it flexible and helps prevent injury. The base of the upper is wrapped with a raised rubber rand that renders protection and amplifies durability.
Comfortable closure system
The boot uses a 3D memo foam at the collar to boost comfort. Lastly, its closure system uses a series of fabric loops and metal hooks.
