Hardwearing hexagon protrusions (also known as lugs) dot its surface, allowing users to gain and maintain grip in practically every direction.
Excellent heel break
It is engineered with horizontal grooves at the forefoot to allow the shoe to flex with every stride. It also comes with a low-profile heel brake for improved maneuverability during tricky descents.
The Mercury III Low GTX has a stout yet cushy midsole for underfoot protection, comfort, and stability. It is capable of mitigating shock on impact with its thickly constructed heel zone. Its cupped design gives the shoe enhanced sturdiness and support.
Sitting right on top of this springy unit is the footgear’s removable insole. Mammut engineers gave it a contoured build to up the shoe’s underfoot support. They also furnished it with enough padding to provide wearers with extra cushioning.
Waterproof and breathable
The low-cut upper of the Mammut Mercury III Low GTX is made of nubuck leather from a proudly German brand, called Terracare. Its bootie has the Gore-Tex Performance Comfort technology, which makes the hiking shoe breathable enough on the inside while sufficiently waterproof on the outside.
The parts that hug the user’s ankle are moderately lined with cushy padding for additional in-shoe comfort. Its lacing system is made up of synthetic lace and combination eyelets.
