Notable features of the Mammut Ducan Mid GTX
The Mammut Ducan Mid GTX is a heavy-duty backpacking boot that combines innovative technologies for a comfortable and supportive stride. Chief among its features is the Vibram Flextron which uses a spring steel sole that prevents foot deflection and offers precise support. It also boasts of the Georganic 3D Technology that enhances the fit for greater flexibility and comfort, and the Gore-Tex waterproof membrane for sealing water out.
This hiking boot is made with durable mesh that is lightweight and highly resistant to abrasion.
High-performance Vibram outsole
Designed for varying terrains, this boot uses a Flextron outsole designed by Vibram. It's a unique sole that features three flex zones that support the foot's natural rolling motion while providing stability. The lugs are multidirectional, enhancing the grip and traction. There's also ample space in between the lugs that help keep mud from getting stuck (which is a big obstacle when you're tackling steep terrain).
Vibram is the world's leading sole manufacturer. They make high-quality rubber soles made of abrasion-resistant and long-wearing rubber compound.
The Ducan Mid GTX boasts of a durable midsole developed using the Georganic 3D Technology. It features a three-dimensional cut midsole that is defined directly on the foot. This creates a platform that is soft, supportive, and comfortable.
Durable reinforced upper
The shoe upper is made of double-layered mesh reinforced by TPU overlays for enhanced strength and weather protection. Waterproof hikers tend to overheat as they are lined with special membranes or fabric. Good thing, the mesh upper allows some air circulation, which helps prevent overheating.
For its waterproofing feature, the Mammut Ducan Mid GTX boot uses the Gore-Tex membrane. It works by creating a solid barrier against water intrusion so your feet stay dry amidst rain, slush, or snow.
Completing the upper is lace-up closure with symmetrical laces for a secure and adjustable fit. Furthermore, the one-sided tongue helps reduce the pressure point on top, making hikes and strolls even more comfortable.
