Updates to Mammut Nova III Mid GTX

With a few tweaks on the design and finish, the Nova III Mid GTX features a Nubuck leather upper that is resistant to abrasion, wear and tear.

It is designed with the Rolling Concept, a Mammut-exclusive technology designed to encourage the natural foot movement, thereby providing cushion and support.

The Vibram sole has deep, hexagonal lugs on one side and indented lines on the other. These result in increased grip and traction on varying terrain.

Size and fit

The Nova III Mid GTX boots are mid-cut hikers with uppers that easily conform to the shape of the foot.  The collar and the tongue are padded with 3D memory foam to create a nice and snug fit. And because this foam is very pliable, it returns to its original shape even after intense pressure is applied to it.

This shoe is built using a gender-specific last to ensure that it fits nicely to the shape of a woman’s foot. 

Lastly, it features a polyamide (PA) webbing lacing system with two hooks on top so you can adjust the fit between the forefoot and ankle separately.

Outsole

Mammut has tied up with Vibram to create a grippy sole that can withstand moderate to challenging terrain conditions. 

The Nova III Mid GTX sole features the Vibram Frog Technology which involves polygonal lugs for increased traction on varying surfaces, including soft and muddy grounds. The sole tread pattern is divided into two - one has hexagonal lugs and the other has thin cut lines (indentations). This design is meant to give fantastic grip and durability.

Another interesting feature of the Mammut Nova III Mid GTX is the Rolling Concept technology which is designed to optimize the natural movement of the foot and reduce the possibility of twisting the ankle when hiking unsurfaced trails.

Midsole

This female hiking boot from Mammut has a lightweight midsole made of EVA. It’s a type of foam that has the ability to disperse weight and provide stability. It’s also very flexible and is soft enough to create a cushiony platform for the foot while remaining supportive.

Upper

The Nova III Mid GTX has a protective and durable upper made of Nubuck leather which is manufactured with Terracare standards for sustainability and eco-friendliness. Certain regions of the shoe, including the toe area, are reinforced with liquid rubber for added protection against abrasion, and damage from sharp hazards on the trail.

Furthermore, the shoe is lined with Gore-Tex Performance Comfort membrane that offers superior protection against external moisture. 

Completing the upper is a web lacing closure featuring polyamide laces that are durable and flexible.
