Outsole that promotes surefootedness

The Mammut Trovat Advanced High GTX has a flex index of A8, meaning the outsole has a rigid structure that grants secure footing and active damping. The brand then equipped this high-cut day hiking boot with a Vibram MT-Traction II sole. It has thick and widely-spaced lugs which bite into various ground surfaces. Its self-cleaning tread pattern creates a channel to drive water out, preventing slips and falls.

Efficiently rolling midsole

Mammut incorporated their Rolling Concept in this boot. This technology creates damping in areas that promote the natural rolling of the foot. As the user walks, the flexible ribs support the lateral side of the rearfoot to the medial side of the forefoot. It prevents fatigue while promoting a steady and secure gait. It is also crampon ready.

Additionally, a PU wedge insole renders support. Its damping properties enable it to reduce the force of vibration from impacts.

Supportive cushioning

Another brand-patented technology equipped inside the boot is the Motion Control. It gives internal reinforcement through the heel cap and is designed to prevent the foot from twisting. It has high lateral support, but it does not limit the flexibility of the foot.

Mammut’s Memo Foam feature provides padding in the ankle, shin and instep. This foam cushioning is supple which returns to its original form even after being subjected to intensive loads.

Mammut Trovat Advanced High GTX's durable upper materials

The upper of the Mammut Trovat Advanced High GTX is crafted with a combination of nubuck and Nappa leather. The former has a velvety look and is resistant to most forms of wear. The latter, on the other hand, is used on the collar of the boots. It is a soft and pliable material which gives immediate comfort, eliminating a period of breaking in.

A rubber heel and toe cap add more protection to the user. They are placed to reinforce the areas prone to bumping and tearing.

Offering waterproof protection and breathability is the Gore-Tex Performance Comfort lining. Its composition prevents water from seeping into the boots while allowing perspiration to escape. It also works in warm and cold conditions with its moderate insulation.

The Trovat Advanced High GTX has an elastic Gore-Tex tongue construction to prevent the formation of creases everytime the user tightens the laces. It also makes putting on and taking off the boots more comfortable. A knob is also placed on the tongue to hold the laces in place.
