Great comfort and support with very little weight, for alpine trekking.
The Mammut® Monolith GTX
is a very light, very comfortable crampon-compatible alpine and trekking boot.
Constructed using abrasion-resistant velour leather and 'Dropstop' textile, the Monolith GTX is both flexible and supportive, thanks to Mammut's Motion Control technology - the cushioning Hybrid Shell providing good support exactly where it’s needed.
Mammut's Base Fit technology uses free-sliding bands to transfer the force of the lacing to the sole, adapting to the anatomy of the foot and boosting the pressure on the big toe for precision footwork.
Rounding out this full-featured boot are a fully waterproof, highly breathable GORE-TEX® Performance Comfort Footwear membrane, a high-grip Vibram® Teton sole and a fully adjustable 3-zone lacing system.

Nice boots for winter and summer, 06 December 2013
By Dano (Cheshire)
I bought this pair of boots last year for a long trip and i had a nice experience with them. The first time of course I had blister silly me I didn't had a proper walk before to go to this big trip. Second time no problems and now are my favorites.
I absolutely love it! Nice and warm. I did a trip in Spain on Pyrenees with 6 days full of snow (4m) and any day i had my feet cold... at all.. The grip is awesome I did via ferrata and very good grip on the rocks.
I recommend this boots 100%.
Great fitting boot of poor quality, 18 August 2013
By icon (W Yorks)
I bought these boots in spring for completing the Haute Route this summer. On long fitness walks in the Lakes and Dales I was very impressed by their lightness, comfort and 'grippiness'. They fitted like a glove from day one, no blisters or sore feet.
However, after the first day of glacier training in Chamonix I noticed that after a bit of front pointing and kicking steps, the rubber banding on both toe caps had started to peel. On the second day, at the start of the 7 day trek, one of the top lacing hooks snapped when I laced up the boot. Despite this, boots performed extremely well over the next 7 days. There was no foot movement wearing crampons (despite low lacing) and they gave confidence on mixed ground and loose screes. The state of the rubber rand and toe cap did however deteriorate.
It was with some sadness that I returned the boots to the supplier and obtained a refund. Much as I liked the boots I did not wish to have them replaced with like as the durability of the toe and side rands was very poor. I have since read reviews of similar issues on other Mammut boots models.
In summary, a well designed, comfortable B2 boot let down by poor quality material or construction which is a shame.
Super boot..., 01 February 2012
...so far so good. The usual bit of rub on the heel which I get with any boot. I have discovered that investing in a pair of "superfeet" insoles makes any boots MILES more comfortable. (I am sure other makes are avaliable but like anything you seem to get what you pay for.) These are a good fit on my narrow feet as they lace right to the toe joint. I clean my boots and re-proof them after each use and this seem to be working a charm at keeping them performing to their absolute best. Hope they can stand up to the abuse!
