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.

I don't usually write reviews but after 18 months or so of hard wear these boots deserve a mention. With a bit of regular care they still look as good as new. They'e done Cairngorm and Ben Macdui twice to name but a few of their adventures. Comfy since day 1 and very trustworthy. I've considered buying another pair in case they stop making them. The problem is that my existing pair don't show any signs of ever giving up.

Bought these a pair of these in Sept 2012 and spent the first two weeks walking the dog in them to break them in. Neednt have bothered as they were comfortable straight from the off.
Did a few walks in and around Snowdon in them and found them to be very comfortable and supportive even on longer day walks and some scrambles.
They were a pleasure to wear walking all day in the trekking trip that they were bought for in the Himalayas.
All in all a comfortable boot to wear and you do feel the benefit of the motion footbed.
I felt these gave better ankle support than the other boots i looked at the Scarpa XL but try before you buy I felt these were well worth it.

Got these on the price promise. Very pleased with them. First took them across the Rhinogs in N. Wales in July when it was VERY WET. Feet stayed dry.
Initially felt a bit cramped in the toes, but some fettling with the laces and a slightly thinner but better footbed sorted that. Have now used them in full winter conditions with crampons. Only walking and easy scrambling but they were great. They'll get a proper try out on some mid grade Scottish climbs next month, but so far couldn't be more pleased.
