Mammut Ducan Low GORE-TEX Walking Shoes
A super-sporty and agile hiking shoe for multi-day outings, trekking excursions or fast-paced hikes in the mountains, incorporating the benefits of cutting-edge production techniques.
The GORE-TEX upper ensures the shoes are durably waterproof combined with optimised breathability offering enduring weather protection. Water stays on the outside while perspiration can easily escape from the inside, thanks to their non-insulated construction they are the ideal solution for people who value outstanding climate comfort and heat release. This low-cut trekking shoe is designed for hikers and backpackers attempting to stay light on their feet. The upper boasts extreme comfort thanks to the soft, double layer engineered mesh that is enriched with a TPU heel cup for superb durability and protection from unseen trail hazards. Furthering the waterproofing on the shoe is the elastic GORE-TEX tongue construction ensuring that water can't get in from the top either keeping all parts of your feet well protected. A traditional asymmetric lacing system is easily adjustable as well as providing you with the perfect fit.
Georganic 3D Midsole
Mammut have coupled a simple EVA midsole with their unique Georganic 3D technology to provide you with technical cushioning and ergonomic comfort. The geometric-dynamic design has been given organic shaped cuts, these shaped cuts have been formed from research which are specific to certain movements. The key to the Georganic concept is the anatomical shape which has specific foot mapping for the arch, ankle and heel to provide you with an improved and more precise fit. A combination of a 3D moulded heel counter and 3D shaped memory foam insoles offers performance orientated and individualised fit so these shoes will mould to suit your feet. These two features both work in tandem to keep the ankle well protected and stable. The midsole has been specially designed to prevent pronation of the foot, the medial side of the entire midsole has been raised and follows the anatomical last shape therefore supporting the arch and foot preventing it to move inwards. Finally, the unique one-sided tongue construction creates the ergonomic fit previously mentioned following the foot, supporting movements as well as reducing pressure points throughout. The flat and stretchy tongue construction minimises the overlap of different materials and adapts to each foot individually.
Flextron Vibram Outsole
Mammut have identified 3 key aspects which they want in an outsole and have delivered it; ergonomic movement, dynamic control and optimal traction, their Flextron technology deals with all of them. Creating a barefoot feeting that supports your foot's natural anatomy, the aim of the Flextron technology is to relieve pressure keeping you feeling light on your feet. The core of the technology is a spring-steel sole which provides you with flexible support to ensure your foot is rolling correctly and naturally improving your posture as well as a more efficient way to use your energy. The lateral stability of the sole improves your foot position therefore providing you with precise landing even on uneven terrain. The contact surface in the shoe is increased thanks to even distribution of movement forces all over the spring-steel shoe resulting in improved grip. Couple this with the Vibram outsole who are known for being the market leader in grippy outsoles and you're guaranteed traction as well as stability on any type of surface.
After completing a three-year rope-making apprenticeship and working as a journeyman, mainly in Germany, Kaspar Tanner started work as a rope-maker in the Swiss town of Dintikon. This heralded the birth of Mammut. Today, Mammut specialise in mountaineering, skiing, climbing and hiking specific footwear, clothing and equipment. Separating them from the rest, Mammut also design equipment for avalanche safety as well as down sleeping bags.
