Back in 2018, premium Swiss outdoor brand MAMMUT unveiled its then all-new range of Ducan hiking boots which hugely benefited from the use of the company’s Flextron Technology, a spring-steel sole that’s integrated into the midsole and positioned directly atop the insole, thereby affording ample protection while simultaneously delivering an incredibly sensitive and dynamic level of grip that mimics the feeling of being barefoot and bolsters the natural rolling motion of the foot.
After spending several years on the market, MAMMUT has now unveiled a new and improved version of the lineup with the Duncan BOA High GTX. Built atop a Vibram Flextron outsole using Mammut Flextron and MAMMUT Georganic 3D Technology, the Duncan BOA High GTX features sock-style 3D knitted textile uppers fortified via an elastic GORE-TEX membrane and tongue. Replacing the older Ducan’s traditional lacing setup is an ultra-precise BOA closure system. Sporting a 10mm heel drop, these high-performance hiking boots tip the scales at just 1.1464lbs (or 18.3425oz), which is approximately 50% lighter than your average hightop hikers. The boots are also sold in black or white color options, both of which boast fluo-orange accents. Available now, the MAMMUT Duncan BOA High GTX has been priced at $269.
