Mammut Womens Claw GTX
The reptilia grip sole tread technology with its claw and rib tread pattern was developed in cooperation with vibram and offers outstanding safety due to optimum grip on mountainous terrain. Fashioned from a lightweight textile upper, combined with a PU mid sole that provides extra protection and a lightweight EVA wedge for extra shock absorption, these shoes are also 100% waterproof and offer very good breathability.
The shoe boasts a Base Fit feature for improved support and enhanced security as the free-sliding webbing transfers the power from the lacing area to the sole. The Claw GTX's Rolling Concept optimises the natural rolling behaviour of the foot, reducing fatigue and the 360⁰ heel support provides additional stability and reduces the risk of twisting an ankle.
Available for women in sizes 4-9. Weighing in at 650g (based on UK size 5½/per pair). Colourways: ciel-silver (light blue and silver), anthracite-sunshine (grey and yellow) and black-fire (black and red detail).
