The Monolith GTX boot by Mammut, is a lightweight mountaineering boot, that is suitable for taking a strap on crampon. The construction is such that the weight of the boot has been kept to a mininum, but no structure or support has been compromised in doing so. The boot is very supportive, and so is ideal for scrambling, or light winter work. The GORE-TEX® upper ensures that you stray dry, while still allowing your feet to breath. The 3 Zone lacing system allows you to alter the laces to individual needs and preferences. Available in anthracite/black.

General comments: I was looking for a boot that offered a little more ankle support than the majority of 3 season boots on the market,without going to the extreme of a full 4 season boot. I have had Raichle and Scarpa boots in recent years and found the Scarpa boots were getting a little too snug. The Raichle Mountain guides I had were very comfy and offered a fair degree of support but I found the sole to be pretty useless in muddy going. I opted for this over the Scarpa Manta and SL-M3 and also the newer SL which has very shallow tread. The Vibram Teton sole fitted to the Mammut is a revelation...fantastic natural rolling action and very deep tread that has so far not lost grip in any kind of surface. The boot as a whole feels very comfortable and reassuring and needed virtually no break in.
I tend to walk off piste a lot so like a boot with lots of support without being uncomfortably rigid and this seems to fit the bill beautifully.
If you are unsure, try them in the shop...I cant fault them and have had dozens of pairs of 3 and 4 season boots.
Pros: Excellent grippy and supprtive sole offering good cushioning but maintaing feel for rocky going.
No break in needed!
Cons: Bit pricey....though I got mine for £145.00 with free Smartwool socks when they were first released.
