Whether you’re heading out on a hiking vacation, or just want a pair of boots that you can trust to be solid in performance and yet light on weight, versatility is a huge factor. Why pack many shoes when you can have just one pair that’s both reliable on the trail and on the sidewalk?

Try on a pair of Mammut Ducan Mid GTX hiking boots.

These mid-height boots are equipped with the GTX membrane, which makes them suitable for outdoor activities in inconsistent weather. They’re equipped with Mammut’s Flextron Technology, with a spring-steel sole to stabilize the foot without any compromise to comfort. Combined with the Vibram sole, which adds greater grip and a more sure-footed step to take you safely through pathless terrain, they work together to prevent the foot from bending at small climbing points and provide a firm hold on the surface.

Mammut Georganic 3D Technology creates a cut tailored to the foot, giving the shoe a comfortable fit, whether you’re hiking technical terrain or a quick daylong adventure. Instead of a tongue that slides around while you’re walking, the boot has more of a socklike fit, with one side that opens and adjusts for your foot.

An anatomical last and asymmetric lacing add the finishing touches to the shoe’s design, making it stand out just a little more than your average hiking boot, but also something you can easily wear all day long between hiking adventures and other excursions in town. Mid boots are great options for folks who are concerned about ankle stability, yet don’t want a full-on high ankle cuff on a hiking boot.

The Ducan Mid GTX hiking boot comes in poetic color combinations like dark turmeric/turmeric, phantom/light galaxy (pictured), and dark titanium/evening sand, and lists for $179 on the Mammut site.
