Mammut's second-most-technical trail shoe and one of its safest for going hard on the dirt.
- Single-Shell upper uses lightweight, breathable mesh throughout
- Lining uses breathable synthetic material and memory foam padding around the collar
- Flexible external structure provides additional heel support
- Rubber cap protects the toes from impact
- Gripex sonar sole has flexible ribs and wave-shape, multi-directional lugs

Great fit, breathable, and protective!
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
- Fit: True to size
The MTR fits snug but flexible in the forefoot while giving you plenty of room in the toebox for comfort. I was initially skeptical about the rubber toe cap and plastic heel protection but it only took a couple days of hard trail runs to realize that my feet could have been crazy bruised without them.
In the past I have always worn road shoes for running on all kinds of terrain, but thanks to these I think I am converted to trail specific shoes for good.
Very solid, light, speedy shoe

The MTR201s were a bit of a surprise for me to find, as almost no one in the US uses mammuts running shoes or boots. A perfectly molded shoe that grips on wet east coast rock (very rare). Good toe rubber and plastic heel reinforcement mean using your feet in odd positions is fine. Mesh isn't too thin, and appears to be wearing well. Not awesome for road running due to wear issues, but for anything with mud, rocks, or snow, these are a great in-between minimalist-ish shoe that can take 10x the beating of a true barefoot trail runner and will leave your feet intact. A little small compared to Salomon's sizing with a curved toe box, but much more control. Looking forward to trying the Dyneema version as a work shoe.
Will you be getting more of these in? I...
Will you be getting more of these in? I go through a trail shoe every 3-4 months, and I love these. Just need a new pair in a 10.
Unfortunately we do not have anymore of these on order at this time
Mammut MTR 201 Trail Running Shoe
Mammut MTR Athlete Review
The MTR trail shoes are unlike any other trail runner I have had the chance to wear. They are light-weight, super flexible in the toe, and cushioned for long ultra events. The MTR 201, is my racing shoe of choice for long ultras from 50k-100k out in the woods. Mammut utilizes their Sonar Sole technology which like a sound wave helps to allow for a sound heel-to-toe transition over any form of terrain. I have had the chance to test the MTR 201 in a variety of trails in Upstate New York in a long variety of weather conditions. The shoe performed so well in snow, I would have mistaken my shoes for snowshoes! The traction is so fluid and smooth on sharp descents and the flex in the toe allows for a comfortable ascent of even some of the steepest pitches. The shoe performed well on the roads though is unparalleled on the trails. I would recommend using the shoe as a primary trail shoe since the lugs grip better on unusual terrain. THe Ventech upper is extremely durable, as it is made from a strong fiber that does not puncture when navigating through sharp rocks or thick sticks and underbrush.
The heel-to-toe drop has been kind of a mystery as of late but I feel like the shoe is anywhere in the 8-6mm range in terms of how the shoe performs though it is not a minimal shoe but rather a minimal-feeling shoe that has a smooth and aggressive tread and comes together in a light and functional package.
If you are looking for a shoe that can act as an all-around alpine-based trail training shoe or racer for a 5k trail up to a 100 miler, these shoes have what it takes to take you all the way.
Can anybody tell me the heel/toe drop on...
Can anybody tell me the heel/toe drop on this and if the site will be getting the Dyneema version anytime soon? Thanks!
