Trade your low-profile trail runners in for a more rugged boot like the Mammut Trovat High GTX Hiking Boot to keep checking peaks off your list in less-than-perfect weather conditions. Before you worry that you'll have to abandon the lightness you love about your minimal summer shoes by upgrading to an ankle boot, relax. Hiking boots have come a long way, and the leather uppers and weightless Gore-Tex membrane on the Trovat offer increased protection from the elements without feeling anything like the bricks that hiking boots used to be.
With roots in mountaineering in the Alps, Mammut takes hiking and mountaineering gear seriously. Its uses a three-zone lacing pattern on the Trovat to allow you to customize the laces to accommodate the topography of your feet to achieve security without tightness, and adds a cushy 3D tongue to help ward off pressure points during long treks. Memory foam adds an extra dose of cush, and the afore-mentioned Gore-Tex membrane seals out snow, ice, and rain so your toes stay dry. Smear your way over rocks and reroute your way around impassable ice on-trail with the Vibram MT Traction II sole lending sticky grip you can count on in tough conditions.
