Scratch my Mammut White Rose boot sustained after I rubbed it on a rock along the trail. It felt like I barely touched the rock. I am little disappointed that the material does not handle contact with trail obstacles better but otherwise I really like these boots.
Comfortable all day
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
- Fit: True to size
First of all let me tell you that I am absolutely thrilled with the comfort and stability these boots provide. I took them out of the box and off I went for a 9 mile hike, and I ended up with very happy blister free feet. Since that day I wore them in variety of terrain and conditions, from dry desert environment of the Grand Canyon to talus, scree, muddy trails and snow of the Cascades. Their performance deserves an A+ The only time I ever felt a little discomfort was 3/4 of the way into a 28 mile day hike, and even then I suspect the blister that formed on my foot was due to improper use (my feet felt so good I tried to jog parts of the trail with full pack on) rather than anything else. They are the type of boots you don't feel the need to kick off your feet at the very moment you get to camp or back to your car.
They run little wider in the toe box, which is a plus if you plan to use them in the altitude where your feet might swell, but fit me well even though my foot generally likes narrower boot. I wear size 9 for hiking, and the White Roses run true to size.
I am little worried about durability of the material. I smeared my foot on a rock during the first hike and ended up with rather deep scratch. So far it does not seem to be effecting the waterproofness of the boot, I literally stood in the middle of creek in them with water rushing over the top for at good 15-20 seconds, and the inside remained dry; however it is a concern for the future as the material shows little signs of wear in other spots as well. I think they would do fine if used only on trail but not might be the best choice if you consider frequent off trail travel and scrambling.
I am taking the White Roses on a 200+ mile trek starting 8/1 and will report more on their durability upon my return.
Good Hiking Boot
- Gender: Female
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
- Fit: Runs large
I purchased this boot to wear with snowshoes in the winter and for hiking during the summer months. I really like the boot. I normally wear a size 10 and have wide feet. I ordered the 9.5 and its roomy enough to wear with hiking socks. I think Mammut boots run a little large. Just remember that when ordering. The boot is wonderful for women with wide feet. The boot also looks good. The blue highlights really stand out against the deep brown. The boot is totally waterproof. I have tested this on hikes where I have needed to walk across creeks. My feet stay warm and dry.
The boots have a Vibram sole and its on the stiff side. The stiffness is good for walking on rocky surfaces or scree. The foot is supported . The leather upper also provides stable ankle support. The upper ankle support is nicely padded on the inside.
If you have wide feet and are looking for stable ankle support in a water proof boot, this would be a wonderful choice.

Probably returning them, but...
It feels odd to post a review about boots you're sending back, but in case it's helpful:
These feel true to size if a bit wide (which normally works for me). From a visual inspection, they also seem very well made (looking at the stitching, the relative symmetry, etc.) and the upper felt comfortably snug.
However, the sole is incredibly stiff , more so than all but one pair of hiking/backpacking boots I've had previously (Montrail Moraines), and I found that level of stiffness really uncomfortable in the long haul. However, if you ARE looking for a super-stiff sole, these may be the boots for you.
Great especially for wider feet
These boots not only look great but they feel like slippers on the inside and tough sturdy boots on the outside!
