We review the Mammut Ridge High GTX, designed specifically for via ferrata

mammut ridge high gtx walking boots
Overall Score
Great build quality
Some initial breaking in is required

The Mammut Ridge High has been designed specifically for via ferrata (no longer such a niche activity as it once was) which means the low profile ‘IronGrip’ sole features flexible ribs and lugs and rubber designed to grip better on a via ferrata’s iron rungs.

That’s not to say you can’t use them for anything else, in fact their light weight (1248g/pair), close fit and highly supportive uppers make them great for more demanding summer walking and scrambling.

Build quality is excellent – the velour/textile upper has a Gore-tex lining and the boots feature integrated ‘Memo Foam’ for added comfort, plus there’s a generous rubber toe rand for protection, and whilst you will need to give the High Ridge some initial breaking in (and they may not suit if you have wider feet) this is an excellent option if you’re planning some outings on via ferrata and scrambling this summer.
