Robust and lively underfoot, the Men's MTR 201 Trail Running Shoe was made for running in the wild. Mammut covered all the basics of a trail-worthy shoe from the get-go: a breathable mesh upper handles the heat, a toothy outsole provides traction on loose trails, and there's a toe cap at the front for additional protection. The real beauty of this shoe lies in the details, the little bits and pieces that prove that the MTR was made not just by designers, but designers who live and breathe the mountains. A free-sliding webbing system keeps the laces in exactly the right place as you ascend or descend through tricky terrain. The midsole uses targeted cushioning to reduce ankle fatigue and create stability useful for conquering rocky, foot-twisting technical terrain. And that toothy outsole mentioned at the beginning? It's pattern is inspired by the shape of a sonar wave, with bi-directional lugs that improve acceleration on the sprint and deceleration when you need to slow down quickly. Slide your foot inside the MTR 201 and you'll find that the fit is close and snug, which makes it easier to precisely plant your foot where you need it on the trail. Altogether, the sum of these features add up to a shoe with just the right balance toughness, stability, and comfort so you can take control on the trail.
Mammut makes a range of trail shoes for a variety of purposes, including running, fast-packing, and approach. The shoe that most closely compares to the MTR 201 is the MTR 201 Dyneema. Instead of the single-material mesh upper used for the MTR 201, the Dyneema version uses a blend of three materials including Dyneema, which Mammut is tougher than carbon fiber and in some cases even tougher than steel. If you're not in need of extreme protection and prefer a lighter, more breathable shoe, original MTR 201 is your shoe of choice.
