The Mammut Nova Advanced GTX is a hiking boot for those who desire the durability of leather and the ankle support of a traditional-cut boot, without the weight and stiffness that come with a full-bore backpacking boot. These boots weigh 889 grams per pair in a size 7, compared to 1,524 grams for Mammut's heaviest-duty women's backpacking boots, the Appalachian GTX. And you know what they say - a pound on your feet is like eight pounds on your back.
Additionally, the Nova GTX boots have an "A7" flex index, which is in the middle of the Mammut scale for hiking footwear. The result is a boot that's easier to walk in, albeit not quite as capable when it comes to bearing the load of heavy backpacks.
