The flashes of color on the Mammut Pacific Crest GTX boots make for a somewhat futuristic appearance - and when you see the amount of technology Mammut has packed into them, you'll understand why.
The Pacific Crest boots are designed for backpacking trips of moderate load and intensity. The nubuck leather upper and fully-encircling rubber rand provide protection in rocky environments that are tough on footwear, and the boots have a flex index of A8 - the second stiffest rating in the Mammut hiking/backpacking line. Greater stiffness translates into better load-bearing ability for those carrying heavy packs, while those who are just carrying light loads on day hikes will probably want something more flexible.
Inside, the boots feature Mammut's Foot Mapping System, which matches particular materials to the various zones of the foot: some parts sweat, some parts feel cold, some parts are pressure-sensitive. Accordingly, Mammut locates cushioning, warming, cooling, slip and non-slip lining materials in all the right places. Also included is the Base Fit lacing system, in which one pair of lace hooks is attached to a webbing band that is anchored to the insole of the boot. When you apply tension to the laces, this band is pulled tight and helps to anchor the foot firmly in place. The result is less heel slip and a decreased risk of blisters. You can see the exposed part of the system in the photo - it's the lace hook with the flashes of color at its base.
