It's a valid argument.

If you think your climbing shoe is more important your approach shoe, then try wearing your climbing shoe on an approach, then take the Mammut Men's Ayako Low Approach Shoe on the same trail for comparison. Mammut made this shoe for the most demanding terrain. This sturdy approach shoe features a Gore-Tex Performance Comfort for the approaches that are difficult due to muddy terrain, splashed puddles, or even unexpected rainstorms. If the terrain itself is demanding, instead of wet weather, then Vibram's rubber sole and Mammut's triple-layer midsole keeps you moving confidently and comfortably, so much so that slipping into climbing shoes becomes more begrudged.

  • Sturdy approach shoe with phenomenal protection for rugged terrain
  • Gore-Tex Performance Comfort fends off weather, mud, and puddles
  • Liquid Rubber reinforces leather upper from abrasion and wear
  • Memory foam inserts enhance fit at ankle, shin, and instep
  • Damping element made from three different densities underfoot
  • Vibram rubber sole with sharp lugs for reliable traction

Excellent

  • Size Bought: 12.5

Normally wear a 12W, but decided to give these a try and bought a 12.5. The fit is great. They're just about the most comfortable shoes I've worn. The support is great and they're built like tanks. I sure hope Mammut keeps on making the Ayako.

no for general hiking

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: 10

Sole is insanely stiff. Its like a wearing a hardcore boot without the ankle support. So when you hit a rock or stick on the trail this will take you foot and twist it.
I have had other approach shoes from salewa wildfires that were nothing like this.

I will say they are beautiful shoes and totaly waterproof. If you want a shoe that is like a tank boot then this might be the shoe for you.

Quality shoe

    I switched to only using approach shoes for hiking in Arizona and Utah awhile ago and don’t think I’ll ever go back to regular hikers. I’ve had the guide tennies, Boulder X and now these. So far these are my favorite. I was hesitant to order these, because I’d never tried on any Mammut shoes before. First inspection is this shoe is well made, high quality, great traction and nice and sticky for scrambling. Heel would slip initially but after about the first 45 mins of hiking in them, it formed to the foot and didn’t slip anymore. I have a pretty wide foot and these have plenty of room. I’ve only used them once for a short 4 miler with some scrambling but I’m impressed so far. The Sizing seems pretty accurate.

    Thank you for the review, John!

    I forgot about the heal slip. I thought it was just me but mine did the same thing. I thought i just had the wrong size for me. Also it hurt the top of my foot where the shoe bends,.
