2 MAMMUT MTR 201 PRO LOW £120
This is a shoe that takes rugged ground in its stride. There’s a sticky sole with good lugs that grip well across a range of terrain. The upper is secure and robust with a strong toe bumper, and the laces adjust to give a secure fit.
In terms of cushioning, it performs well on hard ground and there is also a good level of support, including through the midfoot. These are not light or speedy but certainly ideal for long hauls on demanding ground.
