Mammut Redburn Pro (2015)


The Mammut Redburn Pro is a fairly light shoe that offers incredible rock performance for its price. You get a stiff sole with a smooth climbing zone under the toe for better performance on rock. The other lugs are slightly shallow. The lacing provides a more precise fit for use on rock while a rubber rand offers durability. The upper is synthetic and suede with no waterproof lining. 4/5


The Mammut Redburn Pro comes in sizes 6-13 for men and 4-8½ for women, with that toe lacing helping to provide a very neat and precise fit that would be of benefit for more careful travel over rock. The tongue sits neatly and generally this felt a little less cumbersome than some other shoes. 5/5


That lacing down the top of the shoe is well-padded by the tongue, so the Mammut Redburn Pro felt very comfortable and the upper generally appeared to mould to the foot. The toe is narrower than some shoes, so it may suit my narrow feet better than those with chunkier toes. The stiff sole was also comfortable without its stiffness being overbearing. 5/5

In use

On rock and when walking rocky paths the Mammut Redburn Pro is a great shoe. But the lugs aren’t ideal for muddier terrain as they’re fairly shallow, and there’s no waterproof lining, so again it is best to steer clear of boggy moorland with these. But use them on rocky ground and for approaching crags, and they’ll work well. 4/5


An excellent price for a shoe offering this level of rock-orientated performance. But higher prices bring even better performance. 4/5


The Mammut Redburn Pro is great for approaching crags and tackling rocky ground, but others have waterproof linings and deeper sole lugs for wet and soft ground. 4.4/5
