Very uncomfortable for me, even for 2-3 hours hiking. Gore-tex membrane doesn't ensure waterproofing after a couple of years usage.
- Very uncomfortable
- Not waterproof
I used these occasionally for 6 years now. Mostly for summer and spring mountain treks, lately just for approaching alpine routes during spring.
I changed the insole hoping to make them more comfortable. Unsuccessful. They become painful even after 2-3 hours approach. They squeeze the tip of of my toes when wearing moderate cushion socks, even if I'm pretty sure the size is right.
They are no longer waterproof. Spring traveling through occasional snow fields plus some rain showers was enough to have my socks wet. Lacing system is basic but ok, traction on wet rock is terrible. The only good thing about them might be the durability, if I don't consider here the water resistance.
After last painful experience with them, I am sure I will not use them ever anymore. Doesn't seem to be the right boots for such jobs.

Last resort. Found in the town of Ludlow, UK. I was mid hike on the Offas Dyke Hike. With these boots I was able to finish the hike in Crepstow.
- Wide enough for my feet even with blisters.
M feet were in really bad shape due to toe and heel blisters. I found these low Trezetas in Ludlow, UK. I wore these, and gave my other two pairs of hiking boots to charity.
I like these Trezetas because they are wide enough that I could wear them comfortably even with taped up heel and toe blisters. I kept going even though I had a shin splint, which I taped up with duct tape and walked for the next 25 miles. After that, I removed the tape and was able to finish the walk.

Extremely comfortable, strong sole grip, only the ice can stop these boots.
They are typical summer-trekking/hiking-boots, but I used them on a ski-nordic path in Val di Fiemme, Dolomiti, Italy, just two days ago. I hiked for two hours, and at the end, some drops of cold water were penetrated frome the point of the boots, because the snow freezed on them. A detail that confirm the seasons in wich the Trezeta Hypo must be used: all, except deep-winter, for which nabuk-boots are recommended.
Anyway, Hypo are quite excellent!

Very comfortable, made of great materials. I've been wearing only Trezeta boots for the past six years, even if I have to import them.
