Very uncomfortable for me, even for 2-3 hours hiking. Gore-tex membrane doesn't ensure waterproofing after a couple of years usage.

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.

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!
