Tom Coxwrote a review of La Sportiva Hyper Mid GTX Hiking Boot - Men's on August 16, 2016
Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
Fit: Runs small
I've put about 50 miles on them and they hike great. I climbed 1000ft of class 3/4 rock and they felt really great, but the wear and tear is noticeable and my confidence in their longevity is not high. Although I can't say how long they "should" last since usage varies and depends on the user. I'm a big fan of La Sportiva and have never had an issue, but the rubber on the sole, as well as the leather upper and laces on these have worn quick. I am hard on boots, but for what I have done in these so far has had a surprising effect. Hopefully they last a few more trips before a catastrophic failure. They run typical La Sportiva size, meaning I go one size up in US Men's.
