I love my lightweight hikers for backpacking on established trails in summer conditions. Taking the weight off my feet is awesome. They don't last all that long if you log lots of kms, but the comfort is great.

I use my Hanwag mountaineering boots for summer routes where I am off trail, scrambling, light mountaineering or will need to negotiate substantial snow. My old Rocky boots have a 3/4 shank, so they're pretty decent over long hauls comfort wise.
