I've had two pairs of red trangos. I have pretty much used them year round in Idaho even though they aren't insulated. As George said, if your foot is sinking in the snow, you may get cold feet. On the al west trip, I got cold feet if I stopped walking for very long. They are good with crampons and they are very popular with guides- I've had guides on Hood, Rainier, and in Peru wear them. My biggest complaint is that the fabric on the sides does not hold up well to the crappy rock in the lost rivers or boulder mountains- I pretty much tore the sides out of each pair in one summer of Idaho talus and scree bashing. Because of that, I moved to the alp gtx that splattski shows in the picture- this has sturdier sides and has held up much better so far (or maybe I just climbed on better rock this year...). I think the fit is pretty true (although they are in European sizes which does not completely translate well to US sizing)
