Shoes or Boots??????

Walking the WHW next May. Am I better to wear Trail shoes or boots?

I have boots I walk the munros in but would these be too heavy for a hard packed trail route?

Thoughts would be appreciated.

Thanks

Re: winter jacket

Hi Thomas,
I got one last year, so far has been excellent, wore it on Ben Chonzie in January. -22 and was still toasty.
I have since bought a few Keela products and not been disappointed in any of them.

Ben Chonzie

Started and finished an excellent clear day. Views were absoloutly spectacular. Set off about 9:15 and back at the car by 3pm.

Wind picked up at the summit but well worth the huffing & puffing all the way up. :clap:
