Trail shoes versus boots for hiking the EBC trek, which one is better?

Hello all,

I hope this message finds you well and you’re having a wonderful day!

Quick question for y’all – I have hiked the Annapurna Circuit a few years back in trail

shoes, I was curious to know your thoughts on trail shoes versus boots for hiking the EBC trek in early March?

The trail shoes I currently hike in are Hoka Soeedgoat 5’s.

Also…do you recommend Gators?

Thanks everyone for your wisdom 😀

I too prefer trail runners, but will go with warmer boots if I’ll regularly be in snow.
I’ve done that trek in a March and if the upcoming weather is clear and it hasn’t snowed recently I would feel fine in trail runners and no need for gators.
Have a great trip and hope you’ll be using a guide as it is so inexpensive compared to the cultural benefits and will make a major impact for the guide and their family. They’re really hurting from the past two years.
