Shoes vs boots? Climbing Mt Bat ur in Bali

Jump to last reply

Hello! I'll be climbing Mt Batur in Balu and Mt Fuji in Japan in the next few weeks! I'm average fitness level and hike around here in Ga but I'm not an experienced climber. Friends have said the first climb is steep and has lots of loose rock. I've been researching footwear for days! Boots vs hiking shoes vs approach shoes! Help! I'm 42 and I do need good support after foot surgery 2 years ago. My knees and ankles probably do too;) what do those of you with experience recommend? I was looking atvmetrell siren sport but then though maybe I should go with boot... Or approach! See I'm spinning in circles! Help with other gear suggestions would also be very much appreciated! Jacket, small pack...etc! Thanks!
