Hey! We are two guys in our mid 20's who are walking the Camino de Santiago (800+ Km distance) this june-july. We have been looking at other blogs for recommendations for proper footwear and still cannot come to a valid decision between boots, shoes or sandals. We do however hear that ECCO provides some of the best products. So..

What footwear (preferable ECCO) can you guys recommend? We run and walk on a daily basis, so do we still need ankle support (boots) or will it be too hot and will our feet cook up?
Walking/running shoes would be desirable as they are light and your feet can breath but are they too rough on your ankles?
Sandals seems comfortable as well but as we haven't walked the camino before, we don't know exactly how rocky the terrain will be and therefore don't know if we will crush our toes constantly when wearing sandals on the hike.

We much appreciate the advice and tips! :)
