Hiking Zion Narrows to rent or not to rent (equipment).

Jump to last reply

I'm headed back to the Narrows. Last time I didn't research. We jumped into the river in Tevas with no poles and had an amazing time. Well, this time Im researching! So now Im nervous about shoes and whether or not to rent poles. We will have kids and parents that are 60 something with us. The kids will do what they can and then my husband or I will turn around with them. My husbands parents have asked about shoes of course. Because my own experience is vastly different (tevas, which I thought were great) vs renting shoes. I'm not sure what to tell them. They are both in good shape. As of now we have no plans to rent poles. But I'm thinking now they hike in old tennis shoes with the help of poles.
Any thoughts??? Thanks!
