Light weight hiking boots vs trail runner?

Posted by mthawkins on 3/4/2014 at 14:52

I'll be doing some jungle trekking and Everest base camp while I'm in SEA,
And I also hike locally. Curious if it's better to go with trail runners or light weight boots?
Considering boots will offer much more support
Gortex or no?

Do u have bad ankles?

I like extra support cause ive done my ankle a couple of times.

Another option is to buy ankle straps like they use in.muay thai. Pharmacies sell them or sports shops.
