I will be in Lauterbrunnen next month and I am debating if I should take some trail shoes (Keen brand without ankle support) or rent hiking boots in Lauterbrunnen. The types of hikes (easy to moderate) I may do would be the following: north face trail, murren/grutschalp, mannlichen-kleine scheidegg, hiker's loop from lauterbrunnen, etc.
Are hiking boots absolutely necessary for these types of hikes? My Keen shoes are broken in and comfortable.
Any suggestions would be helpful
