It really depends on the amount of walking and hiking you will be doing as well as the type of hikes. Are you looking at more difficult hikes or simpler hikes near mountain tops ? Most trails listed as "easy" here (https://www.myswissalp s.com/hiking) can be done without special hiking shoes (especially the shorter trips). But you'll be more comfortable and less liklely to slip wearing some type of hiking shoe or boot.
I always prefer to have some ankle support regardless of the trail.
As for weather, it typically drops 1 degree (C) per 100 meter gain in elevation. Lauterbrunnen is around 25 degrees C this week at 800m. Go up to 2000 meters (https://www.myswissalp s.com/hiking/maennlich en-kleinescheidegg) and it is probably 13-15 degrees. Jungfraujoch is another 1000 meters higher than that (currently 5 degrees).
