hiking shoes

I will be doing a trek to Amadablam Base camp. I have high top hiking shoes and a pair of low top ones that I love. Which are advisable?

I don't know the last bit of the route, but as far as Tengpoche / Dingpoche you'd get by in low top shoes (and still be passed by porters wearing flip-flops !). My preference is for high-top boots which give a bit more ankle support and protection on the rocky bits, but this is a personal view. I've seen many people trekking in trainers

Given that current boots are fairly lightweight why not take both ?
