Hi, I walked that great route in October and November last year. I was happy to have my light hiking boots, especially after Oloron Ste Marie thru the Somport and on the Camino Aragon. Enjoy!

It's a wonderful path @johnnyk66 I've only ever worn hiking shoes so I can't comment about boots, but I had no problem with my shoes on the Arles / Aragones way. But they were Salomon with a thick and robust tread, not lightweight trail runners. Footwear is such an individual thing - and I guess it depends what you're used to. Good luck with your preparations. Enjoy.

PS I just noticed the other caminos you've walked, If you had no problem with hiking shoes on the Le Puy, Primitivo, I don't think you would have any issues with them on the Arles / Aragones.
