Hi All, I am planning to start late April in Toulouse and walk to Puente la Reina. Can anybody who has walked this route in recent years advise if walking boots are required or will I be oh with good walking shoes.
The 2024 Camino guides will be coming out little by little. Here is a collection of the ones that are out so far.
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.
