Hiking Shoes, or Hiking Boots?

Camino de santigo boots
Question forum the forum:

I have read a lot of conflicting information – some say a good pair of hiking boots is required, especially if you are going in the Winter or Spring. Other sites say that hiking boots are overkill and that hiking shoes, or even a good pair of running shoes are sufficient. What do you think ❓
