We first used water shoes by Salomon, tech amphibians, but they do not last long. The net rips in the rocks.
Then we changed to trail running shoes like Talon 212. They are fine and I will continue using them.
It is true that your feet may become tired and little painful in long talus fields toward the end of the hike especially with heavy load (what I had when the son was younger).
This year one person in the area with us had mid angle light hiking boots and also they seemed to dry quite fast after crossing bogs and rivers, though we had crocks/sandals with us what we used in river crossing if boots were dry. They didn’t go wet so easily in low vegetation.
So, we didn’t use leather boots.
