comment FiveFingers or hiking boots?
Very good and comprehensive answer, although I would disagree that the answer is subjective. For mountain walking in Scotland five-fingers just aren't suitable, particularly with a 30lb pack and if you're doing a multi-day. You really need some cushioning on your soles and good ankle support. They're great when unencumbered, but follow the lead of all the mountain walkers out there who don't use them, at least for the first trip.
