It depends on how much weight you're carrying and if you're used to backpacking in trailrunners. I hike or backpack only in trailrunners or sandals. I haven't had boots in 12 years. Did the OML in trail runners earlier this year and was fine. But if you are carrying a lot of weight, you may want the extra support from the boots.
I will wildly generalize. Boots for clumsy people with heavy packs and trail runner/shoes for those nimble with light packs.My father always told me not to make general statements.
Barefoot is always an option
