Normally I have shoes with boreum on them to keep from slipping and to protect his feet from harsh ground while trail riding.
I ride with boots...I've put over 500 miles on Easy Boot Epics and over 500 on Renegades....I bought another pair of Renegades in September so I guess I like the Renegades a little better....
I think the boots provide better traction on slick rocks etc, than shoes do.
