Hey everyone,

I have a pair of Merrel hiking shoes

that I was planning on using for this 3 peak challenge. Does this sound okay or would you strongly recommend boots?

Personally I prefer boots. But plenty of people wear these shoes. They would only be more of a problem in wet weather when your feet might be more likely to get wet.
As long as they are broken in, and you've done a fair few miles in them before you start is the main thing.

Yeah I also had bought these for Hiking but I have never used them. Hoping to use them soon in near future but recently I have to purchase the pattern leggings and tank tops for my workouts. It will be quite helpful if you can suggest any good place to buy that at inexpensive rates.

The main reason why you need shoes is to protect your feet from rocks and debris on the trail. Hiking footwear should also have good grip, keep your feet dry, and be light enough to move easily. Many Appalachian Trail through-hikers use trail running shoes. So you don't need hiking boots, maybe.
