You should wear a pair of boots which are comfortable for trail walking yet able to accept crampons. You will find more ice this year since we are experiencing quite a drought. I like the La Sprotiva Trango S But this may be a bit over-kill for what you want. Just be sure the boots are comfortable, yet have a stiff enough sole to hold a crampon.
