And went with the Keens. I bought them for an Inca Trail hike (and I can't remember who was asking but yes -- you'll want something with ankle support for the descents, and yes there's lots of walking along pretty sheer drops). I found that the cushioning was far superior. But everyone's different. REI staff are knowledgeable and will let you try on as many pairs as you like and walk around as much as you need.
