Suitable Footwear for Mt Kinabalu

We are climbing Mt Kinabalu later in the year. I would like some advise on footwear - climbing/tramping boots or are good trail shoes okay?

A pair of good running shoes would do just fine.

Have to agree with MK - good running shoes will do just fine as long as the soles are non-slip.

The last 1.5km to the summit is a sweeping rock gradient (as opposed to big mud/rock/wooden stairs of the rest of the trail) and it can get a little tricky to negotiate in the early morning dew / rain if your soles are slippery.
