What kind of shoes/boots do you recommend for a 5 day walk from San Francisco to Inverness in early September? Daily distance range is 7 - 17 miles.

This is a great hike! I'm excited for you. My recommendation would depend on whether you prefer ankle support or lighter weight boots. For backpacking I typically use heavier-duty hiking boots with high ankle support. For a walkabout where you're carrying a daypack, light hiking boots work well. Solomon, Merrell, and Asolo offer good light hiking boots. Follow this link for REI's boot selection guide, offering advice depending on expected usage and foot type. 

Have fun!
