Hiking Boot Bother

Progress continues as far as planning for the climb goes, but I have hit one little snag. Finding a pair of decent walking boots that are my size in Mexico! It's not easy. I am a UK size 11, and it's very rare I find a shoe in Mexico bigger than a 9. Even then it's a 9 and a half, with a couple of tens, in a very limited range of styles. By limited I mean one or two! The search goes on. Failing that - how much of a bad idea is it to climb Izta in a pair of trainers?!
