I think it’s also worth considering the size of the person carrying the gear. I’m 6’3 wide-shouldered and even really fit I weigh  200 lbs. hiking in anything but high ankle boots is never in the cards for me. I roll my ankle at least 5 times in a full hiking day and with full boots I’m fine. If you’re tall you can try a lower cut but it might cost you some ankle problems.
