Adidas adiZero XT
Price Paid: US $85
They are okay. I've taken them out 4 times (including a 19 km canyon rim run) on mostly technical trails (rocks, uneven surface, scree, hills) and there were no serious problems.
They don't allow a good feel for the ground, perhaps because the big lugs dampen out fine resolution sensation. They are flexible enough that they don't restrict foot movement. They don't grip the foot into the boot very well - had some slippage and got a blister. They breathe very well.
Not a bad shoe for smaller runs (say, less than 10 km) and as a second shoe for rotations.
Price Paid: $60
Great fit for my narrow feet. Lightweight with a great feel for the trail. I use it as a trail racing shoe and love it.

Lightweight adidas adiZero XT trail-running shoes help you take on the nastiest of trails while offering up forefoot propulsion and stride efficiency. Synthetic leather and abrasion-resistant nylon mesh uppers are lightweight, durable and highly breathable. Nylon linings wick moisture and dry quickly. Molded respoEVA sockliners offer anatomic fit and superb step-in comfort. Plush EVA midsoles with extended adiPRENE®+ under forefeet retain natural propulsive forces for enhanced forefoot efficiency. Thermoplastic urethane arch shanks provide torsional stability on uneven terrain. Flexible rubber outsoles grip reliably on both dry and muddy surfaces.
