Looking for new (trail) shoes

I can now put my fingers through the sides of both of my NorthFace Singletracks, the duct tape in the left heel is working out well and I didn't get a blister where the heel cup had started pressing and the liner is wearing out. The soles and midsole seem fine but the rest of the shoes have seen better days after 350 miles.

On Monday Saucony came out to =PR= in Leesburg and had their Men's ProGrid Peregrine available. I really liked how light they were and the grip felt good on the moderate terrain near Leesburg. The cushioning seemed somewhat minimal but sufficient (two days post a foot pounding 50k). The minimal drop seemed fine. If they had a wider toe box I would have bought a pair


On Tuesday Adidas came out to =PR= Ashburn and brought out a something zero, I don't think it is released yet. It it was super light and felt cool and breezy. The cushioning was not quiet enough for me and as is the trend the toe box was narrow even having gone up a size to get it wide enough for my foot in general.
