For long runs in the Whites I have used the Brooks Cascadias for years. They seem to fit me well and are durable as hell.

I use both the Brooks Cascadias and the Scarpa Crux.  I love the Cascadias for trail runs, but they do beat your feet up a bit on the rocks when compared with the Scarpa.  For anything outside of the White Mountains (ie "normal" hiking), I use the Cascadias almost exclusively. 

I think true approach shoes (with sticky rubber) are the perfect White Mountain hiking shoe.

I've never had that issue and I usually wear socks. Hiked Fremont, Titcomb Basin area, in'em. They're my shoe of choice for all but the wettest conditions
