[at-l] Light weight footgear

What is the lightest footgear that you have used on rocky trails (like the
AT)?  I've heard lots of reasons why one needs:

(a) heavy leather boots
(b) light weight leather boots
(c) light weight fabric and leather boots
(c) running shoes or low cut boots

I'd be real curious to hear about actual experiences with lighter weight
footgear.  The "gospel" of light weight footgear seems to be:

(1) keep your pack light
(2) walk carefully
(3) train with light weight footgear to keep your ankles strong and flexible

Has anyone had any good experiences with light weight footgear?
How about bad experiences?
