I have a pair of inov-8 315s for mud and Brooks Cascadia 8 for dry firm trails as they have more cushioning.
the idea of Neutral/Stability shoes etc seems to be going out of favour and is rare in trail shoes anyway because you are constantly shifting and rolling a little. Just go for a pair that are comfortable and have the kind of grip you need.
if you are getting advice in a running shop check they are trail runners themselves. I have heard all kinds of crap from people in what are suppose to be reputable running store. And stay out of Sports Direct at all costs!
