Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Fit: True to size
I've used these shoes now for >250 miles, all on trail and most recently running around Mt Hood. I disagree with the reviews here that say it fits narrowly, or that it hasn't enough padding in the heel.
For comparison, I have run through two pairs of cross-lite's, and a pair each of anacondas, wildcats, and multiple other branded shoes. Compared to other LaSportiva shoes, if you fit for length, the width is greater. I've usually had issues with the width of some of their other shoes, but the Bushido continues to fit my foot, even with swelling during the day. The durability of the shoe ha been better than any of their other models as well.
The shoe feels great while running-- it's not uber-sensitive, but what you lose in sensitivity you gain in protection (toe guard!), a bit of heel cushioning, and a great underfoot rock guard. The trail is aggressive enough for all but pure mud, but not as knoby as the xlite or anacondas. This is a bonus for running on firmer surfaces or on smoother rock. The tongue is also bonded with a nice elastic guard on each side, so the shoes fit like a sock but still breathe.
What else is there to say? They're light, and they look sexy.
(I've marked fit true to size. LaSportiva sizes vary between ALL shoes I've tried, so you should try them on in person.)
