The La Sportiva TX3 GTX approach shoes are perfect for technical approach routes. The approach shoes are made of a scratch-proof mesh fabric and a protective rim, which will reliably protect you from rock and rubble. In addition, the toe is equipped with very thick rubber for added protection. Plus, the GORE-TEX Extended Comfort membrane makes the shoe waterproof, breathable and will keep your feet feeling fresh with its moisture-wicking qualities. The shoe is also equipped with the STB Control System in the heel, which serves to stabilise the foot in the shoe and allows you to have ultimate control on difficult terrain. The EVA cushioning will take the strain off your feet, whilst the Vibram Megagrip outsole will provide all the traction you need on all sorts of terrain. The Ortholite Approach footbed supports the foot and provides stability. Thanks to the Impact Brake System at the heel of the La Sportiva TX3 GTX, you'll have no problems with the downhills after long alpine tours.
