The La Sportiva TX Guide is a technical approach shoe designed for mountain guides and serious climbers looking for a top performance product for approach routes and climbing.

The TX Guide is the most technical shoe in the La Sportiva TX Series. Versatile, lightweight and protective, it is ideal for walk-run & climb approach routes as suggested by the aesthetics derived from a perfect combination of running/approach and the technical solutions inspired by the climbing world (sole, rand and lacing).

The shoe uses the Tech-fit: dry and snug fitting for maximum performance. It is very stable at the toe and allows to keep the edge in climbing. The highly abrasion resistant uppers are made from a single layer for optimisation of internal volumes, with protective internal reinforcements in microfiber and external TPU reinforcements to guarantee abrasion resistance. The lacing is asymmetrical and approach-style up to the toe for maximum fit accuracy while the back part of the boot recalls the Mythos Style and allows for a perfect support at the heel. The protective Climbing-inspired rand uses PU-TECH Lite. The construction of the tongue derives from the solutions applied to running shoes: the cuff prevents the entry of external elements during walking. The sole/midsole package uses shock absorbing, dual compressed EVA on the heel and a stabiliser on the forefoot: the front part of the midsole is co-printed with a TPU layer that acts as a climbing zone stabiliser, medial shank and rock-guard layer on the forefoot. The Vibram MegaGrip and Idrogrip dual compound sole is the perfect combination of grip and durability while the pronounced heel facilitates downhill braking and provides greater uphill grip.

      Look the part

      Well these certainty look up to it I have yet to put them to the test proper, bought for via Ferrata and other mountain adventures, I’m sure they will be great as I have other La Sportiva shoes from the TX range and they have all so far been great.

      Great technical shoe

      From the photos, I was hoping for something a little more multi-purpose, but as an approach / climbing shoe it's a serious piece of kit. Just be aware it's a technical shoe and not really suited to everyday / casual / gym use!
