La Sportiva TX2 Evo Leather

Colour: Charcoal/Moss
Size: EU 40

The La Sportiva TX2 Evo Leather is a technical approach shoe with an enveloping fit thanks to the caged lacing system. Designed for moving through and across any terrain as part of the Traverse X series of shoes, as its name suggests - the TX2 Evo is an evolution of the classic TX2 model.

Pioneering La Sportiva's new environmental technology and processes, the TX2 Evo Leather boasts a host of re-used and recycled components throughout its design. The sole unit is designed for quick and easy re-soling (at authorised re-solers) - by being able to replace the tread below the yellow rand line and therefore not compromising the uppers or structure of the shoe. Its original sole is Vibram Idrogrip - ideal on wet, slippy surfaces and is a compound inspired by free climbing rubber. Although the tread itself has been re designed, the TX2 Evo still boasts the popular 'Climbing zone' at the toe for maximum grip on technical terrain.

The Suede upper is tanned using a metal free process, while the PU Tech-Lite areas on the toe and heel protect the areas most prone to abrasion and the foot itself. The hybrid approach Ortholite insole is made from recyled materials, while the midsole is made in part by processing used scraps of compressed EVA into a new sheet. 

The lacing system is a continuation from previous successful models, derived from Mythos climbing shoe - which regulates tension and inner volumes in one simple move. The TX2 Evo Leather are the perfect climbing companion thanks to the C2 Combo Cord system that allows you to store the shoes quickly and compactly on your harness. With features that combine the comfort of a trail running shoe to the technical characteristics of a climbing shoe, Traverse X is the ultimate expression of moving in the mountains quickly and safety.

TX2 Evo - renewed design, reused materials and fully resole-able.

    Seem great so far, loads of grip and very comfortable. Went for a half size above my usual UK shoe size

    First time I’ve purchased from Rock 43, Run but entirely impressed with the product, price and service. Really Great 👍

    I have had 3 pairs of La Sportiva TX2 and would have bought a 4th had they been available still. I have always had size 46 and it is a perfect fit. My big toe is long and straight and the asymmetric shape of the TX2 that favours the big toe is perfect. To my frustration the TX2 Evo Leather has a different shape at the front. It is now symmetrical and so the 42 is a fraction too small. That was not obvious until I had worn them for a day so cannot return them. I shall have to resort to hammering the stiffness out of the toe section and hope that works. As I said, very frustrating. I feel this Evo version is a step back, even if it is more robust and able to be resoled.

    My go to approach shoe

    Great lightweight approach shoe. It fits my feet well, is good looking, and performs on approach and in the city.

    Excellent approach shoes

    A great replacement for my last generation TX2s. Comfortable, understated, and great grip.
