La Sportiva TX4 R

Colour: Turquoise/Yellow
Turquoise/Yellow
Size: EU 43.5

A very special edition of the iconic TX4 model. The TX4 R is a limited edition pair of La Sportiva's best-selling approach shoes, featuring the much-loved classic designs with modern-day performance.

This eye-catching shoe features the application of their classic logos, the reference to the mythical slogan “Climbing on the Moon” and the use of the historical colours that characterized the golden years of climbing is a real tribute to the origins of La Sportiva. Origins in which the resoling of footwear was common practice and thanks to the implementation of the Resole Platform insert, which facilitates the resoling of the product, TX4-R extends its life cycle.

Perfect for prolonged use in the mountains, the La Sportiva TX4 is a sturdy approach shoe designed so you can cover technical terrain in comfort. From rocky scrambles, easy climbs, via ferrata and muddy approaches, the TX4 will serve you well.

Going into more detail the La Sportiva TX4 are built on a technical approach shaped last, providing plenty of support with a great fit, all encased with leather uppers and a grippy sole.

The hard-wearing leather uppers are extra protected with an all-around rand, providing the shoes with plenty of protection against rocks and vegetation, dramatically increasing the lifespan of the shoes. The lacing system, inspired by climbing shoes, really pulls the shoe around your foot, so you have total confidence in how the shoe keeps to your foot on uneven ground.

The grippy sole has a smooth 'climbing zone' at the toe taking inspiration from rock climbing shoe technology to provide maximum rubber contact when standing on small edges. The rear of the sole features the La Sportiva 'Impact Brake System' which basically puts as many lugs as possible in a small area to absorb impact but arranged in such a way that there are plenty of sides to the lugs to act as brakes, giving better traction on rough ground. The sole is made from Vibram Mega-Grip a proven winner across a range of approach shoes, providing a great balance of stickiness and durability.

The TX4 are a key part of the La Sportiva Approach Shoe range, and is a serious consideration for those looking for a robust technical approach shoe for long days in the mountains.

La sportiva TX4 R

Excellent. Comfortable straight from the box. Whilst a little apprehensive initially if the TX4R would be up to the task of Swiss klettersteig (via feratta ) I found Enough stiffness and support in the sole for the ladders and stemples. Then great grip, exceeding expectations, on the descents on all terrain types. Very pleased with the purchase and looking forward to scrambling in them in the UK.
