The lacing system wraps its way up the uppers and comes around the back of the heel for a super-secure fit, combined with the Vibram Mega Grip sole unit, you will have total faith scrambling on technical terrain, downhill braking and uphill grip.

Absolutely an outstanding piece of kit

Quick and simple service

La Sportiva

Great shoe, exceptionally comfortable. Using it to walk some long trails. So far it has lived up to the expectation. Size wise I am a street 7 but I always go one higher and it seemed to be just right

Stewart D.
Great service and shoes - one of few stockists

Excellent experience - first pair didn’t fit comfortably but return process was simple and quick turnaround by the shop meant replacement shoes arrived a few days later

Tx5 low GTX

Nice shoe, used these once before with different sole pattern.
This updated version has much better grip particularly on the descent paths.
The upper is quite stiff to start off with but starts to soften to foot shape after a few trips out.
