A burlier version of the TX2, La Sportiva's TX3 Approach Shoe is what we lace up for everything from high ridge crossings to brushy approaches with multiple creek crossings. The shoe's lightweight polyester mesh upper is breathable for hot summer days and dumps water quickly.
To determine fit, these have limited use around the house and the office. No trail use.
The shoe is supported by a full-wrap rubber rand for extra protection from abrasive terrain, and is fitted with a Vibram Techlite toe rand for extra purchase on more technical approaches. Underfoot, La Sportiva gave the the TX3 its MEMlex midsole for comfortable cushioning and added a Vibram MegaGrip sole for a sure-footed feel on high, exposed traverses.
