The TX3 from La Sportiva is quite frankly the greatest approach shoe ever made. The TX3 sports a wide last, breathable mesh construction and stiffness that gives the TC Pro a run for its money. From mellow roadside approaches to seemingly endless 4th class slogs in the backcountry, this shoe does it all. In fact, the TX3 climbs so well that your pricey top of the line trad shoe will quickly begin to seem worthless. So if you want to cruise endless approaches and impress that hottie at the crag with your impeccable style, pick up a pair of TX3’s. You’ll thank us later.
