The "TX" in the TX4's stands for Traverse X; La Sportiva's range ideally suited towards prolonged use in the mountains and technical climbing routes but also with a bit of everyday use thrown in.

La Sportiva have transferred their knowledge from stiffer mountain boots into their approach range, naming it their STB Control System. Essentially, the upper wraps around the midsole at the middle of the shoe which enhances stability on traverses and rough terrain. This also provides a more supportive and snug fit, in turn increasing the comfort and precision while climbing. 

Durability was a main concern while designing the Traverse X range, therefore the upper's of the shoe are a thick suede leather, with a tough PU TechLite rubber rand wrapped around the lower of the TX4 and around the toe area to offer increased durability and essential abrasion resistance while either in the mountains, climbing or via ferrata. 

Moving onto the sole (arguably the most important part), La Sportiva have chosen the widely used Vibram Mega Grip to stick the TX4's to almost any surface. Mega Grip is a super soft and sticky rubber compound, originally designed for those who frequently encounter slippery surfaces while also needing the ability to work in the dry too. A soft compound provides large amounts of grip on rock and wet surfaces, however the Traverse X needed to be a good all rounder on not only rock and gravel but also mud and slop. The TX4 features a raised heel to aid grip on downhill traverses, appropriately named a Trail Bite Heel. This not only aids you while going downhill but also provides essential grip when winter sets in and we inevitably enter slop season.

The TX4's are perfect all rounder for just about everything outdoor related, with every detail studied to guarantee grip, comfort and protection in a wide range of conditions.

Excellent customer service. Really detailed easy to understand product descriptions on the Trekitt website, and gear reviews on the Trekitt YouTube channel made it so easy to choose the right backpack for me.

Amazing service! Very helpful in regards sizing and what most matched my needs, despite this being done over the internet. YouTube videos of products being examined are very useful also. Would definitely use again, very fast and efficient delivery. Brilliant! Highly recommended!
