La Sportiva TX Top GTX Mountaineering Boots

Apr 4, 2019

Category: Gear

There are a lot of excellent hiking boots on the market, but those looking to partake in speedier, more grueling climbs require footwear that is lighter, more durable, and more resistant to the elements. That’s why La Sportiva enlisted the help of expert ultra-runner, Anton Krupicka, to create their new TX Top GTX approach shoes.

Boasting a Vibram Megagrip outsole, this heavily-treaded footwear is perfect for tackling rocky terrain — even when said terrain is a bit wet or icy. They’re bolstered by an ultralight construction, weighing in at just 17.6 ounces in total, that hinges on a GORE-TEX-treated, waterproof and abrasion-resistant integrated zip-up gaiter. Pair that with an ultra-comfortable Ortholite footbed, integrated rubber pads for extra ankle protection, and a crampon-compatible construction, and these are some of the finest alpine boots we’ve ever seen. The La Sportiva TX Top GTX boots are set to release this fall for $199.
