La Sportiva TX4 GTX 

Light, tough, grippy, waterproof and really, really good looking... 

Sportiva have made yet another excellent approach shoe and we've now got it with the Gore-Tex lining ideal for UK approach and scrambling. Tough enough to take a years abuse from Llanberis locals wearing them near enough everyday so they should put up with most walks of life for a while longer.

La Sportiva says - (their description must be an italian translation)

Leather shoe with Gore-Tex Extended Comfort designed for technical approach routes and via ferrata, part of the Traverse X approach series: ideal for prolonged use by mountain guides and all those who work in the mountains. Every detail has been studied to guarantee grip, comfort and protection during approach routes and to encourage technical use right up to the base of the wall. The TX4 is a sturdy “built to last” boot, thanks to the STB Control System™ that provides structure and torsion stability.The hard wearing leather uppers have an essential design and are high abrasion resistance thanks to the PU TechLite all-around rand: The Vibram MegaGrip sole with climbing zone at the toe and Impact Brake System at the rear are designed for climbing routes and return trails on technical terrain. The lacing system derives from the Mythos climbing shoe and regulates tension and internal volume in one easy move. Traverse X the ultimate expression of moving in the mountains in comfort, speed and safety. and adaptability in heel hooks when bouldering.

We're not sure about the flagrant bouldering bit there at the end, all their grammar too, but they are excellent shoe's and have proved them selves on the feet of some rather heavy footed customers of ours. The famous Oliver Cain couldn't kill a pair, even after a year of hard graft the sole was the only bit going through and that's to be expected. 

Grade 3 scrambles and some HVS's have had ascents by these shoe's.
