Vibram Megagrip Sole
The La Sportiva TX4 approach shoe has a Vibram Megagrip sole, which was developed for use on slippery surfaces in all weathers. Vibram is one of the world’s most well-known producers of shoe soles and as a result, Megagrip is not only incredibly grippy over a range of surfces, it’s super durable, making it the ultimate shoe sole for demanding activities such as hiking, trekking and backpacking.
The La Sportiva TX4 approach shoe has a MEMlex Midsole, which comprises of 80% EVA foam and 20% SBR rubber. This combination provides the best combination of rebound, support and stability in a lightweight package.
Impact Brake System
The La Sportiva TX4 features La Sportiva’s innovative Impact Brake System; a proprietary technology in outsole design where the lugs of the soles are oriented in opposing slanted directions. This opposition increases braking power by an average of 20% and decreases impact forces by an average of 20% so going downhill is just as comfortable as going up.
