Taking cues from speedy trail runners and techy rock shoes, the men's La Sportiva TX Guide approach shoes provide support, comfort and grip so you can move fast and light on vertical terrain.


  • Running-inspired fit and cuff construction is ideal for moving fast on vertical terrain
  • Mythos climbing shoe style lacing with heel loop and to-the-toe lacing enables micro-adjustments and a super comfortable fit
  • Ultra-weave jacquard uppers are breathable and durable; minimally sewn TPU reinforcements around the lacing harness increase durability and protect the shoes during foot jams
  • 4mm OrthoLite® approach insoles enhance comfort
  • PU-Tech lite heel counters and toe caps add protection in the front and rear of the shoe
  • Highly stable EVA in the forefoot offers torsional rigidity on off-camber terrain
  • Dual-compound soles feature Vibram® Megagrip at the climbing zones in the toes, a more durable, hard-wearing Idrogrip rubber in the heels and Impact Brake System lugs

Sizing Notes

For rock climbing shoes: Choose soft shoes two to three sizes smaller than your street shoe size. We recommend you fit your trad shoes one to two sizes under your street shoe size. Remember to factor in stretch. Unlined slip-lasted shoes tend to stretch about one full size. Lined shoes stretch about a half size. Remember: a well-fit comfortable shoe will work better than an ill-fitting tighter shoe.

For boots: Add one half size to your street shoe size. You should be able to slip one finger behind your heel when you are standing up with the boot unlaced and your toes touching the front. If the boot is too short, your toes will get smashed walking downhill. Too long and your heel will slide up and down and give you blisters.
