The La Sportiva TX3 approach shoes are an amazing mix of a trail runner and a hiking boot. You get the best of both worlds when it comes to these great shoes. You do not have to worry about your shoes taking a beating when going on long hikes or runs in the woods, as these are going to last you a whole lot longer than your traditional trail running shoe. The stability is fantastic too, customers state that with these shoes you get great underfoot protection and superior stability, similar to what is offered from hiking boots. The beauty is that these shoes have a roomy toe box for comfort, but they also have amazing, solid toe protection, just in case you are one of the many runners who tend to hit every rock, branch, or root on the trail. Customers praise the outsole and the grippy rubber on the bottoms of the La Sportiva TX3's, stating that they do not have to worry about their feet slipping out from underneath them when they are walking or running on wet surfaces. The soft rubber is going to hold on to just about any surface so you can rest easy and focus on the world around you. The one downfall to having such an amazing outsole is that they are going to wear down faster than the rest of the shoe. You should keep in mind that they have such good traction due to the soft rubber on the bottom, so it is going to wear down rather quickly. Customers commented, however, that it is a good trade-off to have a shoe that is so grippy.
