Hiking boot review - La Sportiva TX5 GTX -

The boot fits a medium volume foot, with tight ankle hold and narrower toe box. Profeet suggests buying a half to a full size bigger than usual, as the boot comes up shorter in size.

  • Weight: 1050 g (EUR 42)

Profeet thoughts: This mid-cut boot is for backpackers or longer hikes over consecutive days. It provides stability and comfort fit and will be the perfect boot to bring on your hiking holiday!

The upper is waterproofed with a Gore-Tex membrane and with a fully gusset tongue, which will keep you dry when passing through wetter terrain. The reinforced rubber rand protects the soft leather upper from rocks and shingles.

Midsole stabiliser and EVA provides a comfortable and supportive feel and improves shock absorption.

The Vibram rubber outsole is firm but soft under the foot, which makes the boot suitable for more mountainous terrains but also flatter surfaces.

The rubber outsole consists of multidirectional lugs which will increase grip walking both uphill and downhill. A rounded heel improves shock absorption at ground contact.
