More sizes means a better fit! La Sportiva shoes are built on European half sizes which are smaller increments than US half sizes. This gives us five extra sizes per size run, which gives you a better fit!

Worthy and Better replacement to the Exum
Finally a worthy replacement for the sorely missed Exum Ridges of yesteryear. Too many companies make "approach" shoes with a narrow toe box area. Sure, they may climb a TAD better that way but how many climbers really do that? Most of us want a killer shoe for the hike up and the scramble down. I want comfort, not climbing ability per se. The old Exums were the first to do this and many lamented their demise. The TX3 is the new heir to the throne. LOVE these shoes. Comfort right out of the box. Inspiring grip and a COMFORTABLE toe box area. Thank you! I (and if one searches reviews, many others) love this shoe as it gets the fit and purpose so right. A must buy.

Best hiking shoe I've ever worn
Put a ton of miles on these out West. No break in time, excellent straight out of the box. Excellent for bike riding as well if you don't use or like toe clips since the soles grab the pedals and stay there. Breathable mesh for walking through the occasional stream. Perfect fit for my wide width. Excellent purchase.

Most comfortable approach shoe
This is the most comfortable shoe I've laced up. I bought them just before my ascent to Grays Peak in Colorado. No breaking in needed. No blisters no problem. All glory!

Unstoppable!
Fresh out of the box for three days through the Enchantments, Leavenworth Wa. These stuck like glue to the multiple granite faces and domes. Also handled some harrowing descents through loose rock and walked like a champ on the basic rocky rooted trails.

My favorite approach, canyoneering, backpacking show
I love this shoe--and so does everyone who I've introduced to it. Full review: https://mikeshikes.wordpress.com/2016/04/24/review-la-sportiva-tx3/

Note, the wider last is PERFECT for me. I normally find La Sportiva too narrow for my feet. Some La Sportiva fans might fight it too wide.

I wish that put a couple different versions of soles on the shoe so I could wear them in all conditions. (Great on rock. Not so great on snow or deep mud.)

Great breathability, and traction, poor design
Great traction, and breathability. However, the reinforced lacing system's perma-laces touch your feet at the last loop closest to the medial ankle. It is extremely irritating and somewhat painful. The tongue should have been bigger to cover this to prevent from digging into foot. I wish I could return to retailer for money back. Serious design flaw.
