The new Resole Platform technology with the new TX4 R model from La Sportiva
In 2022, La Sportiva took the next step in its commitment to sustainability by introducing Resole Platform, the world's first technology that allows for a complete and safe resealing of approach footwear. Since the founding of La Sportiva in 1928, resole has always been part of the culture of the Trentino company. In fact, all products of the Mountaineering and Climbing lines are designed and manufactured with the aim of prolonging their lifespan thanks to the possibility of replacing the outsole when it is worn.
Resole Platform is La Sportiva's new patented technology that allows for a quick and easy resole without compromising the performance of the shoe.

This innovation promotes a path of education and awareness for the consumer, who can continue to use the shoe that has fit well and avoid replacing a used, but still serviceable product, thus reducing their environmental footprint.
