I’ve just worn out a pair of GTX Stream boot, the upper has begun to perish after 1000km. I’m wondering if there is a defect policy with La Sportiva and would these TX4 be a more robust boot for my hiking, sometimes carrying 12kg?
La Sportiva have a great warranty policy, https://www.sportiva.com/returns-and-warranty Please send some photo's through of where the shoes have worn out to us with a proof of purchase and we can pass it along to La Sportiva to assess if this is a manufacturing fault or general wear.
The Stream GTX is a Fast and Light hiking boot with a lightweight synthetic upper and because of the light weight materials use it may be more senstive to rough conditions whereas the TX4 Mid is designed as a protective approach boot and features a more durable suede leather upper so under the same circumstances you would expect it to be more durable.
