Tried & Tested
The Tenaya climbing shoes our team has tested recently.
Tenaya SHOE TECH
Tenaya climbing shoes are known for their advanced technology that enhances climbers’ performance and comfort on the rock. One of the standout features of Tenaya climbing shoes is the Draxtor lacing system, which allows for precise adjustment of the shoe’s fit. Another notable technology found in Tenaya climbing shoes is SXR Dynamics. This innovation enhances the shoe’s power transmission, providing a more efficient transfer of energy from the foot to the rock.
Tenaya Sizing Top Tips
As with most climbing shoe manufacturers, Tenaya bases their shoe size on European sizing. As there are more increments with European sizes, it makes it easier to find the right fit for you.
Tenayas are quite awkward to size. From my experience, sizing can vary greatly from model to model. For some shoes, like the Mastia, I need to drop two whole UK shoe sizes. Other shoes, like the Masai, only need to be downsized by 1 shoe size
