Our Reviews

Here are the Tenaya climbing shoes we have put through their paces.


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.

draxtor Lace System

Tenaya has created its own patented closure system for all its shoes. Not only does this provide tension but it makes it quick and easy to close the shoe.

SXR Dynamics

This innovative tech from Tenaya allows the shoe to adapt to different rock shapes for precision and comfort.


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. They are built for narrow feet so if you have wider feet, you might need to size up.
