    Comfort and performance from the gym to the sport crag.

    Crafted in southern Spain and made available for the first time in the US, the Tenaya Inti Climbing Shoe combines comfort and ease of use with the precise performance required by difficult climbs. The SXR Dynamics Technology in the sole helps balance power and precision with comfort, the hook-and-loop straps make it easy to pop the shoe on and off between burns, and the Vibram XS Grip rubber sticks to the poorest footholds.

    • Microfiber upper with a TXT-treated cotton lining provides a snug fit with minimal stretch
    • Dual hook-and-loop straps provide a secure closure and easy on and off
    • 2D PLT 10 midsole provides an ideal blend of stiffness and sensitivity for performance on a wide range of angles and features
    • Asymmetric last and a moderate down turn provide maximum power to the big toe while maintaining good rock feel
    • Vibram XS Grip rubber allows you to smear, edge, and heel-hook with confidence
    • SXR Dynamics Technology in the sole provides precision and efficiency with greater comfort
    • Item #TNY0001

    I'm totally into my Inti

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: 8.0/40-3/4
    • Height: 5'7"
    • Weight: 145lbs

    I admit: I'm a sucker for the new. Every time a new brand or new model comes out that speaks of a low volume, narrow fit that’s perfect for aggressive climbing, I want to check it out (looking at you Butora, So Ill, and Black Diamond). But after trying on different shoes, I should know by now that I should ignore the hype, and go with the shoe that consistently fits. I'm not the next Megos or Midtbø – I just want to climb in the morning without foot pain then go to work.

    I'm on my second pair of Inti (and my third pair of Masai – all thanks to the generosity of my best friend and favorite climbing partner). I love the Masai because the fit is perfect for me, but the laces can be challenging with pumped fingers and forearms, and the sole can be a bit stiff for overhangs and long toe reaches. I’ve also had the Iati, but the fit was a bit loose in the heel, and I didn't like the thick slingshot rubber. I thought the Iati would be my shoe, but after six months of use, I was left wanting something more Masai.

    After listening to my issues with the Iati and my wish for a downturned version of the Masai, the folks at Trango recommended I try the Inti. I was initially skeptical because the Inti looks like an older model in danger of discontinuation, and so I asked about other Tenaya shoes like the Ra and Tatanka. I’m glad I ultimately took their advice. If you’re looking for a slightly softer slipper version of the Masai, you have the Inti. The fit is almost exactly like the Masai. The only differences are due to laces, rather than the Inti velcro. However, the Inti bonus is more rubber on the toe for hooking, and less rubber on the sole for flexing your feet. On the whole, this is a great all-around gym and bouldering shoe. Slightly aggressive, sufficiently sticky, and tailor-made for narrow feet, with a softer sole that helps on shorter, bouldery routes. For me, these fit like a sock with no break-in period.

    I also prefer these over the Iati because of the fit. If your foot is slightly wider, then I do recommend the Iati. Like any synthetic shoe, though, these can get kind of funky smelling (less of a problem with the Masai for some reason). Either way, I keep both pairs in my climbing bag. If I need a stiffer shoe for longer routes or cracks, I pick the Masai. But for most routes, these are my goto (which were Trango’s exact words as well!).

    I climb in the gym at least three days a week, concentrating more on bouldering recently, but have also used these shoes on rope routes.

    Sizing: I wear 41 in street shoes, 8.0 in Adidas Sambas and Nikes, 41 in Scarpa Crux approach shoes, 40.5 in TC Pros, 39.5 in Futuras, 8.0/40¾ in Masai, 7.5/40 in Iati.

    Favorite climbing shoes!!

    I'm on my third pair of the Tenaya Inti. Reasons I love these shoes:
    1) Aggressive enough for steep routes, comfortable enough to climb ten pitches in a day, sticky enough for super solid edging.
    2) Super reasonably priced and very high quality - I haven't had any issues with the shoes falling apart at all.
    3) These shoes are vegan, meaning they are 100% synthetic, which also means they don't stretch.
    4) There is no breaking in period with these guys - they are as comfortable on day 1 as they are on day 100.
    5) They are black and white so they match most outfits pretty easily ;)

    As far as sizing goes, I wear a women's 9.5 in street shoes and the Inti I wear in a men's 10. After developing extensor tendonitis in my left foot from too-tight climbing shoes, I no longer opt for a size that causes any pain or uncomfortability. My toes touch the ends of the size 10 with just the tiniest curl to my longest toes. My foot is not at all cramped or crammed into these shoes. Even without the extremely small sizing that too many climbers opt for, I feel really solid in the Inti.

    Amazing shoe!

    This shoe is the most comfortable, high performing shoe ive owned. It is somewhat downturned for steeper routes but is also extremely precise at edging. One size smaller than my street shoe is a snug fit. They are also synthetic so the size wont change or stretch much.

    how does the last on these compare to that of the TC Pro and Tarantula (which I'm told are built on the same last)? I have a narrow foot and wear a size 43 in the tarantulas for my aggressive (snug, but still comfy) sport climbing shoes.

    Best Answer

    I don't have TC Pros, but I do have Katana Laces, which are supposed to be on the same last as well. I find that the TC Pro/Katana Lace shape favors a wide forefoot and narrow heel. The Intis are relatively narrow throughout. I'd say that they feel narrower than my Katanas, but comparable to Solutions in width. (I am a wide-footed girl, which seems to make my feet equivalent to those of a narrow-footed man.)



    I have had mine through four resoles, they have held up tremendously and are insanely comfortable. They are strong in both edging and smearing.



    Their biggest weakness is in the heel cup. The Sportiva heel cup and even the Oasi heel cup suctions onto my foot well, but the Inti (and for that matter, Masai) heel cup will slide off my foot on heavily weighted hooks.
