    Time to retire your first shoes.

    You first pair of climbing shoes barely have any rubber, which is fine because you've outgrown them; now you need a new, slightly more aggressive pair of sending boots like the Tenaya Men's Tanta Climbing Shoe. Tenaya designed this shoe with a slight downturn for the moderate aggression that intermediate climbers want for harder projects. The combination of synthetic leather and breathable, odor-resistant cotton lining prevents the upper from stretching like your old leather pair of shoes. Not too soft or too stiff, the Tanta's midsole and rubber sole feel just right for smearing, edging, and heel hooking your way to the top.
    • Comfortable introduction to high performance climbing shoes
    • Slight downturn and moderate aggression for intermediate climbers
    • Synthetic leather upper reduces stretching
    • TXT-treated cotton lining for breathability and anti-odor
    • Moderately stiff midsole with 4mm rubber sole for traction
    • Item #TNY0008

    Good all-around shoe

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: Runs large
    • Size Bought: 9 men's
    • Height: 5'8"
    • Weight: 125lbs

    I mostly climb in the Tenaya Inti, which are more aggressive than the new Tanta, but they are also more expensive and I wear through them too quickly in the gym. I picked up a pair of the Tanta specifically for climbing on those sandpaper gym walls. They are a really nice, comfortable slipper that are super easy to take on and off multiple times in a session. They have a decent amount of flex and just a touch of down-turn to the toe. The Tanta is a vegan shoe (woohoo!) and since they are synthetic, you can expect no stretch. The shoes fit fine right out of the box, which is the case with all Tenaya shoes for me. No breaking in period! Coming from a more aggressive Tenaya (the Inti), I was completely off guessing my size. I wear a 9.5 women's street shoe and a men's 10 in the Inti, but the men's 9 in the Tanta is still very much on the big side :(

    I developed extensor tendonitis from wearing too-tight climbing shoes, so I have sized all my shoes up to lessen my pain. These are, however, still too big a full size down from my favorite Inti. Oh well...

    If you are looking for a casual, lazy gym shoe that you can tear up and not feel guilty about, these are great! The color is a little bright for my liking, but I'm weirdly plain about my clothing :)

    Unanswered Question

    Does this shoe suit people with low-volume feet? Tenaya heel cups feel a bit baggy on some of their other models (e.g. Masai and Ra).
