versatile performance without painFor the first time in years, I can take only one pair of shoes to the crag. They perform as well as any shoe I've worn (used to be a Miura-lover), and they are hands down the most comfortable shoe I've ever worn. Somehow they pull that off without any slop. The XS is the gold standard in rubber, and i LOVE it. It lasts really well, and is so sticky you can toe-in on SLOPERS. After using this shoe for a year on everything from Hueco Tanks boulders to big alpine routes, I can say its the most confidence inspiring and well-built shoe I've worn in my 12 years of climbing.

High Performance & ComfortableI have been climbing in the Tenaya Ras since September 2012. I used them to work a Rifle Colorado route, "Eurotrash." The route has a thin technical crux down low and a steep crux up high with a heel hook. The Tenayas performed great on the small polished smears and tiny divot on the first crux and heel hooked nicely on the steeper 2nd. I like that the heel stays snug without chafing without too much room in the heel box. They are a great all terrain, high performance, comfortable shoe.

Very comfortable High Performance ShoeI'm 50 and have only been climbing for 5-6 months; mainly in a gym. However, I do climb a lot and these RAs are my second pair of shoes. All I do is boulder and can climb up to a V2/3 inside.,,,,Pros: Comfortable, well designed, just aggressive enough for me, no stink, quality, unique, little stretch, comfortable tongue.,,,,Cons: For me the low volume heel is somewhat of an issue. At the right angle, my heel can slip, so that puts a bit of hesitation in my mind sometimes, but that is the only con for me. Your milage my vary.,,,,Sizing: I wear an 8.5 street shoe, I could have worn these in a 7 except that I broke my left big tow when I was younger and have trouble bending it, I chose a 7.5 which is a hair big on my right, and still somewhat uncomfortable on my left, but they are stretching just a bit and getting more comfortable on the left foot.,,,,Similar to a Supermocc maybe, but the 5.10 heel fit me a bit better. However, I like them very much.

How does the Tenaya Ra shoe size compare to street shoe sizes? I remember trying them on in store a while back and they fit tight enough in my exact street shoe size (7.5), but now I'm wondering if I might regret not going a bit tighter.
Asked by: Tiff
Thanks for reaching out to us! "My normal climbing shoe size is a 7½, but I got into a 6½ of the Tenaya Ra and found them surprisingly comfortable. They took about a month or so to become comfortable enough to wear for periods of time." Keep in mind that a size from one brand/model will fit differently than the same size in another brand/model, and what works for one, might not work for another. It's also a good idea to try climbing shoes on in the afternoon because your feet can swell up to a full size during the day. The Velcro slipper, otherwise known as the Tenaya Ra, balances stiffness and sensitivity to give you premium performance with a nearly non-existent break-in period. Synthetic uppers with a cotton lining ensures that your shoes won't stretch out or become uncomfortable through the life of the shoe. The asymmetrical shape provides power and precision right where you need it. Hope this helped you out.
