Tradition is important, and Tenaya knows this well. Based in a region of Spain celebrated for its custom of quality shoe making, the heritage behind Tenaya speaks to the passion bound to the brand. For almost twenty years, the family at Tenaya has built their product by holding true to the hunger that pushed them as young climbers.
Founder Jose Luis Garcia Gallego has spent his entire life involved in mountain climbing, having his hand in the development of next level climbing shoes since the early 1980's. A climber since eight years old, Jose Luis started establishing new climbing routes a mere few years later. This penchant for trail blazing has stuck with him ever since, a quality continually shone through the devotion at Tenaya.
After only two shorts years on the market, Tenaya shoes were being used to climb projects all over the world. These days, the latest technologies are a part of Tenaya's ever expanding vision, meaning improvements in regards to comfort and precision are a guarantee. The newest line of climbing shoes are equipped with SXRDynamics, making way for the best climbing shoes Tenaya has ever created.
Forever loyal to their founding values, Tenaya remains Spain-based in all areas of manufacturing and production. This dedication, along with being true to their roots, helps the company to carry on their mission of providing excellent products for climbers who demand nothing less.
