Tenaya Mundaka Climbing Shoe
The Tenaya Mundaka draws heavily from the Oasi - the shoe worn by Alex Megos on the world's first 9a onsight - taking away none of its style and performance but making some changes. The middle part of the sole is now very soft, making the Mundaka more precise than the Oasi and with better sensitivity for overhanging problems. Don't worry though, as it's not all about the steep stuff; they've kept the toe-box nice and hard so as to not sacrifice edging power performance on the vertical. To make this shoe more durable, Tenaya have placed the Mundaka's rand over the heel rubber to prevent it from peeling off. A useful addition if you're going to be doing a lot of heel-hooking manoeuvres. As for features, the Mundaka has the easy-to-use Draxtor® lacing system with two adjustable length webbings attached to a velcro strap for fast on-and-offs and a precise fit, and the SXRDynamics® rand that prevents toe bulging and keeps the climber's weight loaded precisely on a foot hold. With a synthetic upper, the Mundaka will not stretch at all and maintain its performance shape over its entire use.
An offspring of the high-performance Oasi, the Mundaka is very much the brother of the shoe that sent Alex Megos up his record breaking climb, but a slightly different design built to perform on and endure through more technical routes and problems.
We recommend sizing a half size to a full size down from your normal climbing shoe size.

Vibram XS Grip™
Original rubber compound built for pure friction, recommended for use where maximum grip is the primary need - bouldering and sport climbing, indoor climbing, or extremely smooth, polished routes.
DRAXTOR® LACING SYSTEM
A highly precise, fast, and efficient lacing system. The webbing can be adjusted to the length to fit your foot's unique morphology, so every time you velcro up you'll have the same custom fit.
Tenaya's movement-adjustment system that focuses power towards the big toe. This system is unlike any other found on a climbing shoe. It actively adjusts power based on the foot's position for smart precision on the smallest of features which prevents the rand from bulging out, which can knock you off balance. This means you have more control, more balance, and more power, on every foothold.
