Unparallel TN Pro Climbing Shoe
Tomoa Narasaki is one of the best competition climbers in the world, he has already won 2 World Cups and one World Championship, he's even flashed 8B+ all at the age of 23, and luck would have it, that he helped design the TN Pro Climbing Shoe, it's actually his signature shoe. It has 4.2MM RH rubber it will give you all the friction you need to stand on micro edges. The Midsole is quite stiff giving you lots of power through your toes when standing on small edges whether that's on a slabs or overhangs. The upper is unlined synthetic which has a little but not much stretch so you don't have to worry about the shoe bagging out. So if you looking for a downturned stiff performance shoe that is great at edging, toe hooking and heel hooking then look no further.

Overall the shoe is just okay. The hiangles were my go to shoe and I hoped that these could replace them. Short answer is no they didn't. Gym performance is low imo, outdoors I'd say they perform better but not marginally. Rubber is definitely not as sticky as the c4 compound from the fiveten line. Decent cheap shoe but I wouldn't buy again.. hoping for better models from unparalleled in the future.
This shoe has a narrow entrance.
It's hard to wear.
This shoes will soften over time.
Highly sticky rubber always helps me.
Very similar to old version 5.10 Hiangle (made in US), but with better heel and more sticky rubber. Midsole is stiffer, after break-in fits like Hiangles and they are very comfortable for agressive, performance shoes. I wear a size 9,5 UK/44 EU street shoes, 9 UK/43 EU Hiangle and 9 UK/43 EU TN Pro - the size is the same. I loved old version 5.10 Hiangle, for me best all-round shoes and Unparallel TN Pro are even better.
Excels at everything really. While it feels stiffer than solution/skwama it stills perform really well on volumes indoor. 3-4 sessions to break in. The heel rand is quite stiff and it took me almost 3 months to put them on without a struggle. Only drawback for me is that they color my foot blue after use.
For sizing I wear these in eur 42. Same as I would regulus. Other references: Solution 40, skwama 39, python 39,5 and theory 39,5.
Fits and climbs like the Hiangle, but stiffer and more brightly colored.
