Tenaya Tarifa

9 reviews   |  

The Tenaya Tarifa is a versatile climbing shoe that offers comfort and performance, with a radical down turn that can perform in any situation.

Offering a real versatile performance in extreme situations, the Tenaya Tarifa has an ability to stick to seemingly ‘impossible’ holds, that borders on the supernatural! Utilising the RB RangeX system, a technology developed by Tenaya to make climbing feel both easier and more intuitive, the Tarifa offers superlative responsiveness in all kinds of demanding situations.

Not too rigid, not too soft, the Tarifa has been designed to provide optimal performance across a wide range of extreme climbing situations: from one-move boulder problems to long, sustained stamina-fests: from the steepest, most powerful overhangs to the thinnest of face climbs: from the tiniest edge to the vaguest smear.

You’ll be amazed how such a radically down-curved shoe can feel so comfortable, more so than many conventionally shaped rock shoes. The answer lies in how the Tarifa works in perfect harmony with the natural biomechanics of your feet, meaning the only thing you have to think about is the next move.

The best

Amazing, can wear these for a whole bouldering session and not get uncomfortable.

good limestone bouldering shoe

I have long narrow feet and went one size down according to the rock and run shoe chart and the fit is ideal tight at first but it has settled to the right size nicely. The shoe is an aggressive shoe but not excessively so. for me it is a good all-rounder boulder shoe that edges fantastically, has good support but still gives plenty of feedback from the rock. great on my local polished limestone crags.

Really nice pair of shoes, fit really well and have improved my climbing by making my feet more accurate. Love the lace system you can get the right tightness you need.

Comfort and high performance in one shoe

I’ve been using the Tarifas for about a month now, on both rock and plastic, routes and bouldering, and have been delighted with them in all settings. They offer a seemingly perfect balance of precise edging, effective smearing and almost out the box comfort. I’m a woman with fairly narrow feet, but can imagine they’d stretch to suit wider feet too. Highly recommended.
