The Tarifa is a narrow lasted shoe which will ensure a super precise snug fit out of the box; added to this is its speed lacing system which allows for quick on/off, customisable fit. The shoe itself is cambered with a cambered toe box as well which is going to put your feet in a position of power on the rock. All the power is going to be driven to your toes for the ultimate grip on the tinniest of holds. The midsole benefits from a mid-stiffness sole which is going to support your foot strength on edges and ledges whilst also retaining enough sensitivity to feel your way up the route. Finish that all off with a Vibram XS Grip rubber compound to give you the ideal balance of friction and durability, infused in is Tenaya's MRRB Technology (Maximum Range of Response and Balance) for additional foot stability and dynamic response.
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.

Tried on a pair of these shoes and knew I had to get them. They're incredibly comfortable straight out of the box, it's almost like slipping into a pair of warm woolly socks. Laces make it possible to get a perfect fit from toe to heel, and I've struggled to find shoes that suit my oversized toes. The toe box itself is snug but not too tight, and its rigidity gives excellent control on holds of all shapes and sizes. To top all that off, the quality of the construction is top-notch. 10/10 would buy again!
