In a market saturated with soft and specialised performance shoes, the TN Pro is something different, says Nick Brown - a downturned and stiff performance shoe that can hold its own both indoors and out.
I’ve bought a pair of these. Not used them yet but they felt just like pulling on a pair of older model HiAngles, exactly what I was after
How do they compare to the Regulus?
I definitely prefer these to the Regulus. Even though they both have 4.2mm rubber, I found that the TN Pro to feel stiffer and it has stayed stiffer for longer.
I also thought that the Regulus' bagged out quite a bit and I've not found this with the TN Pros. The heel has been slightly less slippy than the Regulus too.
Overall they are a very similar shoe, so if you liked the Regulus then you'll like these.
Thanks for the reply. Sounds like they might work for me on certain limestone problems, maybe even on grit, when I need a bit of edging power on steep stuff.
How did you size these compared to Regulus? Down a size or half size from street shoe roughly? Cheers
Thanks for the review. Sounds like the TN might be a good shoe for peak/Yorkshire limestone. How does the stiffness compare to popular shoes from other makers such as the various Scarpa Instincts?
What is going on with Nick’s right foot in the last pic?!?

Out of interest how do they size up compared to the old hiangle?
I went for the same size.
You can't see it but we photoshopped out the big wooden block that Nick stood on so he could do the move ;)
