Last week awarded the 2016 Editors Choice Award for pain-free performance to the Tenaya Iati:

In 2014 we gave Editors Choice to the Tenaya Oasi for its flexible, easy-to-wear feel and outstanding performance on every angle and rock type. Building off that high performance without the pain ethos, designers at the Spanish shoe brand have outdone themselves by combining a more aggressive downturn in the mid- and forefoot, and a slightly stiffer feel in a sticky rubber shoe that is just as comfortable to wear. Testers wore these bouldering on the sandstone steeps of Roy, New Mexico, picking pockets in Ten Sleep, Wyoming, and smearing granite slabs in Boulder Canyon, Colorado. These are my quiver of one for anything requiring solid performance, one tester said. Theres no hold these dont grip fantastically. The infinitely adjustable Draxtor lacing system has two webbing straps that zigzag to cover the entire top of the foot, and you can keep the single pull tab or put two separate pull tabs on each strap to further customize fit. A blend of synthetic and natural leather means these stretch in the right places to feel good on the foot without stretching out, and a mesh sock ups comfort and breathability.

Designed to respond to the infinite shapes and demands of the rock. All in IATI has been thought to offer the best biomechanical response and put more resources to your foot.

Manufactured in the perfect combination of natural and synthetic leather to join the advantages of both materials, IATI stands out due to its amazing wide range of response, great performance, unparalleled comfort and the easy way to climb in all difficult situations as well as in the hard work of friction and adherence.

It has been created using the RB RangeX Technology developed by Tenaya, which favours a dynamic response and perfect balance, leading to superior performance in all kinds of testing situations. As with other Tenaya models, the IATI features SXRDynamics, a moving tightening system incorporating design elements in the sole and structure of the shoe and patented Draxtor, the fastest, most efficient and precise lacing system in the market today.
