Chris Sharma's favorite! When you need precision, sensitivity, and power transfer to climb your hardest, and they come with Tenaya's trademark comfort
There is a reason that ALL of our staff have a pair! We all agree that the Indalo encompasses the best of everything we want in a shoe - soft, sensitive and...perfect. We all really like the DRAXO for the adjustability and the split footbed for the flexibility.
These bad boys are the natural progression of Tenaya’s ever-popular Mastia model. In recent years, the Mastia has been the foot weapon of choice for elite climbers from Chris Sharma to Drew Ruana.
Indalo is slightly narrower than the Mastia in the toebox, while still maintaining that precise fit and performance that we’re all used to. It has a larger patch of rubber so you can hammer on toe hooks with ease.
An aggressively shaped shoe providing superb responsiveness, Indalo gives you maximum control over micro-edges and small holds while providing full sensitivity and precision in friction and smearing movements.
The perfect balance.
Designed to put more resources on your foot, you will be surprised by its wide range of response and above all its ability to provide solutions when using all types of difficult footholds.
With a behavior that is neither too soft nor too structured, Indalo has a perfect balance between all its features and offers the best performance both in bouldering and on vertical and overhanging routes.
Adjustment in motion
Its curved shapes and split sole, together with SXR Dynamics and RBRX technologies, provide optimal support or yield when the foot needs it, allowing greater freedom of movement and helping the foot movements follow each other in a natural way and with greater precision.
More control and sensitivity
Indalo’s 3.5mm rubber outer sole interacts with a four-micro-layer insole of different materials to let you feel every little nuance of the rock surface and transfer the power to exactly where it’s needed. In addition, the high-angle toe box proves extraordinarily effective for thin cracks and shallow pockets.
It all contributes to narrowing the distance between you and the rock so you can maintain maximum control and reliability on the most demanding holds.

FABRIC & TECH
Six different formulas of rubber
The upper part of the toe box is coated in super-sticky rubber, we have played with different volumes for better performance for difficult toe-hooking situations, while still offering high levels of abrasion resistance.
The heel section of the shoe incorporates our Friction Lock technology and features two different densities of rubber allowing us to play with the volumes and thicknesses that surround this part of the foot to achieve and increase heel-hooking performance.
If you prefer Velcro closure shoes, trust in Draxtor. Patented by Tenaya, Draxtor allows secure closure in just a single movement and is the only closure of its kind where you can control the levels of tightening at the front and back of the shoe.
To focus only on climbing.
As in other models of the Aerial Plus Line, also in the design and development of Indalo has been always considered comfort as an indispensable objective. Everything is carefully calculated and closely related so that you can focus only on climbing and have maximum comfort in a high-performance shoe.
As usual with Tenaya, the Indalo runs "big" - downsizing 2 sizes is common, pro's will downsize 2.5-3.
