This shoe is all about quality & performance fit. Fits like a glove although might want to size down 1/2 size from regular shoe. Haven't yet been able to use them.
I am not a fan of radically down turned shoes, but I do need something that will perform well into the 11s in the gym. The Tenayas are great, because they seem to be built on a wider last than some other shoes, so my toes are not as cramped. The shoes are aggressive enough for me, as well as being comfortable. I have worn them inside and outdoors, and am a fan. The rubber is great as well, but it is soft so it is going to wear out like a soft rubber.
The fabric where your knuckles touch the top of the shoe makes for a pretty comfortable fit. I only sized down a half from my street shoe. They're not very down-turned but they perform well on the rock.
