The Mundaka is a completely split-sole wonder that combines down turned precision and sensitivity with edging power. This next level technology from Tenaya gives you the sensitivity you need for overhangs while maintaining the stiff toe box for maximum edging power. The split sole construction allows for extra flexibility while reducing edge deformation. The advanced technology and construction minimizes pressure on the toes while maximizing transmission of power.

The Tenaya Mundaka offers an excellent blend of performance and comfort, and I think it excels as a steeper bouldering and competition shoe. It is a great option for intermediate to advanced level climbers who use and depend on precise edging and footwork through overhung sections. Like all shoes, the Mundaka doesn’t perform well in every area, and if longer duration vertical edging (e.g., a place like Smith Rock) or aggressive heel hooks are your priority, you may want to look at different options like the La Sportiva Otaki, Scarpa Booster S, or Evolv Shaman. But if you prioritize sensitivity, precise edging on overhung sections, toe hooking performance, and are looking for something with a bit of a wider fit than most other high-performance shoes, the Mundaka is definitely worth checking out.
These light, fleet, precise shoes mark one of the Spanish brand’s few forays into softer boots, and their innovation has paid off—the shoes crushed on steep boulders, sport, and the gym. “I dug the soft overall feel contrasted with the stiff, precision toebox,” said our tester. When he brought them on a tech-nasty offset 5.13 granite layback, the shoes locked right into the edging, scumming, and hooking.
