More than two decades later, I had a similar experience with the Tenaya Tanta lace. The shoe is soft, which is good, but it lacks any support for edging. I had the following experience while bouldering on granite: the rubber repeatedly rolled up and over my toe when I tried to stand on slopey granite smear and my foot kept blowing off the hold. To make sure that I hadn’t sustained a sudden stroke that blighted my climbing proprioception and understanding of all technique and movement, I tried on a different pair of shoes. No problems there.
