To get the best performance, please pay attention to the following usage tips.
Never use your Tenaya to walk or if you are not climbing.
Don't wear it like a flip flop.
Never wash it in the washing machine or use any type of soap or chemical to clean it.
Do not leave them in the sun or expose them to any heat source such as heaters, fireplaces, dryers, etc., it is very important not to leave inside the car if it is exposed to the sun, inside it can reach high temperatures that could damage the shoe causing the detachment of some of the parts of it and irreparable damage, due to the fact that there may be a reactivation of the glues that intervene in the gluing processes, this can happen even when the shoe is in the boot.
To maintain all the adhesion properties and optimal performance of the shoe, you must keep the sole clean of dust, dirt, magnesium, etc., but never clean the sole with any chemical product.
To avoid deformations, always keep in the upper part of the backpack avoiding pressure on the shoe.
Try to carry it in your backpack in a separate bag that protects it from being in contact with other products that may damage it.
If you have more than one pair of climbing shoes, alternate their use as much as possible, thus extending the life of the shoe.
If you are forced to wheeze, keep in mind that the shoe will lose part of its initial performance.
Do not over-tighten the lacing, the fit of the shoe and the combination and arrangement of the materials makes it unnecessary to climb with force and precision.
To climb with the greatest strength, precision and without pain in the foot, it is important that you pay the utmost attention to the choice of your size. If it hurts you, you have not chosen the correct size. You can follow the recommendations in the "Choose your size well" section that you will find next to each model.
Try not to change shoes with other climbers.

These fats also usually contain chemical additives that damage the skin.
Do not dry them in the sun or expose them to any source of heat such as heaters, fireplaces, dryers, etc. Do not leave it inside the car if it is exposed to the sun, inside it can reach high temperatures that could damage parts of the boot causing the detachment of some of the parts of the same and irreparable damage, because a reactivation of the tails can occur. that intervene in the gluing processes or the materials used in the toe and heel reinforcements.
To dry the boot, it is preferable to remove its inner insole, it does not absorb moisture, but moisture particles may remain adhering to the base of it.
If the boot is fitted with a membrane, never walk with objects inside such as stones or small branches. No matter how small these may be, they can damage the membrane, affecting the waterproofing of the boot.
Do not leave on heavy objects that can cause deformations, especially in the toe and heel protections of the boot as they can be irreparable.
