The Arai is the bridge between a comfortable entry-level shoe and an aggressive performance shoe, incorporating key features of Tenaya's Aerial Plus line in a versatile, all-around package. The Arai is the perfect all-day training shoe for new and experienced climbers alike. A slightly downturned toe offers performance, while a moderate heel cup offers a comfortable fit. Velcro straps make for quick transitions between climbs.
