Also just discovered the tatanka as an option but I'm worried about them being too aggressive, anyone know just how intense they are? Gnomestyle

If you email Trango, one of the employees will get back to you with more details about the Tenaya shoes. He was very helpful. Dana Bartlett

The wife and I road-trippin on the Connie.
They have a very different cut in the toebox. The masai is shaped narrow and low volume, with a very definite point to the toe. If you've ever climbed in an Evolv Pontas, they're very close to that shape. The heal has less volume (which i was looking for, everything has too much dead space for me) but the slingshot is much lower on the heel than any of my other shoes, by almost 1/2", and they rubbed a pressure point i have on my heel the wrong way and i'm now planning to return them.

The stonelands have a much wider toe area, with a kind of squared off shape to them, the polar opposite of the pointy masai shape. I found the heel and overall fit of the stonelands to be great, but the toe-shape did not focus the power for edging as much as i was used to. I only really tried climbing the lace version which has a very soft sole. I'm personally planning on trying these again in the velcro with stiffer sole next time i'm in the gym.

Unless you are getting paid by a company to wear their brand, select the shoe that fits your foot best. You will have better succuss in you climbing that way.

I just got a pair of tatankas 2 months ago. Havent had a chance to use them outside yet.. still winter here and been snowing a lot. But so far in the gym theyve excelled at what I want them to do.

They arent going to edge (they do edge quite well just not as great as say my Scarpa Vs ) as well as say the masai because of the less stiff midsole, but they absolutely crush it for toeing in on steep overhanging stuff.

This. That being said I demo'd some evolv shamans (fit my feet beautifully) and did not like the rubber at all. Felt a bit slicker than Stealth (c4, mystic and onyx)
