Tenemos zapatos Boreal
Our Boreal climbing shoes have arrived. We now have a variety of models, in many sizes.
Boreal's Integrated Rand System (IRS) allows for more consistency in fit, than other shoe making processes. IRS also eliminates the problem of potential sole delamination, and makes the shoe easy to resole.
The FS-QUATTRO rubber Boreal uses on their shoes is not only incredibly sticky, but also has unmatched tear and abrasion resistance. It also has consistent high performance across a range of temperatures. This means harder climbing, for longer periods of time.
No matter where you are climbing / bouldering, we have the shoe for it.
Black Diamond's new magnet driven rocking carabiner is out, and we are fully stocked!
A perfect balance between ease of use, and safety.
