    I like this shoe because:



  • It has a very stiff sole, which both gives me the stability to rest in a comfortable way on the wall and allows me to walk around quite a bit without feeling the pebbles too much.

  • The body is built in a very comfortable way and I can easily wear the shoe for a whole day without too much pain.

  • It's not a tech-shoe, but on the other hand it's works great on longer runs. I never experienced any problems of feeling the foot go numb, as you sometimes do in more technical shoes.

  • Suede is much more comfortable than some synthetic alternatives I've tried earlier.

  • Boreal's soles have very grip and the ledges are put in the perfect position on the end of the sole.



    Minor annoyances



  • The lacing can be a bit tough sometimes. Fast lacing system on the new version?

  • The sole is as on every other Boreal wearing down a little bit too quickly.

    A really good and very comfortable shoe. The stiff sole makes it easy to climb and the grip of the sole is awesome. I use this shoe for indoor climbing and easier routes in the rocks.
