FS: BOREAL FALCON SIZE UK8 USA9 BRAND NEW w/TAGS

Testers pegged the Falcon as “close to climbing barefoot.” The laces let you fine-tune fit, but this downturned, asymmetrical shoe is still softer than many slippers.

The Falcon is super-flexible (read: grabs like a machine) because it has no midsole, and the sole itself (Boreal’s FS-QUATTRO) varies from 4mm under the ball of the foot to 4.6mm under the pointed toe — plus, it’s unlined (the leather upper stretched up to a full size and tended to fit high-volume feet). Testers mentioned that the Falcon wasn’t suited for all-around use — it’s a steep-terrain specialiste.

Ideal Uses: Steep, hard sport climbing and bouldering; advanced climbers

Bottom Line: Soft and sensitive; feels like you’re climbing barefoot; specialized for the steeps
