Their best-selling model, evolved to provide greater comfort and performance in a single package.
Boreal's Joker Lace,built with a new super-comfortable and semi-asymmetric last and slimmer fitting heel, is a popular choice for both newcomers and veterans.
The low-tension integrated rand system relieves pressure on your foot, while the durable one-piece construction provides effective support that retains its shape over time.
Their high quality split leather and synthetic microfibre upper has a PU Air Net lining for exceptional comfort and a fresh new look, and they also use Boreal's Cushioned Heel System (CHS) which places an EVA shock absorbing insert under the heel to cushion and protect the foot.
They provide the ideal blend of edging support and long-lasting friction, all due to the medium stiffness midsole paired with the sticky and durable Zenith Quattro rubber outsole.

Take your actual body measurements as they are more accurate than measuring over your clothes or shoes.
Feet: Use a ruler or tape measure to measure your foot (from the heel to the tip of your longest toe) Be sure to measure both feet. Many people have feet of different sizes. Fit to the larger of the two.
Remember, feet can expand over a quarter size during a full day's walk so ensure you get the right fit.
These shoes are exceptionally comfortable. I am a size 8.5 in normal street shoe, and the 9.5 fits me perfectly, so they are made quite small.
I have used them on a couple of different indoor walls and they haven't missed a beat. The rubber sticks well and the edges grip into tiny holds without hesitation. I have also used them on a natural boulder and they worked very well. Comfort, practicality and enjoyment are higher up on my list than having crushed toes and sore feet. These are great and fit the bill without sacrificing any performance

Sturdy shoes but the grip is very poor compared to the crux climb x I had used previously.

Far too small
Oh dear not even close to being a 45. All of my boots are 45 but these are miles out, I'm going to have to order a 46 at least. Shame really because they look great but what a disappoint for me and my daughter who bought them for me for Christmas.

Very narrow across the last but toe-box is disproportionately baggy. Ver comfortable.

Good all day climbing shoe. Not as aggressive or as sticky as some, but for trad climbing and bouldering you won't be yearning to take them off.
