/ Boreal Rock shoes
I usually find myself going for La Sportiva or 5.10 so just thinking I should broaden my horizons a bit, any help appreciated.
I like Boreal shoes. As usual, it's all about the fit so recommending a model is pointless. I have always found Boreal shoes to be well made and hard-wearing - I don't think I've ever gone through the uppers on a Boreal shoe, but I have in other brands, and the soles have always lasted well. I can't comment on their latest rubber though, as I am still using some old Spiders that have the old rubber on (not quite as grippy as others, but will very rarely make the difference between doing a route or not).
Is that because people give up on them and buy another? <hypothetical>
Thanks all....will try some and see how they fit.
