The ultra sticky Vibram sole with climbing zone make this model the ideal choice for technical approach routes and via ferrate. The new and improved sole design provides even greater grip while climbing and the Impact Brake System offers enhanced braking power for descent routes. The soft 2mm EVA insert guarantees optimum anti shock properties. The full rubber rand offers maximum protection against abrasion while climbing. The patented Asymmetric lacing system derives from the Mythos climbing shoe project. Available in 2 colours: Ash/Orange and Grey/Yellow.
Robust, supportive, and with a decent all-terrain tread, the mid-cut version of Boreal's technical approach shoe is built to last, says Rob Greenwood, and should be a good investment for anyone seeking a more substantial option for mountain use in particular.
