Comfort, performance and convenience are hallmarks of these Spanish rock-dogs. Velcro straps mean easy in and out while an EVA padded heel means no more bruised heels when you're circuiting your favorite bouldering area. The bottom line is that the Boreal Joker Velcro is incredibly comfortable without sacrificing precision.
Whether you're grabbing holds at the gym or placing gear on a classic multipitch route, you'll find the Boreal Joker Strap rock shoes to be the ideal blend of comfort and performance. High-quality split leather upper features reinforced rip-and-stick closures that allow quick on and off and simple adjustment. Boreal FS-QUATTRO rubber is extremely sticky and highly abrasion resistant; rubber provides consistent performance across a range of temperatures. Polyurethane mesh linings and padded, mesh tongues move moisture away from your feet to ensure comfort while climbing. Lightly cambered last and asymmetric sole shape enable excellent edging while maintaining great sensitivity. EVA pad placed within the heel absorbs shock. Go with your street shoe size if you plan to wear the Joker all day, or size it a bit smaller for shorter sessions of bouldering or sport climbing.
