Who should buy the Boreal Ace

The Boreal Ace may still be a decent pair to invest in, thanks to its set of send-worthy attributes. It is a solid option if you:

  • Prefer an all-around rock climbing shoe that gives senders comfort and performance on long routes and trad climbs.
  • Prefer a climbing shoe that renders grip on most rock surfaces.
  • Prefer a climbing shoe that supplies the user with a supportive platform on vertical terrain.

Delivers friction on most rock surfaces

The Boreal Ace sports a trademarked 4.6 to 5.2mm FS Quattro outsole. Its abrasion-resistant rubber construction delivers friction on most rock surfaces. The brand also engineered this component to handle any changes in temperature.

Excellent underfoot support

The Ace sports a board lasted-construction. It also employs a full insole and a medium-stiff midsole. These components work in unison to give the wearer underfoot support, especially when climbing micro-edges.

I am passionate about maintaining an active lifestyle. I’ve been running and playing tennis since high school. In the last 5 years, I’ve picked up weight lifting and bouldering as part of my regular fitness routine. You can usually find me hitting the weights or rock walls at the gym, or trying out a new sport.
