Ace Climbing Shoe

Cloud Tower consists of technical face climbing and long splitters ranging from fingers to baggy fists, and Boreal's Ace Climbing Shoe handles each pitch gracefully. This shoe combines a moderate downturn into symmetric shape, resulting in a shoe that performs on the crux and remains comfortable on the long routes. The full insole and midsole provide plenty of support, and Boreal's abrasion-resistant FS-Quattro rubber stays strong for seasons. The split leather upper features anti-stretch stitching, and there's a full canvas lining for added breathability and durability.

My Go To Shoe

I've put it through the wringer
True to size
Size Bought
5` 9"

I wear these and Boreal Ballet Gold's in my street shoe size (10) for all day trad. For me, no shoe is more comfortable. For the colder months, I have a pair of 10.5's that I can comfortably wear socks with. I have also tried a half size down at 9.5 and they just took a bit to break in but were comfortably tight for better edging. I would have given them five stars if it wasn't for their crappy rubber. I resole every pair I buy.

Thanks for your review. Boreals aren't that widely used, so all the info you have is much welcome!

Trad Daddy

I've put it through the wringer
Runs large

This is my 4th pair of Ace's are would fully recommend them for trad. The sole is super stiff and supportive for long multi pitch climbs. They also edge really well and the leather construction is highly durable for cracks and chimenys. The canvas lining keeps the odor down and wicks well. These do stretch quite a bit though so would suggest sizing down a half to full size.


Are these shoes board lasted?

Hi Joshua, The previous years models were board lasted, but Boreal switched it up for 2019 and now they are slip lasted. I'll work on getting our Tech Specs updated. Thank you!


Other than the rubber, these shoes are what I am looking for. I want to size them comfortably and from what I understand, to get that comfort, I should go with my street show size which is a 10. What size would be recommended for long trad routes?

Arin, the 10 should be comfortable on long trad routes, after you have broken them in. I will work with you directly, to make sure you find the right shoe. So, feel free to reach out to me directly.
