    Epic dances up big walls.

    Boreal's Ballet Gold Climbing Shoe dances up cracks and edges on multi-pitches as long as El Cap's Nose. In a classic high top with a full-length insole and midsole, the Ballet Gold provides plenty of support for foot-jamming as high as the sky. Boreal built the Ballet Gold on a board last similar to a trekking shoe, and that combined with Boreal's sticky FS-Quattro rubber sole gives excellent edging on more technical, crimpy pitches. This shoe also features a split leather upper with anti-stretch stitching, and there's a full canvas lining for breathability and durability.

    • Split leather upper with anti-stretch stitching
    • Full canvas lining, double lined arch
    • Full-length insole and midsole
    • FS-Quattro rubber sole

    Ballet Gold

    Excellent trad shoe! Great foot support, edges extremely well. Fit is true to size. Canvas lining makes for a no-stretch fit. The rubber seems a bit hard for smearing, but it did everything I needed it to do without a problem.

    Board Last, Slabtastic!

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size

    Ever wondered what its like to have the stability of a gyro on your feet when climbing slab? Look no further.

    I was blown away at the stability these shoes have on small holds on less than vertical climbs. I was able to pad my way up some pretty stout slabs in Little Cottonwood when I demo'd these.

    What I will say is that they fit a bit different than other "Slip lasted" Shoes - Which is what most shoes are designed on. These are stiff, while being comfortable - you gain the stability of a "half size down" without the pain of downsizing.

    For all day multipitching around - these shoes are great!
