    Details

    Crouching climbs, hidden toe-hooks.

    Sneak your way to the top of competitions by training and seeking sit-starts on difficult boulder problems in the Boreal Men's Ninja Climbing Shoe. Soft and sensitive, the Ninja thrives on delicate smears, technical slabs, and microscopic edges. Its forefoot rand tensions the Ninja in a moderate downturn for vertical to overhung routes, and the Texon midsole is soft enough for slabby sections. The FS-Quattro rubber sole stays sticky for seasons, and the split leather upper features a rubber toe for solid toe-hooks.

    • Split leather upper with rubber toe
    • Elastic slip-on
    • Tension rand around forefoot
    • Half Texon midsole
    • FS-Quattro rubber sole
    • Item #BRF000I

    Great bargain

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I got this shoe on sale for 60$. I wear size 10/10.5 in street shoes, and the size 10 is perfect for me. It's a snug fit, but still very comfortable. They felt comfortably broken in after a few days at the gym. I have a medium wide foot, low volume, Morton's toe, and narrow heel. There are only a few models of shoe I have found that fit really well, and this is one of them. They slip on and off easily but still feel secure on my feet.

    As others have said, the rubber is a bit stiff and slick compared to some other shoes. The pictures are a little deceiving - the last is very flat, not downturned at all, and after a few uses the toe is veritably pointing upward, almost like an elf shoe. They aren't going to perform like a sensitive/sticky bouldering shoe. But I bought them as a comfortable training/backup shoe rather than for peak performance, and they work really well for that purpose, definitely comparable to other beginner shoes that are closer to 100$.

    I'm hoping to try them on cracks soon, as that ought to be where they really excel.

    Good fit and price, iffy rubber

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    These shoes fit really well, but I got them knowing the description here was a bit optimistic. Turns it's way off: These are stiff and clunky, and the rubber is barely able to smear, much worse than other shoes I've tried.
    Still, good price and they have the best fitting heal for my foot shape. I want these to work out, and I'll update this if they start feeling better after some more use.

    If the Price is Right!

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: 11
    • Height: 5'11"
    • Weight: 205lbs

    Purchased these on sale for $67. You can't beat that price. I wear a street size 11 and these ran true to size. I have worn em both indoors and outdoors and have been happy with performance. They are fairly comfortable for an extended period of time.

    Good crack shoe

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

    I honestly feel more secure in cracks with these boreals than with my moccasyms because of the rubber on the toe. Using these at Vedauwoo, they performed very well. stiffer than the moccs too. They arent a perfect fit for me, they fit kind of tight for a slipper, but overall a great shoe, at a great price.

    Trad Slipper

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Height: 5'8"
    • Weight: 150lbs

    I bought these to replace a pair of shoes that ripped apart a few days before a climbing trip. I've done about 10 pitches in climbing in them so far and for the price I am really stoked.

    Pros-
    Comfortable
    Easy on Off
    Sole seems durable

    Cons-
    Thick sole reduces sensitivity
    Rubber is pretty hard, seemed slick on cold rock. Similar to La Sportiva Mythos.
    If you have a high arch the webbing across the top of the foot will become uncomfortable.

    I generally climb in La Sportiva Muiras but I can burn through two pairs of those per summer pretty easily. I purchased these to be a more durable workhorse of a trad shoe, and so far the pros outweigh the cons.

    As far as sizing I went with a half size down from my street shoe and it feels good in length.
