The Boreal Alpha VC is the essence of Boreal’s famous Joker series distilled into a basic ‘no frills’ package. Superb value for money and very comfortable, the Alpha rock climbing shoe is ideal for beginner climbers or as a comfortable and inexpensive second pair.
The Alpha features the same super-comfortable semi-asymmetric last as the top-selling Joker model. A low tension rand means there is less unwanted pressure on the foot and the shoe retains shape over time. The unlined microfibre upper feels comfortable next to the skin straight from the box.
A medium stiffness midsole paired with the sticky and durable Zenith Quattro rubber provides the ideal blend of edging support and long-lasting friction.
By streamlining the key features, Alpha provides a durable, comfortable and great value climbing shoe for any newcomers to the sport.
Cushioned Heel System
In order to improve comfort when stepping off the rock or walking between routes, Boreal developed the Cushioned Heel System (CHS). Using shock absorbing EVA under the heel, the foot is cushioned from rocky and hard ground.
Integrated Rand System
The IRS system goes a step further in the manufacturing of climbing shoes. This one piece climbing sole never deforms and has a superior fit.
We can achieve different thicknesses in the rubber and the one-piece construction increases durability.
