Incredible shoe especially for the money - great value
Having recently returned to climbing I needed some new shoes. Went to my local Snow and Rock and tried several pairs including some 5.10s at almost twice the price of these. Bought these as they felt far more comfortable in the shop. Have used them several times since and they are incredibly grippy, incredibly stiff soles and incredibly comfy. They look great also. The fact they are lace up means you can get them tight in the right places rather than some of the shoes with Velcro fasteners. Great show at a great price. Will be using these for a long time to come. Thnx

With a name like Joker you maybe under the impression that these aren't a serious rock shoe - you'd be wrong. I'd class myself as an intermediate occasional climber and as such these shoes are ideally suited to my needs. I found them durable, comfortable and well versed for a variety of conditions. They are the kind of shoe you can wear all day without feeling like your toes are about to drop off. If you're new to climbing I'd recommend the Joker as a great shoe to get you started.

Nice shoe once broken in
Was recommended this shoe by Snow + Rock when saying I was trying to get back into climbing. After a couple of bouldering sessions to break in these shoes they are comfortable & give me just the right amount of hold

Great price great quality
Excellent shoe for beginner or advanced, hard, rubbery outer lining, grips well, flexible and durable. Nice design, well made and breathable. Would buy Boreal again.

Solid shoe for bouldering
Bought for indoor bouldering and this shoe has performed really well. Good sole rigidity, good grip on toe and heel. Fits well for my feet (quite wide).

Great shoe, very sticky, 5 star*****
I purchased the Boreal Joker shoe as a replacement to my Scarpa Vantage. I have done a few climbs in the Boreal's now and I am very pleased with the results and the improved grip, feel and feedback I get.
I would highly reccommend these as a starter shoe or a replacement for someone moving up from starter shoes.
In a nutshell they provide confidence for the beginner and the feel and feedback required of a more advanced climber.
Keep up the good work Boreal!!!!
