Boreal was born in 1975 and still is a family led company which is focused solely on footwear and climbing equipment manufacturing. Boreal produces all climbing shoes, mountaineering boots and the majority of their other products in-house at their factory in Villena, Spain. Boreal has always focused on gaining first-hand experience and input through close collaboration with the world’s best climbers and mountaineers. Their unique rubber compounds are exclusively used throughout the whole rock shoe range and are produced in their own factory. Although many processes are mechanized, the footwear remains handmade and this is reflected in any finished product. Besides first class climbing, trekking and mountaineering shoes, Boreal today produces a wide range of backpacks and accessories for climbing and mountain sports.
