Boreal Mutant Climbing Shoe
Most climbing shoes evolve; this shoe mutates. Designed for hard sport climbing and bouldering, the Boreal Mutant is designed for routes where finding friction, smearing, edging, heel-hooks and toe-hooks are all key to a successful ascent. The Lateral Torsion System is a tensioning band designed to support the foot without decreasing suppleness. The Friction Skin uses granules of the ultra-sticky Zenith Pro rubber combined with glue for maximum friction during toe-hooks, and the 3D moulded Zenith heel cup eliminates all dead space. The aggressive downturn, high asymmetry, and soft midsole provide power, precision, and technicality on the steepest of routes and the most overhanging problems, with the Zenith Pro rubber performing equally as well on polished rock as it does on edges. An unlined leather upper will stretch (up to a full size) and fully mould to the foot's unique shape, whilst the anti-deformation midsole will ensure that the Mutant will maintain its powerful shape even after stretching and heavy use.
The Boreal Mutant is ideal for high-level sport climbers and boulders climbing steep rock, with a particular focus on heel and toe-hooks.

Zenith Pro® rubber is Boreal's pro level compound featured on their highest performance rock climbing shoes. This compound excels on low friction routes and overhangs, but it also maintains an ability to hold micro edges. A true high-performance rubber available from the brand who invented "sticky" rubber as we know it today.
Lateral Torsion System
The Lateral Torsion System is the latest development in rand tensioning technology. A tensioning band is used in conjunction with varying rubber thickness to produce a highly supportive yet supple hold on the foot.
Friction Skin is the name given to Boreal's special coating designed to enhance friction on the top of the shoe. Granules of ultra sticky Zenith rubber are combined with a durable glue to create a thin and supple rubber layer over the toes.
