Boldrini Apache 5
The Apache 5+ climbing shoe is the crème de la crème of the Boldrini range. A model for true connoisseurs! Boldrini's Full Contact Sole (the equivalent of La Sportiva's No-Edge Technology) removes the traditional edges, improving the shoe's sensitivity and lengthening the life of the shoe by allowing you to use a bigger surface area of rubber on the rock rather than concentrating it into a single point under the big toe. The X-Tension midsole provides support to the metatarsal and effectively transmits pressure, and the microfibre upper is built to guarantee maximum comfort The Apache 5+ is the masterpiece of the world's most perfectionist shoe manufacturer. If you're looking for something of high quality that's comfortable and with maximum performance, then the Boldrini models will be right for you.

Formula Rubber Tractor
Boldrini’s signature sole material, the only rubber to use aluminium particles as a filler to increase tensile strength making the rubber generally tougher, more durable, and less likely to crack and split or stretch out of shape. Boldrini materials use high quality materials that result in a much longer lifespan with less repairs necessary over their lifetime.
F.C.S. (Full Contact Sole)
A one-piece rubber sole that eliminates the glued rubber “seam” from the toe-box, making for more precise edging and gripping as well as prolonging the life of the sole. Similar to La Sportiva’s No-Edge Technology, the absence of an edge allows the toe box to pivot and roll to stay stuck to micro holds whereas an edge, with its fewer points of contact, would simply “unhook”. The greater surface area also means that wear is spread more evenly, and the chance of the seam splitting and cracking is completely eliminated.
An X-shaped midsole placed at the forefoot that increases support of the metatarsals, for greater comfort and power when toe-hooking.
