BOREAL was founded in 1975 by Jesús García López in the city of Villena, Spain. The area around Villena has a rich history of footwear manufacturing and Jesus was an expert in shoe manufacturing processes.

The first products that were developed were a mix of styles of outdoor boots, including both new light trekking boots or high quality leather hiking boots .

In the 1980s the demand for BOREAL climbing shoes was enormous, quickly establishing BOREAL as the first choice in climbing shoes worldwide, introducing new materials and manufacturing techniques leading to innovative models now famous, such as Ace, Ninja, Vector and Laser. Many climbers of this period said that they would go up a full grade just by using BOREAL.

This period saw great advances in climbing and in synchrony with the achievements of the athletes, BOREAL continued to develop increasingly advanced models, helping to push the limits of what is possible. Legendary climbers of this period like John Bachar, Ron Fawcett, Lynn Hill, Wolfgang Güllich, Jerry Moffat, Ben Luna and Yuji Hirayama naturally opted to use BOREAL.

The passion for technological innovation is deeply rooted in BOREAL and is a defining characteristic of the company, in addition to having the collaboration of the best climbers and mountaineers in the world, and having the right commercial vision, manufacturing facilities and the passion to develop the revolutionary products that have so widely influenced the Outdoor footwear market.

Unusually for a footwear manufacturer, BOREAL produces the complete collection continuously throughout the year.

BOREAL Sherpa Hiking Boots Brown
Amazing Quality
Tried these boots out in Yosemite Valley and boy are they a whole 'nother level of boot. The perfect boot for hiking. However, they are quite stiff at first so you will need to break them in.

BOREAL Bamba Hiking Shoes Dark Green Light Grey Black
Favorite shoes I've ever owned
I had never in my life worn shoes that were especially comfortable ON TOP of my foot, but somehow these shoes do the trick. I just flat out love them and got two pair because I like them so much. They're great.
