Boreal Lynx Women’s is the consummate all-rounder. Featuring a subtly downturned women’s specific last shape and ultra sticky Zenith™ rubber, Lynx is just as happy padding up a friction slab as it is standing on micro edges. Such versatility makes this the perfect “do it all” shoe.
The last shape has evolved from a previous version of our popular Lynx model, and is specifically designed to fit the contours of a lower volume foot. The upper consists of a premium quality unlined split leather, cut lower at the ankle to prevent digging in, and a padded neoprene tongue. This works in conjunction with our full length lacing to provide a secure and comfortable fit. Our V2 Rand™, a 2-part rand that tensions a much larger area of the shoe, provides the ultimate heel fit.
The medium-soft midsole and marginally downturned last shape combine to produce excellent edging performance, while our super-sticky Zenith™ rubber provides friction on even the most delicate slab. Boreal Lynx Women’s is a precise, sensitive and comfortable shoe. It is ideal for vertical to moderately overhanging terrain, and is the perfect option for women wanting one shoe for everything.

Controversial though it might sound, and imaginary though the concept might be, I do believe the Lynx to be a good all-rounder. In this day and age where many climbing shoe manufacturers appear to be discontinuing all their stiff boots it is quite refreshing to have Boreal present something a little different. If you’re after a pair of boots that could take you up long mountain routes from Diff to E6 (arms permitting) or 9as at Malham (!!) then try a pair on – they might just be for you.
