Diabola 2016



no ratings


Boreal Diabola is a comfortable, versatile women’s specific shoe for those operating in the middle grades. Enough precision for your latest project, enough comfort to wear all day. Our sticky and durable FS Quattro™ rubber ensures long lasting performance.

The Diabola features our Slim Fit Last, designed to fit the contours of a lower volume foot. The upper consists of a unique mixture of high quality unlined split leather around the toes for comfort, and Lorica around the instep and heel for minimal stretch. A tension band across the front prevents bagging over time.

A very slight downward camber and semi asymmetric shape provides precision and a level of comfort more familiar to those used to flatter shoes. A double strap closure is quick and easy to use, and works alongside the medium tension heel to give a snug, secure fit. Our highly sticky yet durable FS Quattro™ rubber and soft midsole provides great friction on slabs without sacrificing edging ability. Diabola is supremely versatile, and is the perfect choice for any climber making their first steps onto harder climbs.
