Joker Velcro



no ratings


The Boreal Joker is an incredibly popular shoe, and for good reason. Combining the comfort and performance of the classic Joker Lace with the convenience of a strap closure, this shoe can do it all.

The Joker features a super-comfortable semi-asymmetric last and fast and simple strap closure. A high-quality split leather upper is combined with the PU Air Net™ padded lining for superior comfort. The low tension IRS™ (Integrated Rand System) heel is a one-piece heel unit which securely holds the heel without any pressure points.

An EVA anti-shock layer under the heel provides extra cushioning. The medium stiffness midsole combines with the sticky and durable FS Quattro™ rubber to provide the ideal blend of edging support and long-lasting friction. Joker is superbly versatile. Size normally for all-day comfort on long routes or extended training sessions; size down for higher performance.
