Silex Lace Men



My vote: None ( 2 avg )


Boreal Silex Lace is a comfortable all-day shoe, and is the ideal companion for longer routes. Silex Lace has plenty of support to prevent your foot tiring on smaller holds, and the padded lining will keep your foot snug. Our sticky and durable FS Quattro™ rubber ensures long lasting performance.

The Silex Lace features a super-comfortable last, yet full length lacing right to the toe also adds precision. 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. Silex is a shoe for the long-haul. For full days at the crag, multi pitch climbs or even extended training sessions at the wall, Silex is the ideal choice.

UK Climbing Gear Review no rating given just a review

A good all-round rock shoe and one of the most comfortable that we tested. It has a versatile if slightly wide fit. It performs better as a smearing shoe than on edges and isn't as stiff as you might expect considering it has a half-stiff midsole.
