BALLET GOLD - CLASSIC sale
$108.88 - 35% Off
The BALLET GOLD is one
of the all time classic rock shoes and
one of the few remaining that is meticuoulsy
hand crafted and board lasted - the other
being the Boreal ACE. Board lasting is
a process of wrapping the upper "cut"
around a leather board, stitching it into
place and then adding a mid-sole, sticky
rubber outsole and finally, when the shoe
is removed from the last - an insole.
It is the most time intensive and expensive
way to make a shoe, but many would argue
the best. The resulting structure is supportive,
durable and offers long term predictible
performance... as well as the option for
multiple resoles. The BALLET'S mid ankle
cut adds further support for technical
edging and also protection in fist and
off-width cracks. To-the- toe lacing can
be relaxed for twisting into cracks or
snugged up for superb edging precision.
Same tall sticky rubber and rands as the
venerable ACE with 4.6 - 5.2 mm size graded
sticky FS Quattro rubber under foot. A
great "free wall" shoe and good
all arounder. Crafted in Spain, delivered
Fitting tip: if you wear a men's 10.5
US street shoe (UK9.5) order this size
for comforatable crack climbing and long
routes. I you want the ACE to be "stiffer"
for standing on knobs and thin face holds
go down 1/2 size to a UK9.

|Use the SHOE TOOL to clean and prepare
your soles before each bouldering session

crazy. Use a little water and either soft
nylon or stiff brass bristles to remove
dirt and oxidized rubber. Edges can be tuned
with sand paper, crepe eraser will keep
uppers lookin' good. Leash hole in handle.
