Boreal a family footwear manufacturing company
Boreal is a family-led company that was founded in Spain in 1975 and specialised in climbing and outdoor equipment. The company was founded by Jesus Garcia Lopez in an area of Spain that has a rich history in footwear manufacturing. The first line they introduced was a line of footwear, crafted from very high-quality Norwegian welted leather. As their reputation grew, the brand caught the attention of the Gallego brothers, renowned rock climbers who partnered with Jesus to develop a rubber-soled shoe that would be designed specifically for rock climbing. Boreal’s first rock shoe “El Capitan” was born.
By the 1980s, Boreal was successfully selling its shoes in popular outlets, such as the Yosemite Mountain Shop, and news of their superior models spread throughout the world. The brand became a global success as it continued to produce and engineer technically advanced rock shoes, climbing shoes and hiking shoes that consistently pushed the boundaries further than what people had thought was possible before. Their innovations also helped some of the world’s top climbers and athletes attain their goals and even break records.
Since they began, Boreal have been at the forefront of the development, innovation and technology of climbing equipment and footwear. Boreal shoes included, among other things, the world’s first 8a + in 1983 and the world’s first 9a, 7 years later. In the mid 1980s, Boreal once again astonished by introducing a sticky rubber surface onto the Ninja climbing shoe which changed the face of climbing as a sport. It continues to be a technology used in most climbing shoes to this day. In 1984, Boreal began to integrate a waterproof and breathable lining that would later become known as Gore-Tex lining – a complete game changer for its durable, highly breathable and comfortable properties.
