History

Since its very early days, Boreal pursued a research and development program to improve the performance of rock shoes and boots for hikers and mountaineers. 

We produce all climbing shoes, trekking and mountaineering boots in-house at our factory in Villena, Spain. 

Many employees stay at BOREAL for their entire careers. The company values and rewards the employees and we believe this is reflected in the consistent high quality of the footwear produced.

Philosophy

BOREAL has always focused on gaining first-hand experience and input through close collaboration with the world’s best climbers and mountaineers. It is also necessary to have the right commercial vision, manufacturing facilities and the passion to develop the revolutionary products which have so widely influenced the outdoor footwear market.
