Boreal classifies the Stingma as their new high-performance shoe. Unfortunately, the mellow slingshot heel and lacing system don't provide enough tension for serious face climbing, although the shoe strikes a decent balance with comfort. Similarly, the forefoot fit and last aren't aggressive enough for the Stingma to rage on the steeps. This is a versatile technical performer that doesn't excel at any one thing. The Stingma suits climbers with a medium to wide forefoot.
Decent all-around technical performance.
