V2 Rand

The V2 Rand provides a 2-band tensioning system, ensuring a great fit for the heel and arch of the foot.

In most rock boots, the heel is tensioned with a basic single band of rubber, which simply pulls and compresses the heel cup. With the V2 Rand, Boreal have used 2 bands to tension a much larger area. By providing tension further towards the front, the shoe is pulled into the arch of the foot and the heel is more securely held. This eliminates any dead space, creating a precise and comfortable fit.
