Review: Boreal Kerala is Perfect for Summer Hiking

Boreal Kerala

The Boreal Kerala is a light and comfortable boot with female specific fit in mind.

It’s designed for general trekking and hill walking and has top-spec premium quality materials that make it durable and long-lasting.

Boreal says, “The upper is constructed from high quality split leather and synthetic textile with a rubber toe-cap for protection resulting in great balance of suppleness, low weight, durability and good looks.”

The Kerala comes fitted with a waterproof lining that we found breathed well and was reliable in all weather conditions.

The Kerala is built on a board-lasted platform with a full length midsole for good underfoot support and protection on rough terrain.

From rooted trails and scree to big talus fields, the Kerala keeps your sole cushioned.

The Vibramâ„¢ sole offers grip as good as any summer hiker on a wide variety of surfaces with well-spaced tread blocks that avoid clogging in muddy conditions.

There’s a TPU piece under the heel for added torsion control. Kerala is ideally suited to two/three season hiking and backpacking below the snow line.
