About Boulder Booties

Climbing shoe soles are made from high-friction rubber that assists a climber by improving footing during the climb. This rubber sole is easily made less effective/sticky when worn on the ground while walking between routes. Boulder Booties protect climbing shoes from dirt, moisture and other gunk as a climber is at the base of the wall before and after their climb. The canvas and elastic covers are not to be worn while rock climbing but are used only when on the ground while traveling between climbing spots and when storing your equipment. Boulder Booties are a reusable, durable, convenient and also increase the life and safety of the climbing shoes.

Danny Smith and David Teeters invented Boulder Booties in their final year at the University of TN, 2009, while earning engineering degrees. At that time, they had many years of climbing experience and finally recognized this long-standing problem facing the entire rock climbing community. After several months of development, Boulder Booties won multiple small business plan competitions in Knoxville, TN, but did not continue into the market because of other personal commitments from both inventors.

In 2014, while stationed at Beale Air Force Base, Danny decided to revitalize the project, joining forces with the designer extraordinaire and small business expert, Carlos Ruiz. Together, they have rebranded, found new manufacturing, and successfully taken the product to market.

Boulder Booties is a veteran owned, socially responsible company. A full 10% of all revenue is donated to various charity organizations.

Benefits

  1. Convenience - “It is such a hassle to have to take my climbing shoes off and then put them back on before and after every route, but I don’t want to get them dirty walking around. I hate having to clean my shoes.”
  2. Performance - “How do I make my climbing shoes last longer?” -or- “How can I climb better? My shoes are too slippery.”
  3. Comfort - “I wish I could buy lace up shoes. They are so much more comfy and a better fit, but I can’t take them off and on as easily as velcro.”
  4. Safety - “How can I make rock climbing safer?” -or- “How can I make my child safer while they are rock climbing?”

Alternatives

  1. Hang from the rope while you put your shoes on and take your shoes off. This is hard and annoying.
  2. Bring a plastic bag or disposable hospital booties out on the trail. It will rip on the first jagged surface.
  3. Stuff the climbing shoe clad foot into a tennis shoe, boot, or sandal. This is a dangerous tripping hazard, but very common!
  4. Let the shoe get dirty. Some people don’t worry walking around in the dirt, but the lifetime and performance of their climbing shoes will suffer.

Materials

  • Canvas is used as the primary material in the foot bed. It is weather proof, high friction, abrasion resistant, and rip-stop (tears will not perpetuate).
  • Super-stretch Lycra is the other primary material and is used on the heel and toe to grip the climbing shoe. There is a loop on the heel for hanging the booties.
  • 4” or 3” Heavy duty elastic banding is used as the center of the foot bed to allow for variable fit. Woven elastic bands are stronger, do not narrow when stretched, and resist “pulling” when snagged as compared to braided or knitted elastic.

Reviews

“I can’t count the number of times I have started off a route with a muddy shoe… killed my performance. Now, with my new Boulder Booties, I just pull them off right before I get on the rock and they’re sticky as they can be!” -Joe Schmo

“walking around in the dirt sucks… thanks to Boulder Booties, I don’t have to worry about where I step." -Scuba Steve

“My shoes lasted 2 months longer since I started using my Boulder Booties!” -Zebadia Boleiferous
