The Andrea Boldrini Apache 5 is a more downturned and aggressive than the old Apache 5 making them more suited to steeper overhanging routes and boulders. As is the case with all Boldrini shoes these are amazingly comfortable even when severely downsizing, and for the vast majority of people they leave no dead space.
The Z style velcro fastening system allows a dialed in fit and makes for quick changes in and out of the shoes. The forefoot also uses an X tension system which provides more support the harder you are pressing on your toes and the tight fitting heel provides sensitivity and security for heel hooks in any position.
The Apache 5 uses the Full Contact Sole design, this is essentially the same as Sportiva's 'No Edge Construction' (although Boldrini actually came up with this design first) and means that your toes are always as close to the rock as possible for better sensitivity and less roll. A Lorica upper will hold its shape over time and the breathable tongue provides some ventilation.
