The EB (from the name of its founder, Emile Bourdonneau) success story started 60 years ago with the first pair of climbing shoes, the Super Gratton.

This new technology, awarded an Oscar de l’Exploration in 1975, was integral to the development of climbing as a sport, Super Gratton being worn by Patrick Edlinger, amongst other climbers.

Today, this pioneering brand is once again at the forefront with a brand 100% dedicated to beginners. Affordable, easy to use and very comfortable, 6A offers a range of climbing shoes to make climbing more fun and accessible to a greater public.
