Delivering fit solutions purpose-built for performance, the BOA® Fit System is now available on Heckel safety shoes range. The BOA® Fit System revolutionizes traditional lacing by delivering an ultra-efficient fit for an optimal connection with your equipment and enhanced security.

Originating in the world of sports

Boa was born from the desire of a snowboard enthusiast to improve the fit and performance of the lacing system of his boots to enable him to achieve greater feats. After numerous prototypes and field tests, the BOA® Fit System was born, offering quick, easy and precise adjustment. In 2001, the first snowboard boots with the BOA® Fit System were launched under the K2 and VANS brands.

Currently, the BOA® Fit System is used in millions of trainers, shoes and boots, and helps people around the world reach their best on any terrain, whether it's hiking, golf or at their place of work.


The BOA® Fit System is custom-made for every product and use. It comprises three parts:

  • Micro-adjustable dial that adjusts fit with precision click by click
  • Lightweight and super-strong lace expertly configured for comfort and performance
  • Low-friction lace guides for lace ensuring a smooth closure, every time

Tie your shoes quickly and easily in just 3 steps:

Push in the wheel to engage. 

Turn to the right to tighten to the desired fit.

Pull up for quick release. Take your shoes off with ease.


Far from being a simple alternative to laces, the BOA® Fit System is designed to improve performance.


Make effortless micro-adjustments, even while you work, and stay fully focused on your tasks.

By offering you a micro-adjustable fit, the BOA® Fit System allows you to be one with your equipment for an improved dexterity, responsiveness and control.


The BOA® Fit System allows you to get your gear on and off fast and easily, no matter the conditions.


Engineered with ultradurable materials, the BOA® Fit System is extensively tested in the harshest conditions.

Dials and laces are designed to reduce contamination by shedding ice, dirt, oil and other elements.


No more trailing or long laces that get in the way! The BOA® solution laces are integrated directly into the system. Remove the risk of laces becoming entangled in machinery, or trips and falls from untied shoes!

The BOA® Fit System does not loosen by itself, ensuring shoes are extremely secure.


The pressure is distributed more evenly compared to conventional laces, which also reduces the risk of foot pain and significantly increases wearer comfort, especially over long periods.


The Boa® Fit System dials and laces are guaranteed for the lifetime of the product on which they are integrated.
