BOA- Making Golf Shoes Fit the Best

by | Feb 17, 2019 | PRO SHOP

BOA-Fit To Go Further

Buying golf shoes is pretty much a personal choice. Some of us purchase because our favorite player is wearing a specific shoe or brand. A friend wears a particular shoe and raves about its comfort. Whatever your reason for making your next golf shoe purchase, I recommend the BOA Fit System to make your next pair the best you ever bought or wore.

BOA’s latest textile-based fit system is ideal for spikeless shoe models as it was designed specifically for athletic, low-cut footwear that matches aesthetically, meets demands for light weight and strong materials, and, as all BOA Fit Systems, improves fit and performance on the course. This BOA Fit System integrates BOA’s super strong TX4 soft lace made of polyester and Dyneema, Form TX nylon guides with Teflon that are specially  engineered to hold shape and interact smoothly with the textile lace, and low profile dial that allows golfers to fine tune the fit-on-the-fly and is designed to withstand mud, dirt and sand on the course. I have a higher instep on my left foot than my right so I can fit both my feet with comfort.

BOA is changing the way the top golf shoe companies merchandise shoes. Foot Joy, adidas, Nike and ECCO all have incorporated the BOA Fit System:

  • The new FootJoy Fury Boa provides enhanced stability and turf grabbing traction, featuring the BOA Fit System for superior performance and lasting comfort. The Fury features BOA’s durable IP1 that offers incremental adjustment with a mirrored design for left and right dial rotation, and FootJoy’s exclusive heel-mount BOA integration that holds the foot down and back for the ultimate secure fit.
  • Adidas Forgefiber Boa is designed with the Boa Fit System from the ground up for men and women and the first Adidas golf shoe featuring BOA’s textile, lace and guides, providing an adaptive feel and customized fit. This spikeless, responsive shoe features the ultra durable and lightweight TX4 lace for smooth operation and L6 dial that offers maximum impact protection and resistance to the elements.
  • Nike Vapor Pro Boa with the System provides a customized fit for maximum comfort and security, and better access to the shoe’s traction technology. The Boa lace is comprised of 49 strands of stainless steel, coated in nylon for abrasion resistance, the guides are composed of tightly woven fibers designed to minimize friction and allow dirt to easily escape, and the micro-adjustable L6 dial offers maximum impact protection.

The new ECCO Biom G3 Boa features the Fit System for the ultimate in security and a customized performance fit. Expertly constructed from ECCO’s Yak leather, the Biom G3 strikes the perfect balance between modern, athletic style and performance-enhancing design. The BOA Fit System is micro-adjustable for a fast, effortless, precision fit, while Gore-Tex provides waterproof and breathable protection, and ZARMA-TOUR spikes are anti-clogging for excellent traction with every swing.
