No more laces

Footwear enters a new century with a new lacing system. String laces belong to the last century as Bata Industrials launches Boa 213 safety shoes, fastened by a unique and patented lacing system.
The news system makes an end of traditional shoelaces with their hassles and snagging or tripping hazards, guarantees a perfect fit, and ensures that wearers acquire a firm footing throughout a working day.

The Boa system consists of a lace reel, a steel lace with seven strands of aircraft grade stainless steel bundled into a super strong core. The core is surrounded by 12 individual strands of stainless steel to create a strong, flexible, long-lasting lace, coated in a jacket of low friction polymer to provide a smooth, abrasion resistant surface, and flexible lace guides, ensuring even pressure distribution.
The patent prevents constriction of circulation in the foot, and the wearer can hardly tell whether he or she is wearing shoes. The Boa lacing system represents spectacular improvements on traditional lacing systems.


• One click enables a perfect fastening and fit.
• Pressure is distributed evenly for a consistent fastening.
• If the upper shoe becomes stretched during work, one adjustment of the lace reel restores the fit.
• No laces, no snagging or tripping hazard.
• Lightweight.
• On and off is quick and easy, even while wearing gloves.

• Easy Rolling System saves energy and increases comfort
