European sales of the safety footwear that features the system exceeded 2.7M pairs in 2018. It compromises of a dial, guides and lace system, which is guaranteed for the lifetime of the boot it is integrated to. Several videos of the system being used to pull trucks and lift pallets of concrete blocks have also gone viral.

Rock Fall have now developed five new styles – now in stock – which along with the BOA® Fit System, also feature the eco-friendly Sympatex® Waterproof Membrane, which has been tested to not leak for an incredible 100 hours. The styles also include a recycled Ortholite® footbed which retains its shape and FORCE10® components which are tested to extraordinary performance levels. Two of the styles also include the  IMPACT SHIELD™ Internal Metatarsal Guard to offer complete protection from falling objects.

Working with BOA® is very exciting for us as it enables us to make something different and honestly, gives us a competitive market advantage domestically.

We now have 7 styles featuring the BOA® Fit System and it’s a key part of our future development strategy”
