BOA FIT – Improve your Game from the Ground Up

BOA FIT: Want to improve your golf game? Start with the basics, your Golf Shoes

The shoes on your feet can make you a better golfer because when you are properly grounded and balanced, your putting and ball striking will be better, and you will have increased swing speed for better distance as well.

Shoes are not an exciting piece of your golf gear. The only person that typically notices them is you, and that’s usually when they hurt your feet or you have to re-tie them.

You can buy the best-looking, lightest, most technologically advanced golf shoes on the market, but if they don’t fit properly, you’ve just wasted your money. Probably lots of it. Comfortable, proper-fitting golf footwear is essential if you’re going to enjoy your time on the course to the fullest.

If you want to try a pair of what I think are the most comfortable, best-fitting shoes on the market today, then you need to try the Footjoy Hyperflex BOA.

This breathable, waterproof shoe features FootJoy’s all-new StratoFoam Cushioning System, which is specifically tuned for golf to deliver outrageously soft comfort and golf-specific energy return and support.  The shoe’s OptiFlex Outsole is designed to mimic the natural flex of the human foot, ensuring that the shoe flexes in the ideal location throughout each step and swing.  Pulsar Soft Spikes and molded traction numbs work in tandem to provide substantial grip in all types of underfoot conditions. Powered by BOA Fit System, this innovative new system features an asymmetrical configuration that ensures a dialed-in, precision fit with a reduction in pressure on the top of the foot. It enables the shoe to move with you, wrapping your foot for complete security, all while providing powerful support through the swing.

BOA Fit System – What is it?

In 2006, FJ and BOA Technology’s collaborative development of a unique, heel-mounted solution signified a game-changing moment in their approach to fit. By integrating the BOA dial into the heel of the shoe, BOA and FJ designers were able to effectively develop a “down and back” fit that encompasses both the forefoot and heel. In action, the integration of the BOA Fit System has been credited by many FJ + BOA loyalists for providing a performance fit that offers precision, stability, and power.

I personally consider the BOA Fit a game changer. This unique, patented design gives you the freedom to dial into a fast, effortless, precision fit every time you put the shoes on.

Why Choose BOA Fit?

The number one reason to choose a BOA Fit golf shoe is for an exact fit you can’t get anywhere else.  In other words, One Size does NOT FIT ALL, but BOA FIT fits all.

The BOA Fit System allows you to customize fit with an otherwise unattainable exactness. All of the configurations deliver concentrated closure to different zones for customizable control. The BOA lacing system is a patented system to replace traditional shoelaces with a patented micro-thin stainless-steel wire connected to a turning knob. This knob is used to tighten or loosen your laces providing a fit like a glove. With traditional laces, you can only tie them in so many ways. BOA allows you to turn the dial and make micro-adjustments until the shoes fit exactly how you need them to perform at your peak.

Another major reason to use BOA is the way it locks in the fit of your shoes. Traditional laces loosen and come untied as you walk, causing you to stop and adjust them throughout the round. Once you lock in your fit with the BOA dial, it stays exactly where you set it all round long. You get to adjust your shoes exactly how you like them, and you don’t have to worry about adjusting them as you play, so you stay focused on your game.

The third key reason to choose BOA is durability. The lace in the BOA Fit System is durable, made of multiple strands of ultra-thin aircraft-grade stainless steel, and coated by a specially engineered low-friction polymer. This system does not wear out the way shoelaces do. But if something does happen, the BOA Fit System dials and laces are guaranteed for the lifetime of the product on which they are integrated.


  • A glove-like custom fit, a smooth, even closure, and no pressure points.
  • Secure. Once locked into place, Boa laces stay that way. This powerful yet flexible closure allows the ideal amount of flexibility without compromise that will sacrifice performance.
  • On the Fly Micro-Adjustability – easy, one-handed adjustment with a fast turn of the Boa dial offering infinite degrees of fine tuning.
  • Quick on. Quick off.
  • Consistent Fit – No stretch or loosening of the laces with wear during play or over time.
