Secure fit

This footwear utilizes a single BOA Ip-1 dial and Velcro strap for its closure system. The BOA dial can be tightened and loosened in increments, while an instant release can also be done by pulling the button on the top. The dial is responsible for the midfoot and top foot areas' retention, while the Velcro strap governs the forefoot section.
