The most recent evidence of this are safety shoes equipped with the unique and patented Boa closure system. This is a system that finally puts an end to the traditional shoelace, guarantees a perfect fit, and ensures that the wearer literally acquires a ‘firm footing’ throughout the entire working day.

BOA Fit System®

The BOA Fit System® is used in some of the Bata Industrials collection. This unique system is used to secure fastening and even pressure distribution. The BOA system consists of a lace reel, a sturdy stainless steel lace and flexible lace guides.

Benefits of the BOA Fit System®

The end of untied and loose laces, which is a major cause of trip-and-fall incidents on the work floor.
A quick turn of the lace reel enables to attain the perfect fastening and fit with an easy click.
Fast release by moving the reel forwards, the shoe can be removed in a single motion.
If the upper part of the shoe becomes stretched in the course of a working day, a quick turn of the reel ensures a perfect fastening and fit of the shoe.
Made from aircraft-grade stainless steel, Boa laces are stronger per gram than tank armor.

Vibram® is the world leading specialist in outsoles for a variety of footwear. The Italian company is named after its founder, Vitale Bramani. Bramani is credited with inventing the first rubber lug soles for shoes. A lugsole is a thick rubber sole with deep indentations that improve the stability and traction.

Go to all safety shoes with a Vibram® outsole.

These soles were first used on mountaineering boots, replacing leather soles fitted with hobnails or steel cleats, commonly used up until then. Bata Industrials works together with Vibram® for safety shoes. A result of this cooperation is the sportive Bright collection.

A large part of our safety shoes are developed and produced in Best in Noord-Brabant. Our investments in robotics, Research & Development and advanced technologies are bearing fruit. Founded in the Czech Republic in 1894, Bata was one of the first manufacturers to sell its products all over the world.
