BOS features VJ shoes, made by M-Shoe Makers OY of Finland, Inov-8 shoes from the UK, and Icebug shoes, made by Icebug AB of Sweden. Jalas shoes, made by Urho Viljanmaa OY of Finland, have been discontinued, but we still have a few; see our SHOE DEALS page for them

POSTAGE: Postage for a single pair of shoes is $12.50, if they do not fit, a second pair will be sent postage-free.

SIZING: Sizes are given in UK sizes; to convert to US men's sizes add 1.0, to convert to US women's sizes add 2.5. Where Men's and Women's shoes are listed separately, it only refers to the shape of the shoes: Women's shoes are generally made with a narrower heel. If the description refers to an item as "shoes", it means no metal studs.



FEATURES: Unless noted, all models have an aggressive cleat pattern, and some models are also available with metal carbide studs molded into the cleats. They are made completely of synthetic materials, so, when they get wet, they do not soak up a lot of water, and they stretch very little. Some shoes are described as having "special lacing", which means some eyelets are replaced with fabric loops which allow the lace tension to even out.

The VJ shoes listed below are made on a straight last. The Integrator is equivalent to a US men's "C" width, while the others have a "C" width in the heel and a "D" width in the front. VJ makes other models that we do not usually keep in stock.

The older shoes are obviously available in only a few sizes. Check our SHOE DEALS for some of them.
