The Hera was not forged on Mt. Olympus, but that doesn’t mean it can’t possess some mythic qualities. The Tongue Tied™ BOA® Closure System on the Hera looks like it could have been handed down from the gods because it utilizes a tongue integrated BOA® that connects to a side mounted reel to close the tongue and securely hold your heel, while a BOA® Coiler™ Lacing system retracts excess coil for fast, secure shell lacing. The Intuition™ Support Foam Liner Technology with Aegis™ Antimicrobial Coating seems like it could be a legend made up to explain the performance fit and all-day comfort the Hera provides thanks to it’s heat-moldable, high-density foam. “God-like performance” may be overstating the capabilities of the Hera, so a better description might be: a mid-flexing boot designed for all-mountain performance.
