Airpower XR1 Pro


 What size should I order?


We have made some upgrades to the original version of this popular boot so that Airpower XR1 Pro is triple NFPA certified! Developed with first responders in mind, these wildland, EMS, and USAR boots can take you to the front line and back with the comfort you need when logging long hours on your feet. A multi-purpose leather boot that is NFPA certified, you have the convenience of three boots in one. Wear it in the station, on EMS calls, to wildland brush fires, and Urban Search and Rescue deployments. Anatomically constructed and built with a lightweight composite toe, HAIX® Airpower XR1 Pro boots give your feet plenty of room to move around while protecting them from toe impact and compression because there is nothing worse than a protective toe that pinches or restricts your movement. The added profiled rubber toe bumper keeps the toe area protected from cuts, scrapes and abrasions that could damage the leather. Built in Arch Support The HAIX® Airpower XR1 Pro's built-in arch support provides much needed support to the arch, which takes the brunt of the pressure when standing. Proper support of the arch helps to prevent foot pain when on your feet all day and possible foot problems later on. And the newly design ladder shank on the inside offers the maximum amount of support to the sensitive arch area when on ladder rungs. And with the laced in zipper system, any firefighter can adjust the lacing for a more personal fit while enjoying the benefits of a quick in and out boot. Because on the job, seconds matter.  Waterproof and Sun Reflect technology The HAIX® Airpower XR1 Pro is both waterproof and breathable with the added benefit of chemical and bloodborne pathogen protection. Working in tandem with the HAIX® climate system, your feet will stay dry, comfortable, and protected, thanks to these leather rescue and wildland boots – even in times of extended exposure to water. The upper material of these European leather EMS and USAR boots uses Sun Reflect technology, which reduces the solar heating effect and keeps feet cooler by reflecting the sun’s rays.  Slip Resistant Soles and Quick Drying Insoles The soles of the HAIX® Airpower XR1 Pro are extremely slip resistant which offers an effective grip when exposed to water and oil. So even when you’re on a rescue and you need to move fast, these leather rescue boots will be able to keep you on your feet. The cushioned insole offers the ultimate in comfort, especially when combined with the built-in arch support. The insoles are anatomically formed to deliver a perfect fit and are made to provide excellent moisture absorption and as well as quick drying qualities. When your insoles get completely dirty after long days on duty, all you need to do is throw then in the wash, air dry, and they’ll be ready the next day’s work. Secura Liner® and CROSSTECH® Protected. Secura Liner® guarantees that your HAIX EMS rescue boot’s liner will never pull out or wrinkle over time. The CROSSTECH® liner also ensures that the gear is comfortable and safe against blood, chemicals, and body fluids. Engineered in Germany EMS Boots Tri-Certified for EMS, Wildland, and USAR Secura Liner ® – will never wrinkle up or pull out over time CROSSTECH ® inner liner, waterproof, breathable, bacteria, chemical, and bloodborne pathogen resistant HAIX ® Sun Reflect leather keeps feet cooler in direct sunlight HAIX ® Arch Support System supports your foot in its natural, ideal position HAIX ® Climate System for temperature balance HAIX ® Lacing System offers the entry and exit of a zipper boot with the personal fit of a lace up boot Carbon protective toe cap and exterior rubber toe cap Puncture protection sole Oil Resistant Boots Heat resistant rubber sole ASTM certified for electrical hazard resistance (EH Rated) Learn more about HAIX® footwear technology.

Maximum safety for First Responders

You focus on what matters: Putting out brush fires, saving lives, or putting your technical rescue training to the test . Your Airpower XR1 Pro does triple duty keeping you safe while out on the front lines.

Maximum protection tri-certified for EMS, Technical Rescue and Wildland firefighting

Your health is priority. The Airpower XR1 Pro offers all-round protection for your feet, because it is puncture resistant, protects your toes, and protects you from the dangerous fluids you come in contact with on the job. It is a tri-certified EMS, technical rescue and wildland firefighting boot ready for service.

Protect your toes with our composite toe cap

The integrity of your feet, and especially your toes, is important. The Airpower XR1 Pro is equipped with composite toe caps that are lighter weight yet still keep your toes protected to the highest safety requirements. It helps reduce foot and leg fatigue from long hours on the job.

Keep yourself safe from dangerous fluids thanks to CROSSTECH® technology

Your job can expose you to dangerous situations. The CROSSTECH® technology in your Airpower XR1 Pro's inner lining not only keeps your boot waterproof, it keeps you protected from potentially hazardous fluids like blood, body fluids and chemicals. Your feet stay dry, you stay safe.

Keep your footing with HAIX® protective sole

With the Airpower XR1 Pro extremely slip resistant sole, you can walk and run with confidence. The integrated safety sole won't melt on hot pavement and won't disintegrate from oil, fuels and chemical exposures at accident scenes. As an added feature, the sole is EH rated as well.

Comfort to endure the longest hours

You spend long hours on your feet. We make sure it doesn't feel like it.

Comfort fit with HAIX® cushioned insole

HAIX insoles keep your feet and your boots fresher and more comfortable on the job. Our insoles absorb perspiration to keep your feet dry even under the most rigorous conditions. Added cushioning provides extra comfort. The micro fiber design is lightweight, breathable and machine washable. Replace occasionally to keep your boots fresh and comfortable.

Needed support for your feet with the HAIX® Arch Support System

You can perform your job duties better and with more stability with the Airpower XR1 Pro. The built in arch support relieves stress on your feet by distributing weight more evenly. Walk without pain, improve your general well being, and increase your ability to perform without the distraction of foot and leg pain.

Quick in and out zipper lacing system

When seconds matter, you can rely on the zipper lacing system in our Airpower XR1 Pro to give you a more personalized fit while ensuring you can rush out to the next call without the hassle of lacing up. When your boots arrive, adjust the lacing for a personalized fit just for you. Then enjoy that fit every time, every day. Slip on, zip up, and go.

Breathable comfort with HAIX® Climate System

The Airpower XR1 Pro allows your feet to breathe by absorbing the moisture from your feet into special foams between the inner lining and the leather. With every step you take, moist air is released and fresh air comes in through the vent holes at the top of the boot. The Climate System essentially works likes an air conditioning system in your boot.

Your questions. Our honest answers.

Yes, you can buy replacement parts for the Airpower XR1 Pro such as insoles, laces, and zippers. You can find these items on our website on the accessories page. If you are looking to retread or refurbish your Airpower XR1 Pro boots, check out the HAIX Extended Wear program page.
Yes, your boot fit can be adjusted on the Airpower XR1 Pro by tightening or loosening the laces on either side of the zipper mechanisim. For a slightly more individualized fit, boots can be adjusted with an alternate insole. A blue insole for a narrower fit (thickest), a yellow insole for a wider fit (thinnest). Extra insoles can be purchased on the accessories page.
Yes, the front lacing zipper system of the Airpower XR1 Pro allows the individual user to adjust the fit to their own personal needs, offering more ankle support as needed, or possibly offering a looser fit in the lower leg for larger calves. Boots should be adjusted to your preference when they are received, then just zip in or out from then on. A second adjustment to the lacing may be needed after the boots have gone through their initial break in period.
The Airpower® XR2 and Airpower® R2 are certified to NFPA 1999 for emergency medical operations while the Airpower® XR1 is certified to both NFPA 1999 and NFPA 1977 for Wildland Firefighting.The Airpower® XR2 and Airpower R2 are both 8" in height while the Airpower® XR1 is 9" in height. Both the Airpower® XR1 and XR2 are composite toe with non-metallic puncture plates while the Airpower® R2 has a steel toe and steel puncture plate. The Airpower® R2 differs from the other 2 models in that it has a leather toe that is polishable. Since the Airpower® XR2 and XR1 are so similar, the Airpower® XR1 has a red NFPA 1977 label on the left boot.
With the CROSSTECH inner liner, the Airpower XR1 Pro does offer protection from liquids, chemicals, and bloodborne pathogens. The boots are tested and certified according to NFPA 1990 (1992) standards for biopenetration.
The Airpower XR1 Pro runs similar in size to your athletic shoe size, but because of the built in arch support, they do run on the narrow side. The Airpower XR1 Pro comes in medium, wide, and extra wide widths. It is recommended that you order one width larger than your usual width. For example, most people who normally wear a medium, would wear a wide in this boot.

They checked every box I was looking for

For years now I have been wearing Haix boots for firefighting or rescue operations and they checked every box I was looking for. Whether you want to run to a medical call, do technical rescue or simply work around the station, they are what you need. Using high quality materials, they are the most comfortable and durable work boots I have ever worn. The XR1 Pro are light weight, breathable, fast to get in or out with the front zipper and all around NFPA tri-certified. I trust Haix with my feet since they have already saved me from getting hurt multiple times before and that’s one of the...

Simply the best shoes on the market.

I have been purchasing Haix boots for my fire department job for the past 10 years. The best footwear I have used in my 40 years in the service.



Worth every bit

I have been using haix for about five years now , the xr 2 and my xr 1 boots are the only boots I will buy . I wear the xr1 every single day . Most days I wear them for 10-12 hours . I like a majority of the features and cannot find any negatives. I wear these for everyday use, as well as part time and volunteer ems . Overall I would not consider any other brand , I intend on continuing to buy the xr1 indefinitely.



Best Boots I’ve Purchased

I have been wearing Haix since 2016. Prior to Haix I have worn Pro Warrington, White’s, & Cosmos. The Haix have been a game changer. I have a wide foot and always struggle finding a boot that can accommodate as well as meet the certification needs for firefighting. The Extra wide offering from Haix provides me with a perfect fit. When I wear these boots I feel like I am cheating because they feel so good. For every day station life and running calls they are perfect. For initial attack on Wildland fires they work really well. I have no issues wearing them on mobile attacks. I will say that in places wear you can’t mobile attack and you need to use hose packs I switch to my Danners.

Like I said these boots fit perfect. They feel like you are wearing athletic shoes.

The only complaint I have with Haix is that the extra wide is not available in more styles of the boots and shoes offered.



The BEST boots

After wearing out a set of decent boots in a year, I did some research, and found Haix to be the most recommended, online, and in person. Now that I own a pair, I see why! All the safety features are outstanding, but the biggest thing to me is my feet don't hurt after a 24 hour shift. As a bonus, the front zip allows me to take them off knowing they'll be back on in under ten seconds if a call drops.



Airpower XR1 Pro

This is my fourth pair of haix boots and you just cant beat the quality

Worth every penny!!

I use to work as a paid on call FF many years ago and thats when I learned about Haix.
currently I work for a power as a substation High Voltage Electrician. I’m on my feet all day on gravel and these are the best shoes to wear.. I’m surprised they don’t lean towards the Eletrical field more..
these boots are not meant to climb poles (which I do not) but if you on the feet all day, it is worth the money..
Great job!!

Boots are great!

I've only been wearing them for about 3 weeks now but I love them. I am on my feet for close to 14 hours a day and my feet stay comfortable and dry all day long. I haven't had them on any wildfires yet. I'm interested to see how they do then. There was very minimal break in time for these boots also! I would highly recommend purchasing them.



Tough Boots

This boots hold up well to abuse. I am a firefighter and have always heard great things about the boots. I was use to going through at least 3 pairs of duty boots a year and have had my Haix boots for 2 years now. My only complaint is that I have had to send them off to be repaired due to the sole and toe cap cover separating from the boots and currently am having the same issue again. Tough boots but wish this would have happened.

Great boots

This is the second pair of boots for myself. The fit and comfort is second to nothing. I work as a Correctional officer and volunteer Fire fighter / First responder. Both being on my feet all day long these boots are a life saver due to the comfort. Very durable and breathe very well.

HAIX AirPower XR1

Amazing boot for the money!! I normally buy cheap boots about every 6 months to a year. I decided to spend the money and buy a really good boot this time to keep from wasting money. The only thing is these boots are very stiff and it’ll probably take a month to break them in good. That being said they are well worth the money. The only advice I’d give is order a half size bigger than what you think you need and order them wide. Very satisfied with my purchase!!



Confidence in your boot to get you through a challenging situation.

HAIX Airpower XR1 Pro fits extremely well and has a utility and hardened toughness that instills a type of equipment confidence that promotes success in the field. The boot design is heavy constructed so I made time to break them in wearing them inside. Amazingly after a short period of time the boots fit as if they were custom made. On different types of terrain and as Autumn unfolds the boots don't care if it's raining or shinning outdoors and they feel good and protect without inhibiting movement and keeping fatigue under control. Overall great fitting boot design with lots of utility built in.



Best Boots I have put on my feet

This is my second pair of these boots. I used to wear redwings but their quality and service is of $100.00 boots not $400.00 boots. The quality of HAIX is second to none the workmanship is on point as well as fit and function. My new favorite Boots
