HAIX® is excited to announce the release of our new Airpower® XR2 Winter! We took our most popular Station/EMS boot and winterized it! What sets this new boot apart is the newly developed rubber winter sole which is extremely slip-resistant on ice and snow. Those who have already tested it say the grip is unbelievable on slick terrain.
Just like the Airpower® XR2, the inner liner is CROSSTECH®, so it offers the same level of heat insulation as our standard model. Our thicker HAIX® leather, the CROSSTECH® inner liner, and the built in climate system all work in tandem to keep your feet dry and comfortable no matter how much the temperature drops outside. These new winter EMS boots for women still have our durable soles that are heat, fuel and oil resistant. The Airpower® XR2 Winter is NFPA certified for emergency medical operations as well as certified to ASTM and CAN/CSA for toe protection, puncture, and electrical hazards.
Station and EMS boot with NFPA certification
Designed for the EMT, Paramedic and First Responder, you need a boot that lets you act on a moment’s notice while at the same time giving your feet the comfort they crave when faced with long days on shift duty. The quick in and out feature of the laced in front zipper allows you the advantage of a custom fit boot that can also put on in a hurry. Just adjust the lacing for a fit personalized to you. Slip on, zip, and go.
Built with an ultra-light composite toe, HAIX Airpower® XR2 Winter boots offer the ultimate in toe protection and comfort with its roomy toe box. It offers chemical and bloodborne pathogen protection, and electrical hazard protection. NFPA certified for emergency medical operations for the EMS responder, the Airpower® XR2 Winter is also ASTM certified for electrical hazards. What more could you ask for in rescue boots you can also wear in the station?
Waterproof and Chemical Protection with CROSSTECH®
The HAIX Airpower® XR2 Winter features a CROSSTECH® inner liner which allows your boot to be not only breathable, but durably waterproof. CROSSTECH® also offers the added benefits of chemical and bloodborne pathogen protection. Not only that, the breathable inner liner works together with the HAIX® climate system to keep your footwear dry and comfortable in hot or cold weather or on wet or dry days. No worries when having to work out in the rain or at a messy accident scene, your footwear will keep you protected and comfortable on all fronts.
Built in Arch Support
The HAIX Airpower® XR2 Winter has much needed arch support built in to every boot. Proper arch support realigns the foot and ankle to their neutral position, helping, in many cases, to restore natural foot function. As a result, it will help alleviate problems in other parts of the body, like your knees and ankles. The cushioned insole offers all day wear comfort, especially when combined with the built in arch support.
Slip and Heat Resistant Soles and Quick Drying Insoles
The heat resistant soles of the HAIX Airpower® XR2 Winter are extremely slip resistant as well as resistant to oil and fuel. Accident scenes, especially ones that involve vehicle fires, are not an issue as you don’t have to worry about your soles melting on hot asphalt or worry about exposing your soles to fuel and oil leaks. HAIX® soles keep you sure footed so you can focus on doing your job.
The insole’s moisture wicking properties guarantee to combat the issue of sweaty feet, especially after a long day on the job. Not only do they help to absorb foot sweat, the antibacterial properties help to fight foot odor and reduce the presence of fungus and bacteria. With comfort cushioning, the separate heel cup aids in keeping your foot in the correct position for foot health. HAIX® insoles and machine washable and quickly air dry so you can get a quick refresh and be back on the job in no time.
Sun Reflect Technology and Secura Liner®
European craftsmanship is unmistakable when you look at this boot. European leather guarantees your boots will stand the test of time. The added Sun Reflect technology in the leather of these safety boots prevents you boots from heating up on you when you are out in the sun. Your feet will feel the difference since cooler leather on the outside translates to cooler feet on the inside.
HAIX®’s patented Secura Liner® feature protects you from the irritation of liner pull out. Your inner liner stays securely in place since it is sealed along with the leather beneath the sole, and is not a “sock” that is glued in under the insole like you see in other boots. No other boot manufacturer offers this unique feature. Nothing worse than having your liner come out of the boot along with your foot. HAIX Airpower® XR2 Winter is your first choice for a Station/EMS safety boot.

Runs larger than I was expecting
I usually wear a women's 8 Medium, as with a previous pair of ankle boots from Haix, and these arrived with too much heel slipage. The great customer service representative told me that that these were running a little large, so I exchanged for a half size smaller. I wanted to buy these for our icy MN winters, but they were out of stock until now. I'm excited to see if these have more traction than my last pair (that are my summer boots).
Very pleased with this boot
I am always suspicious of reviews that score top scores, but i cannot find a thing wrong with this boot. Fit true to size, much much lighter than my previous Haix, great sole protection, break in took about one day. Easy to get on. I have not tried in true water yet, just rain and that was fine. They are a warm boot, the first day my feet were noticeably hot. Not as bad now (one week) so not sure if it is the boot or me getting used to them. Shipping was prompt, receiving my boots in less than a week which is quick for my area. I have ordered a pair for my husband based on my experience with these so far.
