Breathable comfort with HAIX® Climate System

The Airpower XR26 ensures your feet stay dry and comfortable by utilizing special foams that absorb moisture from your feet between the inner lining and the leather.

Airpower XR26 runs pretty true to size in length, but a little narrow in width because of the built in arch support. We recommend going to a wider width. The boots come in either a medium or wide width.
The Airpower XR26 has a composite toe cap which exceeds ASTM testing requirements. It also has a rubber edge that enhances the comfort of the transition zone between the toe cap and the boot.
The Airpower XR26 features hydrophobic nubuk leather which allows the boots breathe while keeping the leather water resistant, and a waterproof inner liner of GORE-TEX which will keep your feet dry and comfortable
While the 2 boots have a similar fit and many features in common, the Airpower XR26 has a sueded Nubuck leather as opposed to an oiled Nubuck leather. The Airpower XR26 does not have the extra layer of cut resistant material that the Airpower XR200 has and has black and gold laces instead of the orange laces the Airpower XR200 has for visibility. Airpower XR26 is slightly shorter than Airpower XR200, measuring in at 6 inches, while the Airpower XR200 is 7 inches in height.

Great work boot

These are awesome work boots i work in all kinds of conditions dirt, grass, pavement, rain, mud, gravel, you name it these boots have been thru it all and continue taking a beating. They didn't need any break in period I took them out the box put them on and never once did i have any issues with them. Great boots I recommend them to everyone needing a good all around boot. I'll be ordering another pair as soon as these are wore out.

Nice mid weight boot

I have had the XR26 9.5 medium for a month or so. My first impression was that they looked small, however the size was spot on. They fit exactly as my XR200'S do just not quite as comfortable. Nice wide opening, easy to slip my foot in. They seem a little stiffer than the XR200, but not quite as much support, which is I assume supposed to be that way. The tongues do slide to one side which is uncomfortable, but I've taken to taking a lace wrap around the slot in the tongue at least until everything settles in. The laces are a bit short, with the typical lace knot there is 1 inch remaining on either side so no double knot. I wear them in the wood shop and sawmill and they don't really show the wear I get with the XR200's. The finish of the boot is amazing as after my normal wear and tear no polish is needed. The finish stands up way better than the XR200's, but for logging the 200's are more substantial. Weights are, 200's 2 lbs 3.1 oz. the XR26 1 lb 15.5 oz. Overall as nice mid weight boot.

Excellent boot

I'm a truck driver on shift 12+ hours a day and I don't feel any fatigue in my feet at the end of the day since wearing these boots. Give them a few days to break in and you're set. An all black model in this height would be nice.



Great boots!

These boots were great right out of the box. They fit true to size, and didn't require any break in. I went with the wide width as suggested, abs they fit great. I brought them with me riding atv's in the rain for three days and they kept my feet completely dry! As far as my routine work as a contractor, they're very comfortable working all day in mixed environments.



Most comfortable work boot Ive owned

I work at sea on a vessel in arctic conditions and the bering sea. These boots are extremely comfortable working on a steel deck and keep my feet very warm in "summer polar conditions". The Airpower offers a pretty ideal amount of support while being very east to climb ladders and platforms. The only downside is the treads wear down pretty fast on non skid deck surfaces.

Amazing Boot

Haix boots are amazing boots, my fiancé love his boots.. however he asked for a 10 and realized after wearing them he should’ve got a 9.5 but besides the sizing issue he loves them.. I’m sure we will be purchasing a 9.5 in the near future!

Great item. I kept reading on here that you had to break the shoe in but I just took it to work from the first day I’ve never had an issue with it. When I was in the military I wore extra wide boots and I got the wide for these; it was a perfect fit.

5 stars

Great landscaping boots

Waterproof with great toe box protection and angle support while still being flexible. A lot more flexible than the logging boots, as others have said.



XR26...the slimmed down XR200

These are my third pair of Haix boots and probably my favorites so far. These are made on the same last as the XR200 but are lighter weight and faster to break in. My one complaint on these and it is a minor one is that the laces feel very cheap compared to the XR200 laces. If they would charge $5 more and give me laces to the XR200 I would be very happy. These are very comfortable and to me feel like a good hiking boot. Due to being slightly lower cut than the XR200, these are not as stiff and provide less ankle support than the XR200. Also, because they lack the chainsaw protection of the XR200, they bend better at the upper and are much less thick which in turn makes them feel cooler. I would recommend these to everybody. I would love to see these in different colors and maybe make an 8-inch version, maybe call it the XR28. Great boots, great quality, very comfortable.

Good boots

Good boots , length is good , but I ordered and received wide , but they are not particularly wide compared to North American sizes . I would like wider .



Great Boots

This is my first pair of Haix and won't be my last! I am only 12 hours into wearing them but there is no break in at all and they are very light on the feet. The alignment of the lace hooks really allow the boot to snug up and support the ankle and the toe box provides plenty of room and comfort.
OI ordered the wide boot as it said they fit narrow and these fit me perfect so that is definitely true. Other than the width they fit true to size.

Overall I definitely recommend this boot!
