Your questions. Our honest answers.

The Black Eagle® Tactical line of boots are either of all leather or mostly leather with some textile. All leather is sourced from Europe and is thicker and more durable than most leathers you see in boots today. The Tactical line also has a waterproof inner liner. Either GORETEX® or CROSSTECH®. The Black Eagle® Athletic line has uppers constructed entirely of microfiber textile and has no waterproof inner liner.
Yes the side zipper of the Black Eagle Athletic 2.1 T Mid Side Zip 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 across the forefoot for wider feet. 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.
Yes you can buy replacement parts for the Black Eagle Athletic 2.1 T Mid Side Zip such as insoles and laces. You can find these items on our website on the accessories page. If you are looking to retread or refurbish your Black Eagle Athletic 2.1 T Mid Side Zip boots, check out the HAIX Extended Wear program.
The Black Eagle Athletic 2.1 T Mid Side Zip is eligible for the Black Eagle® 2 year warranty for durability. Purchasers can opt to add on one additional year to the HAIX® 1 year warranty by signing up. Certain exclusions apply, see webpage for details.
Black Eagle Athletic 2.1 T Mid Side Zip 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.


After using these boots for almost a year, I can say these are well worth the money. Very comfortable to be, especially if you're having a busy shift.

Great Duty Boot

I bought these boots for duty with a southern sheriff office. They are very well made and handle the heat well. If I had to give one piece of advice if getting these. It would be to order whatever size you wear in a tennis shoe, but order in WIDE. The boots are narrow, and I didn't follow that advice from other reviews. So now I have a pair of once wore 11M sitting in my garage until I find someone to gift them too. LOL Seriously, if you order get your size in WIDE.

Width problem

I ordered a wide but still they are a little more narrow than I like



Great buy

I bought these because I needed new duty boots and the company sent me a 50% off deal. Glad I did. Way more comfortable than my usual Under Armour buy. The reason I rated 8/10 is because they run small. If you purchase, get 1/2 size larger, and wide. The break in period was a bit uncomfortable, but once the leather breaks in, they’re excellent. I walk 12 hour days, and no complaints! I’ve even recommended them to several other officers in my agency.



Excellent with a caveat.

These are typical excellent Haix quality, but my first pair really hurt my feet. I have other Haix boots in various styles but these seem to be slightly different in sizing and I needed a half size larger than normal. Otherwise they’re excellent.

Solid Boots

After about a month with the boots I can't really complain, the only noticeable knock on them is they run kind of slim but other than that great arch support, cushioning, the side zip is smooth and sturdy. This is my first pair of Haix and I would buy them again.



Black Eagle Athletic 2.1 T Mid Side Zip

I have had Haix boots in the past but never had side zip boots. Being wary after having a bad experience with another brand I took the leap and am glad I did. These are my go to station boots now.

Great but narrow

These are some of the finest boots I've ever owned. Quality construction all around. My only concern was with the width of the boot. Although I ordered the wide version, it was still very tight. My only hope is that they will soften and widen as I break them in.
