Upper Materials Used in the Construction

Made with smooth, waterproof leather on the outside, HAIX® Sun Reflect leather helps keep your footwear looking good and feeling cool. Sun protection treated leather ensures that your feet enjoy a cool, comfortable climate even on the inside. Enjoy the ASTM certified carbon composite safety toe cap; your toes will thank you if they ever get in a pinch! Also ASTM rated for electrical hazard resistance in its metal free construction.
HAIX® Climate System is made for these shoes to provide enough airflow through to avoid uncomfortable moisture and sweat. Helps to maintain the natural temperature balance in your footwear which especially important when having to spend long days on your feet. A storage compartment at the front of the boot keeps laces tucked away and out of sight. A clever rear pull tab at the top of the heel helps you pull these shoes on when you need to get going fast.

Insole, Lining and Footbed Of The HAIX® Black Eagle

The HAIX® Black Eagle Safety Boots are designed to cushion and support your feet while providing you with a removable, and washable, antibacterial insole which is cushioned and moisture repellant. Special CROSSTECH® inner lining is blood borne pathogen and chemical resistant. CROSSTECH® has created an insulated liner which is also waterproof and breathable for maximum comfort. The material is moisture wicking to keep you dry under any conditions. The HAIX Secura Liner® is specially designed to never wrinkle up or pull out of the footwear, making wrinkles a memory rather than a problem.

On the inside, the built in arch support of the Black Eagle Safety 52 mid hugs your heels and supports your arches to prevent standing fatigue while pronation support in the mid and insole area keeps your ankles from rolling or twisting away from you.

The Sole of HAIX®

Metal free puncture protection is a standard part of the HAIX® Black Eagle Safety Boot. Designed to be non-marking, the outsole gives you all weather, heel to toe grip and support. Note the tooth like pattern on the outer rubber, made for grip without catching and holding small rocks and other debris. An oil, fuel, and skid resistant rubber/pu outsole keeps you on your toes all day long.

Tough Enough

I have not broken in these boots hence my 8/10 rating. They feel a bit clunky but they have definitely done the job. Wearing these on an 8 or 10 hour shift I have not felt any discomfort and my feet do not feel sweaty. The upper part of the toe is very strong. A small oxygen tank was accidentally dropped on my foot but I never felt it.

I would recommend the purchase of this pair of boots as well as the brush kit and polish. These are an investment and should be taken care of. Once I break them in more I will edit my review but as of now I have no regrets with this purchase.

Great boots

I've had them for almost 2 weeks and so far so good, the break in period was about 2 days and now they're awesome

8 Aug 2018


Bought these to replace my worn out GSG-9 HAIXboots, got them, and, ended up wearing them 4 days in a row, 12 hours per day!!!!! No, problems, great fit, comfortable right out of the box!!!! Will buy more.......and recommend them highly to my friends and co-workers!!!!!!!!!

These boots are by the best that I have owned. They took about a week to break in and they feel amazing and I can wear them all day! I will definitely be doing future business with Haix!

No break-in period needed. Impressive details.

I bought these as my first pair of Haix last week. I hesitated to order boots online without trying them on, but recommendations from friends got me over it. It turns out the sizing instructions were spot-on. I wore the boots 10 hours a day for four days straight, in the office and in the field with no discomfort. I put them on, adjusted them, then forgot about them. Until a fire extinguisher dropped on my toes and I felt nothing. :) They can be adjusted perfectly, and the zipper is extremely convenient. Consider me a satisfied customer.

Comfortable Lightweight Side Zip Station Boot

I really like Haix boots for station wear. As a primary purchaser for my department, I am always looking for something new and better that I can provide for my firefighters. I have been waiting for a side zip boot option from Haix to fit those people who can't seem to get the front zip boots tight enough. As for the boots themselves, I have purchased and worn them every day for about a week. The first thing that comes to mind when trying to describe these boots is the constant squeaking. Every time you walk, the leather on the front where the laces are rubs and squeaks annoyingly. Outside, probably not a big deal but I have been wearing them in an office and it has become a running joke for people to mention my squeak when I am walking around. Otherwise, the boot is comfortable, considerably lighter than the other front zip models and it has nice clean look to it. If I were to give recommendations for improvement, it would be to solve the squeak and provide just a bit more room to occasionally fan out my toes.

Admin 5 Dec 2017

Hi Mike,

We appreciate your review of the Black Eagle Safety 55 Side Zip. We are glad that the boots are comfortable and lightweight and that you like the look and feel of them.  We apologize about the squeaking issue with the boots, but I have passed along your concerns to the sales manager in your area and he should be following up with you about a possible warranty claim.  We hope this will not deter you from considering HAIX again in the future.

Durable boot

At first I was unsure about these boots. I had to order the extra wide boot because the cut around my big toe was tight and even with the extra wide it's still extremely close and after owning them for about six months the laces are starting to fray. The break in time wasn't long and there are times that I may wear these boots up to 16 hours a day. Now here is what impressed me. We spent three days executing a structural collapse exercise and these boots were put through everything. After three days plus the weeks prior associated with prep time the boots looks rough. I rinsed off the dust and dirt then added a coat of wax. There was no damage to the boots. The toe guard did its job where those who had other boots the toe of the boot had deep cuts. If they would widen out the toe area and have some better laces I would give them a 10.

Hi Ryan,

Thank you for sharing your experience with the Black Eagle Safety 55 Mid Side Zip.  We are glad that you decided to give HAIX a try and that there was minimal break-in time on the boots.  We are also happy to hear that these boots served you so well during your training exercise and they didn't suffer any damage.  We apologize that the laces have frayed after only 6 months, but I am certain that we came to a reasonable solution.  I will also pass your concerns about the width of the toe box to upper management for consideration. We hope this won't deter you from purchasing HAIX products again in the future.  Stay safe out there!

Love these boots, well worth the price! Have had my boots for several months they are comfortable and durable! Ive read where people have issues with the zipper, the zipper works just fine. I uave a bad ankle and these boots make my feet hurt less. after a 24 hour shift i dont limp around as bad with boots as I have with others! If and when these wear out I will be purchasing another pair!!

Not worth the price in my book

Very disappointed with my purchase the boots are OK but when I find out that I had to be for delivery on the $400 pair of boots I was a bit upset when you consider these these most companies ship for free over $25 purchase plus they tend to run bigger than the size, The right Toe cap seem a bit misplaced and it took long time for delivery from ups (the worst) so next time i will pass on haix!

Admin 2 Oct 2017

Hi Steve,

Thank you for your review of the Black Eagle Safety 55 Mid Side Zip.  We are sorry that you were disappointed with your purchase.  Many of our boots do run about a half size larger than a normal shoe.  If you ever have any questions about sizing, please feel free to reach out to our Customer Service Dept. or via the Live Chat feature in our webshop and they would be happy to help.  Unfortunately, we don't offer free shipping to Canada because of the high price of duties.  Orders shipped to Canada can require additional delivery time because of increased security measures at the border.  If you decide to give HAIX another try (which we certainly hope you will) you can always have your boots shipped to a friend in the U.S. so you can get free or discounted shipping when it is being offered.  Again, I apologize for the inconvenience and hope you will consider HAIX again in the future.

Not bad

Bought these about 6 weeks ago. I like how light and flexible they are. I also love the side zip and toe cap. Unfortunately I had to spend even more money to go back to the R8 because the way they are designed it is bruising my left heel badly.

Admin 1 Sep 2017
