Maximum protection certified for EMS
Your health is priority. The Black Eagle Safety 55 Mid Side Zip offers all-around protection for your feet, because it is puncture resistant, protects your toes, and protects you from some of the dangerous fluids you come in contact with on the job. It is a certified EMS boot ready for service.
Protect your toes with our composite toe cap
The integrity of your feet, and especially your toes, is important. The Black Eagle Safety 55 Mid Side Zip 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 Black Eagle Safety 55 Mid Side Zip'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 Black Eagle Safety 55 Mid Side Zip 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 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.
Extra support for your feet with the HAIX® Arch Support System
You can perform your job duties better and with more stability with the Black Eagle Safety 55 Mid Side Zip. 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.
Ready to go with the HAIX® Side Zipper
Enjoy the quick convenience of the side zipper on the Black Eagle Safety 55 Mid Side Zip. Get a more peronalized fit by adjusting the lacing, fix it and then forget it. Enjoy that fit all day, every day. Slip on, zip up, and go.
Breathable comfort with HAIX® Climate System
The Black Eagle Safety 55 Mid Side Zip 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.
This is my second pair of these great boots. First pair after four years of twice daily horse feeding began to fail at sole/upper join. No leaks however! For my foot, the side zip is OK only with the use of elastic laces. With them, easy on/off and a snug fit. Composite toe good for horse missteps.Read more
This is my second pair of boot I have ordered from Haix. The first ones were the Airpower and they lasted me almost 5 years, the only reason I did not get thos again is because I did not care for the front zip. So far these boots have not disappointed me, they are light, waterproof and most of all comfortable. These are comfortable enough where I do not rush to get out of them as soon as I can and carry wear them for 18 hours during my shift and not hate them. I would recommend these to anyone.Read more
Excellent Boot, Excellent Service
Like many, I have spent thousands on boots over the years and barely was able to get a single season out of them. The HAIX boot is in its own league. Great fit, and working with HAIX was simple and straightforward. They’ve already been put to the test and surpassed even my high expectations. They are pricey but they are incredibly well made and will outlast anything Ive tried before. My next pair will be a winter boot, and it’s coming from HAIX for sure.Read more
Great boot for the money. Awesome quality and comfortable. Use daily for EMS and station wear. Solid boot great job HAIX!!!Read more
Beautifull & awesome boots
So these are very good looking boots. They are not the typical big bulky work boots. They are very sleek design you can wear them and not look like you just came off a construction site. Besides that they are extremely comfortable out of the box and the zipper part makes it easy to take them off or on. Very good protection all the way around but yet still looks like a designer footwear. The only issue is that they are narrow. I have wide feet and had to order the extra wide ones to fit perfect. Also like all HAIX boots they run large so order a half to one size smaller than usually. Highly recommended just get one size smaller and one size wider and you will love these boots. Extremely high quality inside and out. 6 stars out of 5 !!!Read more
Really Good Boots and comfortable!
I only buy Haix boots, after wearing out a pair of the R series boots, decided to try a side zip to see if I liked them. All and all they are greatly comfortable! I have plantar fasciitis and these boots work great, but so did my R1s. Easy to get off but no so easy to get on. Don't have a problem kicking them off to get in turnout gear but putting them on I have to use both the straps to get them on. Fit is right and true to size. My opinion if you are a firefighter and have to keep getting in and out of your station boots, go with the R or XR front zip boots. If you are running a lot of EMS calls and don't come out of them a lot, these boots are a little better and easier to clean under the laces than the front zip boots.Read more
I'm impressed with the quality of the boots. The height is shorter than I'm used to, but I am getting used to them. The size 16 fit me perfectly. Excellent communication, excellent options and lots of paperwork included that explains all the features. I won't look anywhere else for boots now.Read more
Too tight, never broken in
These boots look great, but I had to order one size smaller than my normal size. I wore them around the station for a couple of days to ensure they’d fit well, which I thought they would after breaking in. After two months they’re still to tight in the toe box (even with the extra side) and the soles get more uncomfortable each day. Wish I hadn’t gotten rid of the box! My feet have been hurting so badly after shift that I’ve literally stopped wearing them. Ended up being a waste of a lot of money and a hard learned lesson.Read more
These are the boots provided to us at our EMS company. I love them. My only complaint is there is a slight squeak. They do run about half a size big.Read more
Have worn these boots for about a few weeks now. They are considerably lighter than other boots I’ve worn. They seem clunky though. They are a comfortable boot but they have a very bad squeak to them. Not sure if they aren’t broken in quite yet or if it’s the boot itself. I’ve had the AirPower R2s in the past and those squeaked pretty bad. They fit differently than other Haix boots. By that I mean these run a little bigger than say the R2s and R1s I’ve previously had. Got these in a 13 which is what I wore in other Haix boots but a 13 in these my foot slides around. Maybe I got the boot a half size smaller and the squeak wasn’t there it would go from a decent boot to a great boot.Read more
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.
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 awesomeRead more
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!!!!!!!!!Read more
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!Read more
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.Read more

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.Read more
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.Read more
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!!Read more
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!Read more
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.Read more
