Black Eagle Tactical 2.1 GTX Low


 What size should I order?


We've made some upgrades to our Black Eagle® Tactical Low that we are sure you're going to like! We switched out our traditional fast lacing laces with bungee laces that are expandable and won't slip in the lock clip. It lets you slip in and out of your shoe without adjustment. Quick in and quick out, no fuss. We also changed the lace pocket to a fabric pouch that keeps your laces tightly tucked away with a more streamlined look. Tuck the laces in, and forget it. The Black Eagle® line is designed to meet your needs on duty and off. Combining running shoe technology with innovative functionality, Black Eagle® footwear offers the lightest weight options we’ve ever had.  Made to be worn inside or out, the Black Eagle® Tactical 2.1 GTX Low is built for comfort and incorporates many unique features you didn’t even know you needed. GORE-TEX® Laminate with Sun Reflect Black Eagle® Tactical 2.1 GTX Low features a lightweight, all leather design and a GORE-TEX® inner liner which makes it durably waterproof. Your feet will stay comfortable indoors and out, in wet or dry conditions. The European leather is breathable and features HAIX® Sun Reflect that keeps sun and it’s resulting heat at bay, keeping your feet about 20% cooler than other black leather boots. NEW Smart Lacing System for Quick In and Out The newer smart lacing system with bungee lacing lets you get in and out without ever again having to tie laces. The expandable bungee laces allow you to slip your feet in and out of your shoes without having to make adjustments, and certainly without the need to tie and untie laces. The smart lacing mechanism locks your laces in place and any extra lacing tucks into the handy lace pocket for a streamlined look. No more tripping or stopping because your laces came untied. Slip Resistant Soles and Cushioned Insoles The Black Eagle® sole is comprised of a unique rubber compound and tread profiling that offers exceptional grip on a variety of different surfaces and long-lasting durability. Add to that the soles are fuel, oil and heat resistant, heat and cold insulating, and non-marking and you have a low profile athletic shoe that will carry you through any circumstance. The tread is also self-cleaning; releasing caked on dirt and mud when you walk. The machine washable insoles offer cushioned comfort and wick moisture to keep your feet drier even on busy workdays. Extended One-Year Warranty The optional add-on Black Eagle® Extended Limited Warranty makes choosing Black Eagle® Tactical 2.1 GTX Low almost a no brainer. After trying Black Eagles, HAIX® may just be the last brand you’ll ever buy. Waterproof/breathable with GORE-TEX® Extended Stone shield prevents uneven surfaces from pressing through to the foot Cushiony, moisture-wicking insole with “AIRFLOW” channels Pronation support to prevent arch collapsing inward Supination support with spring back energy return Asymmetrical TPU for stabilizing the heel Cushioning in the heel area for shock absorption Smart lacing system Bungee laces Metal free Anti-static Durable anti-slip sole resistant to oil and gasoline, non-marking Optional Black Eagle® Extended Warranty: Opt to extend the HAIX® one year limited warranty for one additional year by filling out this online form Learn more about HAIX® footwear technology.

All day comfort and athletic feel

Breathable comfort with our Climate System

The Black Eagle Tactical 2.1 GTX Low allows your foot to breathe by absorbing moisture into specialized foams between the inner lining and the leather. With every step, moist air expels, and fresh air comes in through the fabric mesh at the top of the shoe. The Climate System essentially works like an air conditioning system in your boot.

These are great shoes and I have no regrets about buying them. They’re not as comfortable as I had hoped as they are a little hard feeling in the sole but I love them and the quality they are.

Good shoe, but

The shoe itself is great, comfortable from day 1, anti-slip sole works well, looks good, keeps water out as well as you can expect low top shoes to, but there is a design defect where the bungee laces can rub against the edges of the shoe and eventually cut themselves. Luckily normal shoelaces will still fit in the eyelets.


Solid Shoe

The Black Eagle Tactical 2.0 Low shoes are very comfortable, and they fit true to size. The reason that I didn't give it a 10 is because after being on my feet for several hours, my feet are exhausted. That is probably due to my age, but I have other shoes that provide more long-term daily comfort than these. However, I am still very pleased with my purchase.



The Best

Great shoe. Gore Tex really makes a difference you can feel. All conditions gear made for working on your feet. You can feel the quality. These were comfortable right out of the box. Great value for the money. Couldn't love them any more - they even look good but work even better. Happy I found this company - they obviously care about the product and their customers.


The Best

Love these shoes. I've been wearing Keen for the past few years- but their "Keen dry" waterproofing doesn't compare to Gore Tex. You can really feel the difference with the Gore Tex you can feel the ventillation. I can wear these all day and night and I'm always comfortable indoors and out. Speed laces took some getting used to but work great. Bought a 2nd pair of these so I can alternate and wear them every day. Great value for the money. I have a German Shepherd that I walk every day rain or shine and these shoes feel like they're up to the challenge. Leather is nice, build quality seems very nice - lots of attention to detail. Soles look like they will also last. I'm happy I found this company. Best shoes I've worn since back when Birkenstock used to make the Jasper hiking shoe which they don't make anymore.



HAIX Black Eagle Tactical 2.1 GTX Low

These shoes are very comfortable. After reading the reviews I ordered a Wide size as suggested and it is a perfect fit. This is the third pair that I have ordered over 20 years. I've worn other brands in between and always come back to Haix shoes. As other reviews noted the laces take some time to adjust and get used to. I have only been wearing these a couple of weeks but I may replace the laces with a traditional style.



Wide is not Wide

I love the shoes and this is my 4th pair. I had to buy shoes stretchers because the "wide" is not wide (at all). I've been buying my own shoes for over 35 years and this is the only shoe brand that I've used that doesn't fit in the width. You have to leave them in the shoe stretchers for a couple weeks to get the leather to the proper size.



Great police shoe

This is my second pair of these shoes. The first, I bought 3 years ago. I used a different pair of shoes in between and will probably only buy Hair from now on. They're light and athletic, yet water proof and durable. For me, they're an ideal spring, summer, fall patrol shoe.
The only knock is I agree the lacing system is a bit tricky to get it snug enough that your foot won't fall out without over tightening. With a little guess and check I was able to get them perfect.



Very Comfortable

Love these shoes. I've been in public safety for 34 years. I am currently a school resource officer and also work part time as a paramedic. I have nerve damage to my feet form all the years working on them. These shoes feel great on my feet.

Issues with elastic laces

These shoes are extremely comfortable! The only problem I have is with the lacing system. When I have to takeoff running my heel slips out of the shoe. It didn’t seem to matter how tight I got the laces. I am planning on replacing the laces with traditional shoelaces. Other than that, a great shoe.

K. S.


great shoe

Fit was sung for my wide foot but was very comfortable about an hour into walking in them. I'm a large frame person and this shoe really gives me the stability I was looking for.

Anthony S M.


Great work shoe

As a UPS delivery driver I walk on various surfaces all day every day. Since wearing these shoes I’ve not slipped or slid on anything. This alone makes them the best work shoe I’ve owned. Add in the smart laces and comfort and support , I’ll recommend these to all of my coworkers



Comfortable Tac Shoes

I received my HAIX Black Eagle Tactical 2.0 GTX Low. I am very impressed with the comfort of the shoes as well as the HAIX boots that I have. You will not be disappointed!

Major Frank N.



I was excited to out these on my feet. So disappointed when I slid my foot in and the shoe was way too narrow. No wide widths in this style The return process was easy and I plan on trying another type boot.



New Midsole is not good

The new croatian"two layer midsole" is not as good as the former chinese "Energy return system + Ground impact Cushioning" midsole. The original version is like a pair of running shoes, the new model is like a concrete shoes. I will change the insoles and hope that they will get more comfortable. I´m really disappointed with the purchase of these 2.0. The width, leather, and lace system are great.

Oscar F.


Not the same as the old Eagle Tacticals.

Unfortunately these are not the same as the older version. Much harder feel, narrower toe box than the previous version. The older version felt like a sneaker. The newer version feels more like every one else's boot, it does have great support without the same cushioning. The upper looks great.

Unfortunately I purchased 3 pairs: 1 Eagle Athletic GTX 2.0 Low, 1 Eagle Tactical GTX 2.0 Low, and 1 Eagle Tactical GTX 2.0 Mid. I have only worn the Eagle Tactical GTX 2.0 Low and have tried them for a month hoping they would stretch but I come home from work with my left foot in pain daily.

Haix Black Eagle Tacticsl 2.0 GTX

I have been a loyal Haix customer for about 4 or 5 years. I first bought the Black Eagle Tactical low shoe after I tried them on and it felt like I was walking on air. It took 15 seconds and I was sold. Since then I have bought 4 pairs. I like the fact that they are warrantied. I even got a new pair because on shoe was loose. The first pair I bought from a uniform store after that I bought directly from Haix. Recently I purchased a pair of the new 2.0 GTX . I was excited to get them. I have been wearing them for a week and I have to say I am disappointed. Although I don't have a wide foot, the new shoes don't feel wide enough. Also they don't have that walking on air feeling that the original Black Eagle had. It feels like I'm walking on concrete without shoes. Also my feet burn in them. Unfortunately I have to return them because they hurt my feet. I am going to order the original Black Eagle Low Tactical. I still love the Haix company but they made the new shoe too stiff. This is my opinion. Someone else could love the new shoe



HAIX Tactical Eagle

Yes, a wide width would be preferable to me as well. Because you do not have a wide width, I need to order an extra size shoe. Outside of that, I love the shoe. It is comfortable, has great support, keeps my feet cool and at the end of the day, I don't want to take them off. With my previous duty shoes before I got HAIX, I could not wait to get them off. These are great!

Michael H.


No wide widths

Still disappointed this line of shoe/boot has no wide width. I have a pair of the Blackhawk safty toe ones and they are great but I get flak for the non polishable toe guard.

I am sure these are every bit as comfortable as the safety toe variant but the lack of wide widths means people like me can't wear them. Please make wide widths available.
