Engineered to meet your exacting demands

Depend on your Combat Hero to get you through no matter how difficult the road may be.

Designed to meet the requirements of AR 670-1

Combat Hero is constructed with high quality European rough out leather with textile inserts to provide you with a breathable piece of foot gear that will keep you comfortable all day long. These coyote color boots have what it takes from top to bottom.

Keep your footing with our anti-slip sole

Combat Hero provides you with the foot support you need while on long rucks lugging gear across rugged terrain. The rubber tread is tough enough for any terrain while the EVA midsole provides you with the comfort of not feeling every rock and stone on a long hike.

Supportive cushioning with HAIX Absorption

Combat Hero will keep you feeling comfortable even when you are on the move all day. The built in cushioning in the sole acts as your own personal shock absorption, effectively cushioning each step and helps reduce foot and leg fatigue. Less break in time too.

Make it easier on yourself with the Combat Hero Lacing

The Low friction loops on the Combat Hero permits the laces to move smoothly and freely without wearing down the laces prematurely. The non-reflective hardware helps to keep you hidden when stealth is important too, and the large pull on strap at the back helps you pop your boots on with ease.

Extended comfort mile after mile

Rucking can be brutal, especially for your feet, Combat Hero keeps you going.

Breathable comfort with our Climate System

The Combat Hero 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 fabric mesh at the top of the boot. The Climate System essentially works likes an air conditioning system in your boot.

Optimal support thanks to 2 zone lacing

The Combat Hero adapts perfectly to your foot. Independently adjust the upper and lower part of your boot just the way you like it for a comfort fit tailored just to you. You like it tight across the foot, but looser on the leg? You can do that. Like it tighter across the ankle for more ankle support? You can do that too. Lace locks also keeps your lacing in position.

Comfort fit with our cushioned insole

HAIX insoles keep your feet and your shoes 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 shoes fresh and comfortable.

Extra comfort and security from the padded tongue

The Combat Hero's padded tongue provides that extra bit of cushioning between you and your lacing while also providing a snugger fit across the instep. It also keeps your foot correctly positioned in the boot and prevents heel slippage which can lead to blisters that no one ever needs to deal with during their day.

Top Notch Comfort!!!

Straight out of the box to my feet for an extensive work out over two solid weeks. No time to break them in...no issues. Comfortable, rugged and easy to wear. WOULD definitely purchase again.



Combat hero

I have every name brand boot to date and I have never taken the time to write a review so this is my first and for good reason. These are the absolute best boots I have ever owned. The comfort and support they provide is incredible and my feet never get too hot or too cold which is unheard of with such a breathable boot. I bought them for military use but I find myself wearing them for many other activities. I would recommend and have been to anyone in my fields.

Solid Ankle Support

The HAIX Combat Hero is a rugged, comfortable, and supportive boot. The shaft has structure that provides ankle support unlike other brands that just have floppy fabric in the shaft. Great boots, highly recommended !

Deployment approved, Amazing boots

When I first tried these on I thought, "wow there is almost TOO much ankle support." Now the ankle problems I use to have are a thing of the past. Rucked, deployed to Afghanistan, and put thousands of miles on them. Where other boots leave my feet feeling fatigued at the end of the day, these boots had my feet feeling fine. As far as AR-670-1, I have not had a single person say anything to me about them. They are starting to get pretty worn out and I should probably get another pair soon, but these just seem even more broken in and comfortable now. Just boots for the field now!

Quality boot

Quality boot but very stiff to break in, also seems to fit a bit larger then other Haix boots I've ordered.



Great boots

The boots are amazing. You can feel airflow through them; arch support is comfortable. Would have rated perfect, but the box didn't come with spare laces. Given the price of the boot, they could at least supply spare laces designed for the boot. You never know when your laces are going break plus finding spare laces with a matching colour is not easy since they don't even supply a colour code or anything about the laces. Also, the laces are way too long. There's about 2 feet of lace on each side after tightening the boots. In a way, you're forced to buy your own laces for these boots, whether you need spares or ones that aren't ridiculously long.



Great boots

Bought these boots after some research of hardcore hiking/expedition boots, not disappointed with the results. Takes a couple weeks to truly break in but comfortable from the get go, these are the best feeling mil boots I've had/ they feel &fit like high end hiking/all weather boots capable of long term expeditions. Their look is great and sole is awesome as it doesn't allow rocks and such to affect your feet. Will buy again and especially if they offer reg cold weather boots



Best boots yet


Moderator: please consider replacing my earlier review of these boots with this one.

I bought two pairs of these in July 2020. The ones I'm wearing now have over 400 miles on them, about one third of that on fairly steep mountain trails.

Here's what best about them:

1 - traction: whether on dry shale or snow covered grass, you've got grip.

2 - weight/comfort: they weigh next to nothing, they fit (but see below), and the height is right for me.

3 - solid arch support: you can't sneak around in these because the soles are so stiff, but your feet don't
bleed or ache after a long hike - and that's a trade-off I'm happy with.

Weirdly the single thing I like best about them is the two part lacing system. Take them off right and you can be outside, boots on, 30 seconds from bed. It looks flaky and the speed doesn't really matter for me, but it's nice and works.

There are two things to worry about with them:

1 - they sponge up water like a paper diaper. Heavy dew = wet feet.

Two cans of silicon spray later, however, and they look darker but
my feet are warm and dry after 45 minutes pushing a snowblower
through heavy wet snow just now.

2 - the right size is too big?

My normal size is 13W (Cross-trainers are 14EEEE) but I found that these, while very comfortable under
normal conditions, let my feet slide forward in the boot a bit on steep downhills - I lost both big toenails to this after a 2,300 foot descent in July. My 13M pair, on the other hand, seemed a little tight to begin with but now fit like I've worn them forever - and allow no internal slippage.

Best boots yet

New boots on a long hike usually mean bleeding feet but these didn't - maybe not really AR-670? They fit, they're extraordinarily light. and the traction is incredible. My get acquainted hike started in mud and ended on high dry rock with wet rocks and scree in between with no slippage anywhere.

I'm probably buying a spare pair for five years from now.

Great boots

Best Army boots I have tried out so far.
I wear a 9.0 Wide in standard issue and Belleville boots and initially ordered the HAIX too small. Returning them and reordering was no issue. 10.5W fits me, so order at least a size bigger than your BCT boots.



Great pair of boots

They are comfortable seem to be quite rugged yet lightweight overall a great product that I feel like will last a couple of years Time will tell. besides the comfort my favorite feature is the two zone lacing



Worth the money

First time opening the box i knew these were going to be good. I put them on tied them up went walking on a little hike and wow i was impressed. They fit very well with lots of room for those who have wide feet like myself.

They are princely you know these boots are quality by how they fit on comfortably and feel. Everyone avid outdoors person needs a pair boots like these.



Good boot, but pricey

I got these today…finally…and am wearing them around the house tonight. The only other pair of HAIX boots I have are the GSG-9 boots that I bought a couple of years ago. They have been a good boot; one, in fact, that I wear when I need dressier footwear and boots are all that I have. For a German made boot, your sizing is correct for the US market and I was a surprised when I got the GSG-9 and my US sizing, which I selected when ordering, was correct (I usually have to go by UK sizing for European made footwear).

So, based on that experience, I ordered these Hero boots in my US size and they are fitting well, especially in the toe box. For this type of boot, they look and feel like they will work out well. I pretty much gave up on other boots of this type (except the one pair of Meindl's I have, which I don’t currently wear), so the HAIX is a welcome addition. I will be curious to see other reviews when they start coming in as this is a somewhat high priced boot for a combat/tactical boot marketed to the military. Too soon to advise on long term wear, but they are more promising than others I have had (except maybe the Mendls, once I got their sizing correct...the UK thing, you know...).
