Today's fire ground is not the same as those of the past. Lighter weight building materials makes for structures that can be more unstable and require quick changes in response. The new HAIX Fire Eagle® Air boots set the standard for the modern day firefighter. These lightweight structural bunker boots have an athletic fit and feel, yet offer the highest degree of protection when on the frontline of a firefight. HAIX Fire Eagle® Air boots will keep you lighter and quicker on your feet and more responsive to the fire. From the very first step in these HAIX Fire Eagle® Air lightweight firefighter boots, you will feel that rare combination of comfort and safety that is the hallmark of HAIX®.
Innovative Sole Design
The HAIX Fire Eagle® Air boots' innovative athletic sole is highly slip resistant whether on water, ice, or snow. The newly developed 2 component tread features additional grip elements that offer outstanding stability no matter what conditions you may encounter. Superior traction equals greater flexibility to react to the changing conditions of a fire.
The dual color sole offers superior shock absorption and phenomenal heat and cold insulation. The unique signal yellow color used in the sole gives you increased visibility when crawling, even in the smokiest conditions. You also have the added benefit of a built in boot jack at the back to make getting your HAIX fire boots off as easy as 1-2-3.
HAIX® Ankle Flex System for Feet and Ankle Support
Unlike other pull on bunker boots that can feel loose and sloppy over time, the Fire Eagle® Air includes the HAIX® developed Ankle Flex System which offers a phenomenal fit with quick in and out capabilities. The interior elastic components throughout the ankle area offers a snug fit that will support your feet and ankles, so no more worries of twisting your ankle when running with equipment or jumping off the fire truck. The Ankle Flex System enables the boot to adjust to different foot, ankle, and heel shapes for a more custom fit. The integrated flex zones that surround the ankle ensures you have flexibility and freedom of movement when kneeling or driving.
HAIX® Climate System and HAIX® Sun Reflect Leather
The HAIX Fire Eagle® Air boots are German Engineered and European made, built with only quality European bull leather, which is thicker and more durable. The bright yellow elements on the outside of the boot is the "light in the dark" for a firefighter. Not only does the yellow coloring make you more visible to your fellow firefighters, the yellow on the toe cap helps you to be able to see where you are placing your feet in a dark or smoky environment. And as always, these HAIX Fire Eagle® boots have Sun Reflect incorporated into the leather so that your HAIX structural boots and your feet stay cooler in bright sunlight.
CROSSTECH® and Secura Liner® Protected
Underneath the hydrophobic and breathable leather is a Crosstech inner liner is waterproof, and provides added protection from chemicals and bloodborne pathogens. Our unique HAIX® Secura Liner® feature will make sure you won't have the "liner pull out" you can experience with other fire boots. Nothing more frustrating than having your boot liner come out with your foot every time you take your boots off.

Exactly what I expected.
As instructed (by the excellent staff at Haix) I ordered a half size smaller than my usual athletic shoe size and straight out of the box the fit was perfect. The high quality is obvious and after a day or two of wear I forgot about my feet, which is exactly what I want when I am focussed on fire and rescue work. They may be expensive but they are superb and I would highly recommend.
First pair of Haix firefighting boots, the pricing always guided me to look for something else and cheaper. What a mistake. I have worn several styles of leather pull on boots, but so far, these are the best and well worth the cost.
My feet feel so much better
I moved to a significantly busier house a few months ago and it got to the point where my ill-fitting department issued rubbers were leaving my feet bleeding in multiple places after busy shifts. I’ve got narrow feet but with a very high arch so I was wary of getting narrow fit leathers since I read they fit tight across the top of the foot and I’ve had issues with that before. Ended up going a half size up to a 10M and sure enough they were tight across the top of my foot but my heels were still slipping. Rather than spend the money on shipping and switching back to my rubbers and inevitably destroying my feet while waiting for a narrower size to become available just to ship and try on, I took the insoles out of an old pair of EMS boots and put them in my new Eagle Airs.
They’re still just a little tight across the top but the difference is night and day. Everyone says Haix need broken in but after only wearing them for 3 shifts they’re already feeling like tennis shoes. Our last call yesterday was a solid fire and all I could think about while doing a search, overhaul, and then clean-up was how incredibly comfortable my feet were. I wish sizing were less of a headache but can’t really fault Haix for that. These boots are incredible and I’m just upset I didn’t get them sooner.
After owning my previous Haix firefighting boots for 13 years, it was time to order a new pair. The old pair had seen more excitement than a 12 year old full of candy. Like an old friend, the old boots had been with me for so long it was a comfort to have them with me where ever I went. Few firefighting boots feel like you’re slipping into a pair of well used and well loved slippers. The old Haix were exactly that. While tragic and heartbreaking to move in from them, it clearly was time for a new pair to take the place of the old. As I bid Verabschiedung to the old pair with a small tear in my eye, the new pair seem ready and willing to take up the mantle that the old pair had. I can only hope that I get as much use, as much happiness and as few blisters on my feet from these new boots as I did the old ones. As always, Haix makes a product that isn’t just equipment, it’s so comfortable and well made you can’t help but anthropomorphize them into a loyal friend.
Very nice boot
Just got the boots about a week ago and really like them so far. I was a little nervous ordering this expensive of a boot on line but their online sizing chart and explanation worked out great
These boots are very well made and feel good on my feet as compared to another leather boot and the rubber boots I’ve worn. Put them in service about 2 weeks ago and had a couple fires. They performed well. I got some paint on them during a fire and with a little effort the paint came off. I was relieved! The only complaint; there is a bit of material above my toes that had a crease which rubs on the tops of my toes. Not bad enough to send back but I do notice it. Maybe it will work it’s way out after use.
These are by far the most comfortable boots I have, they fit perfectly an have great support. I will be recommending haix boots to everyone I know and I will only buy them
I am blown away by these boots
The Eagle Airs are breaking in nicely, and the XR2 - it’s hard to believe these aren’t athletic shoes they’re so comfortable. I’m elated with my switch to Haix.
I was very excited to receive my HAIX Fire Eagle size 14 Medium in the mail. I was a little concerned they may be a little snug on the width but after wearing them once they fit perfectly!!! I'm 6'6" and weigh 300lbs and the boots provided all the support I need. They are extremely light as well. I have and will recommend HAIX boots.
Great boot I could of gone to a 10 1/2 but it fine with time they’ll fit just right. The boot features are awesome. Can’t wait to put them to work
Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback on the Fire Eagle Air. We are happy that you like the boot features and we hope they serve you well out on the job. As for the sizing, the boots due tend to run a little narrow for some people, especially on the top of the foot. If you ever have any questions about sizing, please reach out to our Customer Service Dept. via phone or live chat and we'll be happy to assist you. We appreciate your business and hope you will remain a HAIX customer in the future!
This is one of the most comfortable straight out of the box boots I have ever wore. The only reason its not a 10 is because they rub slightly on the front shin. I think that Will get better with use. Over all its a great boot and I will purchase more in the future!
Thank you for sharing your experience with the Fire Eagle Air. We are pleased to hear that you found these boots to be comfortable right out of the box. Sorry to hear that this boot is rubbing you across the shin, it may just need further break-in and should loosen up over time. We appreciate your loyalty to HAIX and hope these boots continue to serve you well in the future.
