No matter what the emergency, Fire Flash Xtreme has you covered. NFPA quad-certified, Fire Flash Xtreme is a Structural, Wildland, HAZMAT, USAR boot.

Fire Flash Xtreme is a great alternative for those hard to fit guys who have trouble stepping into pull on bunker boots. These boots can accommodate wider calves and/or ankles with its adjustable built in lacing system. With the easy run lace/zip system, you can be assured that you can step quickly in and out, especially with the added pull tab at the back. Have a prior ankle of foot injury that needs extra support? Fire Flash is the perfect choice since you can adjust each boot individually for a custom fit; cinch lacing tighter for additional support. With the HAIX® Lacing System you can adjust your boots easily and quickly - similar to a zipper boot with the fit of a lace up type of footwear. Flex zone construction around the tongue ensures you will still have the flexibility to perform the job at hand.

The Fire Flash Xtreme offers European craftsmanship and HAIX® technological designs and specialized materials, which keep your feet dry and protected from blood borne pathogens, chemicals, and more. Lots of flexibility in the ankles and secure hold in the heels means your feet can get where they need to go without straining your foot muscles or suffering ankle roll. The HAIX® Secura Liner keeps your boot lining in place. It will not wrinkle or pull out of your boots. It is permanently affixed and designed for maximum comfort and airflow.

Upper Material To Make a Firefighter and EMS Responder Proud

First responders will be proud to wear these boots which are constructed of quality, solid leather. The leather is waterproof and comes with Sun Reflect technology to keep the sun on the outside of the boot rather than warming feet on the inside. Para-aramid cut protection provides an added level of protection to feet on duty. A steel protective toe cap with exterior profiled rubber toe cap not only keeps your feet safe and protected but keeps your boots looking great. It also provides abrasion resistance when crawling.

Insole, Lining and Footbed With CROSSTECH®

CROSSTECH® liner keeps your feet dry and comfortable. It also provides chemical protection and blood borne pathogen resistance. Absorbent insoles makes the footbed drier and more comfortable. They are washable and replaceable.

Sole For the Firefighter

The HAIX® MSL System (Micro Soft Light) designed sole offers a PU foam injection throughout the sole for maximum comfort and great shock absorption. The MSL System is also excellent at insulating feet from the heat or cold. The steel puncture protective sole contains a flexible, stainless steel layer to keep feet safe from sharp objects while still allowing some freedom of movement when driving a truck or performing your duties. The outer sole is made from heat resistant rubber which is also slip resistant. A ladder shank on the inside gives extra support on ladder rungs; an important feature you will love to have if spend any period of time standing on a ladder rung.

Ok... as I titled, these are bombproof. Solid boot. I’ve worn many pair of Haix for structural firefighting, EMS, SAR and all I’ve owned have stood up like no other. I still have my first pair of fire flash extremes. Now, I do have to mirror what so many others have said, the laces don’t last due to the lacing system but with a call to customer svc new laces get sent out promptly. Like other pairs, the zipper pulls also have a tendency to fail but again, a call to customer service takes care of that problem as well. Those are my issues but because Haix stands by their product like a real company should the issue is just a slight inconvenience and not a deterrent. I wear these daily as a tech rescue boot. I have replaced the insole with a thicker gel insert due to some heel issues I have. All in all, I still give 10/10 and Haix will be my go-to now and for years to come. Thanks for making awesome boots.

Constant shoe lace break

Great boot except for constant shoe lace breaks. Had 20 breaks over the course of a year

Great Boots

Been using Haix Fire Flash boots since 2003, we needed a more versatile and comfortable boot as we do a fair bit of wildland as well as structural firefighting in Rural western Canada. Luckily we chose the fire flash boots for their versatility. Comfort right out of the box and adjustability with the lacing system, yes broken laces and zippers amongst a couple of the crew, but mostly due to rushing to pull them up or pulling them too tight. I had mine for almost 10 years before discovering a small leak during a spring flood. They were so worn in they flopped over instead of standing up. Never had a liner pull out. A common issue with other boots I guess. Great Boots, read the manual and take care of them and your feet will thank you. Test running the XR-1's as our new station and wildland boot. Impressed so far.

Simply the best pair of boots I have ever owned!

I have had a pair of HAIX fire flashX for a number of years. They are simply the best boots your money can buy! I use them most for challenging and difficult chain saw work and any work outside where boot safety is a must. I will never purchase another pair of boots of any kind unless they come from HAIX. HAIX builds the finest saftey boots in the world.....hands down!

Easily the best pair of boots I've owned since working in the oilfield

Nice comfortable fit, only took 3 days to break them in. Take care of them and they'll take care of you.

Best structural boots I've ever owned

This is my second pair of Fire Flash boots I've had now, my first pair held up for years, and this pair I have now for roughly a year. They've been to multiple incidents and still look brand new and they only get better the more they are broken in. The competitors do not compare, Haix will be my choice boot for the remainder of my career.

Wonderful boots

I've had these boots for 9 months now, I wear them on shift as station boots and wildland boots on 48 hour shifts, very comfortable after broken in. my only complaint is the laces seem to wear pretty quick and takes a fair amount longer to lace up than your tradition front zip forward facing eyelet configuration(if anyone has found any great lacing techniques for these i'm all ears), I'm on my 2nd pair of laces in 9 months. Other than that these are excellent for everyday use.

Admin 17 May 2017

Hi Bob,

Thank you for taking the time to review the Fire Flash Xtreme boots.  We are happy to hear that they are comfortable as station and wildland boots even on long shifts.  Sorry you are having such a problem with the laces but after reaching out to you, I am confident that we found a resolution to the problem.  We hope you will continue to be a loyal HAIX customer in the future.

One Tough Boot!

I wear this boot for industrial fire and every day all season industrial environment. During the course of my day the boot is exposed to acids, bases, other chemicals, water, salt etc.,. By far the best boot I have ever had. If I had one suggestion would be to make this boot available with the ice grip ?

Admin 21 Feb 2017

Hi Brad,

We appreciate your review of the Fire Flash Xtreme.  We are happy to hear that the boots have served you well while on industrial fire duty.  As far as the ice grip, I will definitely pass your suggestion up the chain of command for consideration.  Stay safe out there!

Great boots

Very comfortable, sturdy, strong zipper and they look wonderful after a shine. Only rating it an 8 because a shoelace broke after working a 300 acre wildland fire, but overall a great pair of boots.

Admin 27 Dec 2016

We appreciate you sharing your experience with us.  Good to know that the boots have served you well so far.  Sorry that the lace broke while you were out on duty.  Hopefully you were able to get it fixed and get back on the job.  Thanks again!

One of the best boots I've dowrn

My department bought the Fire flash Extreme for USAR use. After an initial break in period they were some of the most comfortable boots I've worn. 8-10 hours in the field and my feet felt great. The boots breathed well and the 10" height gave me great support. Very durable boots, just wash them off and they are ready to go again.!

Needs side straps

I had a set of the old fire flash boots and absolutely loved them. The only thing is that I wish they had the straps like the pull on boots but other than that they are good boots and a strap for the zipper to pull up.

Haix Fire Flash Xtreme Boots

Please accept this email as a testimonial from me regarding the fit, quality, & comfort of my new Haix Fire Flash Xtreme Boots. When I first started in the volunteer fire service, I wore the rubber bunker boots that were issued to me. They were heavy, hot, & uncomfortable. Not long afterwards, I discovered that leather firefighting boots were lighter, fit better, and out performed rubber boots by far. I‘ve owned different brands of leather lace up, pull on, & zip up firefighting boots. None have come close to the fit, quality, & comfort of the Haix Fire Flash Xtreme boots I recently purchased. Their TRE Fast Fix lacing system allows for a truly custom-fit boot which I‘ve found is difficult to obtain for firefighters, like me, who have short, wide feet and large calves. In my opinion, the Haix Fire Flash Xtreme is simply the best leather zip-up structural firefighting boot available on the market today.

The fit is so good it feels like my running shoes

I have been wearing Haix firefighting boots for at least 8 years, and I don't want to think about what fighting fire without them was like before then. I have 2 pair of Fire Flash zip ups and one other pair that needs to be sent in to be reconditioned. It is not uncommon for our crew to go to the tower weekly for functional firefighting training and PT. and we do PT IN FULL GEAR. There is absolutely no slip on my heels when doing mountain climbers, jumping jacks, and even burpees. I can't imagine going to vent an icy roof or climbing on a stiff pitch without them. The fit is so good it feels like my running shoes. I do recommend the 10" leg height . ( I was wearing the 8" when bailing out a window when pant leg pulled up and was burned just above the boot).
