If you make a living working with a chainsaw, you want to control your risk and protect your safety. While protection and safety should be at the top of your list when choosing chainsaw protective footwear, you also need to have leather logger forestry boots that will be functional so that you can do the job at hand.
European Cut Protection and Added Visibility
Whether you work at heights or on the ground, the HAIX Protector Ultra Lime Green logger boots provide both maximum comfort and a higher level of cut protection. Offering European Class 2 (24m/s) cut protection, the HAIX Protector Ultra Lime Green are impressively stable and surprisingly lightweight steel toe boots. The lime green color of these leather logger forestry boots gives you a higher degree of visibility and a better sense of where your foot is in relation to the chainsaw. Combine the lime green color with the silver reflective elements at the side and back of the boot, and you get a visibility boost day or night.
Soft-fitting Sleeve to Keep Debris Out and Two-Zone Lacing with Roller Ball Eyelets
The HAIX Protector Ultra Lime Green is designed with an attention to even the smallest detail. These suede leather logger forestry boots are built with minimal seaming and double stitched in order to reduce the possibility of seam failure out on a job. A soft, close fitting sleeve in the boot and the combination of leather and suede on the tongue allows for a closer fit that will prevent wood chips and debris from getting into your boot. In addition, the two zone lacing permits independent lacing of the upper and lower part of the boot in order to provide a fit tailored to your individual preferences. Pair the lacing with roller ball style eyelets and lacing becomes a breeze.
GORE-TEX® Inner Liner and HAIX® Climate System
The breathable European sourced leather, combined with a waterproof GORE-TEX® inner lining, ensure your feet stay dry and comfortable all day out in the field. The built in Climate System carries moist air out of the boot through vent holes at the side and on the tongue. The Climate System helps your feet maintain a comfortable temperature whether working in cold or warm weather. HAIX® recommends a good wool blend sock as a wool blend is better able to work in conjunction with the climate system, wicking away moisture and keeping your feet drier. And the adjustable lacing allows you the ability to be flexible in your choice of socks, whether it be a thicker sock for cold conditions or a thinner sock for warm conditions.
Ankle Support and Vibram® Soles
The HAIX Protector Ultra Lime Green is built to orthopedic criteria and helps to promote foot health. Built in ankle protection and support keeps your delicate ankle area safe and secure; so important in preventing ankle injuries. The Vibram® hiking sole gives you extra grip and slip resistance to keep you on your feet even in colder temperatures.

The best Arborist boot so far
5 pairs over 6 years fore and my crew and they are just the best. Waterproof, somewhat cool in hot summer on asphalt, pretty warm in winter in deep snow, comfortable in hooks, excellent grip for trimming sessions. Love them and so do my guys!
Haix defender boots
Very impressed with the quality of materials these boots are made of, extremely comfortable considering your ankle is almost in a fixed position due to the rigidity of the boot. I feel confident they will perform as needed in the long term. Climbing spurs fit nice around them and are barely noticeable while wearing them, as opposed to wearing conventional work boots. I feel I have got my money’s worth thus far, very happy
Best Chainsaw Loggers Boots!
If you are serious about chainsaw safety, then good boots are a must ~ The Haix Protector Ultra’s are the BEST! With 45 years experience these are by far the most comfortable chainsaw boots I’ve ever used. Safety is a priority, but comfort is essential to being productive. The support, fit, lacing features, padding, lugged sole, they all add up to a winning combination. I went with the wide version and 1/2 size larger than normal when using them with thick wool socks for cold weather cutting. Regardless I like the wide for any season.
Best Boots I've Owned in 30 Yrs
I have owned many different work boots and without a doubt the HAIX Protector Ultra Lime Green boots are the most outstanding work Boot I have owned in over 30 Yrs in construction/rope access work. As I work in a high angle rope access environment, the stability and comfort is amazing and they can withstand the punishment. My #1 boot of choice.
I have been wearing the same pair of these boots now for about 3 years. I work in the the power line industry. These boots are great for climbing, very comfortable and give great support to my feet. As mentioned in other reviews, I am wearing a half size smaller then I would normally wear. I have a couple of other pairs of boots as well and every so often I’ll wear one of them for a day and none of them come close in comfort to my Haix. I would definitely buy another pair but right now the ones I have look like they have a couple more years left in them. There is a higher cost at the beginning but these things really last. Even the laces are still the ones that came with the boots. Well worth the money.
Awesome Boots, Weird sizkng
I really enjoy these boots, the comfort and features are well thought out, the sizing though…. now that is a different story. I wear a 12 in every piece of footwear I own, not Haix….. they recommend a 1/2 size smaller, I could go a full size maybe size and a half DOWN and still fit nicely.
Great climbing boots
Ive only spent about 10 hours of climbing in these but so far so good! Nice and stiff for hooks. I wear a 10.5 street shoe, ordered a 10 and they fit perfect, only problem i had was getting them tight as i like my boots but im sure that problem will solve its self as the boots break in. Overall fantastic boot
My feet never been happier in boots. I’ve climbed in the rain, snow, and sunshine so far, and they’re holding up quite well.
HAIX Protector Ultra Lime Green
I’ve always had a hard time finding boots that fit me. I normally wear a 4e wide boot and I’m flat footed . I ordered the wide version. Fit is great and very comfortable.
So far so good.
I like them so far, wearing them every day to fall, limb, & buck trees. Fortunately I have not tested their effectiveness against a chainsaw. I have spilled bar oil and saw gas on them multiple times and doesn't seem to affect them. It hurts a bit about midfoot on the outside of my right foot, but maybe will go away once they have been worn longer. Thanks.
I’m 64 years old and still enjoy getting out in the woods to cut. I have a history of foot and ankle issues and purchased these boots hoping they would provide the support I needed. I wear a size 11 medium but followed the recommendation of ordering a half size smaller. The 10.5 mediums I ordered fit me perfectly. As far as comfort and support, these are the best boots I have ever owned. I love them and feel safe and comfortable wearing them.
in very short - that boots are worth to put your comfort and protection in it.
I am glad that I chose them!
Good boots bad fit
I bought the lime green boots. After having shattered my heel in a fall I thought these would get these for the extra support. Over all I like them. However I received them and they felt ok out of the box but after a couple of days on the job I realized they were tight and it was then too late to send them back. The one issue I have with the boot is if you are working in rocky jagged areas, the sole seems to be narrower than the boot body where your feet are. I find rocks and tight areas that my feet are overhanging the soles and constantly getting pinched. Maybe a size larger or width wider would have helped. I’m only good for 6 hours in the boots and my feet are too sore. Again, probably because they are a shade too narrow at the toe. Other than that they are good boots. I’ll probably get another pair but not online as I can’t try them and send them back

Up to par so far
Ive tried numerous boots. Timberland, Danner, salewa..etc First day out of the box was a heavy rain and muddy day. Extremely sturdy but comfortable boots with enough water proofing to keep your feet dry ALL DAY. which most boots struggle with. And they dry quick. One more note to the comfort..my feet have never been dryer in a boot. Even on dry days when I sweat so do my feet. However in these my feet come out after a 10 hr day bone dry. Very impressive. For how solid they are they def breathe. I dont know how but they do. Broke in after a week. Does run .5 size big. So take that into account. I wear 8.5..got an 8 and they are perfect. Lots of support with plenty of room in the toe bed. Also performed very well in the tree as well. Great grip and stability on precarious limba. If you are a serious arborist do yourself a favor and get these. You wont be disappointed.
So far so great
I really have enjoyed these boots tremendously so far. They were painfully stiff at first, but broke in quick. I ordered wides because the wide xr200s fit well im.glad I did, because they are definitely none too wide. I ordered my normal size, they do run big, but they feel really good with that extra space. They dont feel sloppy because of the xoned lacing and nice footbed. There is something strange in the left boot, like it pushes on the sides of my toes, so we'll see if that part breaks in. The steel shanks are great for for spurs.
Love these boots!
I am an arborist doing urban tree work. I've had these boots for about 6 weeks now, they broke in super easy. They're comfortable, and flexible, yet firm and very supportive. The toe is strong and firm. They're great for climbing in as well. I highly recommend them over the typical European brand chainsaw protective forestry boots. Nice to see a company here in America making high quality chainsaw protective boots.
Over all the bolts are very comfortable. I’m happy with the protection of they give my feet and how well the grip in the tree. They work with my spikes great. I’m disappointed in a few things about the boots. The sizing is a little frustrating. I had to downsize almost 2 full shoe sizes to get in a pair that fit properly. Thankfully the staff is very helpfully and contact between the staff and myself was fast. I have had the boots for just under a month and have worn them for work maybe 10 days total so far. Already I have had a lace loop break and the waterproofing is junk. They are supposed to be gortex so I’m a little confused why in only a few hours of working in snow my toes are getting wet along with the entire toe cap area. It’s frustrating paying $300+ dollars for these boots to have wet feet and broken parts with in a few days of use.
We appreciate you taking the time to review the Protector Ultra. We are happy to hear that you like the comfort of these boots and that our Customer Service Dept. was able to help you find the correct size. We apologize that the waterproof feature is not up to your satisfaction and that you had a lace loop break in such a short amount of time. I believe this would be a warranty issue. Please contact our Customer Service Dept. at 866-344-4249 to see how we can rectify this situation. Thanks again for reaching out. We certainly hope this will not deter you from considering HAIX again in the future!
Out of the box you know it's a heavy duty shoe. They make me think of space boots. Great visuals, good comfort. I read a review saying you should order a size smaller then what you need. I did and it worked out. One funny thing I noticed was the left shoe and right shoe front pad. The piece with the shoe serial. They were different shades of green. One looked older and worn vs the other smooth and a brighter hue. Not to bothersome considering it's a work boot and going to get messed up after a week. I've owned Redwing, Redback, Timberland, and now Haix. I'd have to rate these at the top of the bunch. But for the price it should come with a pair of socks or free shipping. I might consider more Haix in the future if I can catch discount deals.
We appreciate you taking the time to review the Protector Ultra. We are happy to hear that you like the style and comfort of this heavy duty boot. These boots do run about a half-size larger than a normal boot so we are happy that these worked out for you. We apologize that the coloring was a little off. Not sure the reason for this but as you said, they are work boots that will get messed up on the job. As far as discounts, we do run specials with free socks, free shipping and a % off throughout the year so keep checking back. Thank you for considering HAIX! Stay safe out there!
These are very comfortable boots considering that I wear them for 12+ hours during work days. I also have the protector prime boots which are equally as comfortable. I had a problem with my ultras as one of the lace hooks broke but I talked to customer service and they took care of the problem right away with a new pair of boots. Kudos to their customer service (Lynn) I was very impressed with everything. I highly recommend these boots for logging as well as other activities.
We appreciate you taking the time to share your feedback on the Protector Ultra. We are happy to hear that these boots are comfortable even on long work days. We pride ourselves on top-notch customer service and we are glad they were able to help you with your issue in a timely manner. Thank you for your recommendation. We hope these boots continue to serve you well!
