A Cut Above the Rest
Now you can get better cut protection without sacrificing comfort. While safety and protection should be a top priority, having a boot that you can wear comfortably day in and day out should hold just as much importance. Because discomfort can lead to distraction, and you can’t afford distraction in your line of work. The Protector Ultra Signal Red offers all of the above and more.
Lightweight with Superior Cut Protection
Just like it’s sister boot, the Protector Ultra Lime Green, the Protector Ultra Signal Red offers the higher level protection of European Class 2; meaning the boots are tested to a chainsaw speed of 24 m/second. These boots offer exceptional stability on any kind of uneven terrain while feeling surprisingly lightweight. The steel toe also provides the highest level of ASTM toe protection. The brightly colored signal red suede upper works in conjunction with the reflective material at the heel and ankle for increased visibility near the chainsaw both day and night.
Soft Cuff to Prevent Sawdust and Woodchips from Getting Inside
With an eye toward comfort and safety with an attention to detail, the Protector Ultra Signal Red features a soft close fitting sleeve at the top of the boot that prevents flying wood chips and debris from getting inside and causing irritation to you and to your feet. No cleaning out wood slivers from your boots at the end of a long day.
Two-Zone Lacing with Roller Ball Eyelets for a Personalized Fit
The suede upper offers double stitched construction with minimal seaming to yield a longer wearing, more durable boot and less risk of seam failure out in the field. HAIX® knows you need to be able to depend on your footwear to perform, especially when far from home. The two zone lacing of the upper allows you to individually adjust the upper and lower lace areas for a customized fit while the roller ball style eyelets make the adjustment quick and easy. Your boot can be adjusted to fit to your own personal preferences.
HAIX® Climate System Works with Breathable GORE-TEX® Inner Liner
The thicker European suede leather is not only breathable but ensures your boots last for years to come. Combined with the GORE-TEX® waterproof liner, your feet are guaranteed to stay dry and comfortable in any kind of weather. The built in Climate System circulates fresh air in and moist air out of the boot through the vent holes at the side and tongue. This helps the boot maintain a comfortable temperature no matter how heavy the work. Using a good wool blend sock, like the HAIX® multifunctional sock, works best with the HAIX® Climate System as the sock helps to wick away moisture, keeping your feet drier. The direr the feet, the less likelihood of blister and discomfort. An added benefit of the adjustable lacing system is that it allows you more flexibility in your sock choice. You can choose thicker socks for cold weather or thinner socks for the warmer months and adjust the lacing accordingly.
Ankle Stability and Vibram Soles for Extra Grip and Slip Resistance
The HAIX® Protector Ultra Signal Red features built in ankle protection and support, keeping your delicate ankle area safe and secure with less opportunity for ankle injuries. The sturdy Vibram® hiking sole delivers extra grip and slip resistance when you need it and long lasting durability on even the longest hike.

Well made but run large
Can't give a fair review because haven't worn these boots in the field. I ordered my normal boot size, which also happened to be the size the website sizing chart recommended. Unfortunately boots are at LEAST a full size, maybe a size and a half too big. I hate returning things but they are unwearable. If they were cheaper boots I might have stuck with it and cut my losses. Will have to wait for the refund and then order a smaller size. Also the wide is not really wide. These aren't going to be be the dream tree boot for people with wide feet. The toe box is still narrow and quite tapered. The width of the tread on the sole is also surprisingly narrow (Not that that effects comfort). Boots appear very well made, as one would hope for a 400 dollar boot. I just wish more retailers sold haix to avoid the sizing issue.
Thank you for taking the time to review the Protector Ultra Signal Red. We are happy to hear that you like the comfort and high-quality of these boots. We are sorry that you had some issues with the fit of the boots. That sizing tool is new and we are still working out the kinks so we apologize that it was not accurate. If you are ever unsure of sizing, we are always available to offer a recommendation either via the Live Chat or by contacting our Customer Service Dept. We hope once you get the correct size and put them to use you will be able to leave another review about their performance. Again, we appreciate your feedback and hope you will remain a loyal HAIX customer in the future.
These boots are amazing
I am a code compliance inspector and and I manage a vegetation management program for a municipality. I coordinate the program with inspections and manage a brush removal contractor. I injured my ankle and the height of the boot/ankle/lower leg protection design attracted me. They performed amazingly well. I hike trough chest high brush where I cannot see the ground surface. I have stepped in ruts and on rocks the would have defiantly injured my formerly injured ankle, and I can feel the boot absorbing the impacts. The boot is the right amount of stiffness and flexibility. The form of the boot and tread allows my feet to grip on steep hillsides with loose dirt and rock. I’ve had instances where only an inch of tread grips a steep slope and I am able to not slide downhill while maintaining grip. These are worth every penny spent.
PULL THE TRIGGER
I've now been wearing these boots for 2 months solid. I use my stuff HARD. Everything I own works for me it gets the can. I've owned and worn Chippewa, Carolina, highliners and my "go to" REDWING for about 15 years. I climb daily, I do ground work daily. I can without question say these boots are the best money I've ever spent on my feet. I have been breaking toe nails off with other boots, it's stopped with these HAIX boots. I was worried because the first few weeks I was soaking sold through and changing them twice a day. Customer relations not only suggested using wool blend but sent me a pair free of charge. If you're on the fence about buying these boots due to price, trust me on this one, pull the trigger.
Great boots for a Horse Logger
just 10 out a 10, ill save you all the vulgar explanative which describe how amazing these boots are. Every single person who has asked asks the same question. Comfortable? Too Warm? Flexable? Too Heavy?
I surprise every one of them with my answers. Yes, No, Yes, No
I harvest timber with a pair of horses so moving quick is really important, a lot of the time when the wood gets big you wanna be ready to get up and go with the ponies. Haix boots have delivered, I have 10 work days in them and love them. worth every penny. Any CS is great, free return, free shipping, complimentary discount codes to make sure the I wasn't loosing money from the return. CAN NOT SAY ENOUGH.
Hope they are as durable as they are comfortable. time will tell.
Protector Ultra Signal Red
Just finished off another day of falling with my new Haix ultra protectors, and my feet feel fabulous. As most people have noticed, the boots were quite stiff when they first showed up. I wore them around town casually for a day and they already were feeling softer. The boots shipped quite quickly (All the way up to Northern Alberta, Canada) and you could tell the quality of the boot right out of the box. Another nice touch was the follow up phone call from Haix to see if the boots made it and what my initial thoughts were. If you read others people comments, there are some small minor things like being a bit on the warm side, but totally manageable. The stiffness, but again, softened up right away. The two zone lacing is a great touch, it took me a bit to get use to 'unlocking' the bottom zone when removing the boots, but the ball bearing lace rollers work great. The sole of the boot holds quite well on wet aspen (which is great as I quite dislike corks).As I was selecting the review rating, I was trying to be really picky but then if I compare the issues to ever going back to my old Stihl rubber boots, these Haix are hands down 100% my choice. Assuming these boots will hold up as well as they look like they will, I am very happy with these boots. It took me three years to pull the trigger and purchase these, and boy I wish I would have sooner. Working in water, feet stayed dry. Working on logs, feet didn't slip. Much lighter then regular steel toes, which is a nice change for me. I was a bit worried about the sizing, but I find they fit much like a Red Wing. I have two pairs of Red Wings both size 9 and these haix size nine are right on the mark. I usually wear a 9.5 running shoe (Vans) but I told by Haix to go down a half size. All in all, these boots are amazing. If you spend lots of time on your feet in uneven terrain, you wont go wrong here.
Just a great boot
Most comfortable pair of boots I have ever bought. Even though not in the Forrester industry these make your feet feel good even on concrete. Will definitely buy again and recommender others.
I am a wildland firefighter in Alberta and I have been looking for a solid pair of work boots that are also chainsaw certified. Crew members recommended these boots so I went out on a limb to try it (which was scary cause of the cost), but when I got them they felt amazing! My feet don’t get too hot, the break in time wasn’t very long, and they feel like you’re just wearing a beefy hiking boot! Would definitely recommend these boots to anybody working in the forest!
The only thing was that they were a tiny bit big to begin with, but once they were broken in, the laces were able to be tightened more.
Ultra logger boots
Very happy with comfort and over feel of the boot. Great buy highly recommend!
Perfect forestry boot
I’m a tree planter and every time I buy steel two work boots I know I’m going to have to buy new ones after a 2.5 month season. These after receiving them I can tell I won’t need to buy new boots for at least 4-5 seasons. Great quality, very comfortable, they’re fairly light, I have an ankle injury and it makes me feel so secure. Happy with my purchase!
Very comfortable after a short break-in time. Glad to have the extra protection.
Most comfortable boots I’ve worked in ever. Love these boots well worth the price if they last as long as they say. Perfect for any arborist
Great forestry boot
I'm a climber arborist and this boot is amazing but don't climb in these as the eyelets will break. My eyelet broke the second day I had them but I called Haix and not only did they offer to fix my boots they sent me a second pair of boots! I love these boots and they are the most comfortable boots and they don't leave my feet sore and sweaty after a long day of work. Just remember if you're a tree climber get these for ground work only! I have the arbpro evo 2 for the climb then I slip into the haix for the groundwork. Worth it, haix has my business for sure.
