Keep your footing with our anti-slip sole
In the Scout 2.0, no matter what the situation, you can rest assured you will stay on your feet. The distinctive tread design will maintain its traction on a wide variety of surfaces and in many types of weather, even when it's wet and cold.
Keep yourself dry and comfortable thanks to GORE-TEX
No matter the weather, the GORE-TEX inner lining on our Scout 2.0 will guarantee your feet will stay dry and comfortable no matter how long you are out in the elements. Dry feet equals no distractions. Let's you enjoy nature no matter what she dishes out.
Scout 2.0's long lasting durability allows you to go that extra mile
Scout 2.0 is the embodiment of European craftsmanship. Constructed of European Nubuk bull hide and hard wearing textile, Scout 2.0 offers the rugged durability you need out on the trail.
When the sole hits the road, depend on Scout 2.0
Scout 2.0's Vibram sole features an aggressive tread and proven reliability to get you where you need to go. Long wearing and durable are the key words of the day. The stable sole platform keeps you on your feet and keeps cold from seeping into your toes in colder climates.
Comfort fit with HAIX® cushioned insole
HAIX insoles keep your feet and your boots 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 boots fresh and comfortable.
Breathable comfort with HAIX® Climate System
The Scout 2.0 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 vent holes at the top of the boot. The Climate System essentially works likes an air conditioning system in your boot.
Outstanding ankle support so a twisted ankle doesn't ruin your day
Scout 2.0 features open hook speed lacing so that you can adjust the lacing for your fit and for optimum ankle support. Giving you the support you need even when carrying a large pack. Keep twisted ankles at bay.
With Scout 2.0, you don't have to feel every rock and stone in the universe
The built in lightweight bruise plate on the Scout 2.0 keeps your feet protected from sharp rocks and stones even in heavy terrain. The anti-torsion design gives you outstanding stability that supports your feet; protecting them from twisting and turning. Reducing foot and leg fatigue and knee and back pain.
Phenomenal solution ofr under $300
I have owned Danner, Thorogood, Salomon, Safeway, and Chippewa boots. About 8 models, total.
For light trail work, Salomon will absolutely have great solutions.
For heavy work like forestry, or irrigation work where waterproofing and/or robust ankle protection is a must, allwhile being lightweight: Haix is the absolute best bang-for-buck. Particularly, the Scout 2.0.
Most of my crew are partial to the Scout 1.0 because it is the OG. That's fair.
I bought the Scout 2.0 and now my other boots are collecting dust. Unless I'm doing hikes with friends, or looking to diminish weight in hunting boots, Haix Scout 2.0 are hands down the best solution.
Break-in took 2 weeks which consisted of three dog walks per day that are between 20-45 minutes each walk, shop work, store runs, and home resto.
these get better as conditions get worse
I bought these despite not really liking the look and feel in the store because my other HAIX boots, "combat hero"s in 13M, are absolutely fantastic - comfortable, lightweight, tough enough, easy to take on and off, and with phenomenal grip on anything dry. Adding two cans of silicon spray made them water resistant and ideal for most of what I got them for: mountain and hill hiking in semi-arid conditions - plus, with my pants legs over the tops they don't look like boots, so I wear them places my wife would make me take boots off.
Sometimes, however, we get heavy snow and minus ridiculous followed by chinook winds that remove much of the snow but leave icy patches
hiding in the grass. See this photo for what that looks like:
The combat hero boots emphatically do not do well on ice .. hence the ScoutII purchase.
They're relatively heavy, shorter than I like, require a larger size to fit (14M), and look (at least when new)
as if you might have bought them at an outfitters.
Appearances, however, can be deceiving: in reality, these things are tough as nails, nicely insulated, grip very well on ice and snow, and have the arch support needed for hours of outdoor work or hard going.
Bottom line? the ScoutII is overkill for an hour here or there on easy trails but if your use case involves lots of time-in-boots, wet or icy terrain, and minor hazards like broken rock, manure, or barbed wire, these are the boots for you.
Am I Actually Wearing Anything on My Feet?
So light and comfortable, right out of the box, I couldn’t tell. I have sensitive feet and ankles. Any shoe too tight or that clamps down on my ankle are a no-go for me. The fit and quality of this boot took that issue off the table. The dual lacing system is outstanding. These are my go to boots for hiking and hot tent camping. Thank you Haix for making quality gear that works in the real world.Read more
3rd time writing I messed up the form. Awesome boots way lighter then logger boots way sturdier then hiking shoes. I’m hiking about 10 miles a day cruising timber in WV. Unless I’m in soupy Skidder mud my feet are dry. Streams, rain, dew I’m dry. If I’m ankles deep in skid trails My socks get a little damp. Nothing but a rubber boot will keep you dry in that so I can’t complain. My feet and back have never felt better after a day of work, priced fairly, and I expect to get good life out of them. I wear 10 regular in everything and 10 regular fits great. If Haix keeps making boots like this I don’t see myself going to any other brand. KEEP MAKING SOFT TOE BOOTS, not all of us need the protection. Most of us foresters (at least in the states) need something sturdy but without the discomfort and weight of steel toes.Read more
I love the brand and the boot was well made and fit well but I am a vegetable farmer and they were too stiff through the heel to work on my knees with my feet folded behind me. Otherwise these would have been great boots for orchard or vineyard work.Read more
One tough boot
I only gave it a 9 because the insole I feel is too light
I enjoy these boots
I was in some very wet muddy conditions and walked for an hour and did not have wet feet when done
The support is great and the feel is very comfortable
When on hard surfaces I find the insole lacking
I will be getting something to replace the insole
Fantastic boot well worth the money
Great pair of boots
Very comfortable and light weight. Are an awesome boot!Read more
Just got these boots in and I was very pleased with the quality of these boots. Break in has been a little rough and not quiet as comfortable as expected but still feel great on my feet. I wear a 10 1/2 in tennis shoes and ordered a 10 1/2 in these and they fit perfect. Excited to see how they last and perform once broke in!Read more
Overall very comfortable but it does have a narrow toe box and should have ordered my normal size. Very well made and would recommend.Read more
Like these a lot
Comfortable right out of the box. Good balance of light weight, stable, agile.Read more
Scout 2 - light stable
Comfortable right out of the box. Lightweight for such a stable boot. Military boot stability and agility without the military boot appearance.Read more
Mon ami les aime.
Mon ami les aime beaucoup quand j'ai le donne ces bottes comme cadeau. Il faut qu'il tienne les bottes pour le froid quand il déblaye la neige, et ça fonctionne bien pour son travail.Read more
Not for Me
I've worn HAIX for the last 15 years and I figured I'd try these hiking boots. There appear to have everything that you would want in a hiking boot, but there were very stiff. I think I just might go back to the Airpowers. If these boots are made like everything else by HAIX they will last for years.Read more
The HAIX boot works well. Do not over tighten the laces as the back of the heel blisters may form. I walked ten miles with no problems, but when tied tighter blisters formed in less than a mile.Read more
Still my go to company
First of all I am extremely fussy about my foot comfort. I have always rejected shoes and boots that refuse to wear correctly. My first venture into Haix is with the heavy duty logging boot several years ago. I was so impressed with the comfort and fit and finish of these boots that I purchased a second pair in order to ensure that I had many years of quality boot. Although those boots were designed for logging and work requiring stability and safety toe, I have even use them in hunting applications. Because of the company reputation I purchased the scout boot and was immediately impressed. Same quality, fit and finish was perfect, and again I purchased a second pair. These are my every day wear foot ware.
I highly recommend this company and the products they provide.
Seems like a good boot but small toe box
Boot appeared well designed and constructed. The lacing system allowed the wearer have the lower laces looser or tighter than the upper laces depending on preference. The boot also did an excellent job locking the heel in place and ankle support felt solid. Sadly, like most modern designed boots, they have a narrow toe box even in the wide (though it is wider than other brands I have attempted such as Danner, Lowa and Altberg). Unfortunately I had to return them but if they had a wider toe box such as Altra (they make trail runners) I think this would have been a perfect boot. The customer service rep always answered e-mails quickly and was very helpful.Read more
Fantastic FitRead more
This is a good solid boot for outdoor work. Looks really well made, true to size and comfortable from day one. Much lighter than my other work boots. Highly recommended.Read more
Fan for life
Was an entire size up from the suggested size using the foot in cm guide; luckily, they fit perfectly. They are light, very comfortable, extremely well built and are surprisingly quiet. In addition, the Vibram soles offer great grip. Overall awesome boot. Couldn't really ask for more.Read more
The boots are awesome (as expected). I will say though that the toe box is not as wide as other Haix boots I use and I am a bit disappointed, but they aren't uncomfortable. They are performing well overall. Primary use is walking/hiking through unmaintained ROWs, streetside, swamps.Read more
Amazing boot! Excellent customer service
Boots shipped super fast. Initially ordered the wrong size , was able to get in touch with customer service and they corrected my order before it shipped, they were awesome! The boots are Super light and extremely comfortable! Will definitely be purchasing from Haix again in the future.Read more
