A little over 5 years ago, former Fire Chief and president/owner of HAIX—Ewald Haimerl—took on a project that had “hold my beer” written all over it. The result? A boot that must be worn to be believed.
When someone says they are a firefighter, most of us can conjure up an image of the turnout coats, helmets, and firehoses. However, there is a vast difference in training and gear when responding to a burning house in a cul-de-sac and a fifth-floor walkup apartment in a densely populated city. HAIX® knows that many jobs within the fire industry have unique demands that require specialized features. The job is always tough, so we created this simple feature review of our most tried and trusted boots. Safe, comfortable, and thoughtfully designed—these are the HAIX® hallmarks.
Properly caring for your fire equipment will help preserve both its longevity and performance. This includes how you routinely treat the equipment, and how frequently you clean it. HAIX North America offers advanced leather firefighter boots that are designed for years of hard use. Even with our above-average build quality, material choices, and performance features, there are some easy-care tips you can incorporate to maximize the life of our leather fire boots.
Few people are brave enough to do the job of a fire fighter. Putting their lives on the line to help others who cannot help themselves makes it one of the most selfless service jobs around. If you are one of these impressive men and women helping fight fires around the United States, selecting the best possible fire fighter boots is an investment in your future safety and performance. At HAIX® North America, we specialize in crafting some of the most sought after leather fire boots for years of impressive performance and protection.
Today’s firefighting boots need to do more than just keep your feet dry, they need to keep you protected in many other ways. Firefighting boots have come a long way from those clunky rubber boots of old. Even though leather boots have been around for years, many fire departments opt to purchase rubber boots over leather boots. Many times, the decision frankly comes down to cost. While rubber boots are cheaper, cost should not be the only factor that comes into play.
If you are one of the many brave men and women that perform the duties of a firefighter, then you know how vital it is that every article of clothing you put on keeps you protected. While this of course includes your helmet, coat, facemask, and gloves, one of the most important pieces of equipment is your firefighter boots.
The heat and intensity of fire create an incredibly harsh environment. If your job is to help fight fires, or you inspect recently burned buildings, you need to have ample protection on your feet to reduce the risk of burns, or other damage. Our eather fire boots are available in various styles to accommodate even the most difficult of environments.
