There is nothing easy about the job of a logger. Committed to long days working outdoors, logging professionals must perform their job in whatever conditions mother nature throws at them – whether that’s extreme heat, cold, rain, snow, ice, or wind. Facing elemental and workplace hazards daily, it is important to prepare yourself with the best possible equipment to meet your job site demands. That is where HAIX footwear can help. 74 years of engineering performance work boots have led to great innovations and helped establish HAIX as a globally recognized name in the workwear industry. Are you in the process of selecting your first or next pair of logger work boots? Use this easy-to-follow guide to help you select a pair based on your exact workplace needs.
Ensure Comprehensive Hazard Protection
An essential part of selecting logger work boots involves understanding the necessary protection required for your job site. Along with elemental hazards, loggers work with large trees, chainsaws, heavy equipment, and various sharp items that can pose great harm if your feet are unprotected. HAIX offers three main models of logger work boots: Airpower XR200, Protector Prime, and Protector Ultra.
Each pair is designed for exceptional job site performance, with the Protector Prime and Protector Ultra both falling under European class 2 cut protection (24m/second), and the XR200 classified under European class 1 cut protection (20 m/ second). They also feature either a steel or composite toe insert, to further protect your feet from any falling, heavy objects.
Comfort and Support
Once you understand your required safety features, it is important to select for maximum comfort and support. This is more than just your insole! When you spend hours on your feet navigating uneven forest terrain, features like a grippy sole, climate control system, two-zone lacing system, and GORE-TEX waterproofing all aid in keeping your feet dry, comfortable, and supported in any pair of HAIX logger work boots. The greater the comfort and support, the less prone you are to fatigue and even injury when performing your job.
Another key consideration to make when selecting your logger boots is the longevity and performance you are looking to achieve. As the old saying goes “you get what you pay for”, in that a cheap logger work boot will often not last years of hard use, and may need to be replaced quickly. HAIX applies years of design and engineering innovations to produce the best possible work boots for both performance and longevity. Robust materials like nubuck leather, GORE-TEX waterproof liners, and thick rubber soles make our boots last through the toughest of conditions without failure. While we may not be the cheapest boot you can find, we offer the best value in terms of performance for the money.
Selecting the right pair of logger work boots is a long-term investment in your comfort and performance on the job. Make the most of your money by choosing HAIX brand work boots.
