Airpower P7 High Winter
Airpower P7 High Winter
Traditional tactical boot with added insulation for extra warmth.
Saved my foot!
I've been a fan of Haix for over a decade! I love the comfort and the durability of their boots. I still have a pair I got in 2011and they're still going strong. A couple of years ago, I decided to purchase the P7 Winter boots. Although I love the comfort, my feet still get cold during a harsh Canadian winter day. However, they have become my motorcycle boots since I started riding last year. Yesterday, I was involved in a collision where a moron changed lanes into me to avoid rear ending someone else in her lane. She hit the back tire of my motorcycle and wiped us out (my gf in the back), we both went down and slid across the asphalt. After I got home, I took a really good look at my left boot and it got destroyed! I can still wear it, but the side of the sole has chunks of rubber missing, some stitches came out, the leather all scratched and ripped, and the lace pegs literally filed down!! I wish I could upload a picture here, but if I had been wearing thinner shoes, my foot would have been destroyed! Thankfully we both walked away from there, my gf got some abrasion in her left leg, and I was able to ride the bike from the scene! Thank you Haix for a kickass, reliable product!!Read more
Still breaking these boots in, but I can confirm that they are: narrow (which fits my narrow feet), we’ll-constructed, grippy, and most importantly, warm.Read more
The word seemed to be “order up”, but that half size up was too much for me: the heels kept slipping up and down along my foot, so I think the 9 was too long, should have tried my usual 8.5.Read more
Haix Winter Boots
Great boots!! Well made and very comfortable! I will buy Haix again!Read more
Comfort should be the name
One solid pair of boots !!!
Outstanding pair of boots , I am a Fire Service instructor, having worn more boot types than I can count. I am constantly in and out of flowing and standing water out in the drill yard with recruits. These boots are keeping me dry and warm, here in the New England winter. They are probably the best pair of boots I have ever worn. The HAIX p7 high winter are definitely narrow so you might want the wide if needed. They are true to size, for a little extra wiggle room you might also want to go 1/2 size larger. Comfort level is awesome within 2 weeks of breaking them in. I have already recommended them to friends and co workers. If your trying to justify the purchase, simply know they are 100% worth it. On a personal note; I love the "D" ring snap on the laces at the ankle level, if your boot becomes loosened or untied, this "D" ring keeps it tight at the ankle for support.
One solid pair of boots !!!
Outstanding pair of boots , im ex military and have worn more boot types than i care to remember (british combat high legs , dutch para boots , german para boots , desert boots etc ) these boots are probably the best pair of boots i have ever owned (toss up against german para boots , slight edge to haix p7 high winter). They definately run for a narrow foot so get the wides and order a size up for a little extra wiggle room. Comfort level is already awesome within 2 weeks of breaking them in . On the personal side i have spinal damage which gave me neuropathy and each night in bed my feet would be burning . My P7's have dramatically reduced that. I have already recommended them to friends and co workers. On a down side i wish haix offered some incentive in the security field along side ems and leo. If your trying to justify the purchase then dont they are 100% worth it.Read more
Awesome Boots - Awesome Service
These are the second pair of HAIX boots I have purchased in the last year. The quality of these boots is fantastic and the service I received pre and post sale resulted in the perfect fit. Evaluate for yourself how much you have spent in the past 5 years on boots and making the choice to upgrade to HAIX is a no brainer. Properly cared for, these will comfortably outlast anything you’ve ever worn before.Read more
So waited 8 months to test and post review. 8 to 10 hours a day in this years midwest winter with constant sub zero temps ( -30 to -50) and lots of exposure outside. Feet stayed warm and dry. Cool spring with midwest flooding and they stayed dry. Only warning go wide on size as ordered reg 13' s to start and no problem with customer service exchanging for the wide. At 6'2" 250 lbs they took a lot of abuse and you could not tell any change in comfort etc. They are a little bit heavy but they are a heavy duty winter boot and while pricey compared to other boots well worth the money.Read more
High Quality Warm Boot
This is my second pair of Haix boot and I could not be happier. After exchanging for a half size smaller they feel like they were custom made for me. I have had some health issues and need warm boots that provide traction, warmth and stability on icy areas. This is my first dual lace system and after watching the You Tube video how to lace I realized I was over tightening the lower portion of non Haix boots in the past not allowing my feet to daily adjust. NOT a problem anymore Lastly I love that the insoles are removable to allow orthotic heel wedges to be inserted under the insole If I could rate them any higher that a 10 I would. Go ahead and buy them you will like then love them..Read more
Best boots money can buy
This is my second pair of airpower p7 boots, the first pair lasted 5 years and 10,000 miles of walking. I work 12-16 hour shifts on my feet all day and I love these boots, they provide excellent support and traction in all conditions. I've had boots from all major manufacturers like Magnum,5.11,Danner,Bellevile just to make a few and after buying my first pair of Haix I wont wear anything else because of the superior construction, comfort and longevity. They do fit narrow so order a wide unless you have really narrow feet and replace the factory insole with something better and you cant go wrong. There is a break in period with these due to the high quality leather but noticed these broke in much faster than my first pair.
The only thing I dont like on these boots is the velcro on the tongue of the boot, after some time it starts to wear a hole on the inside upper edge of the boot, I took a seam ripper to the velcro and removed it on this pair to avoid that happening as it did on my first pair bug it be prepared to restitch the area of the tongue where the velcro was removed to keep it from coming apart.
Other than the velcro and subpar insoles I highly recommend these boots to everyone, great waterproofing very warm and long lasting definitely worth the price. You can spend 150 on one of the other brand boots but they will only last a year or spend the extra and get 5 years out of them. The only reason I'm replacing my original pair is because I wore out the soles and head to send them out for new soles but cant be without my Haix for 4-6 weeks turn around so now I will have a spare set.
I want to start of by saying these boots are very good. They are not perfect but the best winter boots I have used as a Police Officer. I can say I have seen how warm they are as I live in Central Minnesota and have put these boots to use in -25 degree weather and colder. My feet rarely get cold and if they do, a little walking warms them back up. I can't say they same for all of the other "winter" boots other companies use out there. After a longer break in period, they become very comfortable. They are no black eagle in terms of lightness but they are still comfortable and WARM. I tested waterproof which was very good in mud, water, and slush. The traction on ice is about as good as you can ask for rubber on ice. Now to the negatives, one the break in period. It took me a few weeks before they were fitting well. I normally can get a pair broke in within a week. The cost was high but I did the purchase over cyber Monday which helped. The size is narrow. I got a wide and wish I would have gotten a double wide (Customer Service told me to get double wide, I didn't listen, please listen to customer service, they know their stuff). Last issue is the shoe laces are too short. I prefer to rap the lace around he back of the boot and tie in front. The laces don't allow me to do that ( I will do this when its time to buy new laces). Overall, I think the boots are very well worth it. My feet stay warm, dry, they don't hurt, and boots stay tied all shift which is something only Haix has been able to do. If you need a good cold weather boot, these are it!!Read more
Have had these boots for a week and i absolutely love them. They are very stiff , which relates to the quality of the leather.The craftsmanship is top notch. Everyday i wear them they seem to get more comfortable. Like in earlier posts i have a normal width foot. And ordered a wide which is perfect. Ordered the winter boots for warmth and so far have been great for the temps in Illinois .Read more
Not even close to what size they say they are. I wear a size wide so I ordered Extra Wide for insurance that they would fit. They were more narrow than a women's medium wide shoe. They are extremely tight and very uncomfortable.Read more
Outstanding boots . Very supportive. They do however have a break in period as they are all leather. I have owned Danner practically every brand boot you can imagine and these are by far the best boot. I imagine they will get better as the age and break in. The advice on sizing was perfect one size wider than normal and same length as your athletic shoe. I will have to get another pair of HAIX. for summer wear as these are insulated but I wear my boots for over 18 hours when working . Very happy with this purchase . And customer service was AMAZINGRead more
Very Narrow Boot
I swore up and down Haix would be the only boot I would ever buy again. This was very true with the Athletic 11 side zip summer boots. Those are amazing! The AP7 winter boots are a different breed. It’s still a good boot, but it fits and wears completely different. Here’s my review and tips:
1. My feet are regular, however I tried the wide and extra wide sizes to get a decent fit. I went with wide. If you have regular feet, get the wide size! If you have somewhat wide feet, get the extra wide. The extra wide size may not be enough for you though. Overall, the boot is true to its numbered size.
2. The arch support is almost overkill. If you need support these boots have it!
3. The heel is tight and cradled.
4. The leather is quality and needs forever to break in. I’ve owned my pair for over a month and I’m still kind of breaking them in. I work long days too. My advice is to not lace them too tightly. This will only hurt the outermost portion of your feet. I’m still finding my sweet spot with them. The dual zone lacing is great. You can completely customize the fit for each portion of your foot. I feel like this feature alone has set the boot above the competition.
5. The boots are warm! So far they have kept my feet cozy in the cold MN winter. Make sure you let them dry out for a while after wearing them for an extended period of time though.
6. The tread is good, but theses boots don’t quite have the grip my Rocky boots did on ice or wet pavement.
7. Stick with the boots during the break in period! You will want to give up on them. Especially if you have them too snug. Just loosen the lower zone slightly. It makes a world of difference.
8. If you can physically look at the boots and try them on in a store, do it!!!! You will be very happy you did. Like I’ve said earlier the boots just wear way differently than other boots. They are definitely a narrow style boot.
9. I feel like the soul/cushion could have been a little more comfortable. Maybe increase the thickness?
10. Overall, it’s a good boot that should last for years. Haix seems like a great company that stands behind their product. If you have an issue they will take care of you.
Hopefully this review helps anyone on the fence about this boot. Enjoy!
Bought Haix AP7 for years. Glad they came out with a winter boot. I use them for climbing, I'm a Certified Arborist. I get at least 2 years out of a pair, and i climb on a daily basis. Love the heal and arch support. Fantastic with spurs, ascender,or foot lock method. Way better than a logger boot. I also do a lot of hiking. If you buy the winter AP7 go a half size up.Read more
Purchased these boot about a week ago. They are a little stiff as they are made of leather but comfortable. I ordered a WIDE but they fit more like a normal width, I would suggest that if you normally wear wide shoes, you order the extra wide. In cold winter months, I would normally double sock with an insulated sock, unfortunately (unless they stretch as they get broke in) I probably will not be able to do that as they would be too tight. Otherwise a good boot and would recommend them.Read more
My first pair of Haix, and now the only brand I'll ever buy!
You get what you pay for. With the Haix Airpower P7 Winter, I got the best all around tactical boot suitable for winter wear that I've ever worn. I've been doing this job a long time. I've tried many top brands: 5.11, Magnum, Bates and Converse. I'm sticking with Haix from now on. The boot is of the highest quality materials and construction, and it translates to the comfort and durability that is obvious after just a few days wearing them. As with all quality leather boots, there is a bit of a break-in period (about a week for me). I've had the boots for over a month, worn them 5-6 days a week. My feet stay dry and warm, and don't even sweat in them. They still smell like they just came out of the box. (That's saying something for me.) I will be buying a pair for summer use shortly, as well as several of my coworkers who wanted a pair as soon as they saw mine.Read more
