Double Duty Boots for Paramedics and Firefighters

A majority of your time as a firefighter or paramedic will be spent wearing station boots. So it only makes sense to invest in the right kind of men's EMS steel toe boots that can be worn in both the firehouse and on emergency calls. With the right boot, any undertaking becomes easier. With HAIX® Factory Seconds Airpower® R2 steel toe EMS boots, your feet are not only kept comfortable but also protected from the many potential hazards encountered on the job.

Polishable Leather and Reflective Back Heel and Zipper

The Airpower R2 offers a smooth leather polishable toe since some departments make that a requirement in their station boots. When a polishable toe is needed, HAIX® Airpower R2 is just the boot for you. We also added a few areas of reflective material on the back heel and along the zipper, for better visibility while on emergency calls at night.

Protective Toe and Built-in Arch Support

Because an extra roomy steel toe is built into the HAIX® Airpower R2 boots, your toes get plenty of room to move around while still being protected from impact blows and compression. All without pinching or cramping your foot.

The built-in arch support helps you maintain comfort throughout the day even after you've been standing for long periods of time. The right support not only prevents foot pain but also potential foot problems in the future.

And with the laced in zipper system, you can achieve a more personal fit by adjusting the lacing how you like but still take it off quickly and easily after a long hard day.

CROSSTECH® Protected with Arch Support System and Steel Puncture Plate

European leather craftsmanship is evident in these steel toe EMS boots which ensures longer lasting durability.
The specially developed rubber sole with its slip-resistant, heat resistant, oil, and fuel resistant and antistatic features ensures that you are able to move freely on the job without any worries. Since HAIX® soles are also non-marking, you leave no hard to remove scuff marks on your clean floors. With a steel puncture plate embedded into the shoe, you get the best puncture resistance there is. The even better part? You won't even know that it's there. 

The HAIX® Airpower R2 is waterproof and breathable and has added protection against chemicals and bloodborne pathogens with its CROSSTECH® inner liner. And because it works together with the HAIX® Climate System, your feet are guaranteed to stay comfortable and dry no matter what temperature is. The HAIX® climate system allows the air in your boots to circulate, since the movement of your feet when walking, literally pumps warm and moist air out of the inside of your shoes. It's an amazing feature that protects you from the little nuisances that keep you from performing your job.

Secura Liner® and HAIX® Sun Reflect Leather Protected

The HAIX® Secura Liner® feature guarantees that your inner liner will never pull out or wrinkle up over time. There is nothing worse than walking around all day feeling an uncomfortable ridge where the liner has bunched up. HAIX® Sun Reflect leather also makes sure that your feet are kept cooler even when under direct sunlight.

HAIX® Lacing System NFPA Certified for EMS

The patented lacing system of the HAIX® lets you adjust the tightness of your boot depending on what is comfortable for you and it won’t loosen after only a few minutes of pressure. This ensures that you never have to worry about retying your boot while in the middle of saving lives on the job. 

At the end of the day, you can easily take off the R2 boots in a few seconds through the front zipper and pull tab. Because after a long and hard day at work, the last thing you'll want to deal with are shoe laces.

I work in Code Compliance/inspections

I wear these as a construction/property inspector. I purchased them for the steel toe and foot puncture protection. Felt great right out of the box! Easy on/off with the zipper. I still have yet to figure out the lacing but HAIX makes a great product!

We’re these supposed to be factory seconds?! Because they’re amazing!!! The break in was extremely short! (Two days maybe?) They’re re the most comfortable boots ever! Whether I’m killing it with constant IFTs, Fire standbys or rigorous scene calls, these puppies don’t hurt my feet one bit. 10/10 will continue recommending!

Factory seconds, blemish undetectable

Recently received these boots. They fit well and I can't find any blemishes or problems with them. Exactly what I wanted.

Great Boot

As my experience in the past has been with Haix, this purchase has been a wise one. 10/10 would purchase again. Great fit, comfort, and price.

HAIX Airpower R2, FS review

Great long lasting boot and very comfortable (My first pair has lasted 10 years in the Fire and EMS service).
I'm looking forward to another 10 years of service with these boots.

My Favorite Boots!!

I bought these for my son for his birthday. These were his second pair of haix factory seconds. The first pair lasted him 5 years of frequent wear and only got messed up from working on a farm - these are definitely not farm use boots but they are everything else use boots. I have worn them for EMS work for about 10 years and I can tell you that they're the most comfortable, form fitting ankle supporting boot I've ever worn. My adult son feels the same way. He also said that he got several compliments on the appearance of the boots. These boots don't even have a break in period. They are comfortable from day one. They require occasional tightening of the laces to stay supportive but they are otherwise maintenance free. We also love the fact that they stay water proof forever and I stand in 6 inches of water sometimes. I had one pair for work that the sole separated in just a few months so we sent them back and got a new pair for free and never had another issue. I'm rough so I always buy the style with the toe cap. Haix is the best bang for your buck hands down!!!!

Impressive Boots!

I was excited to order and receive my new R2 boots. I received them in just three days and started to wear them right out of the box. I work 24 on 48 hours off as a Captain for a very busy Fire Dept. After just two shifts they were fully broke in! I'm very happy with the boots. They are true to size and I would recommend them to any of my firefighters.

Great boot

I purchased this boot for work, I have been wearing them and they fit great. It did not take long to break in. I would recommend these boots to anyone looking for station boots.

Good Fit

This is the second pair I purchased. It was tight and took about a week to fully adjust as I also have a larger than normal insole. They were initially had a leather click / squeak that went away after some time of wearing them. My first pair was size 13 wore them a long time. Then the local FD purchased ones and did have a fit test boot that brought the size to 12 which is my normal. I would purchase them again. Quick on and snug fit without foot problems.

Admin 14 Feb 2017

Hi Steven,

We appreciate you taking the time to review the Airpower R2, FS.  Because of the full grain leather used throughout, these boot can take a little longer to break in.  But we are happy to hear that after the initial break-in period, you have found these boots to be comfortable and that the new size has worked for you.  Thanks for your service!

Ken is an idiot

Ken, you wrote a negative review of a boot that YOU knowingly ordered in the incorrect size? Haix boots are stellar and a negative review based on a mistake you made is not a valid review. I have two pairs of Factory Seconds boots from Haix and I have yet to find any defects. Try your actual size next time. Cry baby.

21 Jun 2016

Wasn't the right fit

I ordered these boots 1/2 size larger than I usually wear because they were the only size available. Unfortunately they were not the right fit and caused chaffing on my heels after a few minutes of initially wearing them. Haix was very easy to work with making a return and getting a quick refund. I would do businesses with them again but only when they have my boot in the proper size.
