The integrity of your feet, and especially your toes, is important. The Airpower XR1 is equipped with composite toe caps that are lighter weight yet still keep your toes protected to the highest safety requirements. It helps reduce foot and leg fatigue from long hours on the job.

Keep yourself safe from dangerous fluids thanks to CROSSTECH® technology

Your job can expose you to dangerous situations. The CROSSTECH® technology in your Airpower XR1's inner lining not only keeps your boot waterproof, it keeps you protected from potentially hazardous fluids like blood, body fluids and chemicals. Your feet stay dry, you stay safe.

Keep your footing with HAIX® protective sole

Comfort to endure the longest hours

You spend long hours on your feet. We make sure it doesn't feel like it.

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.

Needed support for your feet with the HAIX® Arch Support System

You can perform your job duties better and with more stability with the Airpower XR1. The built in arch support relieves stress on your feet by distributing weight more evenly. Walk without pain, improve your general well being, and increase your ability to perform without the distraction of foot and leg pain.

Quick in and out zipper lacing system

When seconds matter, you can rely on the zipper lacing system in our Airpower XR1 to give you a more personalized fit while ensuring you can rush out to the next call without the hassle of lacing up. When your boots arrive, adjust the lacing for a personalized fit just for you. Then enjoy that fit every time, every day. Slip on, zip up, and go.

Breathable comfort with HAIX® Climate System

The Airpower XR1 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.

Your questions. Our honest answers.

Yes, you can buy replacement parts for the Airpower XR1 such as insoles, laces, and zippers. You can find these items on our website on the accessories page. If you are looking to retread or refurbish your Airpower XR1 boots, check out the HAIX Extended Wear program page.
Yes, your boot fit can be adjusted on the Airpower XR1 by tightening or loosening the laces on either side of the zipper mechanisim. For a slightly more individualized fit, boots can be adjusted with an alternate insole. A blue insole for a narrower fit (thickest), a yellow insole for a wider fit (thinnest). Extra insoles can be purchased on the accessories page.
Yes, the front lacing zipper system of the Airpower XR1 allows the individual user to adjust the fit to their own personal needs, offering more ankle support as needed, or possibly offering a looser fit in the lower leg for larger calves. Boots should be adjusted to your preference when they are received, then just zip in or out from then on. A second adjustment to the lacing may be needed after the boots have gone through their initial break in period.
The Airpower® XR2 and Airpower® R2 are certified to NFPA 1999 for emergency medical operations while the Airpower® XR1 is certified to both NFPA 1999 and NFPA 1977 for Wildland Firefighting.The Airpower® XR2 and Airpower R2 are both 8" in height while the Airpower® XR1 is 9" in height. Both the Airpower® XR1 and XR2 are composite toe with non-metallic puncture plates while the Airpower® R2 has a steel toe and steel puncture plate. The Airpower® R2 differs from the other 2 models in that it has a leather toe that is polishable. Since the Airpower® XR2 and XR1 are so similar, the Airpower® XR1 has a red NFPA 1977 label on the left boot.
With the CROSSTECH inner liner, the Airpower XR1 does offer protection from liquids, chemicals, and bloodborne pathogens. The boots are tested and certified according to NFPA 1990 (1992) standards for biopenetration.
The Airpower XR1 runs similar in size to your athletic shoe size, but because of the built in arch support, they do run on the narrow side. The Airpower XR1 comes in medium, wide, and extra wide widths. It is recommended that you order one width larger than your usual width. For example, most people who normally wear a medium, would wear a wide in this boot.

These boots hold up against the competition and keep me safe on my feet.

While I’ve worn a lot of brand boots from many high end outlets that claim their boot is the best, I can tell you I am overly impressed with these boots. They are durable, very very quality and HAIX customer service is prompt and courteous. I don’t think actually I know I’ll never buy another brand other than HAIX. This is your boot for the serious professional. They look good feel good and well it’s just GREAT!!I absolutely love my Haix Airpower XR1s. These boots hold up against the competition and keep me safe on my feet.

Excellent Produc

I just purchased these boots for my 12 week fire academy and couldn’t be more pleased. We go from 6am to 6pm and we get hammered! Once they got passed the break-in period they fit like glove. I also purchased the Fire Hero Xtreme boots simply because i didn’t want to use the roached our academy boots. Both boots will carry into my carry as a firefighter and proved to withstand 12 weeks of intense daily academy abuse.

Third time Great!

Started at size 10. Too Big, sent back and thought for sure 9.5 would fit. Grrr! Right. So, got size 9 for my wife and bam, best fit and feels great. Easy return process for the first 2 orders without any worries. I have the same model and recommended them to her. Of course she listened to me (a first). Great boots!

Thank You.

After buying many other types of boots for our fire crews and hearing complaints about those boots decided to try HAIX and one of the best decisions made. Haven't received one complaint from anyone wearing these boots. Thank you so much.

Amazing value comfort and utility

I snagged these seconds during the annual inventory, so a coupon plus free shipping to wait a few days for shipping. Best money on boots I've spent yet. The only guess I have as to why these are seconds is that the toe has flashing that wasn't smoothed out.
I've worn them for 4 days straight at the firehouse and home, shoveling snow, responding to calls, chasing kids. They are very comfortable, cool enough in the station and warm at 10 degrees with lots of wind standing by on a structure fire.
I wear a 12 in boots and a 13 in sneakers/tennis shoes. I bought these in a 12 just like the (not very durable) Thorogoods they replaced. Perfect fit.

Haix boot review

First pair of haix I have ever owned.
pros: very comfortable boot. Easy to get set up. Good price. I have heard that they typically last 2-4 years.
Cons: warmer than I expected (great for now being winter, I’ll update this review this summer).
I wish the boot had a cleaner look something like the pro warrington station boot.

Small Miracle

I LOVE THIS BOOT. I can work for hours in comfort. No comparison to anything I have had previously. I have only had them a couple months but I have to say amazing. I cannot see the imperfection and they are appear A+ perfect. I am EMS and work for my local VFD

kristen k.


Excellent boot

this is my first pair of station boots, I have worn the firefighting boots in the past and they are excellent as well, Im still trying to find what make these factory seconds, but i hands down will never buy another brand of station boots again, do yourself and your feet a favor and buy these

Great Boots

I’ve had the same boots for 8 years and it was time to replace them. Some people I knew swear by these boots so I went ahead and took a chance. I love them! They are comfortable light, and feel good on my feet!

Bobby B.


Thank You.

Finally found a station boot that meets and exceeds not only the requirements of NFPA 1977 and our requirements and that our firefighters like. Excellent made product and outstanding customer service. Keep up the outstanding service.

Great Boots

I am a police K-9 officer and the training and working with a dog takes you into some areas where you need special boots. I got these about a week ago and do to being made of all leather, they are a little stiff yet but very comfortable and fit comfortably. I could not see any blemishes, marks or scuffs, as they were considered factory seconds. I have not tested the waterproof ability of these boots yet but hopefully they will be, as I occasionally have to walk through water up to four or five inches deep. These are really great boots and I would recommend them.



Best boots on the market

2nd pair in 8 years love the product.



Great boot

Well made station boot. I purchased this boot specifically for the NFPA 1977 certification. Very comfortable with a roomy toe box. Great food bed and arch support. Good ankle support and short break in period. I am using this on the job at a Structure FD with significant urban interface areas. My only concern is the zippers are getting tough to pull so time will tell how long they last.

Most comfortable duty/wildland boot combo

Had them as FF/EMT with Honolulu Fire Dept. Moved to Missouri and joined a volunteer department. Decided it was worth investing in boots for my own comfort. As soon as I slipped them on, I knew I had made the right choice. Thanks for manufacturing such a great boot.



Boot for everything

Second time buying Haix my first pair has been used for 3 years every day in my Virginia station, in the woods hunting, forest fires, well over 2k calls even hiking the planes in Wyoming on mule deer hunts. I still use the first pair to to HVAC work. Breaking them in takes a little bit but well worth it never had an issue with zippers tread or laces breaking. (Also great while on my Harley)
Will buy another pair in a few years!!

Great company! Decent boot.



Absolutely incredible

Currently I work as a Security Officer and EMT. I was referred to HAIX by a paramedic that I worked with, as I was wearing some cheap knockoff boots. 200 dollars later, I got my Airpower XR1s in the mail.
When I put them on and walked around in them, I hated how stiff and rigid the boots were. I wore them for 3 days and got huge blisters on my big and pinky toes on both sides. I contemplated returning them, but decided to keep going. I had a pair of Danners that broke in pretty quick a few years ago, so I figured it just needed time.
Within a week these boots became the most comfortable boots I've ever owned. Most daysuccessful, after standing or walking for 8 hours, my feet don't hurt like they usually did with cheap boots. These boots have resisted water, oils, soda, booze, diesel and so much more in the short amount of time I've been wearing them. I would definitely recommend these boots to anyone who needs a good pair of boots! I will definitely buy another pair when these wear out!

Great duty boots!

These boots are fantastic! I am a firefighter emt and I wear these boots everyday at work. They're comfortable and definitely feel like they belong on the job. I would say I am very comfortable with trusting these boots with my foot and ankle safety. The only issue I had with them is this, the insoles they come with are paper thin and offer no cushioning or support. You will need to replace them. The only other problem I had was the laces were pretty weak on them so I replaced mine. Both of these problems are very easy to fix and wouldnt come close to stopping me from buying another pair. Overall I would highly, highly recommend these boots.

Davis M.


Great boot

Been wearing these for past 3 years and absolutely love them. Great buy



Great insulated boots.

I'd ordered these after wearing the Rocky and Corcoran uninsulated boots for nearly a decade, so to be honest I wasn't prepared for what I got. They're sturdy, but warm!!



Good Boots

Boots showed up sooner than expected, still cannot find the imperfection that made them factory seconds. I work as an EMT, am going to paramedic school, and a volunteer firefighter. I wear these boots 5 to 6 days a week all day and have been comfortable since day one. I would recommend these to anyone on their feet all day.
