Dual Purpose Boot with NFPA certification
Developed with the wildland firefighter in mind, these boots can take you to the fire line and back with the comfort you need when logging long hours in the station. A dual purpose boot that is NFPA certified for wildland firefighting and EMS, you have the convenience of two boots in one.
Anatomically constructed and built with a lightweight composite toe, HAIX® Airpower XR1 boots give your feet plenty of room to move around while protecting them from toe impact and compression because there is nothing worse than a protective toe that pinches or restricts your movement.
Built in Arch Support
The HAIX® Airpower XR1's built in arch support provides much needed support to the arch, which takes the brunt of the pressure when standing. Proper support of the arch helps to prevent foot pain when on your feet all day and possible foot problems later on.
The newly developed cushioned insole offers the ultimate in comfort, especially when combined with the built in arch support. And with the laced in zipper system, any firefighter can adjust the lacing for a more personal fit while enjoying the benefits of a quick in and out boot. Because on the job, seconds matter.
Waterproof and Sun Reflect technology
The HAIX® Airpower XR1 is both waterproof and breathable with the added benefit of chemical and bloodborne pathogen protection. Working in tandem with the HAIX® climate system, your feet will stay dry, comfortable, and protected –even in times of extreme exposure to water.
The Airpower XR1 offers all of the HAIX® quality you have come to expect for long lasting comfort and durability. The all leather upper material uses Sun Reflect technology which reduces the solar heating effect and keeps feet cool by reflecting the sun’s rays.
Because the soles, heels, and uppers are also heat resistant, it is less likely to lead to boot separation which is a very common case in firefighting situations. Heat resistance keeps the whole boot functional without melting or delaminating.
Slip Resistant Soles and Quick Drying Insoles
The soles of the HAIX® Airpower XR1 are extremely slip resistant which offers an effective grip when exposed to water and oil. So even when you’re on a rescue and you’re running on tile, hardwood, or linoleum flooring, your shoe will be able to grab hold. The insoles are anatomically formed to deliver a perfect fit and are made to provide excellent moisture absorption and as well as quick drying qualities. When your insoles get completely dirty after long days on duty, all you need to do is throw then in the wash, air dry, and they’ll be ready the next day’s work.
Secura Liner® and CROSSTECH® Protected
Secura Liner® guarantees that your boots will never pull out or wrinkle over time. The CROSSTECH® material in the inner liner also ensures that the gear is comfortable and safe against blood and body fluids.

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.
Thank you for your review of the Airpower XR1, FS. We are happy that you have found these boots to be comfortable even though they were a little stiff out of the box. This is because of the full-grain leather used throughout which can add some break-in time. We are sure you will also love the waterproof feature of these boots which will keep you dry and protected. We appreciate your recommendation and your loyalty to the HAIX brand.
Best boots on the market
2nd pair in 8 years love the product.
Thank you for your review of the Airpower XR1, FS. We are pleased that you love our boots and that they have served you well over the last eight years. We appreciate your loyalty to the HAIX brand and hope you will remain a loyal customer for years to come!
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.
We appreciate you taking the time to review of the Airpower XR1, FS. We are happy to hear that your feet our comfortable and supported while on duty. If you have any further problems with the zippers, don't hesitate to call our Customer Service Dept. to assist you in finding a solution to the problem. Thank you for your service and for choosing HAIX!
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.
Thank you for taking the time to review the Airpower XR1, FS. It's good to hear that you are happy with the high quality of our boots. We hope they continue to serve you well in the future.
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!!
Thank you for taking the time to review the Airpower XR1, FS. We are happy to hear that they have served you well in various activities while on duty. These boots can take a while to break in due to the full grain leather used throughout but we are glad that you waited it out. We appreciate you loyalty to HAIX. Stay safe out there!
Great company! Decent boot.
Thanks for your feedback on the Airpower XR1, FS. Glad you like the boot and our company! We appreciate your support!
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!
We appreciate you taking the time to share your experience with us on the Airpower XR1, FS. These boots can take a little longer to break in, due to the thick, full grain
leather used throughout so we are happy to hear you stuck with them and now find these to be the most comfortable work boots that you've ever worn. Thank you for recommendations and your customer loyalty.
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.
We appreciate you taking the time to share your experience with us. We are happy to hear that the boots have served you well on the job. Sorry for the minor issues with the insoles and the laces but we appreciate you not letting it ruin your opinion of the overall quality of the boot. Thanks for all you do. Stay safe out there!
Been wearing these for past 3 years and absolutely love them. Great buy
Thank you so much for the positive feedback on your Airpower XR1, FS. We are happy to hear that they have served you well for the past three years and hope they will continue to do so in the future!
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!!
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.
