Station and EMS boot with NFPA certification
Designed for the EMT, Paramedic and First Responder, you need a boot that lets you act on a moment’s notice while at the same time giving your feet the comfort they crave when faced with long days on shift duty. The quick in and out feature of the laced in front zipper allows you the advantage of a custom fit boot that can also put on in a hurry. Just adjust the lacing for a fit personalized to you. Slip on, zip, and go.
Built with an ultra-light composite toe, HAIX Airpower® XR2 boots offer the ultimate in toe protection and comfort with its roomy toe box. It offers chemical and bloodborne pathogen protection, and electrical hazard protection. NFPA certified for emergency medical operations for the EMS responder, the Airpower® XR2 is also ASTM certified for electrical hazards. What more could you ask for in rescue boots you can also wear in the station?
Waterproof and Chemical Protection with CROSSTECH®
The HAIX Airpower® XR2 features a CROSSTECH® inner liner which allows your boot to be not only breathable, but durably waterproof. CROSSTECH® also offers the added benefits of chemical and bloodborne pathogen protection. Not only that, the breathable inner liner works together with the HAIX® climate system to keep your footwear dry and comfortable in hot or cold weather or on wet or dry days. No worries when having to work out in the rain or at a messy accident scene, your footwear will keep you protected and comfortable on all fronts.
Built in Arch Support
The HAIX Airpower® XR2 has much needed arch support built in to every boot. Proper arch support realigns the foot and ankle to their neutral position, helping, in many cases, to restore natural foot function. As a result, it will help alleviate problems in other parts of the body, like your knees and ankles. The cushioned insole offers all day wear comfort, especially when combined with the built in arch support.
Slip and Heat Resistant Soles and Quick Drying Insoles
The heat resistant soles of the HAIX Airpower® XR2 are extremely slip resistant as well as resistant to oil and fuel. Accident scenes, especially ones that involve vehicle fires, are not an issue as you don’t have to worry about your soles melting on hot asphalt or worry about exposing your soles to fuel and oil leaks. HAIX® soles keep you sure footed so you can focus on doing your job.
The insole’s moisture wicking properties guarantee to combat the issue of sweaty feet, especially after a long day on the job. Not only do they help to absorb foot sweat, the antibacterial properties help to fight foot odor and reduce the presence of fungus and bacteria. With comfort cushioning, the separate heel cup aids in keeping your foot in the correct position for foot health. HAIX® insoles and machine washable and quickly air dry so you can get a quick refresh and be back on the job in no time.
Sun Reflect Technology and Secura Liner®
European craftsmanship is unmistakable when you look at this boot. European leather guarantees your boots will stand the test of time. The added Sun Reflect technology in the leather of these safety boots prevents you boots from heating up on you when you are out in the sun. Your feet will feel the difference since cooler leather on the outside translates to cooler feet on the inside.
HAIX®’s patented Secura Liner® feature protects you from the irritation of liner pull out. Your inner liner stays securely in place since it is sealed along with the leather beneath the sole, and is not a “sock” that is glued in under the insole like you see in other boots. No other boot manufacturer offers this unique feature. Nothing worse than having your liner come out of the boot along with your foot. HAIX Airpower® XR2 is your first choice for a Station/EMS safety boot.

Just returned mine
This is the second pair I bought. Just not the right for for my feet. To loose, too bulky. Too expensive to keep trying....
Thank you for taking the time to give us feedback on the Airpower XR2. We are sorry to hear that you had trouble finding the correct size and that you had to return them for a second time. We hope you will consider giving HAIX another try in the future and if you have any issues with sizing, don't hesitate to call our customer service dept. or chat with us online.
You get what you pay for!
Do yourself a favor and fork over the extra money for these, if you're on the fence bite the bullet, you won't be disappointed. I have literally been wearing these since day 1, all day every day. No break-in period, lightweight, incredibly comfortable, craftsmanship is on point. absolutely zero complaints. Spend the time and get the laces just right and never worry about them again. I understand all the hype over these boots now and will be a customer for life!
We appreciate you sharing your feedback on the Airpower XR2. We are glad that you have found them to be lightweight, comfortable and well-made. Thank you for being such a loyal customer. Thank you for your service. Stay safe out there.
I can wear these all day! Great design, and the comfort is unmatched!
We appreciate you taking the time to give us feedback on the Airpower XR2. We are happy to hear that you like the design of these boots and have found them to be comfortable out on the job. Thanks for your service. Stay safe out there!
Like most have mentioned. These boots are comfy right outta the box. Slip on easily when you're on your way to a call and paired with good soles, you won't have any issues staying in them for the day. Only issue is that mine still squeak from the leather or whatever it is.
Thank you for taking the time to review the Airpower XR2. We are happy to hear that you have found them to be comfortable and easy to slide on when going out for a call. You may want to use some silicone-based polish to stop the squeaking. Hope that helps! Thanks again!
So good I bought 2 pair!
The first pair of boots I bought were the XR1s. Using them for grass/brush fires I found out how comfortable they were, so I got a pair of XR2s for station wear. Great boots. You will not be disappointed.
First of all, thank you so much for your loyalty to our brand. We are very happy to hear that you liked the Airpower XR1 so much that you purchased the Airpower XR2's as well. We appreciate your feedback and hope both pairs of boots will continue to serve you well on the job.
Well engineered and comfortable
I bought these boots from HaixUSA.com without ever trying a pair on which is something that is outside of my comfort zone. I've read numerous reviews and spoke to some people who have worn them. The only negative review that I ever heard was from a coworker who had problems with fallen arches and flat feet and that was resolved with an aftermarket insole. Now for my personal review and opinion; I've worn these boots for 12 hour shifts and have nothing but great things to say about the comfort, quality and overall design and appearance. They fit perfectly right out of the box. They seemed somewhat stiff the first couple of days but were by no means uncomfortable. After 3 or 4 shifts, they feel perfect. The composite toe provides protection without adding weight. I don't like the steel toe boots because of the added weight and the fact that they stay really cold in the winter and require thicker socks to keep your feet warm. These boots are also true to size. I normally wear a size 9.5 medium and ordered these boots in the same size and they fit perfectly. They take a polish and shine very well and I have not had any problems with them being weatherproof as I have used them in rain and snow and have always had warm, dry feet which is something that I can't say about other brands that I've worn (5.11 and Bates). They are not the cheapest boots around, however, you should consider how much time you spend on your feet and the level of comfort and protection some of the others provide. I signed up for the email newsletters and got a 15% discount code along with free FedEx Ground shipping. I had the boots on my feet less than a week after ordering them. The soles are quiet and do not squeak and provide solid traction on snow, ice and wet, slippery floors. I've had many complements on them and the only "negative" things I've heard from coworkers is the price. My response to them is that you just can't beat German engineering. Thank you for making a quality product!
We really appreciate you taking the time to share your experience with the Airpower XR2. It is one of our top of the line boots and also one of our top sellers. We are happy to hear that you have found these boots to be comfortable even after working 12 hours shifts. We pride ourselves on making quality footwear and it is good to know that they are serving you well. Thank you for recommending these boots to your coworkers and standing behind our products!
Great Boot, but
I love these boots so much that I bought a second pair to rotate them daily. They came out of the box comfortable. Flat out fantastic boots. Only one problem. The zipper on the right boot on both pair, bind up in the leather backing every time I unzip them. I have no idea why. It took me ten minutes one day to get the boot off. Again I have absolutely no idea why.
Thank you for taking the time to give us feedback on the Airpower XR2. It is one of our most popular boots and we are happy to hear that you find them to be comfortable for work so much so that you bought a second pair! I am sending you two replacement zippers, so hopefully that will fix the problem. We appreciate your loyalty.
Comfort right out of the box
I purchased these boots without ever trying them on, a behavior I don't like. I am a size 13 medium and wanted a zipper boot. I was able to get many years out of a Red Wing boot which I had to install the zipper myself. I was never able to get a secure tight fit.
Anyhow, I needed a boot that already had the zipper in it. I wear my Airpower XR2's ten to 12 hours at a time. My feet do not sweat. The duty boots were comfortable from day one! I did not have to make any adjustments. I am not sure I would be able to figure out to tighten the boots if needed though. Haix includes a helpful packet that explains the boot tightening procedure along with other helpful information regarding the boot and it's maintenance.
Overall, I have only had the boot a short time. I am very pleased so far.
We are so happy to hear that you are pleased with your purchase of the Airpower XR2 and that you found them to be comfortable right out of the box. We appreciate you sharing your experience with us and hope the boots will continue to serve you well in the future.
This is the second pair of boots I've bought. My first pair was in 2008 and still have another 2 years or more, and haven't been rebuilt. I wore them 20 or more days a month as a Firefighter/ Paramedic on a 24/48 shift. They show wear but I can shine them and they'll look brand new. This is one of the best pairs of boots I've ever owned. My girlfriend and daughter both have a pair for work. I love these and will probably never buy any other boots for working in EMS. Maybe this pair can get me to retirement. LOL I'm going to find out. GREAT BOOTS. Thank you Haix.
Thank you so much for the positive feedback on the Airpower XR2. We are happy to hear that our boots have served you well over the past two years. We certainly hope this new pair will take you into retirement. It's also good to know that you have made it a family affair by getting your girlfriend and daughter in a pair of HAIX. We appreciate your loyalty and hope you will continue to be a customer in the future.
Good boot so far
Was impressed with how comfortable these boots were on day 1. So far so good.
Thanks for giving us your feedback on the Airpower XR2. It is good that you found them to be so comfortable right out of the box. We hope they continue to serve you well in the future.
The most comfortable and economic boot on the market.
Will not wear any other boot.
It's great to hear that your Airpower XR2's are working out well for you. We appreciate you taking the time to share your experience with us. Thank you for everything you do and for being such a loyal customer!
