HAIX’s Airpower XR2 is a certified EMS boot ready for service. It is waterproof and puncture-resistant—offering all-around protection on the job.
The Airpower XR2 is equipped with a lighter-weight composite toe cap—helping to reduce foot and leg fatigue while still meeting the highest level of safety requirements.
The Airpower XR2 lining features waterproof CROSSTECH® technology, offering protection against potentially hazardous chemicals, bodily fluids and bloodborne pathogens.
The Airpower XR2 integrated slip resistant sole is EH rated—and won't melt on hot pavement or degrade through contact with oils, fuels and chemicals.
Lightweight, breathable and cushioned micro fiber insoles absorb perspiration to keep feet dry. Machine wash, and occasionally replace, to maintain comfort.
HAIX unique lacing system provides a personalized, secure fit. The convenient front zipper allows wearers to adjust laces once to their preferred fit and feel, then slip on, zip up and go.
Built-in arch support evenly distributes bodyweight—relieving leg and foot fatigue, stress and pain. Less leg stress means less stress on you.
HAIX Climate System utilizes special foams between lining and leather for moisture absorption. Vent holes at the top of the boot release moist air and circulate fresh air with every step.
Excellent Boots and Comfy After Break In Period!
Starting 2 years ago I started using Haix. Always wanted the XR2 or XR1. A lot of coworkers at my FD and Ambulance Service use these and say great things.
1.) Very stiff and uncomfortable at first then after my initial usual break in period they fit really great and are comfy. Only wish sole insert were more foamy/cushioned.
2.) I like the ratings for safety! UL, NFPA, Etc....
3.) Besides super expensive shipping took forever ordered them on Friday with regular shipping and got them 6 days later. Just like galls, the fire store, etc they took forever to be delivered which for amount of money you pay and a long delivery time is dissatisfying.
3.) High quality boots and durable my last safety composite eagles mid lasted 3 years.
Overall really great product and comfy AFTER BREAK IN PERIOD, so be patient. Fit is expected but boot are narrow so wide is best if you have any wide, think your foots wide, need to be in and out e.g (donning fire ensamble).
Haix makes the best boots out there!
I have been a long time customer of Haix. I have tried quite a few different styles but the ones I love most are the XR2. They fit well, are very supportive and are extremely rugged. Without boring anyone on all the specifics that this boot has to offer, I will say that as a fulltime Firefighter/EMT working 24 hour shifts, I have put these boots through the ringer....mud, water, brush fires, you name it, and they always come back for more. On top of it all, at the end of my shift, they are still comfortable. I have gout in my feet and ankles, which over the years has caused an increase of arthritis. These boots give me the support to help me on those days that normal boots would be extremely painful. Other people, doctors included all think I'm crazy, but even with their weight and rigidity, they have given me the support I needed. I have also purchased quite a few "seconds" too, and to be honest, I cannot find the issues causing these to be seconds. This just shows the level of care and quality control Haix has. Since the seconds aren't always available in my size, when they do come available, I always grab an extra pair and put them in the closet. Thanks Haix, keep up the great work!!!Read more
The Premier Boot For The Fire Service
I have trusted Haix XR2 boots for many years now. The lightweight, extremely comfortable feel helps me get through the long days on my feet at the station. The boot offers great stability on any terrain and is very durable. I will continue to buy this footwear for the rest of my career! Thanks Haix!Read more
These boots have been by far the best boots i have ever purchased. They are so comfortable and are true to fix to your sneaker size. My right foot was a llitle too snug and haix send me a new pair of insoles and did the trick. Customer service is by far the best i have ever experienced. You definitely can shop confidently here!Read more
Excellent boots, one complaint
I purchased these boots after years of consideration. I was previously only purchasing Red Wings. I love the XR2 boot and am very happy with my purchase. You can’t beat the way this boot forms to your foot. The only complaint I have is the zippers on mine get caught on the extra leather. I alleviated this by trimming some of the leather. This may have been why mine were noted to be factory seconds. This is the only reason why so did not give a 10. I may review in a few months to dicusss the durability as I have only had my boots for about a week. I definitely recommend the XR2 to anyone in EMS.Read more
I want to give these a 10/10 out of the gate. I am still breaking these boots in. I am finding that the zipper keeps getting caught on the flaps inside the shoe making it difficult to unzip. I have no issue zipping up, but when taking them off or unzipping I find is difficult. I assume these will wear in as the shoes relax but it's very frustrating right now. On'y been wearing them daily for about a week, and they get more comfortable each day.Read more
Great boots poor zippers and insoles
Great station boots but I have only had them a little over a week the zippers already broke very poor very poor quality not like the ones I used to get for muni flight boots , I worked I festival where I was on my feet all day they started hurting my feet about half way through some better insoles maybe gel would be great , on the up side my feet do stay cool and dry , if they could fix the zipper and insole issue Very comfortable .Read more
Excellent with a catch.
I ordered these because I recently got hired to do full time EMS work on top of volunteering, and wanted more protection and durability than what my Bates could offer me. My Bates were 13's so I ordered the same size, when they arrived I discovered that they were a size too small. However, it was exactly what I wanted and the quality was excellent. Returned them to order a size up, no big deal. The return process was very smooth!Read more
Purchased these boots after several coworkers recommended them. I was still a bit leery because my feet tend to sweat in the waterproof boots I have worn in the past. After wearing my Airpower XR2 boots for several months now, I can say that these are the most comfortable boots I have ever owned. They are waterproof and breathable. My feet stay dry and don't get hot or sweat. I will definitely be buying another pair.Read more
These boots have been nothing but fantastic. I ordered the factory seconds, and have held up well over the last couple months. I wore the the R1's for 2 years, and they were heavy, and uncomfortable on my feet, and I couldn't add arch supports as they made the boot too tight. I was skeptical to order another pair but heard about XR2's and figured why not. XR2's are the complete opposite. I can wear them all day, my feet are not in pain, or exhausted, and I feel like I have much better arch support then before.Read more
