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.

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!
We appreciate you taking the time to review the Airpower XR2, FS. We are happy that these boots are offering you more durability on the job and that you are pleased with the quality of the product. These boots do tend to run true to size in both length and width. Sorry to hear that you ordered the wrong size initially, but we are glad that you found the return process to be easy. We hope you will continue to be a loyal HAIX customer in the future. Thanks for your service!
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.
Thank you for sharing your experience with the Airpower XR2, FS. We are very happy to hear that these boots have kept your feet dry and comfortable while on the job. We hope they continue to serve you well in the future. We appreciate your loyalty to the HAIX brand. Stay safe out there!
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.
Thank you for giving us your feedback on the Airpower XR1. We are happy to hear that they are treating your feet well so far while on duty. These boots are made with a more relaxed arch support so that could be why you find them to be much more comfortable than the R1's. We are so glad you decided to give HAIX another try and that you have had great results. We hope you'll continue to be a loyal customer in the future.
