Insole, Lining and Footbed
The Secura Liner® keeps feet cool with its breathable material made of GORE-TEX®, and ensures that your inner boot lining will not wrinkle, pull up, or pull loose from your boot. The inner liner is waterproof and useful for keeping feet at a balanced temperature. The Climate System ensures a continuous air circulation in the footwear. ‘With every step, fresh air will be pumped into the boots and heat will be pressed out of boots through the vent holes at the top of the boot.
Designed by HAIX®, the Arch Support System keeps your foot properly supported, and protects its natural curvature, making the boot comfortable to wear for extended periods of time.

I have had the boots for less than a week so they may get better with more wear. So far my only experience with the boots is that they are very stiff. They give great support, but they bend too in a weird spot that puts a lot of pressure on the metatarsal area due to how stiff the toe box is that is reinforced beyond where the composite toe is. I am hoping that with wear that they will bend differently. Otherwise they seem like a very well built boot that gives a lot of support.
Get good socks
Took about a week to break in for me. A couple stiff spots that sort of dig into my calf. Now after working in them, they are very comfortable. For me it was finding out how tight to crank the laces and then getting nice boot socks made the difference for me.
Exactly what I was looking for
Boot was just what I wanted. First and foremost it is extremely well built and have been worn for two months now with no signs of wear. They broke in nicely and minimal discomfort from composite toe quickly vanished. All around a very well constructed and thought out boot. My one minor dislike is the sole of the shoe could be a little sturdier. I am not a professional arborist but work on a golf course and my primary job in the winter months is tree removal. This requires a lot more walking than a typical tree removal company and the sole of the shoe is less rigid than a good pair of hiking/backpacking boots. Just takes some getting used to. All in all an excellent and comfortable boot that provides extremely improved safety from my past footwear selections. Money well spent.

one tough boot
I got these from the seconds area and were not my first choice of the Haix boots but the only pair in my size. Overall really like them, excellent foot bed, but the top of my feet are sore, these boots have very thick tough upper leather and will take time to break in. The seconds on these boots was some Brown leather paint missing around the front safety toe, Order a half size smaller size than your normal for a good for. Overall very high quality boot for a great price.
We appreciate you taking the time to share your experience with us about the Airpower XR200, FS. These boots can take a little longer to break in, due to the thick, full grain leather used throughout but we are happy to hear that they have served you well so far and hope they will continue to do so in the future.
