Versatile Lightweight Shoes for On and Off Duty Use
The Black Eagle® Athletic 10 High is the perfect lightweight boot that can be worn whether you are on duty or not. It combines the best running shoe technology with state-of-the-art functionality making it the ideal footwear to wear indoors or outdoors. Once you put them on, you’ll notice all the unique features that these boots offer. Anyone who works in an extremely active job, requiring hours on your feet will appreciate the difference.
Light Microfiber Material and HAIX® Climate System
The HAIX® Climate System built in the Black Eagle® Athletic 10 High ensures that your feet are kept at a comfortable temperature at all times with an air circulation process that allows your feet to stay warm under cold conditions and cool under hot conditions. The light microfiber upper material just adds more to the comfort. With the two combined, it makes for the perfect boots that can be worn anywhere without any worry of it dragging you down.
Shock Absorbent Heel with Pronation and Supination Support
One thing that makes the HAIX Black Eagle® Athletic 10 High so comfortable is its pronation and supination support. The pronation and supination support work hand in hand to prevent the arch from collapsing inward and ensures an even distribution of weight in your foot thereby helping to protect you from possible foot injury. The cushioned shock absorbent heel along with the strong spring-back material incorporated into the forefoot area allows for the most efficient use of energy. And the additional built in stone shield protects your feet from feeling every rock or stone underfoot.
Waterproof GORE-TEX® and 2-Zone Lacing System
You never know what you’ll be needed to do, or under what conditions, when outside on the job The GORE-TEX® laminate could really come in handy since it’s what makes the boots waterproof. And should it get wet on the outside, you don’t have to worry, because with GORETEX®, you’re protected. And you don’t have to worry about the inside of you boots, since the cushiony, moisture-absorbent insole with AIRFLOW channels ensure that your feet are always feeling dry. The 2-Zone lacing allows you to adjust your laces so that it fits snugly to your personal taste. You can adjust the lacing for more support in the ankle, and looser through the forefoot, or tighter in the forefoot with a little more give in the ankle area. Because when you’re working, time counts and the last thing you want to think about are your laces.
Anti-Slip Soles and Comfortable Insoles
The Black Eagle® Athletic 10 High has multi-directional anti-slip soles which lets you run or walk with ease without the worry of slipping. So whether you need to start, stop, and turn quickly, you’ll never slip thanks to this feature. The rubber sole is resistant to oil and gasoline and does not mark up your floor. The tough exterior of this boot is complemented by its comfortable insole which provides the best cushion so your feet don’t hurt even after standing for long periods during the day.
Ankle Shield and Metal Free
The ankle protective side pads ensure that your ankles are protected from shocks and blows. It’s always good to stay protected since your ankle area is the most vulnerable to impact injuries. The HAIX Black Eagle® Athletic 10 High is also metal free. So you don’t have the extra hassle when working around metal detectors or other electromagnetic equipment. Try them on, we think you will be happy you did.

Nice light boot
I've had these boots now for 3 weeks. I was very impressed with the weight and how comfortable they are. The sole was what sold me on the boot. It's aggressive and I'm hoping that I'll get more than a year out of the tred. I've worn the gortex side zip Bates boots for the last 14 years and they are a good boot but the sole doesn't last long at all. Unfortunately with Haix, I had to choose between the side zip or the Goretex. Not an easy choice. I'm probably going to have to send them back soon. I took the insole out today and found that in multiple spots were my heel rubs that the lining of the boot has a hole in them. I had really high expectations for these boots but I'm finding that I may have to shop around more or upgrade to a different Haix boot.
We appreciate you taking the time to review the Black Eagle Athletic 10 High. We are happy to hear that you found them to be comfortable and lightweight out of the box. We apologize that the lining wore out so quickly. We believe it may have been a manufacturing defect on that specific pair of boots. Customer Service has been in contact with you and we believe that this matter has been resolved to your satisfaction.
Own them all, high, mid & low
I own all the Haix Black Eagle Athletic's. Low, mid (2 pair) and high. Each pair has its use that I wear them for. Quality and comfort is why I buy them.
Thank you for taking the time to share your experience with us. We are happy to hear that the Black Eagle Athletic line has served your needs and that you find them to be comfortable and of high quality. We appreciate your loyalty and support.
This is the best station boot that I have tried. They fit wonderful, very little break in time. They do have a little noise to them as Phil G states, and I believe that is from the liner/materials itself around the foot moving separately, if this was secured a little bit better the sound would not occur, but may null the waterproofing of the boot with holes. Other than that, great boot to wear.
Thanks for the feedback! Applying some silicone based polish on the boots may help with the noise that comes from the movement of the leather.
Amazingly comfortable... but
I've had these boots now for about 8 months. They are by far the most comfortable boots I have ever had. However, they are anything but waterproof. My feet get wet constantly, even walking through wet grass. Also, the soles are starting to separate from the boot in the same spot on both feet.
Matt, we're very sorry to hear about your issue. Please contact customer service at email@example.com or 866-344-4249 as they would be happy to help.
Very nice boot and fits like a glove. Would recommend this boot to firefighters as a station wear or utility boot.
Best boot I've ever worn
These boots are the best thing since sliced bread. I bought a pair of the HAIX Black Eagle Athletic 10 High boots in Nov 2014 at a Trade Show put on for Ground Search & Rescue. They are very comfortable and amazingly lightweight yet provide the flexibility and support I need when on a search . My only regret is that the toe cap on both boots has ripped at the outer side seam. I still wear them however they are no longer waterproof. They are only a little over 15 Months old and the rest of the boot is still in amazing shape. Is their a warranty against such a defect on these boots?
Thanks for takiing the time to write a review and share you experience with us. We're glad to hear that the boots are working out so well for you. Our Black Eagle series carry a 2 year warranty. Please call customer service at 866-344-4249 as they would be happy to assist you with the toe cap issue.
black eagle 10
The boots are very light weight and comfortable. The only problem I have is that they are noisy. I walked into court the other day and everyones head turned and looked at me. It sounded like I had flip flops on. This can be a problem when I am out sneaking around in the neighborhoods. But other then that very comfortable.
Thanks for taking the time to write a review, we appreciate your feedback. We are sorry to hear that your boots are noisy. Please contact Tricia in customer service about your issue as she would be happy to help resolve this. Please call Tricia in Customer Service at 1-866-344-4249
I've worn just about every boot brand in the past, and these are the lightest, most comfortable boots I've ever worn. If this boot had a side zipper and was all black (basically a model 11 with Gortex), it would be the perfect tactical boot.
I've worn this boot for 8 years straight as a first responder in the desert heat. It's a heavy boot but superior quality. 8 years! I'm only replacing now because I've worn the sole out. Guys replace their other boots in less than a year. I recommend these boots to everyone.
Great boot/athletic shoe
So far they are excellent,very comfortable and LIGHT.. I own 5 pairs of Haix mostly for work(firefighting ) and most of the boots I have are a little on the heavy side...Not these..love them but need to see how they hold up while deer or pheasant hunting..Now if they would just offer the safety toe version in the USA...??
Greatest boot EVER!!!
I'm a corrections officer which means I'm on my feet more than I'm not. I would prefer to run in these boots more than I would in my sneakers!!!! The only thing I have a gripe about is the color scheme.......many of us are required to wear all black shoes.....I was so impressed with how these boots felt I colored the blue over with black marker. It would be nice if Haix would offer a different color scheme in all black.
Either way Haix you have a new life long customer!!!
Hey Kevin, glad to hear that you are enjoying your new Haix boots. We have another model that is all black (except for logo on tongue of boot), the Athletic 11 High Side Zip. The image looks like the side may have gray, but it is only a light reflection during photography. Other differences from this boot and the Athletic 10 High are the side zip and no GORTEX on the 11.
Fits like a glove..., a boot you will Love.
There is a difference when you say; "this is the best boot I've ever worn.", verses; "This is the first boot I forget I have on." You've heard it all, but, I must say again, I totally forget that I have a boot on when wearing the "Black Eagle Athletic 10 High." I just knew I would be taking them back, but I was totally wrong. I can only describe them this way; they literally fit like a glove. You will not believe the comfort and you'll find yourself wanting a second pair as backup, I did, bought a second pair. The "Black Eagle Athletic 10 High" is extremely durable, yet so light weight. I found myself scratching my head time and again over the technology. I personally don't see how anyone will be disappointed with this boot. If you really want to express your appreciation for your Firefighters, present them with a pair of "Black Eagle Athletic 10 High" as an appreciation gift at your next annual appreciation banquet. As volunteer firefighters they all literally were talking about how much they love their gift months after receiving them. HAIX made me look real good, when in reality, they are the people who really deserve the credit. Thanks HAIX for this outstanding product. Stan - Fire Chief - Columbia Lakes VFD, TX
