Multi-Purpose Shoes with Innovative Functionality
The Black Eagle® Athletic 11 High Side Zip Desert is an extra-light boot designed to be worn anywhere – on or off duty. Built metal-free to be friendly with airports, it combines the comfort of an athletic shoe with the durability of German design.
Built in Heel Cushions, Anti Slip Soles, and Stone Shield
We made sure to add extra cushioning in the heel, and spring-back material to increase the shock absorption and comfort; Perfect for both standing long hours on cement, or running hard across it.
The Pronation and Supination support keeps the bones of your foot and ankle in their ideal positions, distributing weight evenly while you stand. This support helps prevent injury, and reduces the aches and pains that might otherwise spread across your body after being on your feet all day.
The Anti-slip soles are made with a unique tread design and rubber blend, to help grip many surfaces. They’re resistant to oil and gasoline, and will not mark up your floor.
Within the sole itself is a sturdy Stone Shield, to protect your feet from sharp stones or other obsticals you could encounter on uncertain terrain. It reduces the peircing ability, to keep your steps sure.
2-Zone Lacing and Zipper Combination
The Black Eagle® Athletic 11 High Side Zip Desert features the patented Two Zone lacing system which allows you to easily adjust the upper and lower parts of your boot’s laces so that it can snugly hug every part of your foot, for maximum comfort and protection.
Just slide the boot on, zip it up, and adjust the laces to fit comfortably on your foot and ankle. After that, you’ll be able to get in and out of your boot as fast as you need – safe feet are just a zip away.
Flexible Ankle Protection
With Pronation and Supination support already built in, your ankles are further protected by a sturdy side-pad, to reduce injury from any outer blow that may come from performing active duty work.
The combination of leather and textile uppers makes this footwear flexible and breathable, to hug your feet wherever you need to go.

These boots are RIDICULOUSLY comfortable, not to mention casually stylish. Whatever your day's activity, they serve their purpose well. You could walk around a theme park all day or even jog in them and you wouldn't regret it. A bit pricey, but you're paying for quality. Only complaint, the tongue does protrude out, which in turn pushes your pant leg out slightly. That said, it's not enough of a drawback to deter me a second purchase. I'll likely buy the black color of the same boot in the near future.

These boots are excellent quality. Very true to size and very comfortable. Very, very little break-in time. Comfortable all day long. Feet stay relatively dry after a full shift. Outsole is quality rubber. My feet are flat, but these boots really do support my feet. And the pronation support really works. These boots are worth every penny. Glad I found out about Haix!
