Lightweight Running Shoe Technology and Cutting-edge Performance

The Black Eagle® line is designed with your needs in mind. Combining running shoe technology with innovative functional features, HAIX Black Eagle® Athletic 2.0 T High Side Zip offer one of the lightest and most breathable side zip tactical boots out there. Made to be worn indoors or out, these black tactical boots are built for comfort and incorporate many unique features you didn't even know you needed.

Durable, Shock Absorbent Heel with Built-in Support

Designed for speed and constructed for durability, HAIX Black Eagle® Athletic 2.0 T High Side Zip tactical boots have what it takes while you put them through their paces. The cushioning in the heel area will give you just the right amount of shock absorption while the strong spring-back material in the forefoot allows for the most efficient use of energy. And with built in pronation and supination support, your foot stays ideally positioned to keep weight distributed evenly throughout which is so important with regard to your foot health.

Metal-free with Slip-resistant Soles

The long-lasting and durable sole of the Black Eagle® line incorporates a special rubber and tread design that provides excellent multi-directional anti-slip grip on many surfaces, even in wet or cold weather. What does multi-directional anti-slip mean for you? It means you can start, stop, and turn on a dime without worrying about losing your footing. The soles are resistant to oil and gasoline, are antistatic, and promises not to mark up your floors. These police boots are airport friendly since Black Eagle® Athletic 2.0 T High Side Zip is entirely metal free too.

Highly breathable with HAIX® Climate System and Cushioned, Moisture-wicking Insoles

Black Eagle® Athletic 2.0 T High Side Zip features a super light microfiber design which is extremely breathable when paired with the built in HAIX® Climate System, your feet will stay comfortable indoors and out, even in hotter temperatures. The removable antibacterial insole also provides ample support and a cushiony feel for a comfort fit day in and day out.

2-Zone Lacing System with Side Zip for a Custom Fit

The patented 2-Zone Lacing System allows independent adjustment between the upper and lower part of these SWAT boots, so you can get a fit tailored just for you. The addition of the built-in side zip allows you to fix it and forget it. Once adjusted, you have quick in and out convenience every time. We also added side pads which protects your sensitive ankle area from shocks and blows.

Extended Limited Warranty

The optional add-on Black Eagle® extended limited warranty makes choosing this line an almost a no brainer. After trying the Black Eagles, HAIX® may just be the last brand you'll ever buy.

  • Also available as low
  • HX Design element made of tear resistant PU material covers the midfoot and transfers traction forces of the lacing elements

Good boots and good company

Just received these boots and they appear to be well made and very comfortable. As a previous reviewer commented, they are rather narrow in fit and appearance. Quick delivery and follow-up by this company. I was impressed as this is lacking in many companies these days.

Best boots ive ever owned

These have been very comfortable boot, and have a great default insole. Only reason I do not give them a 10 is because these boots are not available in the wide and thus are a bit tight on my pinky toe. But overall it isnt something painful or anything. Also I got the regular instead of the water proof by mistakes.

Incredibly Comfortable

I cannot believe how comfortable these boots are. I am wearing them for 12hr shifts and I am on my feet for 90% of the time at work. They are light and haven't needed breaking in at all. The fit is excellent too. I will certainly be buying more.

23 Jul 2018

A GREAT Workboot!

Great cross trainer fit. Very light fitting. I own these and a heavier insulated Haix boot for colder weather. Huge fan! A very nice boot!

22 Jul 2018

Give them time

I started with the Athletic 1.0 and wanted to reorder but they are discontinued. So I purchased the 2.0. I was a little disheartened initially in the break in process but now I’m pleased. Just give them time people.

Great tac boot

Would give it a ten but just wish it had a composite toe and goretex. Even though it would drive the cost up I would pay for these features. Also wish it was more waterproof.

Overall great boot, but need those features for my work. Should of looked more into the features. May consider an exchange as these boots are unwearable for my intended purpose.

Hi Warren,

We appreciate your feedback on the Black Eagle Athletic 2.0 T High Side Zip. We are happy to hear that you think this is a great boot but we are sorry to hear it will not fit your needs. We currently do have a GORE-TEX version that is all black leather, waterproof, the Black Eagle Tactical 2.0 GTX Hight, but it does not have a side-zip. We are working on having a side zip version in our product line in the near future. We hope once this is available, you will consider HAIX again. Stay safe out there!

I have had Haix hazmat boots back in the day and I love them! Now that I am in law enforcement, i decided to see how they were for the law enforcement side. They are by far one of the most comfiest and breathable boots i have ever worn. They had a very quick break in period and now I just bought the tennis shoe style ones for when i do bike patrol. Definitely still a great product and will continue to buy from them in the future!!

10 Jul 2018

Recent purchase

Excellent excellent boot. I don’t see myself ever changing to another boot. Very comfortable,easy to put them in and take off and super lite.

9 Apr 2018


I had tried the Protector Ultra Primes but somthing about the fit of the shoe just wouldn't work for my foot. I opted for a lighter / thinner walled shoe in these Athletic 2.0 Zips in the same size and have had no issues and they are very comfortable. Considering a second pair if they can hold up durability wise.

Blown Away by Fit and Comfort!

As a retired United States Marine, former Police Officer and now a Gunsmith-I have been professionally wearing tactical style boots for over 28 years. I have NEVER worn a boot as comfortable as these! I am on my feet all day and my feet feel fantastic. I wear them at work, in casual clothes and in firearm and range competition. Tough exterior-looks fantastic today as when I purchased them!

12 Feb 2018

Not overly impressed

9 Feb 2018

Fricken awesome!!!!

First off... I didn't put 10/excellent because there is always room for improvement. For me though, I am blown away with your product!!! I've been wearing boots for most of my life and coming across your product makes me want to cry for joy! They feel great and they look great... I've been on them for 2 weeks or so and breaking them in makes it feel even better!
Another thing, Your customer service is excellent!!! While purchasing these bad boys I was being helped on the chat and who ever that person was did a great job with assisting me. I need to buy who ever that was a drink!
Thank you guys for everything! You guys are definitely my go to for footwear! Thank you!!!

Admin 9 Feb 2018


Thank you for your feedback on the Black Eagle Athletic 2.0 T High Side Zip. We are so happy to hear that this boot has exceeded your expectations from the style to comfort level. Our boots can take up to two weeks to break-in, due to the full-grain leather used throughout but we are glad that they are even better each time you wear them. We pride ourselves on excellent customer service and we are so pleased that we were able to help you with your purchase through the live chat. We appreciate your loyalty to the HAIX brand!

Black Eagle Athletic 2.0 T High Side Zip

The best breathable jungle boot type I've ever owned. I work in a large facility indoors that requires kinetic physicality in emergency situations and running to emergencies and they haven't let me down! As well with the zip they are extremely fast to get on and off. Highly recommend!

Admin 12 Dec 2017

Best boots for urban terrain!

I have bought a lot of tactical brand of boots for the last 13 years, and these Eagle Athletic boots go beyond expectations. I am a Police officer for the city of Chicago, and these boots are perfect for the streets, I get into foot chases, climb fences and walk through hard surfaces. I own the previous pair which have held up for two years and are in good shape. I purchased the 2.0, and the new upgrade is even better. 2.0 version is more slim and not so chunky and more of a true athletic design to a gym shoe/boot. I hate wearing low top boots for duty, so these side zippers make it so much easier to take on and off. Boots are very comfortable after the break in stage, very light and very durable. Overall it is a excellent rugged boot that doesn't look too much like a boot. Hope the Desert Eagle boots al so get a upgrade.

Admin 21 Aug 2017

Hi Rich,

Great Boots

I love these boots. I walk on concrete for 12 hour shifts. They breathe and my feet do not get over heated and they are very comfortable. I have been wearing them for a couple of weeks now and was very impressed that they were so comfortable the first time wearing them.

Admin 13 Jul 2017

Very comfortable boot

I've been wearing these boots for work for about 3 months now and they are by far the most comfortable boots I've ever owned. They are very breathable and I love the side-zip. I wish they made a version with a leather toe cap. Or, even an all leather boot with a side-zip.

Admin 12 Jul 2017

Hi Chad,

Why no waterproof

Why no waterproof, if it can extend GORE TEX inner, this will be perfect

Admin 21 Jun 2017

Hi Tom,

Thank you for your feedback on the Black Eagle Athletic 2.0 T High Side Zip.  We understand your concern over the lack of a waterproof liner in these boots but our cost is far too high to add GORETEX to this specific boot and have them shipped to the U.S.  If you like the waterproof feature, please check out our Black Eagle Tactical 2.0 boots as an alternative.  We hope you will continue to be a HAIX customer in the future.

Great Boot..But Could use a wide variant

I originally wanted the previous version of this. But is became unavailable due to the replacement with the 2.0. Previous reviews stated that the 11 High Side was a wide width and not to worry about not being able to get a wide version. I received these last week and have worn them for a few shifts. They are everything that they claim to be. They are just too narrow for me. Granted i always and sized as a wide for shoes, boots and sneakers. I have taken out the insole which gave me more room, but the boot was not comfortable to wear without the insert.

They fit to size..They are not wide be design.

The would be a 10, if they would come in a wide.

Admin 20 Jun 2017

Hi Donald,

We appreciate you taking the time to give us feedback on the new Black Eagle Athletic 2.0 T High.  We are happy to hear that the boots are serving you well on the job and came as advertised.  As for the width, after reaching out to you I am confident that we have found a reasonable solution to the problem.  Hopefully this will help with the width and extend the life of the boots.  Thank you for your service.  Stay safe out there!
