Comfort fit with HAIX® cushioned insole

HAIX insoles keep your feet and your boots fresher and more comfortable on the job. Our insoles absorb perspiration to keep your feet dry even under the most rigorous conditions. Added cushioning provides extra comfort. The micro fiber design is lightweight, breathable and machine washable. Replace occasionally to keep your boots fresh and comfortable.

Breathable comfort with HAIX® Climate System

The Black Eagle Safety 55 Mid Side Zip allows your feet to breathe by absorbing the moisture from your feet into special foams between the inner lining and the leather.

Your questions. Our honest answers.

Yes, your boot fit can be adjusted on the Black Eagle Safety 55 Mid Side Zip by tightening or loosening the laces on either side of the zipper mechanisim. For a slightly more individualized fit, boots can be adjusted with an alternate insole. A blue insole for a narrower fit (thickest), a yellow insole for a wider fit (thinnest). Extra insoles can be purchased on the accessories page.
Yes the side zipper of the Black Eagle Safety 55 Mid Side Zip allows the individual user to adjust the fit to their own personal needs, offering more ankle support as needed, or possibly offering a looser fit across the forefoot for wider feet. Boots should be adjusted to your preference when they are received, then just zip in or out from then on. A second adjustment to the lacing may be needed after the boots have gone through their initial break in period.
Yes you can buy replacement parts for the Black Eagle Safety 55 Mid Side Zip such as insoles and laces. You can find these items on our website on the accessories page. If you are looking to retread or refurbish your Black Eagle Safety 55 Mid Side Zip boots, check out the HAIX Extended Wear program.
With the CROSSTECH inner liner, the Black Eagle Safety 55 Mid Side Zip does offer protection from liquids, chemicals, and bloodborne pathogens. The boots are tested and certified according to NFPA 1990 (1992) standards for biopenetration.
The Black Eagle Safety 55 Mid Side Zip runs similar in size to your athletic shoe size, but because of the built in arch support, they do run on the narrow side. The Black Eagle Safety 55 Mid Side Zip comes in medium, wide, and extra wide widths. It is recommended that you order one width larger than your usual width. For example, most people who normally wear a medium, would wear a wide in this boot.

No break-in period needed. Impressive details

I bought these as my first pair of Haix last week. I hesitated to order boots online without trying them on, but recommendations from friends got me over it. It turns out the sizing instructions were spot-on. I wore the boots 10 hours a day for four days straight, in the office and in the field with no discomfort. I put them on, adjusted them, then forgot about them. Until a fire extinguisher dropped on my toes and I felt nothing. :) They can be adjusted perfectly, and the zipper is extremely convenient. Consider me a satisfied customer.



Embossed area puts pressure on Tailor's bunion

I bought these because they have a nice wide toe bed because I have a bunion on the outside of my foot. The bunion never causes me problems except when I wear boots with rivets or seams that line up with the bunion. Unfortunately, the X embossed area rubs right on that point and causes pain after extended wear. I was hesitant to order wide because I have a narrow heel. I ordered some boot stretch oil and a spreader, hopefully this will fix the problem.

On the plus side, these boots have great soles and I like the way the heel rocks back. I always wear the back of my heels down, but I won't on these.



Great Quality as always

This is my 4rd pair of Haix boots and they have all been great quality and lasted. This is my first pair of this style but they appear to be great as well. First day they have wore well.



This is THE boot!

The Black Eagle Safety 55 is an amazing shoe! It has been well constructed to give the responder the grip and dexterity required to provide quality patient care in a variety of settings. The shoe is extremely comfortable and durable with washable insoles which is a HUGE plus! Going a full shift in this shoe is no problem at all. In fact, I have had some days where I wore it as a non-shift shoe walking through a busy everyday with no complaints. The customer service during the purchase was exceptional, and they correctly pointed out that ordering a 1/2 size up from my normal shoe would be advisable. I was glad I asked! When I pulled out the insole to check my fit - the toe hit right at the correct size indicator. Haix is working hard to make quality products that last, which is important when you are laying down real money. The right shoe isn't a purchase - it's an INVESTMENT, and putting your money into a Haix product is always a safe bet.



Highly recommend

I love these boots. I wear a women’s size 9.5-10 in a shoe, and the men’s 8 worked just fine. I’m on my third shift in them and they’ve broken in nicely (felt a bit stiff at first). Love the side zip feature-makes it super quick when we get calls in the middle of the night. For as durable as they seem, they’re fairly lightweight. They have good grip and while I wouldn’t mind a bit cooler boot, my feet aren’t drenched when I take them off. I’ve already recommended to my brother who also works HEMS.



Great boot

Excellent boots, very comfortable with minimum break in time. Side zipper works better than other side zip 6” boots I’ve worn on the past too.



High quality boots

I'm a gasoline driver, I never thought I'd find better boots than Red wing's and Timberland's, these Haix boots take me to another level of comfort that I never experienced before. The soles, the materials, everything is the best about these boots. I love them. Definitely I'll buy again.

Liking, these.

Quality, is the best of any boot that I have owned. Only, con is the heel. There, is hardly any give. Even, with gel insoles.
But, I still love them.
