State of the Art EMS Boot
At HAIX®, with any boot you choose, you know you are getting the best and with the Black Eagle® Safety 55 Mid Side Zip that is no different. As the newest entrant to our EMS boot line, The Black Eagle® Safety 55 Mid Side Zip takes comfort and safety protection to a whole new level. Constructed with a softer tumbled European leather, you are going to feel the difference right out of the box. Extremely lightweight, the cushioned comfort of the foot bed will ensure you sail through the daily grind of the EMS First Responder. The handy side zip feature also allows to get your boots on or off in a matter of seconds. Lace your boots at the front once for a custom fit, then forget it.
Metal-free, ASTM Certified Composite Toe and Puncture Protection
Even though these boots are lightweight and comfortable, they also offer some of the best protection around. Black Eagle® Safety 55 Mid Side Zip is metal free, and offers ASTM certified toe and puncture protection. The roomy carbon fiber toe cap features flexible transition edging to take the pressure off the toes when bending and stooping. The puncture resistant midsole is flexible, extremely lightweight, and completely metal free. And with the metal free features built in, these boots are certified electrical hazard resistant too.
Slip Resistant Soles with Superior Grip
When you are dealing with an emergency, and are needing to move a patient quickly, slipping is just not an option. Smooth floors, wet weather, or even spilled biohazards can be an invitation for slips and falls. HAIX® soles offer superior grip capabilities in any situation. The lightweight and athletic sole construction offers improved heel to toe control in all weather conditions and is especially abrasion resistant. The non-marking rubber outsole is also resistant to heat, oil, and gasoline.
HAIX® Climate System and Waterproof, chemical protection with CROSSTECH®
To further enhance your wearing comfort, Black Eagle® Safety 55 Mid Side Zip has a built in Climate System. The climate system works in conjunction with the HAIX® breathable leather and CROSSTECH® inner liner to keep feet from getting too wet, hot or cold. Your feet stay dry and at a comfortable temperature no matter how much stress your feet are under. The CROSSTECH® inner liner is not only waterproof but chemical and bloodborne pathogen resistant too. So your feet stay protected no matter what an emergency can throw at you. AS with all HAIX® boots, these are German Engineered and European manufactured to give you the highest quality boots on the market.

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.
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.
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.
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.
