Combat Hero, Factory Second


 What size should I order?

What do you look for in a pair of military boots? If you want army compliant boots that offer quality over your issued boots, you need to go beyond mere looks. The HAIX Combat Hero - Factory Seconds not only offer up boots that meet AR 670-1 requirements but are military ACU combat boots that will serve you in the best way possible. Abrasion Resistant and Breathable inner liner with HAIX® Climate System The newly designed HAIX Combat Hero is constructed with high quality European rough out leather with textile inserts to provide you with a breathable piece of foot gear that will keep you comfortable all day. The abrasion resistant and breathable inner lining paired with the built in Climate System, helps to wick moisture and sweat, releasing it through vent holes at the top of these HAIX military boots, so your feet will also stay dry and comfortable. Excellent Grip and Slip-Resistance on Uneven Terrain Built with an anatomically correct footbed, Combat Hero provides you with the proper foot support needed while on long rucks, lugging gear across rugged terrain. Yet it is lightweight and comfortable enough to use when carrying out every day admin work. These military ACU combat boots offer minimal break in time too. Lightweight and Comfortable with Minimum Break-in Time The rubber tread is tough enough for any terrain and the EVA midsole provides you the comfort of not feeling every rock and stone you encounter on a long hike. The sporty toe and heel rounding lends itself to optimal step and bend behavior and the cushioning in the sole offers superior shock absorption. The rubber at the toe adds to the HAIX Combat Hero’s durability as it functions as an added layer of protection from impacts, scuffs and cuts. HAIX® 2-Zone Lacing for Ankle Support and a Customized Fit The HAIX® 2-Zone Lacing allows you to adjust the fit of the Combat Hero to your individual preference. The non-reflective low friction loops permit the laces the move smoothly without wearing the laces down prematurely. The lacing allows you a snug fit across the width of the boot while providing wiggle room for your toes at the front. Lace locks keep your foot secure into the heel area with no movement of the foot forward or up and down, which can lead to blisters and/or foot and ankle injuries.  Military ACU Combat Boots That Meet AR 670-1 HAIX Combat Hero - Factory Seconds are made in Europe Breathable leather/textile design HAIX® Climate System for temperature balance Abrasion resistant and breathable textile inner lining Heavy duty pull on strap at the rear 2-Zone Lacing system for optimal fit and ankle support Non-reflective low friction lacing loops Fuel and oil resistant boot with durable anti-slip sole Heat resistant and cold insulating sole Tread is non-marking, self-cleaning; naturally releasing dried and caked on mud and dirt as you walk Excellent grip on uneven terrain, even on wet or cold surfaces Exceptional shock absorption Cushioned, moisture wicking insole which is washable and replaceable Padded tongue for additional cushioned comfort Learn more about HAIX® footwear technology.

Engineered to meet your exacting demands

Depend on your Combat Hero to get you through no matter how difficult the road may be.

Designed to meet the requirements of AR 670-1

Combat Hero is constructed with high quality European rough out leather with textile inserts to provide you with a breathable piece of foot gear that will keep you comfortable all day long. These coyote color boots have what it takes from top to bottom.

Keep your footing with our anti-slip sole

Combat Hero provides you with the foot support you need while on long rucks lugging gear across rugged terrain. The rubber tread is tough enough for any terrain while the EVA midsole provides you with the comfort of not feeling every rock and stone on a long hike.

Supportive cushioning with HAIX Absorption

Combat Hero will keep you feeling comfortable even when you are on the move all day. The built in cushioning in the sole acts as your own personal shock absorption, effectively cushioning each step and helps reduce foot and leg fatigue. Less break in time too.

Make it easier on yourself with the Combat Hero Lacing

The Low friction loops on the Combat Hero permits the laces to move smoothly and freely without wearing down the laces prematurely. The non-reflective hardware helps to keep you hidden when stealth is important too, and the large pull on strap at the back helps you pop your boots on with ease.

Extended comfort mile after mile

Rucking can be brutal, especially for your feet, Combat Hero keeps you going.

Breathable comfort with our Climate System

The Combat Hero allows your feet to breathe by absorbing the moisture from your feet into special foams between the inner lining and the leather. With every step you take, moist air is released and fresh air comes in through the fabric mesh at the top of the boot. The Climate System essentially works likes an air conditioning system in your boot.

Optimal support thanks to 2 zone lacing

The Combat Hero adapts perfectly to your foot. Independently adjust the upper and lower part of your boot just the way you like it for a comfort fit tailored just to you. You like it tight across the foot, but looser on the leg? You can do that. Like it tighter across the ankle for more ankle support? You can do that too. Lace locks also keeps your lacing in position.

Comfort fit with our cushioned insole

HAIX insoles keep your feet and your shoes 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 shoes fresh and comfortable.

Extra comfort and security from the padded tongue

The Combat Hero's padded tongue provides that extra bit of cushioning between you and your lacing while also providing a snugger fit across the instep. It also keeps your foot correctly positioned in the boot and prevents heel slippage which can lead to blisters that no one ever needs to deal with during their day.
