Today's fire ground is not the same as those of the past. Lighter weight building materials makes for structures that can be more unstable and require quick changes in response. The new Fire Eagle® Air sets the standard for the modern day firefighter. Lighter in weight and slimmer in design than all of its predecessors, the HAIX Fire Eagle® Air boots have an athletic fit and feel, yet offers the highest degree of protection when on the frontline of a firefight. Fire Eagle® Air will keep you lighter and quicker on your feet and more responsive to the fire. From the very first step in the Fire Eagle® Air you will feel that rare combination of comfort and safety that is the hallmark of a HAIX® boot.
Innovative Sole Design
The Fire Eagle® Air's innovative athletic sole is highly slip resistant whether on water, ice, or snow. The newly developed 2 component tread features additional grip elements that offer outstanding stability no matter what conditions you may encounter. Superior traction equals greater flexibility to react to the changing conditions of a fire.
The dual color sole offers superior shock absorption and phenomenal heat and cold insulation. The unique signal yellow color used in the sole gives you increased visibility when crawling, even in the smokiest conditions. You also have the added benefit of a built in boot jack at the back to make getting your boots off as easy as 1-2-3.
HAIX® Ankle Flex System for Feet and Ankle Support
Unlike other pull on firefighter bunker boots that can feel loose and sloppy over time, the Fire Eagle® Air includes the HAIX® developed Ankle Flex System which offers a phenomenal fit with quick in and out capabilities. The interior elastic components throughout the ankle area offers a snug fit that will support your feet and ankles, so no more worries of twisting your ankle when running with equipment or jumping off the fire truck. The Ankle Flex System enables this firefighter bunker boot to adjust to different foot, ankle, and heel shapes for a more custom fit. The integrated flex zones that surround the ankle ensures you have flexibility and freedom of movement when kneeling or driving.
HAIX® Climate System and HAIX® Sun Reflect Leather
Fire Eagle® Air is German Engineered and European made, built with only quality European bull leather which is thicker and more durable. The bright yellow elements on the outside of the boot is the "light in the dark" for a firefighter. Not only does the yellow coloring make you more visible to your fellow firefighters, the yellow on the toe cap helps you to be able to see where you are placing your feet in a dark or smoky environment. And as always, the Fire Eagle® has Sun Reflect incorporated into the leather so that your boots and your feet stay cooler in bright sunlight.
CROSSTECH® and Secura Liner® Protected
Underneath the hydrophobic and breathable leather is a Crosstech inner liner is waterproof, and provides added protection from chemicals and bloodborne pathogens. Our unique HAIX® Secura Liner® feature will make sure you won't have the "liner pull out" you can experience with other fire boots. Nothing more frustrating than having your boot liner come out with your foot every time you take your boots off. NFPA certified, Fire Eagle® Air is a breakthrough in cutting edge technology and is all HAIX® from the shaft to the sole.

Just not a good feel
Overall, I expected a better fit. First, I must say that I bought the factory seconds with small stitching blemishes. There is no issue there. The fit is the issue for me. The left boot has a nice fit; However, the right boot feels completely different. The fit is sloppy with the right heel moving up and down considerably when I walk. The quality just doesn't feel the same. Most people do have one foot that is slightly larger than the other, I get that, but my right foot has always been a tighter fit. I have only had the boots about a week, but I have significant concerns about heel blisters from the right boot when I work a scene for an extended period of time. Other brands I have used had a better initial feel. Even for the seconds I spent $400 dollars with tax and fees; Hopefully, I didn't waste my money. I will probably look at a different brand or style in the future.
We appreciate you taking the time to review the Fire Eagle Air, FS. We are sorry you experienced some fit issues with the boot. I believe our Customer Service Dept. has been in touch with you and found a solution that will get those boots back on duty! We hope you will remain a loyal HAIX customer in the future. Stay safe out there!
Really comfortable and lightweight! Plantar Fasciitis Friendly!!!
This is my first pair of Haix Structural boots. Definitely recommend going down at least a half size if not a full size. Light weight of these and the comfort is fantastic! I have since been through Structural Fire Control at GPSTC and through several drills and a few fires. I have plantar fasciitis and these boots leave my feet feeling great with no pain after working in them. I will only buy Haix from now on!
Don't last long in tough conditions
Very comfortable! Downside is: in a 9 month span these have been through a 3 month academy and 2 fires and both toe caps/one sole cracked. My feet get soaked in even the smallest puddle, so they're now out of service. Academy can be pretty rough on gear, but if you're going to buy these, don't buy the factory seconds; you'll want to be covered under warranty if they wear out prematurely.
I purchased a pair of these Haix Fire Eagle Air boots for wearing on the ship I work on. I know they are designed as turnout gear, but I probably do more on my feet working 12 hour days than the average turnout gear wearer does.
I was pleased with the light weight yet robust construction of the boots. I accessed the online chat to make sure I got the sizing correct. I also purchased a pair of factory seconds since they had my size available in the model I was considering. Between that and the discount code Haix offered I got them for under $250.
The ankle support seems pretty impressive. I like the toe caps as well; on a ship we tend to knock the toes of our boots alot, and uncovered toes generally wear out there long before the nonskid decks flatten the tread off.
I look forward to much hard wear, and will consider the purchase of another pair when the time comes to replace these.
So far I'm very satisfied with my purchase, and recommend these to anyone considering a new pair of boots.
Got my boots yesterday and as soon as I got into the station this morning we caught a car fire. We were on scene for about 30 minutes and I swear they were some of the most comfortable foot wear I have ever had on my feet. I am super pleased with how they feel and even more so about the price I paid. I will definitely be buying more in the future and I highly recommend these boots to everyone.
EXCELLENT BOOT - HAIX Fire Eagle Air
I have owned HAIX structural boots as well as patrol boots in the past. HAIX, without a doubt, pays close attention to detail in their product. Their boots are extremely comfortable and hold up very well to harsh conditions. If you are unsure about the fit, click on the chat option, and ask a representative. I wear a 12 in tennis shoe, the representative suggested an 11.5. It fits absolutely perfect. The employees know their products. That's says a lot!
AWESOME PRODUCT/GREAT CUSTOMER SERVICE !
I have the same sentiments as the above. I am a volunteer FF and have always worn rubber boots. These boots are amazingly comfortable. Should have done this years ago. Would highly recommend them to anyone. I wear a 9 and purchased a 9 and they are PERFECT !1
Haix Fire Eagle Air - A+
I have been a professional fire fighter for the last 17 years and always wore the department issued rubber structural fire fighting boots, I was missing out. I was turned on to Haix by a fellow fire fighter and boy am I glad, best purchase by far. They wear like tennis shoes and are comfortable for hours. You will need to go down a size from what you normally wear, I normally wear a 11 but opted for the 10.5 and they fit great (once broke in). A+ equipment, I would recommend them.
