Fire Hero Xtreme, Factory Second


 What size should I order?

The nature of your job as a firefighter can entail unforeseen physical challenges, from climbing multiple flights of stairs in full turnout gear, dragging a victim to safety, or dragging heavy hose. You need gear that will handle any situation, providing much needed protection, but also giving you the support and agility you need to safely accomplish the task at hand. The HAIX® Fire Hero Xtreme, our most popular firefighting boot, will do that and more. Extremely Slip Resistant with Polyurethane Foam Soles These leather firefighter boots for men have highly slip resistant soles that allow you to get into the action even if it's on water, ice, or snow. Together with the honeycomb tread pattern and yellow suction cups, the fireman boots offer excellent traction on slick and wet surfaces.  Climbing up ladder rungs can be the norm during fire operations and with ladder bar treads in the joint area, you can focus better on the emergency knowing your leather firefighter boots for men have added stability. The polyurethane foam is injected into the sole cavity, offers shock absorption and phenomenal heat and cold insulation. Because as a firefighter, you never know where you're going to be and how bad the situation will be. And because these HAIX® Factory Seconds fire boots' sole is self-cleaning, oil and fuel resistant, and non-chalky, it requires minimal maintenance. The added benefit of a built in boot jack at the back, makes getting these HAIX® Factory Seconds fire boots off as easy as 1-2-3. Ankle Flex System for Feet and Ankle Support The HAIX® Ankle Flex System in these leather firefighter boots for men, and their interior elastic components, creates snug fit that will support your feet and ankles, so you don’t have to worry about twisting your ankle when running or jumping off the fire truck. The integrated flex zones that surround the ankle ensures you have flexibility and freedom of movement when kneeling or driving. The Ankle Flex System enables the boot to adjust to different foot, ankle, and heel shapes for a more custom fit. The added Ankle Protector helps to prevent ankle injuries from sudden blows. CROSSTECH® and Secura Liner® Protected These HAIX® Factory Seconds fire boots are European made and built with only quality European leather and unique HAIX® features. And with its CROSSTECH® inner liner you not only get a boot that's waterproof, but you get added protection from chemicals and bloodborne pathogens.  Our unique 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. HAIX Climate System and HAIX Sun Reflect Leather The HAIX® Climate System that comes with these HAIX® Factory Seconds fire boots ensures that your feet stay at a comfortable temperature no matter what. It keeps feet cooler during warmer temperatures and warmer during colder temperatures. Don't worry about having to stand in the hot sun all day either. The HAIX® Sun Reflect leather protects the boot by reflecting direct sunlight so your feet don't get too hot even on the hottest of days. Comfortable Bootstraps and Padded Shin The larger bootstraps are strategically placed below the topline of these HAIX® Factory Seconds fire boots in order to protect the calf from the rubbing you can experience with other manufacturer’s longer bootstraps. And with these leather firefighter boots for mens' padded shin protection, you can lean on ladder rungs all day long and barrel through low obstacles without any worry of injury. NFPA certified for structural firefighting, our HAIX® Factory Seconds Fire Hero Xtreme is the cream of the crop in fire boots; often imitated, but never duplicated. HAIX® Factory Seconds Fire Boots are Engineered in Germany Secura Liner® – will never wrinkle up or pull out over time HAIX® Sun Reflect leather helps keep feet cooler in direct sunlight HAIX® MSL System (Micro Soft Light) PU foam is injected throughout the soles of these leather firefighter boots for men for greater shock absorption and cold/heat insulation HAIX® Climate System keeps your feet temperature regulated and more comfortable HAIX® Ankle Flex System stabilizes the foot with a flexible insert in the shaft/instep area to fit like a lace up boot Carbon protective toe cap Exterior profiled rubber toe cap for added abrasion resistance when crawling Steel puncture protective sole Ladder shank for extra support on ladder rungs HAIX® ES Out System offers a special heel edge for easier boot removal Puncture-resistant boots with padded shin protection Leather firefighter boots for men have larger boot straps placed below the topline so as not to rub the calf Waterproof/breathable with CROSSTECH® Increased chemical protection and bloodborne pathogen resistance Slip resistant and highly heat resistant water ice grip rubber sole HAIX offers an Extended Wear Program, click here for more details HAIX ®  Factory Seconds do not come with warranty repair.

Maximum safety for Firefighters where innovation meets durability

You focus on what matters. Saving lives and fighting fires. Fire Hero Xtreme ensures you come home safely at the end of the day.

Maximum protection certified for structural firefighting

Your safety is priority. Fire Hero Xtreme keeps you protected from the heat and flames, offers the highest level of sole puncture resistance, protects your toes and protects you from dangerous fluids you can be exposed to on the job. Our durable European bullhide leather not only offers more protection, it offers more stability (no more boot flop over) and long term durability.

Protect your toes with our composite toe cap

The integrity of your feet, and especially your toes, is important. The Fire Hero Xtreme is equipped with composite toe caps that are lighter weight yet still keep your toes protected to the highest safety requirements. It helps reduce foot and leg fatigue from long hours on the job.

Keep yourself safe from dangerous fluids thanks to CROSSTECH® technology

Your job can expose you to hazardous situations. The CROSSTECH® technology in the Fire Hero Xtreme's inner lining ensures your boots are waterproof while also protecting you from potentially dangerous fluids such as blood, bodily fluids, and chemicals. Your feet stay dry, and you stay safe.

Stay on your feet with our highly slip-resistant sole

Fire Hero Xtreme's highly heat- and slip-resistant sole was built for water, ice, and snow. Its exclusive honeycomb tread pattern and yellow suction cups provides excellent traction on slick and wet surfaces. A well insulated steel puncture plate offers you the highest level of protection from any nasty surprises. The additional signal yellow color on the sole gives you increased visibility when crawling, even in the smokiest of conditions. We even added a built in boot jack at the back to make getting out of your boots as easy as 1-2-3. Fire Hero Xtreme is also EH-rated above the NFPA standard to 18kv.

Lightweight comfort to endure the longest hours

You spend long hours on your feet performing one of the most physically demanding jobs in the world. We make sure your feet don't feel like it.

Lighter weight with a stable fit and feel

The nature of your job as a firefighter can entail unforeseen physical challenges. The Fire Hero Xtreme can handle any situation to provide much-needed protection while giving you the support and comfort you need for safely accomplishing the task at hand.

Better fit and more flexibility with the HAIX Ankle Flex System

Unlike other pull-on bunker boots that can feel loose and sloppy over time, the Fire Hero Xtreme features our Ankle Flex System for a phenomenal fit and quick in-and-out capabilities. The interior offers a snug fit that supports your feet and ankles, so no more worries about twisting an ankle when running or jumping off the fire truck. The integrated flex zones surrounding your ankle guarantee more flexibility and freedom of movement when climbing stairs, kneeling, and driving.

Comfort fit with HAIX® 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 in the most rigorous conditions. Added cushioning provides extra comfort. The microfiber design is lightweight, breathable, and machine washable. Replace occasionally to keep your shoes fresh and comfortable.

Breathable comfort with HAIX® Climate System

The Fire Hero Xtreme ensures your feet stay dry and comfortable by utilizing special foams that absorb moisture from your feet between the inner lining and the leather. With each step, moist air expels, and fresh air enters through the vent holes at the top of the boot. This Climate System functions like an air conditioning system for your feet.

Best fire boots

I have had thorogoods, and globe leather boots. The career department issued these. I have had them for year and found them to be more comfortable and fitting than any of the others. Because of this positive experience I bought a pair to use on the department that I’m part time on. I would recommend these over any previous boots I have owned.

Just like sneakers

I’ve owned these boots for almost three years, honestly extremely comfortable and lightweight. I can wear these all day everyday. My only complaint is that they are 11” vertical instead of 14” like other company boots, not that it makes any difference. I’ve never had an issue in a fire where the boot is too short up my leg but I do find myself fixing my bunker leg more due to the shorter height. I still highly recommend buying these boots.

Great boots at a great price will buy again...

Great product

I have had these boots for 8 years now. They are very comfortable they fit like a glove. I just ordered a new pair. They just started leaking but I will wear this boots in till I retire. Very good product.



Very Comfortable

I have used these boots for about 6 months now and they are the most comfortable boots I have ever owned. I could wear them everyday to my full time job. I got the factory seconds and I went over every stitch and panel and could not a single thing that looked even remotely bad. The bottom line is... these boots are FANTASTIC. I have recommended them to several other FF’s from our dept and the surrounding area. When (if) these wear out, I will be back for sure. Thanks

Can't even tell

I bought these boots on the factory seconds site and when I received them, I looked at each one trying to find the "flaw". I couldn't find one nor could any of the other guys at the station. Comfortable and durable and worth every penny spent on them! Excellent boots and would recommend them to anyone!



Worth the savings!!

When I received the boot I thoughly inspected and could find nothing wrong but one small scuff on the heel. Very comfortable and worth the savings!!!



FS Fire Hero Xtreme Size 10.5 Medium

I have size 10.5 Haix Airpower station boots and read on the Haix site that you should order your structure boots one half size smaller, so I ordered FS size 10 mediums. They were too tight for me so I ended up ordering 10.5 mediums and they fit perfect.

The boots are awesome and required very little break in (and that was mostly getting them to come off easier). I was unable to tell what made them FS. Definitely recommend them. Had a pair of rubbers and a pair of Pro-Warringtons previously. I prefer these Haix over both.



Excellent product

We have been wearing the Fire Hunter products in our department for 10 years without complaint. We have purchased the Fire Hunter Extreme FS for all our personnel. I am certain we will continue to be satisfied with Haix boots.

Great price, very comfortable

I picked these up Black Friday as my issued rubber boots were becoming degraded. Currently, they're my back up set,as most of us know, having a good back up set makes it easier to switch to them after a fire. I emphasize this point as after the first long call and switching gear, having a very comfortable pair of boots to get into for the next call makes a world of difference on your feet.



Solid Boot for the Money

Bought these as my department only issues the uncomfortable rubber boots and they only authorize four other boot models, two of which are produced by Haix, for private purchase. These feel good once on but they are a little tight while donning and doffing (size 10.5 wide). Although they seem to get a little easier to put on and take off every time they are worn so they may require a slight break-in period. These boots were offered as factory seconds at a reduced price but I honestly don't know why they are considered seconds as I can't find a single flaw or even a misplaced stitch.
