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
It’s highly slip resistant sole allows 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 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 boots 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 the HAIX® Fire Hero Xtreme 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 your boots off as easy as 1-2-3.
Ankle Flex System for Feet and Ankle Support
The HAIX® Ankle Flex System, and the interior elastic components, offers a 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
HAIX® Fire Hero Xtreme is 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 the Fire Hero Xtreme 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 the Fire Hero Xtreme boot in order to protect the calf from the rubbing you can experience with other manufacturer’s longer bootstraps. And with its 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, HAIX® Fire Hero Xtreme is the cream of the crop in fire boots; often imitated, but never duplicated.

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!
Thanks for taking the time to review the Fire Hero Xtreme, FS. We are happy to hear that you found these boots to be comfortable, durable and worth the price. Many of our other customers have also said that they did not find the "flaw" in the Factory Seconds either. It may be something so small that it is not even noticeable. We appreciate your recommendation and your loyalty to the HAIX brand.
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!!!
We appreciate your feedback on the Fire Hero Xtreme, FS. We are happy to hear that the boots are comfortable and that you are satisfied with your purchase. We hope these boots will continue to serve you well in the future.
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.
Thank you for taking the time to give us feedback on the Fire Hero Xtreme FS. We are glad that you got your correct size and found them to be comfortable out of the box. We appreciate your service and for being a loyal customer.
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.
First of all, we appreciate your loyalty to HAIX and our Fire Hunter Boots. We are happy to hear that the boots have served your department well over the past 10 years. Thank you for all you do. Stay safe out there!
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.
We are happy to hear that you find the Fire Hero Xtreme, FS to be comfortable when on active duty and a nice compliment to your other boots. We hope they continue to serve you well in the future and even become your go-to boot! Thanks for your comments, we appreciate it.
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.
Thank you for taking the time to give us feedback on the Fire Hero Xtreme, FS. Our structural fire boots can take a little longer to break in, due to the thick, full grain
leather used throughout which could have had an effect on getting the boot off an on. We hope they serve you well in the future. Stay safe out there.
Had these boots for 5 years now and they are still great. Highly recommended!
