Haix Mission Sage
The “pocket” for the laces is a joke. Great idea, but poorly executed. That being said, this is my only gripe. I ordered size 11, like all my other Haix boots and they fit like they should. Overall, I believe Haix tends to run small when compared to Red Wing, Irish Setter, Ariat, and Twisted X.
The Mission boots are great. Very easy to get on and off, but stay secure when on without creating pinch or pressure points. They will require some break in, but even when new, they are comfortable. The first day I wore this pair, I wore them for 19 hours and I have no complaints. The boots are rugged, but look great. They pair with khaki and coyote colored pants very nicely.
Buy a pair and enjoy. If you’re and old school military type, you’ll just tuck the laces like normal and won’t notice a thing.
We appreciate you taking the time to review the Mission Sage. We are happy to hear that you like the fit and feel of these boots and they are easy to get off an on while also keeping your feet secure. Many of our boots do require a longer break-in period due to the full-grain leather used throughout, but we are glad that you found them to be comfortable right out of the box. We apologize that you don't like the pocket for the laces or feel that it is useless, but it is good to know that you found another solution that doesn't deter you from wearing them. Thank you for your comments, I will be sure to pass this up the chain of command for consideration. We hope the boots continue to serve you well in the future.
Excellent Boots, great color.
These boots felt broke in right out of the box. I have a pair of Missoulas that took a few days to break in. Felt like I was walking in ski boots. These mission boots have a little lace cinch thingy , I removed, I always wrap laces around and tie. I am in the landscape industry so coloring is excellent. Slightly bummed that it is a clearance item. That often is clue to a discontinued item. Plan on buying a black pair. Haix boots seem very well made . I have bought myself 2 pair and 5 others for employees. I did buy these Mission sage a half size smaller and they were a spot on fit.

I purchased a pair of these boots recently. I have only worn them a few times and have found them to be of very high quality and comfortable right out of the box.I agree that the elastic side pocket is too small as the laces do come out while walking. The
We appreciate your feedback and are glad to hear that you have found our boots to be high-quality and comfortable. I will certainly pass your thoughts about the small elastic side pocket up the chain for consideration.
Happy feet quality product with minor issues
Nice boot very comfortable out of the box, sturdy and flexible where you want it. There are 2 items I have issues with, the sinch mechanism on the laces comes loose so I removed it and just tie it. At the top of the arch the 2 lace D rings are a bit challenging to loosen, they hold tight all day which is great but upon removal they do not release easily and is a little frustrating. Additionally the lace pocket is not very functional after many iterations I stopped using it.
Thanks for the feedback on your Mission Sage boots, glad your feet are happy.
If you grab the laces just below the D rings and pull up and out at an angle, they should pop out for easy removal. Since you are no longer using the sinch mechanism, the lace pocket really doesn't serve a purpose for you because it is there to hold the mechanism in place.
If you have another other questions or concerns, please feel free to contact us at 866-344-4249 and speak to our customer service department and they will try to help you troubleshoot the problem.
HAIX Mission Sage
I bought these boots late this past summer, and planned on having them broken in for a 3 week hiking trip to Scotland in September. Turned out that these are one of the most comfortable boots I've worn from the get go, and I've been through a lot of boots. Virtually no break in period, great support, good traction, waterproof, light, quiet, and hard wearing. I ordered a half size down, and they are perfect fit. My only concern is the elastic side pocket for stuffing the excess lace into, seems a little small as the lace occasionally pops out of the pocket while walking, creating a potential tripping hazard. I now just tie the lace in front, which has solved this problem. Other than that, an excellent product, and I'll stay with the HAIX brand for my future boot purchases. Thank you.
