Missoula 2.1, Factory Second

Wildland firefighters subject themselves to one of the most physically demanding jobs in the world, requiring both physical and mental toughness to face the challenging and ever-changing conditions experienced with wildland firefighting. You need a boot that can match the challenges you face, that is as tough as you are. The new  Missoula 2.1 is up to that task and more and is certified NFPA 1977 for wildland firefighting. The HAIX® Missoula 2.1 NFPA hiking boots for wildland firefighting were built to meet the exacting demands of the wildland firefighter. The durably tough European split bull leather is water-resistant, hydrophobic and breathable to keep your feet as comfortable as possible. The lighter weight of the Missoula 2.1 helps to alleviate leg fatigue while on long hikes, since the less weight you have on your feet, the less energy you have to expend while walking. Offering not only safety protection, but comfort, for those who can spend all day on their feet in the most rugged of terrain. Our newly designed highly heat-resistant, Vibram®, anti-slip sole will give you greater footholds on whatever terrain you have to face. The special design of the heel offers strong footholds on even the most steep and uneven terrain. And the sturdy and stable midsole ensures you won’t feel every rock and stone as you hike. We also added a built-in boot jack at the rear of the boot to make it easier for you to get your boots off after a long day. Our two-zone lacing system allows you to adjust the tension separately on different sections of the boot, the upper and the lower part. You are able to adjust the HAIX wildland boots for a fit tailored just for you and the terrain in which you are hiking. For mainly downward descents, tighten the upper and the lowers evenly to prevent your foot from sliding forward into the boot. For mainly upward ascents, leave the upper a little looser so the upper does not constrict your shin. The two-zone lacing also provides better ankle support to prevent potential ankle injuries out on the line. The new roller ball eyelets on the lower part of the lacing system offers minimal friction, reducing wear and tear on the flame-resistant Nomex® laces. Missoula 2.1 NFPA hiking boots for wildland firefighting are available in narrow, medium, and wide widths with whole and half sizes from 4 to 13.

Added cushioning provides extra comfort. The micro fiber design is lightweight, breathable and machine washable. Replace occasionally to keep your boots fresh and comfortable.

Torsion proof for more stability

The Missoula 2.1 offers a sturdy and stable midsole which prevents your feet from flexing side to side, giving you more stability with less of a chance of ankle injuries. You also won't feel every sharp rock or stone through the sole of the boot, which translates to more comfort on those particularly long hikes.

Optimal support thanks to 2 zone lacing

The Missoula 2.1 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. 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. Roller ball lacing elements puts less wear and tear on your Nomex laces.

Breathable comfort with our Climate System

Missoula 2.1 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 mesh lining at the top of the boot. The Climate System essentially works likes an air conditioning system in your boot.
