Missoula 2.1 Womens


 What size should I order?

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  women's firefighting boots are up to that task and more and are certified NFPA 1977 for wildland firefighting. The HAIX® Missoula 2.1 women's fire boots 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 wildland firefighting 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 boot 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 women's wildland firefighting boots are available in narrow, medium, and wide widths with whole and half sizes from 5-10. Now’s the time to try out the latest generation Missoula 2.1 , see and feel the difference.

The Missoula 2.1 is not waterproof, but the leather is hydrophobic and water resistant.
Missoula 2.1 does not have a safety toe in the boot.
The original Missoula boots are shorter in height, measuring at 8", while the Missoula 2.1 measures in at 9" tall.

HAIX always recommends to follow our NFPA 1851 guidelines for routine and advanced inspection. Our step by step guide is here. To clean boot, brush away any loose dirt with a stiff boot brush. Wash boots with warm water and a small amount of mild dish soap. Air dry without forced heat. Once dry, fluff the nap with a boot brush. An impregnating spray made especially for suede can be used to finish, but it is optional.

Best of the Best, Super Comfy

Fire season 2021 was a success, I was using Wildland White's at the time. I asked my CalFire captain what he thought about his pair of HAIX and said they were the best. He wasn't wrong. Received them today.. Super happy with this purchase. Fire season 2022.. Let's do it.

They had exactly what I needed and even provided live customer service when I was trying to track the order. Thanks.

Good but unnecessary Velcro

After a couple weeks of wearing these boots and hiking some, I am pleased to say that they are very comfortable so far. I have bunions so I got the wide version, and it’s definitely an improvement over my other average width boots. They did run larger than I expected, I usually wear a women’s 7.5 shoe but the size 7 in these seems to fit with plenty of room to spare in the toes. I also like that the laces are the right length and have the ability to stay up and held by the eyelets at the top so you can slip on and wear your boots loose and untied without the laces dangling. One downside that I wish the manufacturer would change is the Velcro closure tab on the tongue and upper of the boot- it doesn’t fit around your leg when closed and when left open the Velcro tab tends to poke and chafe the leg and scrape/catch the laces when you go to tighten them. I ended up cutting the Velcro tab off and having to re-stitch the boot seams in its place. Would be much better just left out. Overall happy with the boots!



Good Boots

I like these boots so far. Break in time seems short, I like the color and the weight of them. The sizing recommendation of ordering a half size smaller than normal was accurate. I like the wide assortment of sizes, love that they have half sizes, and the fact that they are actually women's boots was a big plus for me. Only complaint is that I wish the lace grommets were different. I do not like that you cannot change up the pattern of how the laces lay and I would imagine switching out laces in general would be a difficult task. Can be hard to get tight at times, have to retie two or three times each time I put them on to get the perfect fit. Will be interesting to see how the rest of the season goes when I break them in.

All around great boot

Absolutely love these boots! They kept me comfortable when I was on my feet for 12+ hours a day. I can also vouch that they are waterproof and built to last. I also felt secure in the even when hiking over steep and uneven terrain. I’ve had mine for about 5 months and have worn them 5+ days a week and they still look brand new. They fit maybe slightly on the larger side but it worked for me because I like to wear thick socks for all the hiking I do in them.
