Hiker Boots for Wildland Firefighting

Looking for an innovative alternative to those traditional logger style wildland fire boots? The HAIX® Missoula is the boot you’ve been looking for.

The Missoula was built especially for the wildland firefighter and hiker. The lighter weight alleviates leg fatigue while on those long hikes, since the less weight you have on your feet, the less energy you have to expend while walking. HAIX® Missoula uses thicker, breathable European leather and minimal seaming to increase stability and also durability of its boots.

Two Zone Lacing

The two zone lacing not only gives you the ability to adjust the boot for a fit tailored just for you, but allows you to achieve the ankle support you need when hiking through rough terrain. It enables you to tighten the boot to the foot and leg area separately so that you get a customized and supportive fit.

Vibram® Rubber Soles and Nomex Protected

The uniquely designed Vibram® rubber sole offers a stable non-slip sole edge so you can keep your footing even when on slick terrain. The Missoula cement sole construction is heat rated to 573°F so you won’t experience sole melt or delamination when conditions start to heat up. Stitching and lacing are all made of heat and flame resistant Nomex® which protects more than three million firefighters worldwide.

Secura Liner® Protected and Superior Heel Grip

The inner liner and upper leather are firmly secured and lasted beneath the sole. with Secura Liner® your inner liner will never pull out or wrinkle over time.

It also has specially designed heels that allow for superior grip even when walking on steep or uneven terrain. The midsole also prevents instability during hiking.

Cushioned and Quick Change Insoles

The comfort cushion insoles protect your feet from pain and provide long-lasting comfort allowing you to serve on duty even for long periods. And with its excellent moisture absorption and quick drying capabilities, you’ll never feel uncomfortable moisture in your boots.

HAIX® Climate System

The Missoula’s built in Climate System let's your feet maintain balance in temperature by keeping your feet warm in cool temperatures and keeping them cool in warm temperatures. The “bellows” effect in this system keeps air circulating with every step a firefighter makes. It helps keep your feet dry from sweat for longer periods making them one of the most comfortable boots you will wear while in line of duty.

Dual Purpose Boots

The HAIX® Missoula is not suitable for HAZMAT but it is a dual purpose boot that can be worn for wildland firefighting or for hiking. Whichever of the two may it be, the Missoula is guaranteed to provide you the support, comfort, and durability needed to fulfill such events or activities.

High quality & extremely durable

I have put these boots through the test . They have been exposed to extreme heat and I have hiked for miles with them and they have held together strong. The comfort level is so high that I bought a second pair for everyday wear. I love them. I put my Nick's hotshots on the shelf because they do not compare. I recommend them for sure.

Admin 5 Jan 2017

Thank you for taking the time to give us feedback on your experience with the Missoula, FS.  It's good to know that these boots have held up for you even after being put to the test through extreme heat and long miles.  We also appreciate the recommendation especially in comparison to our competitors.  Thanks again and stay safe out there!

still breaking in

A bit stiff on the uppers, digs into back of heel. If tied tight, foot falls asleep. have not used on fire yet. Still trying to break them in.

Admin 7 Dec 2016

Thank you so much for taking the time to share your experience with the Missoula, FS.  These boots can take a little longer to break in, due to the thick, full grain leather used throughout but once they are, I am confident you will find them to be comfortable and functional out on the job.  We hope they will serve you well in the years to come.

Great boots with no break in needed.

I was wearing another pair of wildland fire boots, they were heavy and cause numerous blisters. These boots are lighter and have yet to cause a hot spot on my feet, let alone a blister.

Admin 18 Oct 2016

Hi John,

We are happy to hear that the Missoula's have served you well so far and that they are comfortable on the job. 

Thanks so much for your feedback!

Great boots, right out the box, no break in needed.

Worked several night shifts on the fire lines in Oregon in the Missoula. Excellent fit, no pressure points, excellent stability.
Hiked several mountain trail miles on my days off in the boots, still like the boot.

great boot

I have been using this boot for about a year. Used on fire detail in Washington and hiking everyday on the job with the Forest Service. Great boot. Holds up well. Comfortable, comes in wide sizes. If these ever wear out I will purchase again.
