Protector Prime Black Forestry Boot
Working with a chainsaw is a dangerous activity, and if you make a living working with a chainsaw, safety is paramount. You need footwear that not only offers you cut protection, but will keep you steady on your feet on sometimes uncertain terrain. You need a boot you can rely on day in and day out.
Protective and Comfortable
HAIX® Protector Prime Black is that rare boot that achieves the perfect balance between protection and comfort. For you diehard traditionalists, the all black sueded leather offers a more toned down look, with the orange running along the sole offering more visibility. In addition, we all know that sometimes the more protective the boot, the more uncomfortable the wear can be. Protector Prime offers you both with European Class 2 (24m/s) cut protection and all day wearing comfort, making it the top choice boot in the arborist field. The steel protective toe cap prevents injury from toe impact with its compression resistance technology.
Waterproof and Breathable Leather and HAIX® Climate System
European craftsmanship is evident once you see these black logger boots in person. The upper material is made of waterproof and breathable velour leather with minimal seaming to increase durability. It is built with a climate system to keep your feet at a comfortable temperature. It ensures that your shoes are well-insulated with a balanced temperature no matter what the conditions indoors or outdoors. You want your feet warmer in cooler temperatures and cooler in warmer temperatures. The vent holes at the top of the boot makes it all possible by circulating moist air out and fresh air in. That’s the primary foundation of our Climate System.
Two Zone Lacing
The two zone lacing of these black logger boots allows you to adjust the boot to your personal liking allowing you to achieve the ankle support needed to perform the job efficiently. The HAIX® Protector Prime makes it easier to focus on forestry work as the two zone lacing can tighten certain spots separately, keep those areas snug, and prevent spread out even after hours of tension.
Vibram® Soles and Secura Liner® and GORE-TEX® Protected
If you are out in the woods, the sturdy Protector Prime Black offers unbeatable ankle protection and support; so important in preventing ankle injuries. And the Vibram® hiking outsole provides extra grip and slip resistance on even the toughest terrain.
The inner liner and the upper leather is secured beneath the outsole is with our Secura Liner® system. You can rest assured that the inner lining of your Protector Prime Black will never wrinkle or pull out.
The HAIX® Protector Prime Black is protected by a GORE-TEX® moisture barrier which is a waterproof, and breathable, fabric designed to repel water from entering your boots but still allows water vapor to escape. Protector Prime Black should be at the top of your wish list.

An impressive boot
All in All I have been really happy with this boot. I have been in the Tree Service industry for 15+ years and know the value of a great boot. It's comfortable for all day wear, Great ankle support for moving across uneven ground and across logs, Sole is very tacky giving a great grip on rock, and the boot has excellent padding. I've had logs roll on my toes and also against the side of my ankles and these boots give great protection. The leather on these boots have help up great. With a little cleaning they would look good as new. The only con is I wish it had a more aggressive sole with deeper lugs and the spikes like on the Protector Extreme. The deeper lugs would help a lot with soft earth and mud and with longevity giving me a little more time before having to have these re-soled. With the sole being so soft I have gotten about a year or so out of them and it's about time to have the sole redone. In the end I am pleased with the boots and would and have recommended them to others. (Edited)
Thanks for the great feedback John!
