If you make a living working with a chainsaw, you want to control your risk and protect your safety. While protection and safety should be at the top of your list when choosing chainsaw protective footwear, you also need to have leather logger forestry boots that will be functional so that you can do the job at hand.
European Cut Protection and Added Visibility
Whether you work at heights or on the ground, the HAIX Protector Ultra provides both maximum comfort and a higher level of cut protection. Offering European Class 2 (24m/s) cut protection, the HAIX Protector Ultra is impressively stable and surprisingly lightweight and comfortable. The lime green color of these leather logger forestry boots gives you a higher degree of visibility and a better sense of where your foot is in relation to the chainsaw. Combine the lime green color with the silver reflective elements at the side and back of the boot, and you get a visibility boost day or night.
Soft-fitting Sleeve to Keep Debris Out and Two-Zone Lacing with Roller Ball Eyelets
The HAIX Protector Ultra is designed with an attention to even the smallest detail. These suede leather logger forestry boots are built with minimal seaming and double stitched in order to reduce the possibility of seam failure out on a job. A soft, close fitting sleeve in the boot and the combination of leather and suede on the tongue allows for a closer fit that will prevent wood chips and debris from getting into your boot. In addition, the two zone lacing permits independent lacing of the upper and lower part of the boot in order to provide a fit tailored to your individual preferences. Pair the lacing with roller ball style eyelets and lacing becomes a breeze.
GORE-TEX® Inner Liner and HAIX® Climate System
The breathable European sourced leather, combined with a waterproof GORE-TEX® inner lining, ensure your feet stay dry and comfortable all day out in the field. The built in Climate System carries moist air out of the boot through vent holes at the side and on the tongue. The Climate System helps your feet maintain a comfortable temperature whether working in cold or warm weather. HAIX® recommends a good wool blend sock as a wool blend is better able to work in conjunction with the climate system, wicking away moisture and keeping your feet drier. And the adjustable lacing allows you the ability to be flexible in your choice of socks, whether it be a thicker sock for cold conditions or a thinner sock for warm conditions.
Ankle Support and Vibram® Soles
The HAIX Protector Ultra is built to orthopedic criteria and helps to promote foot health. Built in ankle protection and support keeps your delicate ankle area safe and secure; so important in preventing ankle injuries. The Vibram® hiking sole gives you extra grip and slip resistance to keep you on your feet even in colder temperatures.

Over all the bolts are very comfortable. I’m happy with the protection of they give my feet and how well the grip in the tree. They work with my spikes great. I’m disappointed in a few things about the boots. The sizing is a little frustrating. I had to downsize almost 2 full shoe sizes to get in a pair that fit properly. Thankfully the staff is very helpfully and contact between the staff and myself was fast. I have had the boots for just under a month and have worn them for work maybe 10 days total so far. Already I have had a lace loop break and the waterproofing is junk. They are supposed to be gortex so I’m a little confused why in only a few hours of working in snow my toes are getting wet along with the entire toe cap area. It’s frustrating paying $300+ dollars for these boots to have wet feet and broken parts with in a few days of use.
We appreciate you taking the time to review the Protector Ultra. We are happy to hear that you like the comfort of these boots and that our Customer Service Dept. was able to help you find the correct size. We apologize that the waterproof feature is not up to your satisfaction and that you had a lace loop break in such a short amount of time. I believe this would be a warranty issue. Please contact our Customer Service Dept. at 866-344-4249 to see how we can rectify this situation. Thanks again for reaching out. We certainly hope this will not deter you from considering HAIX again in the future!
Out of the box you know it's a heavy duty shoe. They make me think of space boots. Great visuals, good comfort. I read a review saying you should order a size smaller then what you need. I did and it worked out. One funny thing I noticed was the left shoe and right shoe front pad. The piece with the shoe serial. They were different shades of green. One looked older and worn vs the other smooth and a brighter hue. Not to bothersome considering it's a work boot and going to get messed up after a week. I've owned Redwing, Redback, Timberland, and now Haix. I'd have to rate these at the top of the bunch. But for the price it should come with a pair of socks or free shipping. I might consider more Haix in the future if I can catch discount deals.
We appreciate you taking the time to review the Protector Ultra. We are happy to hear that you like the style and comfort of this heavy duty boot. These boots do run about a half-size larger than a normal boot so we are happy that these worked out for you. We apologize that the coloring was a little off. Not sure the reason for this but as you said, they are work boots that will get messed up on the job. As far as discounts, we do run specials with free socks, free shipping and a % off throughout the year so keep checking back. Thank you for considering HAIX! Stay safe out there!
These are very comfortable boots considering that I wear them for 12+ hours during work days. I also have the protector prime boots which are equally as comfortable. I had a problem with my ultras as one of the lace hooks broke but I talked to customer service and they took care of the problem right away with a new pair of boots. Kudos to their customer service (Lynn) I was very impressed with everything. I highly recommend these boots for logging as well as other activities.
We appreciate you taking the time to share your feedback on the Protector Ultra. We are happy to hear that these boots are comfortable even on long work days. We pride ourselves on top-notch customer service and we are glad they were able to help you with your issue in a timely manner. Thank you for your recommendation. We hope these boots continue to serve you well!
