Ultimate safety certified to ASTM for toe protection offering European Class 2 for cut protection
Safety is top priority when working with chainsaws. Protector Ultra Lime Green is built to protect your feet from the dangers of the job at hand. Our durable European bullhide leather combined with an added layer of cut resistant material offers not only durability, but added reaction time if you come in contact with the chainsaw blade. Class 2 is rated for chainsaw speeds up to 24/meters/second.
Protect your toes with our steel toe cap
The integrity of your feet, and especially your toes, is important. The Protector Ultra Lime Green's built in steel toe will offer maximum space in the toe box while keeping your toes protected to the highest safety requirements.
Keep yourself safe from downed powerlines with Electrical hazard resistance
Protector Ultra Lime Green is independently certified to provide electrical hazard protection to 18kv because even in wildland firefighting , downed power lines can be hard to detect through smoke and vegetation. Protector Ultra Lime Green offers that added level of protection.
Enjoy peace of mind with a Vibram sole that offers both durability and exceptional slip resistance
The Protector Ultra Lime Green Vibram anti-slip sole is newly designed to give you greater footholds on wet leaves and difficult terrain. The unique tread design will keep your feet in place when you need it most and the sole profile will even fit crampons and foot ascenders. Built to HAIX's exacting standards, you never need to worry about sole failure out on a job.
Comfort fit with HAIX® cushioned insole
HAIX insoles keep your feet and your boots fresher and more comfortable on the job. Our insoles absorb perspiration to keep your feet dry even under the most rigorous conditions. 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 Protector Ultra Lime Green 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 and comfort thanks to 2 zone lacing
The Protector Ultra Lime Green 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. Fix it tighter across the foot and looser on the leg or vice versa. A soft, close fitting cuff in the boot helps keep pesky wood chips and debris out of your boot. Roller ball lacing elements puts less wear and tear on your laces too.
Breathable comfort with HAIX® Climate System
The Protector Ultra Lime Green 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 vent holes at the top of the boot. The Climate System essentially works likes an air conditioning system in your boot.
These are only a pound heavier than my Asolo hiking boots while being as comfortable, but taller, with steel toes & cut protection. Glad I finally replaced my old uncomfortable steel toed boots. My feet sometimes take a beating while logging and sawing on my mill these will help. The sizing is as advised 1/2 a size under what you usually take.Read more
Coming off an ankle injury I grabbed these boots for climbing and falling. Game changer for ankle support for both. Very comfortable, and seem to be holding up very well.Read more
Great winter boots
I am on my 3rd pair of haix protector ultras. They are a tough boot that holds up to any of the elements you can put them through. They last me 2 sometimes 3 years wearing them in the winter months in upstate NY. There is not a better arborist boot if you have harsh winters. These boots are feature packed and do everything they say they will.Read more
Protector Ultra Lime Green
I have only worn the boots for a few weeks but I am definitely pleased so far. After a few days of breaking in they were much more comfortable. They are great with spurs and have molded to my feet extremely well. Only down side is that they are hot. Gore-tex may as well be a plastic bag. Would I pay full price for them? Likely not. The sale price was very reasonable.Read more
Best boot PERIOD
Been working in the tree care/utility vegetation management field for 17+ years and these boots are by far the best boot on the market. Before I found Haix about 5 years ago I wore just about every boot imaginable and nothing comes close to the waterproofness, longevity, durability and comfort offered by haix.Read more
These boots are great, they feel very sturdy and comfortable. I would advise all new users to brake them in for about a week or two by wearing them in different lacing ways around the house before you venture onto the tree or worksite for a full day. They are pretty stiff at first, but I have no regrets on the money spent,though I’d buy a new pair every year if they were a bit cheaper. My kids say they are my “Power Ranger” boots, and I agree with them…. They should come with a giant mechanical ranger to defeat the work day with 1990’s special effects.
Been wearing these boots for 3 years, they wear out wuick when ditching from forest to urban settings. Other than that they’re a kickass boot if worn for what they’re built for.Read more
So far so good!
I was looking for a good boot for ground work and climbing, so started looking for boots other than the Redwings that I have bought for years. I came across these and started reading reviews, the only thing I ever saw negative was people complaining about the break in period. So I gave it a shot and I will say I am at the start of my 3rd week with them and the major break in strain is pretty much gone! My feet are comfortable all day and don't hurt at the end of the day. I've used them once with my spikes and they didn't move around at all! In all 10/10 until I find something worth complaining about. Plus I really like the side support and the locking bottom laces!Read more
Best boots ever
10/10 best forestry boot everRead more
Suitable Boot for Mountain Construction
I have now spent 80 hours working in my protectors and I can say that I am a big fan. I build recreation infrastructure in mountain environments, in a typical day I spend 10+ hours in an excavator, on the chainsaw, hiking and doing assorted skilled labor. I was a bit hesitant to drop nearly $650 in a pair of boots, however I can say that the overall construction of these is on par with high quality mountaineering boots. The stability when walking across slope is spectacular, and you can really edge them in when you are aggressively working on steep and loose terrain. The flexion and dexterity when using them on the foot pedals of my excavator is improving as they break in and I find it totally livable. I cannot speak to the durability of these boots yet, but typically I destroy a pair of $200 boots every year, so if these boots make it even half their advertised life, it will provide the best value of any boot that I have owned. I stressed out a lot about picking a size, my footwear range from 9.5-10 depending on brand. I have some Nike gym shoes that are 9.5, salomon trail runners in 10. Most of my work boots have been 9.5. Anyway, I bought a size 9 and they fit very well with my typical mid weight work socks. My only complaint is that I wish that they came with the recommended treatment product, that silicon based treatment is not super common and I have ended up treating mine with beesewax that is used for similar mountaineering boots.Read more
Absolutely worth the money the best boots my husband has ever owned and he is an arborist.Read more
The best Arborist boot so far
5 pairs over 6 years fore and my crew and they are just the best. Waterproof, somewhat cool in hot summer on asphalt, pretty warm in winter in deep snow, comfortable in hooks, excellent grip for trimming sessions. Love them and so do my guys!Read more
Haix defender boots
Very impressed with the quality of materials these boots are made of, extremely comfortable considering your ankle is almost in a fixed position due to the rigidity of the boot. I feel confident they will perform as needed in the long term. Climbing spurs fit nice around them and are barely noticeable while wearing them, as opposed to wearing conventional work boots. I feel I have got my money’s worth thus far, very happyRead more
Best Chainsaw Loggers Boots!
If you are serious about chainsaw safety, then good boots are a must ~ The Haix Protector Ultra’s are the BEST! With 45 years experience these are by far the most comfortable chainsaw boots I’ve ever used. Safety is a priority, but comfort is essential to being productive. The support, fit, lacing features, padding, lugged sole, they all add up to a winning combination. I went with the wide version and 1/2 size larger than normal when using them with thick wool socks for cold weather cutting. Regardless I like the wide for any season.Read more
Best Boots I've Owned in 30 Yrs
I have owned many different work boots and without a doubt the HAIX Protector Ultra Lime Green boots are the most outstanding work Boot I have owned in over 30 Yrs in construction/rope access work. As I work in a high angle rope access environment, the stability and comfort is amazing and they can withstand the punishment. My #1 boot of choice.Read more
I have been wearing the same pair of these boots now for about 3 years. I work in the the power line industry. These boots are great for climbing, very comfortable and give great support to my feet. As mentioned in other reviews, I am wearing a half size smaller then I would normally wear. I have a couple of other pairs of boots as well and every so often I’ll wear one of them for a day and none of them come close in comfort to my Haix. I would definitely buy another pair but right now the ones I have look like they have a couple more years left in them. There is a higher cost at the beginning but these things really last. Even the laces are still the ones that came with the boots. Well worth the money.Read more
Awesome Boots, Weird sizkng
I really enjoy these boots, the comfort and features are well thought out, the sizing though…. now that is a different story. I wear a 12 in every piece of footwear I own, not Haix….. they recommend a 1/2 size smaller, I could go a full size maybe size and a half DOWN and still fit nicely.Read more
Great climbing boots
Ive only spent about 10 hours of climbing in these but so far so good! Nice and stiff for hooks. I wear a 10.5 street shoe, ordered a 10 and they fit perfect, only problem i had was getting them tight as i like my boots but im sure that problem will solve its self as the boots break in. Overall fantastic bootRead more
My feet never been happier in boots. I’ve climbed in the rain, snow, and sunshine so far, and they’re holding up quite well.Read more
HAIX Protector Ultra Lime Green
I’ve always had a hard time finding boots that fit me. I normally wear a 4e wide boot and I’m flat footed . I ordered the wide version. Fit is great and very comfortable.Read more
So far so good.
I like them so far, wearing them every day to fall, limb, & buck trees. Fortunately I have not tested their effectiveness against a chainsaw. I have spilled bar oil and saw gas on them multiple times and doesn't seem to affect them. It hurts a bit about midfoot on the outside of my right foot, but maybe will go away once they have been worn longer. Thanks.Read more
I’m 64 years old and still enjoy getting out in the woods to cut. I have a history of foot and ankle issues and purchased these boots hoping they would provide the support I needed. I wear a size 11 medium but followed the recommendation of ordering a half size smaller. The 10.5 mediums I ordered fit me perfectly. As far as comfort and support, these are the best boots I have ever owned. I love them and feel safe and comfortable wearing them.
in very short - that boots are worth to put your comfort and protection in it.
I am glad that I chose them!
Good boots bad fit
I bought the lime green boots. After having shattered my heel in a fall I thought these would get these for the extra support. Over all I like them. However I received them and they felt ok out of the box but after a couple of days on the job I realized they were tight and it was then too late to send them back. The one issue I have with the boot is if you are working in rocky jagged areas, the sole seems to be narrower than the boot body where your feet are. I find rocks and tight areas that my feet are overhanging the soles and constantly getting pinched. Maybe a size larger or width wider would have helped. I’m only good for 6 hours in the boots and my feet are too sore. Again, probably because they are a shade too narrow at the toe. Other than that they are good boots. I’ll probably get another pair but not online as I can’t try them and send them backRead more
Up to par so far
Ive tried numerous boots. Timberland, Danner, salewa..etc First day out of the box was a heavy rain and muddy day. Extremely sturdy but comfortable boots with enough water proofing to keep your feet dry ALL DAY. which most boots struggle with. And they dry quick. One more note to the comfort..my feet have never been dryer in a boot. Even on dry days when I sweat so do my feet. However in these my feet come out after a 10 hr day bone dry. Very impressive. For how solid they are they def breathe. I dont know how but they do. Broke in after a week. Does run .5 size big. So take that into account. I wear 8.5..got an 8 and they are perfect. Lots of support with plenty of room in the toe bed. Also performed very well in the tree as well. Great grip and stability on precarious limba. If you are a serious arborist do yourself a favor and get these. You wont be disappointed.Read more
So far so great
I really have enjoyed these boots tremendously so far. They were painfully stiff at first, but broke in quick. I ordered wides because the wide xr200s fit well im.glad I did, because they are definitely none too wide. I ordered my normal size, they do run big, but they feel really good with that extra space. They dont feel sloppy because of the xoned lacing and nice footbed. There is something strange in the left boot, like it pushes on the sides of my toes, so we'll see if that part breaks in. The steel shanks are great for for spurs.Read more
Love these boots!
I am an arborist doing urban tree work. I've had these boots for about 6 weeks now, they broke in super easy. They're comfortable, and flexible, yet firm and very supportive. The toe is strong and firm. They're great for climbing in as well. I highly recommend them over the typical European brand chainsaw protective forestry boots. Nice to see a company here in America making high quality chainsaw protective boots.Read more
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.Read more
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.Read more
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.Read more
