A Cut Above the Rest
Now you can get better cut protection without sacrificing comfort. While safety and protection should be a top priority, having chainsaw works boot that you can wear comfortably day in and day out should hold just as much importance. Because discomfort can lead to distraction, and you can’t afford distraction in your line of work. The Protector Ultra Signal Red boots offer all of the above and more.

Lightweight with Superior Cut Protection
Just like its sister boot, the HAIX Protector Ultra Lime Green, the Protector work boot in Ultra Signal Red offers the higher level protection of European Class 2; meaning the boots are tested to a chainsaw speed of 24 m/second. These chainsaw work boots offer exceptional stability on any kind of uneven terrain while feeling surprisingly lightweight. The steel toe also provides the highest level of ASTM toe protection. The brightly colored signal red suede upper works in conjunction with the reflective material at the heel and ankle for increased visibility near the chainsaw both day and night.

Soft Cuff to Prevent Sawdust and Woodchips from Getting Inside
With an eye toward comfort and safety with an attention to detail, the Protector Ultra Signal Red features a soft close fitting sleeve at the top of the boot that prevents flying wood chips and debris from getting inside and causing irritation to you and to your feet. No cleaning out wood slivers from your chainsaw work boots at the end of a long day.

Two-Zone Lacing with Roller Ball Eyelets for a Personalized Fit
The suede upper offers double stitched construction with minimal seaming to yield a longer wearing, more durable boot and less risk of seam failure out in the field. HAIX® knows you need to be able to depend on your footwear to perform, especially when far from home. The two zone lacing of the upper allows you to individually adjust the upper and lower lace areas for a customized fit while the roller ball style eyelets make the adjustment quick and easy.  Your boot can be adjusted to fit to your own personal preferences.

HAIX® Climate System Works with Breathable GORE-TEX® Inner Liner
The thicker European suede leather is not only breathable but ensures your red work boots last for years to come. Combined with the GORE-TEX® waterproof liner, your feet are guaranteed to stay dry and comfortable in any kind of weather. The built in Climate System circulates fresh air in and moist air out of the boot through the vent holes at the side and tongue. This helps the boot maintain a comfortable temperature no matter how heavy the work. Using a good wool blend sock, like the HAIX® multifunctional sock, works best with the HAIX® Climate System as the sock helps to wick away moisture, keeping your feet drier. The direr the feet, the less likelihood of blister and discomfort. An added benefit of the adjustable lacing system is that it allows you more flexibility in your sock choice. You can choose thicker socks for cold weather or thinner socks for the warmer months and adjust the lacing accordingly. 

Ankle Stability and Vibram Soles for Extra Grip and Slip Resistance
The HAIX® Protector Ultra Signal Red oil resistant shoes feature built in ankle protection and support, keeping your delicate ankle area safe and secure with less opportunity for ankle injuries. The sturdy Vibram® hiking sole delivers extra grip and slip resistance when you need it and long lasting durability on even the longest hike.

Durable and comfortable

I have worn these boots for 2 wildfire seasons and they have met that challenge no problem. They are extremely durable, especially considering how little I take care of them. I have never gotten blisters which is testament to how comfortable and we'll fitting they are. They can be a pain to dry out if you do get them wet, but if you have access to a boot dryer it's no issue. Overall, if you need to invest in a solid chainsaw boot I would recommend these to anyone.

Mountaineering boot for construcriin

I have worked forestry for over 10 years and now in rock scaling for 2 years.
When i switched over to climbing rock faces but in a construction setting i was hoping scarpa or something similar would have hard toe. I could not understand why all hard toe boots were heavy, chunky and cheap (money and build). I love to save money but i choose quality, customer service and longevity over saving a couple bucks anyday.
Luckily two other guys on my crew tried Haix and i heard about the spot on customer service and quality of the boot. (It also allowed me to try on a broken in shoe and find a good fit, which is the hardest part of buying online).
I am between a 10-11 usually and went for 9.5.
The fit is is spacious without my foot flopping around. I dont even have to synch them down super tight (although the locking lace pieces are genius).
So far waterproof and stupid easy to clean. Every week when they are dry i give them a brush and the dirt is gone. Have not had to do a soapy water bath yet.
My only downside right now is that the toes are a bit narrow to the rest of the foot. I wear barefoot style shoes normally so it has been a bit of a break in to get used to, not the shoes but my feet. I dont know if the wide version would alleviate this or not. I have worn them 10 hour days x 6 days a week x 2 weeks so im hoping it will settle in.
Even with that i am loving these shoes and would still purchase knowing all this.

Pretty Boots

I have wanted cut proof boots for along time after a couple of heart attacks I am on blood thinners so getting cut with a chainsaw isn't an option for me. I am very PPE conscious when cutting, chaps, hardhat with mesh face shield, safety glasses and now boots. They look great and feel great. Comfortable to wear. I have cut with them 3 times all in rain and a little mud and my feet have stayed warm and dry. They fit so well that I can't see myself not cutting without them. Very well made and comfortable boots.

Wow I finally got to use them and was amazed thought I would be uncomfortable for a day or two but after the first few minutes I forgot I was wearing new boots. Still not comfortable yet and worry not as tough as described

17 Dec 2021

Love these boots

The boots take a while to break in a hurt my feet but once they got broke in they are the most comfortable boots I’ve bought I work for a line clearance tree trimming company and we’re in every terrain you can think of and my feet stay dry in the swamps and warm in the snow. And for climbing trees with spurs it’s night and day over any traditional logger boots

25 May 2021


There was an outburst of these on Instagram and I just had to find me a pair. Love them! Great boots.

22 Apr 2021

Great Boot

The boot is great. Love how it has the two lace system. Allows me to keep the bottom tight and adjust the calf as needed. Very comfortable once you break them in. And you can't beat the safety.

High quality real world protective gear.

These boots are incredibly comfortable. I used to have all kinds of foot problems, and after wearing these boots they where almost all eliminated. I have fallen, despite being tied off, landed on my feet and doctors said they figured what saved my feet and body, In Part, was due to such high quality foot wear. During that same fall my boot was cut repeatedly, by a spinning arborist saw. Zero damage to me, and just heavy scratches on outside. Direct blade contact, didn't get past 2nd layer. All the best! Thanks Haix!

Awesome boot but you would sell alot more if there was more color options... brown!

Fantastic product

I bought the Ultra Protector for my husband for Christmas and gave them to him early because he is starting a tree service business. He enjoys climbing trees, but has bad ankles and these boots help with bracing up his ankles. The boots are amazing and a great purchase! We will be repeat customers.

Life saver

Last winter I snapped a bone in my foot and required surgery. A staple was set into my medial cuneiform bone which is a massive joint bone located on the inside of the foot, exactly where my tree spike sits. It's been almost a year and the injury still effects me everyday but buying there's boots have been a sort of saving grace as now I can finally spike the tree normally again. I think if I had the boots all along I may have been able to avoid the injury altogether. The boots are with every penny. Will buy again.

Well made but run large

Can't give a fair review because haven't worn these boots in the field. I ordered my normal boot size, which also happened to be the size the website sizing chart recommended. Unfortunately boots are at LEAST a full size, maybe a size and a half too big. I hate returning things but they are unwearable. If they were cheaper boots I might have stuck with it and cut my losses. Will have to wait for the refund and then order a smaller size. Also the wide is not really wide. These aren't going to be be the dream tree boot for people with wide feet. The toe box is still narrow and quite tapered. The width of the tread on the sole is also surprisingly narrow (Not that that effects comfort). Boots appear very well made, as one would hope for a 400 dollar boot. I just wish more retailers sold haix to avoid the sizing issue.

Admin 20 Oct 2020

Hi Duncan,

Thank you for taking the time to review the Protector Ultra Signal Red. We are happy to hear that you like the comfort and high-quality of these boots. We are sorry that you had some issues with the fit of the boots. That sizing tool is new and we are still working out the kinks so we apologize that it was not accurate. If you are ever unsure of sizing, we are always available to offer a recommendation either via the Live Chat or by contacting our Customer Service Dept. We hope once you get the correct size and put them to use you will be able to leave another review about their performance. Again, we appreciate your feedback and hope you will remain a loyal HAIX customer in the future.

These boots are amazing

I am a code compliance inspector and and I manage a vegetation management program for a municipality. I coordinate the program with inspections and manage a brush removal contractor. I injured my ankle and the height of the boot/ankle/lower leg protection design attracted me. They performed amazingly well. I hike trough chest high brush where I cannot see the ground surface. I have stepped in ruts and on rocks the would have defiantly injured my formerly injured ankle, and I can feel the boot absorbing the impacts. The boot is the right amount of stiffness and flexibility. The form of the boot and tread allows my feet to grip on steep hillsides with loose dirt and rock. I’ve had instances where only an inch of tread grips a steep slope and I am able to not slide downhill while maintaining grip. These are worth every penny spent.

I've now been wearing these boots for 2 months solid. I use my stuff HARD. Everything I own works for me it gets the can. I've owned and worn Chippewa, Carolina, highliners and my "go to" REDWING for about 15 years. I climb daily, I do ground work daily. I can without question say these boots are the best money I've ever spent on my feet. I have been breaking toe nails off with other boots, it's stopped with these HAIX boots. I was worried because the first few weeks I was soaking sold through and changing them twice a day. Customer relations not only suggested using wool blend but sent me a pair free of charge. If you're on the fence about buying these boots due to price, trust me on this one, pull the trigger.

Great boots for a Horse Logger

just 10 out a 10, ill save you all the vulgar explanative which describe how amazing these boots are. Every single person who has asked asks the same question. Comfortable? Too Warm? Flexable? Too Heavy?
I surprise every one of them with my answers. Yes, No, Yes, No
I harvest timber with a pair of horses so moving quick is really important, a lot of the time when the wood gets big you wanna be ready to get up and go with the ponies. Haix boots have delivered, I have 10 work days in them and love them. worth every penny. Any CS is great, free return, free shipping, complimentary discount codes to make sure the I wasn't loosing money from the return. CAN NOT SAY ENOUGH.

Hope they are as durable as they are comfortable. time will tell.

Protector Ultra Signal Red

Just finished off another day of falling with my new Haix ultra protectors, and my feet feel fabulous. As most people have noticed, the boots were quite stiff when they first showed up. I wore them around town casually for a day and they already were feeling softer. The boots shipped quite quickly (All the way up to Northern Alberta, Canada) and you could tell the quality of the boot right out of the box. Another nice touch was the follow up phone call from Haix to see if the boots made it and what my initial thoughts were. If you read others people comments, there are some small minor things like being a bit on the warm side, but totally manageable. The stiffness, but again, softened up right away. The two zone lacing is a great touch, it took me a bit to get use to 'unlocking' the bottom zone when removing the boots, but the ball bearing lace rollers work great. The sole of the boot holds quite well on wet aspen (which is great as I quite dislike corks).As I was selecting the review rating, I was trying to be really picky but then if I compare the issues to ever going back to my old Stihl rubber boots, these Haix are hands down 100% my choice. Assuming these boots will hold up as well as they look like they will, I am very happy with these boots. It took me three years to pull the trigger and purchase these, and boy I wish I would have sooner. Working in water, feet stayed dry. Working on logs, feet didn't slip. Much lighter then regular steel toes, which is a nice change for me. I was a bit worried about the sizing, but I find they fit much like a Red Wing. I have two pairs of Red Wings both size 9 and these haix size nine are right on the mark. I usually wear a 9.5 running shoe (Vans) but I told by Haix to go down a half size. All in all, these boots are amazing. If you spend lots of time on your feet in uneven terrain, you wont go wrong here.

Just a great boot

Most comfortable pair of boots I have ever bought. Even though not in the Forrester industry these make your feet feel good even on concrete. Will definitely buy again and recommender others.

23 Apr 2020


I am a wildland firefighter in Alberta and I have been looking for a solid pair of work boots that are also chainsaw certified. Crew members recommended these boots so I went out on a limb to try it (which was scary cause of the cost), but when I got them they felt amazing! My feet don’t get too hot, the break in time wasn’t very long, and they feel like you’re just wearing a beefy hiking boot! Would definitely recommend these boots to anybody working in the forest!

The only thing was that they were a tiny bit big to begin with, but once they were broken in, the laces were able to be tightened more.

Ultra logger boots

Very happy with comfort and over feel of the boot. Great buy highly recommend!

Perfect forestry boot

I’m a tree planter and every time I buy steel two work boots I know I’m going to have to buy new ones after a 2.5 month season. These after receiving them I can tell I won’t need to buy new boots for at least 4-5 seasons. Great quality, very comfortable, they’re fairly light, I have an ankle injury and it makes me feel so secure. Happy with my purchase!

11 Jan 2020

Protector ultra

Very comfortable after a short break-in time. Glad to have the extra protection.

Awesome boots

Most comfortable boots I’ve worked in ever. Love these boots well worth the price if they last as long as they say. Perfect for any arborist

Great forestry boot

I'm a climber arborist and this boot is amazing but don't climb in these as the eyelets will break. My eyelet broke the second day I had them but I called Haix and not only did they offer to fix my boots they sent me a second pair of boots! I love these boots and they are the most comfortable boots and they don't leave my feet sore and sweaty after a long day of work. Just remember if you're a tree climber get these for ground work only! I have the arbpro evo 2 for the climb then I slip into the haix for the groundwork. Worth it, haix has my business for sure.
