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 Signal Red 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 Signal Red'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 Signal Red 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 Signal Red 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 Signal Red 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 Signal Red 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 Signal Red 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 Signal Red 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.
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.Read more
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.
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.Read more
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 describedRead more
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 bootsRead more
There was an outburst of these on Instagram and I just had to find me a pair. Love them! Great boots.Read more
Awesome so far on the Ranch falling ,riding ,equipment operating.Read more
Out standing boot
Im so happy I bought a pair of these boots, we are outstanding pair of boots haven’t had a problem with them at all super supportive can’t even roll my ankle if I tried and they are comfortable to wear as well I cant think of a better pair of boots Buy.Read more
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.Read more
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!Read more
Awesome boot but you would sell alot more if there was more color options... brown!Read more
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.Read more
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.Read more
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.Read more
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.Read more
PULL THE TRIGGER
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.Read more
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.Read more
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.Read more
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!Read more
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!Read more
Very comfortable after a short break-in time. Glad to have the extra protection.Read more
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 arboristRead more
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.Read more
