Footwear For Every First Responder
HAIX® Special Fighter USAR boots give maximum protection and comfort for those who put their feet at the front lines during an emergency. Tough and dirty terrain, heat, water, and more are nothing for the HAIX® Special Fighter USAR boot. The European design is complemented by exceptional quality materials and specially designed technology to keep your feet clean, dry and safe. Fast lacing, Sun Reflect leather, and a steel toe cap work together to protect your feet. The CROSSTECH® Secura Liner acts as a barrier between your feet and spills of various types.
Upper Material For the Toughest Environments
On the inside of these HAIX Special Fighter USAR Factory Seconds, safety and comfort are supreme with the Secura Liner® which ensures that your boot lining will not wrinkle, pull up, or pull out. The liner is a specialty fabric which includes CROSSTECH®. This is designed to keep your feet cool and dry. It is also water and blood borne pathogen resistant. The HAIX® MSL System incorporated into the sole gives the boot the light feeling you love and the shock absorption that you need. PU foam is injected throughout the sole and offers excellent heat and cold insulation. An anatomically created steel toe cap protects feet from damage while offering rubber padding to prevent toe problems. The mid sole also gives the boot a work safety edge. It is made with stainless steel, which is flexible enough to allow more freedom of movement while protective enough to safeguard you from the dangers of puncture.
What Makes the Boot Fit?
Special Fighter USAR is made from HAIX® Sun Reflect leather, which keeps your feet cool and directs sun away from your boots rather than into them so that your feet are more comfortable when working out in the elements. These boots are designed for the best possible fit, with the HAIX® Fast Lacing Fit System to ensure your foot and leg area are as adjustable as you wish, without feeling constricted. It also helps you to pull them on quickly when time is of the essence. You will enjoy the flex zone, which is designed around the tongue so that your foot can move more freely when kneeling, climbing or operating machinery. The outer profiled rubber toe cap ensures the boots resist abrasion longer than the average steel toe shoe.
Insole, Lining, and Footbed Make Search and Rescue Duties Easier
The insole is designed to be anatomically formed to your foot for ultimate comfort as well as easy to change. Throw your insoles into the washing machine after a tough day on the job to give them a quick refresh and to keep them like new. HAIX insoles provide great moisture absorption along with quick-dry properties. The TEXON fleece footbed offers superior ankle support in an anatomically formed design.
Sole for the First Responder
The HAIX® Special Fighter USAR boots have a sole which keeps you safe with a high voltage resistance of 18 KV. Constructed of nitrile rubber which is oil and fuel resistant and a specially designed self-cleaning tread. Dried mud and small stones in your tread will be a thing of the past. The tread pattern gives optimal traction on a variety of surfaces. Foam-injected into the sole guarantees better shock absorption and insulation.

One pair good next not so much
I had my first pair of these boots and loved them. Best pair of boots from out of the box to wearing with no break in period needed. The only issues with first pair was the laces don't hold up well and had to be replaced after a couple years. I brag about these boots to everyone. So when the first pair finally wore out and started coming apart I researched a lot of other boots but couldn't find any that gave me what these boots did with what I needed in a pair of boots so I decided to stick with these proven boots. The second pair didn't last 3 months before failing me and coming apart. So if I have any recommendations about one of the issues with these boots it would be to reinforce the lower loops for the laces and use stronger laces that last longer. Will I buy these same boots again? I am not sure at this point because I sure loved my first pair.
We appreciate your comments on the Special Fighter USAR, FS. We apologize that the second pair did not serve you as well as the first and that you've had some issues with the loops and the laces. I am not sure why this pair failed so quickly, when your others served you so well. I will definitely pass your concerns to upper management for consideration. I certainly hope this will not deter you from considering HAIX again in the future.
