love those boots
change the laces to leather ones first and foremost, these boots are a bit on the heavy side but for station boots i love them, i would not suggest using these on a wild land fire, the traction on the boot will slip in wet mud. use wildland boots with vibram soles on wild land fires.

Last boot I'll ever buy.
The Haix Special Fighter Xtreme boot is amazing. I only wear very high quality boots and am incredibly picky when it comes to work footwear as a professional firefighter. Working for a department that runs a wide range of calls from structural firefighting, high volume EMS, HAZMAT, and large wildland fires, these boots offer features that make them perform at a top level. The only reason I'm rating these at an 8 and not a 10 is because I had high expectations for the Climate System. My feet tend to sweat a good amount and at the end of a long shift I can be a bit uncomfortable because of this. I was hoping the climate system would alleviate that, maybe not 100% but some, and I personally don't feel like it makes much difference. I haven't particularly noticed any difference wearing a boot with a "climate system" as Haix advertises it so that was a bit dissapointing as it was a big selling point for me. I wear this boot as a daily station boot and on all calls ran with the exception of structural fire fighting. My department issues Globe tech boots for our tech work and wildland fires. Once my Haix boots were broke in I used them on a decent sized brush fire and felt they were far more comfortable. I even find myself wearing them a good amount at home on my days off, so much in fact that I'm considering buying a second pair just to use for personal use outside of firefighting. Thank you Haix for making such an incredible boot and please do not ever stop making the Haix Special Fighter Xtreme as they are currently are. I recommend them all the time to everyone and plan on wearing them the rest of my career as long as Haix makes them the way they are made today.
Haix , i wanted to send you folks a testimonial about my haix boots i own. i was given a pair of the 504204 special fighter extreme boots for x mas back in 2008 and i started wearing them in september of 09 and i cant say enough good about these boots the quality of these boots out does all other they are the most comfortable boots i have ever had the support my ankles and the have not failed me one time. I am still wearing my first pair and the souls are just now starting to show wear two yrs later no other boot that i have ever had has done this. I can normaly wear out a pair in a yr but not haix there german made and the germans make great stuff. I will always haix no matter what they are worth every penny you pay for them. I have bought a second pair to put when these do weat out.
