The Specialist for Functional Shoes: HAIX

Innovations, High-Tech Production, and Shoemaker Know-How

What do the legendary New York Firefighters, the fire fighters in Mexico City, Hamburg, Moscow, and Cape Town as well as the German GSG 9 Counter-Terrorist Unit, military units in Europe, the United Arab Emirates, and Afghanistan have in common with aid workers in worldwide emergency response operations after earthquakes or tsunamis? They all wear shoes produced by HAIX.

When HAIX CEO Ewald Haimerl took over his parents' shoe making business in 1992, he had a vision. The shoe specialist from the Bavarian town of Mainburg wanted to see the HAIX brand compete in the global market. Less than twenty years later, this vision has come to life. HAIX is considered a top brand of functional shoes for fire fighters, police, and task forces worldwide. With numerous patents and new product developments, the global player from Bavaria is ready to set new standards with regards to functionality and innovation.
