Perfectly suited for all lifesavers. Your Airpower XR1 for heroes in the rescue service.
- The standard for your safety: EN 20345
- Stabilising thanks to AS system
- Maximum protection against liquids
- Made in Europe
The foundation for your protection
The standard for your safety: the EN ISO 20345 standard sets out the basic requirements that a work shoe must meet in order to be considered a safety shoe.
Maximum protection from liquids
You want to get safely through any situation – no matter what happens. The CROSSTECH® membrane from Gore® in your Airpower XR1 is not only waterproof and breathable, it also protects you reliably from blood and body fluids.
Secure hold thanks to anti-slip
The Airpower XR1 gives you stability in every position. To protect you against skidding, the sole of the Airpower XR1 with its special rubber compound and innovative tread construction offers extremely high slip resistance and grip on a wide variety of surfaces.
Robust and safe thanks to outer leather
The extreme robustness of the Airpower XR1 ensure your feet remain unscathed in the rough-and-tumble of everyday work. This is ensured by the resistant outer leather that cannot be damaged by pointed objects or sharp edges.
Midfoot support thanks to Arch Support System
The Airpower XR1 gives you a strong foothold throughout the workday, because the natural shape of the foot is supported by anatomically shaped lasts in the joint area. This is how the Arch Support System stabilizes your entire physique.
Breathable with Climate System
In the Airpower XR1 your foot can breathe, because a special foam system ensures that the air circulates in the shoe and moisture can escape. The Climate System works like an air conditioning system in a shoe.
Perfect fit thanks to flexible Lacing System
Your Airpower XR1 fits perfectly, because with the practical combination of zip and lacing you only have to adjust the Airpower XR1 to your foot once. The result: optimal hold thanks to the Lacing System.
Precise fit thanks to special lasts
The right shoe for your feet. Thanks to specially designed lasts, your Airpower XR1 fits perfectly and provides ultimate wearing comfort, the whole day long.
Different insoles are available for Airpower XR1 to increase or reduce the volume in the shoe. For this purpose, we have developed a slightly thicker insole for narrow feet and a slightly thinner insole for wider feet.
Our Vario-Wide-Fit-System allows you to adjust the volume in the shoe.
The Airpower XR1 has been tested according to the standard DGUV 112-191 (BGR 191) and is therefore approved for orthopaedic insoles.
This allows the Airpower XR1 to be adapted even more optimally to the foot and to support its anatomical structure.
The men's model of the HAIX Airpower XR1 is produced on a wider last to give wider feet more room in the shoe. There are no visual or functional differences here.
he men's model is recommended for wider feet due to the fit.
Thanks to Gore Crosstech, the Airpower XR1 is not only waterproof, but also protects against the entry of blood and body fluids.
The Airpower XR1 can be used in any work without any restriction.
The Airpower XR1 can be cared for quickly and easily. With black shoe polish, which does not impair the breathability of the leather, and a waterproofing agent, the shoe is ready for any weather. For this model, we especially recommend our black shoe polish, which contains Sun Reflect pigments. This minimises the heating of the shoe by 20%.
The uncomplicated care of the Airpower XR1 ensures long-lasting enjoyment of the shoe's quality.
You can find all the right spare parts for our shoes on our spare parts page.
We produce in a UK shoe size system. The distance between our half UK sizes is only a few millimetres. This makes it more likely to find exactly the right shoe length.
Half UK sizes differ in length by only a few millimetres.
You can simply wash the dirty shoes with water and a brush. Please do not dry the wet shoes (even if they are wet on the inside) on an open fire, a hot stove or a heater. This will change the shape of the shoe. Simply remove the footbed and stuff the shoes with newspaper or use a shoe tree. Then allow the shoes to air dry slowly. We recommend washing the footbed regularly at 30°. In general, it is best to remove the footbed from the shoes after every wear to ensure optimal re-drying.
Simply clean it with a brush and water and let it air dry.
From experience, the Airpower XR1 is a normal size. We therefore recommend that you choose the usual size.
Experience has shown that the shoe fits normally.
HAIX shoes are 100% Made in Europe. For us, this is not just lip service, but lived practice.

Problem with a zip
I've worn these boots every day for about 6 months. They have broken in and settled really well. In terms of build quality and comfort, I'd say that they are the best boots that I have EVER purchased - apart from one thing.
I bought the boots specifically for the speed with which they could be removed, thanks to the zip. (If I need to rig in a drysuit, I *thought* I'd be able to get the boots off in seconds).
About three weeks ago, the zip started to catch when I was taking the right boot off. When I eventually managed to open the zip, I looked for signs of damage, broken or damaged zip teeth and I checked that the zip wasn't catching on the laces or leather. It was all clear with no damage.
I now find that in order to open the zip, the boot needs to be pointed toe down and the zip more or less straightened - EVENTUALLY the zip functions after multiple attempts - which is a bit awkward when you're trying to get them off in a hurry.
Apart from that - they are terrific!
working in EMS for 8 years i've worn and ruined many boots. these however seem pretty damn indestructible and are the comfiest boots i've ever worn.
worth every penny!
Best boots ever
This is my 4th pair of Haix boots and 3rd of these. I work as a landscaper so on my feet all day. I used to go though boots at a rate of 4/5 pairs a year but since going to Haix a pair can last up to 2 years. They are extremely comfortable and very hard wearing.Weiterlesen
Incredable, worth every Penny
These boots were reccomended to me via a friend, i have been blown away by the comfort and the quality of this product.
I have been wearing them for 14 hours a day for work, now considering buying a second pair for home life for dog walking and out activities.
Delivered all promptly and in great condition.
I have only worn haix boots during my ambulance career so far, and generally I wear them for 5-6 days a week, in all conditions, they’re excellent for climbing, running and any kind of agility needed within the sector I work, they are good for making access to properties and have a full range of protection. They break in exceptionally easily, and become more comfortable than any safety boot I have ever had the pleasure of wearing.
The boots roughly last 18-24 months before irreparable damage such as splitting of the leather from the soles and issues around stitching at the seams where I have not been able to find anyone to fix them. Even the haix registered cobblers will not be able to fix. But this is down to incredibly heavy use.
Best boots you will ever buy, but get some additional gel or memory foam insoles too.
Had my last pair for 4 years. Lasted through many jobs, dry feet, never sore after being on deck all day. Great productWeiterlesen
Great piece of footwear, really comfortable, would definitely buy from Haix again.Weiterlesen
I work in EMS and we each get issued two pairs of these boots, I've had the same boots for the last five years and they have never let me down. Very comfortable, they keep me warm and dry in any weather.Weiterlesen
so far they are great boot
A friend told me to buy direct from haix as he bought the same boot from a third party and it seemed to be part worn. However i bought direct and am really pleased with the quality of the boot, ive been searching for a very long time for the perfect boot and found it, ya heh ! All being well ill try another spec of boot for different things in the future but ive definitely got the right boot for trucking and would reccomend it.....Weiterlesen
The best bots ever
I have had used a number of deferred bots in past but this one is deferent I can’t even compare with other once as they are outstanding! Really comfortable, now I know I will stay with HaixWeiterlesen
Overall tough boots
Very tough boots. I really like the zip fastening. I hope they live up to the abuse they get. Reasonably comfortable fit is as I expected. A heavy boot and seem exceptionally well madeWeiterlesen
Best Paramedic/ EMS boots
I have used these boots for years. Wearing one pair to their natural end. Sending them back to be repaired in Germany. They came back like new. I cannot as for a better product and an even better after sale service.Weiterlesen
Fantastic quality boots, comfortable and worth every penny!Weiterlesen
Comfortable and brilliant boot, will continue to use haix in thr futureWeiterlesen
best boots I've ever worn. Gone through countless pairs, but nothing matches this qualityWeiterlesen
Great book, but it leaked,
After a lot of research and questions i decided to get the XR1. I was not sure it would do what it said on the tin but was impressed with it, until i wasn't . shipping was 4 days after ordering so not bad. the boots for in in less then a day and felt great. I can say this is the only boot that after a 12 day my foot still felt good. after 9 days I was feeling like ai made the best boot purchase ever. On the 10 day i was ready to set them on fire. Well i would have if they went soaking wet inside and out. The 10th day was the first day using them in the wet. We'll tall wet grass anyway. within an hour they were wet inside. after all day my feet were cold and soaking. Called customer service for a return as it was obvious were the water was getting in and it must have been a manufacture issue. so used the included return label and sent them back. i had to get another pair of boots to use while these ere gone so not happy. after 18 days with no word from Haix i call customer service. Yes they got the boots. Asked well when are the replacements coming. Answer there not. Me, why not. Them, let me speak to a college. Them, now you have called we will issue a refund in two weeks or so. Me, Why can't i have a replacement ? Them, You will get a refund. Me, please can i have a replacement. Them, refund in two weeks. And on and on and on it went. It was like i was not even part of the call. I mean what manufacture issues a refund then tells you you will have to order again. So if i want my boots will have to order. At the cost of these things I will have to wait for the refund. So it will be almost 5 weeks till i get my boots. Great christmas time and and will take even longer. I included a note with clear instructions and asking for a replacement. made that clear on my first call to the service team. I even included my name address, phone number and email to make sue i would get a repose. Nothing, just silence and a convoluted way of exchanging boots. I mean this is the 20th century right? So not sure when i will get my boots but do like them a lot, as long as they don't leak. I work in the power industry so need hard earring boots like these but if there wet it a no go. Heres hoping someone was listening when said no refund just send me boots.Weiterlesen
I still haven't received my boots yet !!!Weiterlesen
Best work boots I've ever had
I'm a paramedic on my feet all day, these boots fit perfectly, no wearing in period. The zip feature on the front makes it easy to put on and take off. Impressed with the look, quality and finish of the boots.Weiterlesen
Gold Standard Boots
Haix are the perfect boots for emergency services, as a paramedic comfort and stability is vital in my shoes during 12 hour shifts and these are by far the most comfortable boots I have ever worn, the high sides make my feet feel secure so no accidental ankle rolls and the zip makes it super quick to put on. Now that I’ve worn these boots I will not wear any others!Weiterlesen
Great quality boots
After years of fitting zips to my boots myself great to have the work done for me. Tough but comfortable.Weiterlesen
Haix Super Foot Cushions
Say no more ... Been wearing these XR1 boots for many years now as a paramedic and won’t have anything else ... Comfort,Quality and functionality at its best ....Weiterlesen
Laces took a bit of getting used to but been wearing these 12+ hours a day for last 12 days. Very comfy and waterproofWeiterlesen
The most comfortable and easy to put on boots I've had. I often have them as my go-to shoe for going to shop they're that nice.
The only problem is they only lasted around a year, but having said that I do use them every day from railway work.
Also probably wouldn't go as far as to say that they are 100% waterproof.
Having said that I have just bought my second pair
Just had my boots and so far they are everything thing I expected and more. Perfect for frontline ambulance work.Weiterlesen
Excellent paramedic boots
