    Review: HAIX Protector Pro boots

    CONs:
    • A bit big, very stiff when new.

     

    For the last few weeks I have been wearing the HAIX Protector Pro boots. The first thing that I noticed was how comfortable and WARM they are. I do suffer with cold feet and found my previous boots (Meindl Airsteam) very cold on any but the warmest days. 

     

    I initially thought the HAIX boots were slightly stiff, though this improved very quickly.  I found there was no normal "breaking in" required, my feet were very comfortable from the first time I put them on.

    The Protector Pros are quite big boots, and although I initially thought they were quite clumpy, they actually offered great ankle support and general foot protection. I think you would really struggle to twist your ankle when wearing them,  and a dropped log bounces off with no injury to your foot. 

     

    They are a very tall boot,which I have previously not been a huge fan of, however I was very grateful for  this height  last weekwhen we were more than ankle deep in a very wet muddy field and my feet remained completely dry and toasty warm all day. They really are 100% water proof!

     

    They don't have a big heel, but work extremely well with spikes.With my previous boots I found the heel too small and the gaffs would on occasion move back, which was a pain. This isn’t a problem with these HAIX boots. . Their stiff sole really helps support your instep when spiking.

     

    The sole has excellent grip, climbing on greasy logs is no issue.

     

    So over all I'm very pleased with my new boots, they are a bit chunkier than I would ideally like, but this actually provides a lot more advantages than disadvantages, IMO.
