  • HAIX® revitalises best-in-class forestry boot with increased comfort and wearability

    HAIX®, innovative manufacturer of protective footwear, has launched cutting-edge enhancements to its best-in-class forestry boot, The Protector Pro. The changes to the boot have been designed to make the working lives of outdoor and forestry professionals easier, safer and more comfortable.



    The updated boots maintain all of the trusted qualities of the original Protector Pro, but now features new design elements that offer wearers increased levels of protection and comfort. 


    The evolution is a more flexible, lighter weight boot, with a more aesthetic, modern style. It features a brand new, high-durability Rubber/PU walking sole, which guarantees grip even in challenging woodland environments and when climbing trees. 


    The Protector Pro 2.0 also boasts Class 1 Cut Protection certification (fully compliant with the EN ISO 17249:2013 + AC:2014 safety standards), meaning operators can work confidently with chainsaws and cutting tools.


    Made from rugged, high-quality bull-hide leather, the Protector Pro 2.0 is waterproof and highly-robust, featuring a GORE-TEX® membrane that keeps feet comfortable no matter the temperature. It also features the unique HAIX Climate System® - air circulates with every step so feet are kept cool even on long, hot shifts.

    The Protector Pro 2.0 offers new and improved features, without compromising on the trusted qualities of the original. These include:  


    • A 4-layer Gore-Tex® membrane and sun reflect leather treatment ensure optimum foot temperature all year round
    • A protective toe cap and puncture resistant midsole, which protects wearers from hazards
    • The new rolling eyelet lacing system, allowing smoother and quicker lacing, ensuring your boots stay firmly on your feet and are fast and easy to take off and put on
    • Cushioned PU midsole offers underfoot comfort, durability and excellent heat and cold insulation


    Simon Ash, UK Sales Manager for HAIX®, said “HAIX® is committed to perfecting the design of all our boots, innovating to ensure the continued safety and comfort of our customers. 


    “The development of the Protector Pro 2.0 is a great example of how HAIX® has worked hard to maintain the qualities of our forestry range, which wearers around the world have come to expect, while adding features that really address the real-life challenges faced by Arborists and outdoor workers alike.”

    I've been wearing Protector Pro's for years, I don't like change so wasn't too sure, but i have to say they have improved what i thought couldn't be improved. 15 years of wearing these boots, you can keep your fancy colours, get a boot that really does work and lasts.

    I used to wear protector pros but had several pairs that delaminated on the soles. Replacement boots did the same so I stopped buying them. Might try them again if that issue has been addressed as I thought they were otherwise very good.
