  • Question for all Haix duty boot wearers

    Hope everyone is doing well! I'm looking for a new station boot and would like to give the Haix Xr1 A try. Problem is, none of our "approved vendors" stock any haix boots, so they will have to be special ordered. I've heard sizing is a bit weird, so I'm hoping someone can shed some light on it and give me your experiences with regards to sizing. My current boot is the Pro Warrington 3003 in an 11.5D. I also have some thorogood boots that fit and they are an 11.5 Wide. Any help is appreciated!

    Stay safe!

    I wear them and to be quite honest, they're the most comfortable boots I have worn to date. My old station boots are Redbacks, and my turnout boots are are Globe (don't remember the model offhand, the toe has like a flame pattern on it). I initially bought them just for wild land fires, but they are so comfortable and lightweight, I started wearing them every day.
    I wear an 11.5 wide but I bought these on the Haix blemish site and all they had was a 12 regular. No problem with the fit for me.
