A New Adventure in Military Wear – HAIX Announces COMMANDER GTX Combat Boots

Just had this press release in. Obviously I'll be seeing if I can get a pair to review!


HAIX, specialist manufacturer of functional safety footwear, announces its latest addition to its range of rugged and hardwearing military boots – the COMMANDER GTX.

Armed forces personnel are on the move around the clock, crossing a variety of challenging terrains. That’s why HAIX® has designed the COMMANDER GTX boot to deliver exceptional functionality, without compromising on comfort. The sturdy leather boot can withstand long marches hauling a heavy pack while offering exceptional support and comfort.

Military wearers expect all their gear to provide the highest standards of utility and protection, wherever the action takes them, and footwear is no exception. Constructed from hydrophobic, breathable leather, the waterproof upper keeps feet dry, with Sun Reflect® technology working to reflect the sun’s rays and reduce internal boot temperature, keeping feet cooler. The boots’ GORE-TEX® Performance inner lining maintains waterproofing while being highly breathable, ensuring wearer comfort through all seasons and long periods of wear.

Being constantly on your feet throughout a day patrolling through varied terrain puts the lower body under high stress. Foot injury and pain is not only a massive hindrance to morale, but can also lead to long-term conditions that can put personnel out of action, from lower limb disorders to back pain. The dimensionally stable sole unit and HAIX® 2-zone lacing system give wearers optimum pressure relief, cushioning and muscular support, ensuring correct foot posture – essential for maintaining comfort and minimising the risks of strains or long term foot injury.

The COMMANDER GTX has slip-resistant Rubber/PU soles that guarantee traction across surfaces, even those covered in petrol, water or oil. The torsional support ensures stability on every surface, without compromising on the flexibility necessary for the natural movement of the foot. The superior bending comfort and grip make the combat boot perfect on and off duty, from intensive training sessions to adventures on leave. The robust rubber bumpers at the toe and heel extend the combat boots’ resilience, with protection from abrasion, giving the boots improved longevity.

“Theory is one thing. Practice, however, is quite another. We develop our boots with a quality of workmanship that reflects the support, comfort and durability needed by those facing the reality of the field,” says Simon Ash, HAIX® UK sales manager. “Combat boots are often associated with discomfort and injury and we’re proud to break that perception. The COMMANDER GTX boots are designed so that you’re ready for action, wherever and whenever you’re needed, and you can rely on boots that work to keep injury at bay”.

Dammit! just bought a pair of Lowa's, I have some Haix work Safety boots that fit my feet well, with minimum fatigue during the day, the Lowa's are good but feel a bit hard on the soles if I wear them all day.
Hopefully you'll be able to get a review pair.

Only in black on the company website so far. Which is a shame; they do look rather swank.
Also just had it confirmed that this is accurate.

We've also got a pair to review so @Ravers will do the honours. We all know he's pretty impoverished and is short of a decent pair of boots so it seems a reasonable thing to do .....
