Product information “HAIX Black Eagle Athletic 2.0 GTX mid/black”

Police officers, security staff and hikers spend a long time on their feet and frequently move across uneven ground. If you are involved in these or similar activities, you will need comfortable footwear that will not let you down inside or out. The HAIX Black Eagle Athletic 2.0 black GTX provides you with all the support you need to tackle different types of terrain and offers reliable protection to the feet. A slip-resistant sole ensures a firm grip on slippery, wet or oily surfaces whilst protecting against heat and preventing the penetration of moisture.

These functional shoes are a worthy successor to the HAIX Black Eagle Athletic 10. A three-ply GORE-TEX® membrane lining makes them waterproof and highly breathable. No warm air is trapped inside, even after an extensive walk in hot conditions.

The HAIX Black Eagle Athletic 2.0 offers optimum climate comfort. A removable antibacterial insole diverts dampness and sweat to the exterior and thus makes sure that no unpleasant odours can arise. This keeps your feet dry at all times. The HAIX Black Eagle Athletic 2.0 can easily cope with any situation, including when external or internal temperatures are high.

A firm grip in any terrain

Many of us need to master wet streets, stony pathways and slippery ground in the course of our work or leisure time. The HAIX Black Eagle Athletic 2.0 is highly slip resistant.  A durable outsole made of a special rubber guarantees a firm grip, a strong base and good adhesion virtually anywhere. The shoe also features a bold tread for extra traction.

A dual layer foam midsole gives optimum shock absorption by cushioning your steps as you walk.  This reduces pressure on the joints. There is also a special inset to protect the heel and to stop you from going over on your ankle. The laces are tucked away in a practical pocket on the shoe and cannot therefore catch on stones or branches as you walk along.

Perfect water protection

The Black Eagle Athletic 2.0 is a waterproof shoe which offers important protection for professional groups such as police officers and security staff. No metal is used in the manufacture of this shoe, which also features an outsole which prevents penetration of heat, cold, oil or petrol.

An upper material in textile and micro fibre provides lightness and breathability to deliver comfort of wear. The Black Eagle Athletic 2.0 features a lacing system which enables smoothness of movement and avoids pressure to the feet. This makes for easy going, even over bumpy ground. All of these characteristics mean that the Black Eagle Athletic 2.0 is also very much a favourite amongst mountaineering and outdoor enthusiasts.
