Haix has made affordable footwear since 1948. In 1992, the company switched its focus to firefighter boots. The shift to firefighter footwear was made after Ewald Haimerl, a deputy fire chief with Mainburg’s fire service, was unhappy with the rubber boots he and his colleagues had access too. Instead of sitting around complaining about it – Haimerl designed a boot that was functional for him and his comrades.
