With BLACK EAGLETM, HAIX®
is breaking new ground with an entirely new product line. The sport
models of the German footwear manufacturer combine running shoe
technology with innovative functionality HAIX® is well known for. The BLACK EAGLETM
line is lightweight, sporty, and multifunctional. "Time and again, many
of our customers asked for a sporty and comfortable, yet functional,
shoe equally suitable on the job and off," says HAIX® CEO Ewald Haimerl. In developing BLACK EAGLETM, HAIX®
shoe specialists focused specifically on blending functionality and
comfort. Modelers gave these new models a sporty design and an aesthetic
look for just about any occasion. Its integrated GORETEX® membrane technology renders the BLACK EAGLETM equally suitable for indoor and outdoor use in wet or dry conditions.
BLACK EAGLETM comes in two different function and design
lines. The "Athletic" is characterized by a light, microfiber design.
The "Tactical" all leather series, on the other hand, is designed using
Sun-Reflect technology which minimizes the heating effect of leather in
direct sunlight. Both lines are available in three different heights for
use both on the job and off. The double hole frame system stabilizes
the foot, a built in stone shield prevents sharp and uneven surfaces
from pressing through to the foot, pronation support prevents the arch
from falling inward, an energy return system allows for maximally
efficient energy use, along with an oil- and gasoline-resistant rubber
sole. Interaction of the HAIX® climate system with the integrated GORETEX®
membrane ensures water-tightness and optimum breathability at the same
time. The speed lacing system makes it especially easy to put on the low
In one short sentence, HAIX® head developer Andreas Himmelreich neatly sums up the comments by the first wear testers: "That's the HAIX® shoe we've been waiting for."
