LEXINGTON, Ky. — If you are a law enforcement professional, you know how important footwear is when you are spending long hours on the job. You want a high-quality pair of boots that not only offers ultimate comfort, but also long-lasting durability. Now HAIX is giving you the chance to try out a pair of HAIX law enforcement boots and to find out for yourself just how good a high-quality boot can be. And HAIX is going to provide them to you free of charge!

HAIX, a worldwide manufacturer of quality footwear for the law enforcement market, is looking to select 1,000 police officers to weartest our HAIX Black Eagle boots. HAIX wants officers to feel the HAIX quality difference. That’s it. And what better way to do that than by giving 1,000 officers the chance to get a free pair of HAIX boots on their feet. HAIX wants each chosen participant to put our boots through their paces. And then, after four weeks of wear, give us feedback.

Each wear tester must be active in the law enforcement industry and be able to provide a wide array of testing scenarios in real life situations.

Wear testers can choose either the Black Eagle Tactical 2.0 GTX High Side Zip with GORETEX or the Black Eagle Tactical 2.0 FL High with CROSSTECH. Wear testers must be able to fit the HAIX size range (4 – 13 in whole and half sizes and 14, 15, 16 for men). The HAIX Black Eagle line is a unisex line, so women would order one size smaller.

HAIX will provide all boots free of charge. Officers are to wear them during the month of September, wearing the boots while on active duty. In return, chosen participants must tell us how well their boots performed by the deadline of October 15. Short, online wear test feedback forms will be provided by HAIX to make this task easier. In the end, all wear testers will get to keep their boots!

All feedback received from wear testers will be provided to Police magazine in order for the results to be published in a future issue.

To apply to be chosen as a HAIX 1,000 pair wear test participant, follow the link to sign up between August 10 and August 24. The 1,000 wear testers will be selected from all entries after close of contest and will be notified via email.
