HAIX North America recently obtained NTOA approval on its two newest additions to the HAIX law enforcement/military line-up, the Airpower P7 High and the Airpower P9 Desert.

Through NTOA's (National Tactical Officer's Association) Member Tested and Recommended Products Program, NTOA field testers put boots through their paces in real-life situations. This testing program is designed to provide law enforcement manufacturers with a process by which their products can be field tested and rated independently by the law enforcement community. Products must have an overall average score of 3 out of 5 to receive NTOA Field Tester Recommended status.

The HAIX Airpower P7 High is a 9-inch all-leather multi-purpose tactical/patrol boot that features the HAIX built-in Arch Support System. A waterproof yet breathable boot, it is lightweight with nonslip nitrile soles that are self cleaning, antistatic, non-marking and shock absorbent. This boot was recently approved for use by the New York State Police.

The HAIX Airpower P9 Desert is an 8 ¼-inch combination suede and nylon fabric waterproof boot. Anatomically formed and lightweight, the boot features the HAIX built-in Arch Support System and built-in leather reinforcement on both sides of the arch as well as additional leather reinforcement on each inside leg.

The HAIX Airpower P7 High and Airpower P9 Desert were on display at the Shot Show in Las Vegas, February 2–5, 2008.
