The new HAIX SCHUHE combat shoe
The new rangers of the French Army : A must in its class
The venerable Rangers had its day! Today, the new HAIX combat shoe is a modern product that rivals the best shoes available to today's action professionals without any difficulty.
As planned, the Centre d'expertise du soutien du combattant et des forces (CESCOF) has taken delivery of the first 30,000 pairs of Centre Europe combat shoes since the end of November, out of the 180,000 ordered, in order to continue the Army's plan to upgrade individual infantryman equipment.
This shoe is the result of cooperation between manufacturers, CESCOF technicians and the army's testing services (STAT - Army Technical Section, CEAM - Mont-de-Marsan Air Test Center).
It has also benefited from feedback from soldiers recently deployed in OPEX, as well as from studies of the models used by NATO armies. The various prototypes were tested in the worst possible conditions of use, both in specialized laboratories and in the field.
The HAIX SCHUHE CE combat shoe completely revisits the Rangers!
Compatible with the FELIN® weapon system and TAP missions, robust but light and comfortable, adapted to long-duration marches on a wide variety of action terrains and under different climatic factors, the CC CE was ranked 1st by the legionnaires of the 2nd REP in Calvi out of the six models tested in the tender.
Totally designed for the combatant in the context of his multiple missions, the French army's new combat shoe combines the best of available technologies.
