Great Boots with some problems
By Gordon 30/04/2013
I have to say firstly that these boots are extremely comfortable and great to look at. I would go as far as to say the are more comfortable than most of my trainers!! Which is great if you have to wear them for 10 hours at a time.They provide fantastic support to the ankle area.Share
When I joined the police in 2009 I bought a pair of these boots, a few months after buying them the velcro straps stitching, used to secure the zip, burst, and after a year and a half the zip itself eventually burst. So when it came to renewing them I specifically asked the retailer about the zip, and was told that magnum had addressed that issue, so I bought another pair.
After a few months the same issue occurred, the velcro strap stitching again burst. The thing is I dont even use the zip.
Another issue I encounterd was that a small part of the stitching (5mm) connecting the nylon to the the leather burst. This occured after 8 months.
Due to these issues I had to purchase another pair of boots.
All in all these boots are affordable, comfy and practical. I hope the issues I encountered are isolated incidents and they have not discouraged me from purchasing Magnum products or recommending them to my friends and peers.
