    I bought these boots to replace a very old but trusted pair of Magnum Phantoms for which I have had several pairs and that gave excellent service.
    So I have had this pair in use for about 6 months in what I think can be a very harsh environment; construction sites, which is why I selected the CT/CP version which exceeds the site and H&S onsite requirements. They have proved a worthy replacement for the Phantom indeed have excelled them. The external Leather upper, is strong , and waterproof indeed I like the bellows tongue which ensures dry feet when walking through puddles. They are easy to clean and maintain and despite all the chemicals I have to walk through and there appears to be no deterioration with the leather or the stitching. Some of the construction sites are at airports and I have to access both airside and landside areas and have to go through security so the use of non-metallic hardware is a bonus. The strong and robust soles deal with all situations; walking in mud then climbing ladders etc.. The soles remain clear of excess and slippery mud and are ensure a feeling of security from slipping in any situation. I am heavy and therefore am heavy on the wear of most foot soles but Magnum work much better than most in this area although it would be good if there was a refurbishment service available at least for one recycle of sole etc. My favourite improvement is the memory foam ant-bacterial sockliner which is both comfortable for the length of time I use the boot each day; 12-14 hours per day; and six days a week. I can honestly say that the anti-bacterial treatment works and there are no smells from these boots despite the length of time I use them. These boots have proved excellent value indeed i have recently purchase another version; Magnum Stealth Force Leather 8.0 CT/CP boots which I'll use more during the colder periods and have just broken them in although they need very little breaking-in to be honest. Will review the 8" pair in the near future. Wonder if there is a harder wearing slightly thicker but as flexible sole particularly for the heavy user? Would like to see the rubber toe bumper raised slightly higher and as mentioned earlier a refurbishment service. These boots are an excellent boot and good for normal and particularly extended periods of wear.
