    I have had my Elite Spider 8.0's since early January this year (2011) and I primarily bought them to get me through the famous Nijmegen marches in Holland (For those of you who are not in the know, Its a 4 day endurance walk covering 26 miles every day for 4 days, an amazing experience and true challenge!). I did all of my training marches in these, the qaulifying march at RAF Cosford( 50 miles over 2 days) and Nijmegen. So they've been used alot and taken a beating, so to speak.

    They have stood up very, very well to the long, arduous miles and roads of England and Holland! There is little wear on the boots from all of the use. Except on the inside of the heels, halfway through Nijmegen I noticed that it was wearing through very fast and at the end I realised that it was down to the last layer of material before my heel would have been showing from the back of the boot! This is quite disapointing seeing as I was of the impression that they were very durable boots and the heel would last alot longer than this.

    Although to be honest with you this is my only complaint about the boots, the rest fo the boot has survived unscathed and look like they could hold up for alot more. There is still plenty of tread on the sole of the boots and it looks as if its hardly been walked on.

    My favourite feature of these boots has to be the running shoe composure and last, this makes them incredibly versatile. One minute you can be running long distances on road and the next slowly trekking throughuneven forest ground on excercise!

    For the Price you pay you get a hell of lot from these boots, and it really is money well spent if your out doing serious work and need a boot to stand up to the challenges you face.

    The only way I think magnum could improve these boots would be to make the inside of the heel more durable, fi this was done it would make them a truely magnificant boot for many different situations you may face whatever job your in...

    I would definetly recommend them to my colleagues, friends and family! My Review is rather long winded but A short 3 or 4 line review doesnt give what i thnks a good all round review..

    I hope you found this useful :)
