    I went against the grain slightly the best part of three years ago now when I purchased some Magnum Elite Spiders.

    Initially I was taken by the look of the boots but soon fell in love with them. On receipt of the boots I put them on and suddenly felt like an Olympic Athlete, the boots were lightweight, comfortable, breathable and felt like I'd got the best pair of slippers on.

    I started wearing the boots and I honestly could not find any way to criticise the boot. I have had them for just over three years now and the only reason I am getting another pair of boots is because I have worn the sole down on them. I wear the boots to cycle to and from work, wear them for Searches, Foot Patrol and just about anything and everything I do.

    The boot has never let me down on grip, even now it remains sturdy, grips well and has worn down evenly still creating a good solid platform to plonk my size nines in. The seams, leather and textiles all remain in perfect condition except for one place and the same place on both boots and that is on the toe where Magnum have the semi-circle shaped toe end, this has peeled back and now operates as a scythe cutting the grass as I walk.

    My only criticism and I can hardly call it a criticism in fairness is that the boot offers very little water resistance. The fabric leaks in and when walking through fields or even just short grass the boot lets water in around the fabric and textile area. Also when cycling to work although the toe area deflects the water away again the same problem is had with water soaking to your feet. However with this said this boot isn’t sold as Waterproof although.....Magnum be very good if you make them Water Resistant.
