    Over 2 years ago I bought myself a pair of Magnum Elite Spider 8.0 in Black. I've worn them regularly during training, shooting and field training exercises.

    When I first put them on, they felt like a pair of trainers compared to my standard military issue assault boots. They fitted my feet perfectly and were so lightweight, movement was almost effortless! Normally I am a UK size 8, however, following advice from a review online, I was advised to buy 1 size down. The writer of the review was correct and the size 7 fitted my feet perfectly.

    In terms of care for the boots, I stuck to the simple application of boot polish. This was always effective in waterproofing the leather parts of the boots and giving them a decent shine. However, over time the surface of the toecap became scratched and scuffed and I was unable to find a solution to this problem, not even melting polish into them. The leather used for the boots has an almost 'furry' feel once scratched and this caused the boots to appear badly scuffed and caused remarks of 'poor turnout'. Over the 2 years the boots have obviously developed creases from the contours of the foot but the comfort has never changed and I have never suffered any blisters or issue with the boot.

    Therefore, my single criticism is the leather. It seems to scuff far more easily than my assault boots and is then irreparable which was irritation as they then appeared scruffy.

    That aside, an outstanding boot. 5 Stars!
