Add a Review Elite Spider 8.0


  • Feels Like a Running Shoe...

    By Mike 14/09/2010

    As a new member of the Official Field Tester group, I was offered a pair of boots from the program for free. Magnum was temporarily out of the current 'tester boot' in my size and one of the representatives (a big thanks, Alexis!) offered some choices as test boots. I asked for an Elite Spider 8.0 in Desert Tan. I had been thinking of buying a pair of tan boots, instead of the normal black, for the summer anyway -- after all the price was right.

    The initial review is my first impression of the boot right out of the box. I have had it for about a month and a half now and wear the boot at least 6 out of 7 days, with many weeks all 7 days. The boot is extremely light; you can hardly tell you are wearing a boot, yet it gives an amazing amount of support. It is sort of like wearing a bedroom slipper or a running shoe in terms of weight, yet you have all the ankle and arch support of a heavy leather boot. The best of both worlds in my humble opinion. For me, support is very important. I walk my fields and barns, climb on equipment and the like often, and am on very uneven terrain almost daily. A twisted ankle is the last thing I need. I was worried that the light color and suede finish would get dirty and discolored quickly but after nearly 36 days of use they still look great. I will continue to update everyone as time passes on the amount of dirt and wear scars they accumulate over the next several months.

    The lacing system is awesome. There is an extra little loop inside the opening, an extra lace point at the ankle that keeps the toe part of the laces tight and allows for easy lacing and unlacing of the upper several holes to put the boot on and take it off. Good job, Magnum! This is a great idea and makes the lace up boot almost as easy to put on and remove as one with a zipper. Don
