    I've had the Elite Spider 8.0's for nearly a month now for constant civil and military duties, and I must say, they are really useful.

    1. Favorite features:

    a) Weight, Grip & Support
    They are lighter than my sneakers, yet give double the support and grip, aka. they are "Parkour Approved"

    b) The looks are mean, yet solid
    You can easily use them as shoes without anyone noticing you're wearing something that is specifically meant for the military.

    c) Works in all weather conditions
    When I bought the boots, it was relatively dry and warm. Now there is half a meter of snow outside. Most people would put their desert boots away, but I decided to give it a try, and what do you know, they behave better than normal winter boots (keep your feet dry and warm) and don't even need much special treatment to do it.

    d) "Auto-Cleaning function"
    I don't know if I'm the only one who noticed this, but it is pretty cool, the soles just simply do not get dirty, no matter what do you do, when you get home they are perfectly clean as if you just took'em out of the box.

    e) No Smell
    After spending three days in the forest (Mil. Exercise) without taking the boots off for not even one moment, there was no smell inside the boot. What's even better, there was none on the socks either, which probably means the ventilation is really good.

    2. Value
    As always, we want good things to be cheap, this one seems to fit the criteria, since I got mine for just over 100 Eur which ain't much if you consider the fact that they stand up to anything that comes their way, which means that the boots are worth every penny.

    3. Standing up to the elements
    Well, there are many things they do, so I'll keep it short and just list them.

    a) When tightly on, no water gets in.

    b) Slight color distortions when you apply pressure to a spot (i.e. someone steps on your toes).

    c) Cold/Warm - No freezing or overheating occurs with these on, your feet are kept at just the right temperature.

    d) SNOW - When it comes to stepping into meter deep snow, these boots seem to be in a class of their own, the stuff just comes off and there is no way it seeps in over the edge.

    4. Things to note

    a) Do NOT drag your feet in rocky and sandy areas, the top fabric tends to go ugly and rough pretty easily.

    b) Do NOT go on a longer hike without properly running/walking the boots in. Unless you want blisters of course.

    c) Use clean socks (little stones can mess up the memory sole).

    5. Conclusion

    If you want boots that are cheap, comfortable, lightweight and fit with the ACU, then these are definitely the way to go. These boots aren't for show, they are for action.
