    I needed a set of lightweight boots that were authorized by US Army 670-1 regulations. These boots appear to do that and I have heard no problems from my chain of command. Issue boots, as well as the other high priced brands I have tried, are made well -- but at the expense of being very heavy.

    The first thing I noticed when I received the Elite Spider 8.0 was how light it was. I actually put them on a scale and found that they were only a few ounces heavier than my lightest New Balance running shoes! They were comfortable right out of the box and needed little to no break in.

    I have run several miles in them wearing full battle rattle and never gotten a blister. Ruck marches don't faze them either. The Vibram soles have held up amazingly over the year I have had them and used them on pavement, sand and woodland terrain. No breaks in the stitching or fabric either. Again, these boots wear like sneakers and support like boots. Very breathable and cool in the heat.

    If I could change one thing about them, it would be for Magnum to offer a version of this boot that is waterproof. I would like that version to look the same and not like the HPi model to ensure that it maintains compliance with 670-1.

    In addition to my duties in the Guard, I am a full time LEO in a city department. My next set of boots will probably be the black leather version of the Elite Spider 8.0 to see how they hold up in a more urban environment.

    Overall, I wouldn't hesitate to recommend these boots to anyone. Downside for now is that I wish they were waterproof and so I keep another set of boots handy in case they get soaked.

    Search around and you will not find a lighter boot with this durability at the price it is offered.
