    Alright, so it's been about 2 weeks since i started wearing the Spider 8.1 Urban, and have since broken into them. Thus far, they are extremely comfortable, I've splashed it with alot of water, and it keeps my feet dry. It's a lot more breathable than A lot of other footwear that i wear, that includes working shoes.

    So i'll split this review into pro vs con

    Pro -

    Its extremely quiet, it's unbelievable. I was just playing paintball in the woods this afternoon, and i literally sneaked up on people while stepping on leaves, branches and basically anything that would otherwise make noise. Not the same on marble or polished floors though.

    The comfort is unmatched. I will never wear anything but boots from now on out, and if this is a precedent of other Magnum boots, I will definitely stick to them.

    Flexibility is also very good, i can bend my ankle easily without too much pressure or the hard parts of the boot cutting off blood circulation to the rest of the foot like some others do.

    It handles water pretty well, i could step around in mud and puddles and my feet would be dry. This isn't much of a concern for me, however, Ion Mask would've been a nice touch to these.

    Cons -

    Now, one thing i am very upset about this pair of boots is that the workmanship did not last. It would be unfair to be general about this, as the whole boot is still in great condition, BUT only the right boots rear strap handle is coming off. Apparently it's tearing at the cushioned layer where the leather meets the boot. I know its a small thing, and the boot itself is still holding up really well, but come on, only 2 weeks and this happened?

    On thing about this modern stylish design is that when you step into mud, it gets stuck in the cavities (especially where the fastroping plastic attachment is). It does come out, but you better arm yourselves with a hard bristle toothbrush.

    The laces aren't the best I've seen, but it's not too bad either. I've got a lot of callouses on my hands so it doesn't bother me. And i do tie my boots tight.

    conclusion

    Well, in addition to the stuff i wrote earlier, i will add another one in a bit.
