    I bought a pair of these boots after a colleague recommended them. On initially wearing them i can honestly say i was quite impressed. They were lightweight, comfortable straight from the box and had some great features such as the lace lock etc.

    I knew that they weren't waterproof as such, but having used them whilst out on patrol in wet weather they held up pretty well, with just a slight amount of leakage near the tongue.

    After a few months i noticed that the padded area material at the top of the boot, near the tab that you use to pull the boot on with had started to come away and the padded filling exposed. I contacted Magnum and they very kindly replaced them. I hoped that this was a one off

    I have had my second pair now for about 5 months or so, they haven't had as much wear as the previous pair due to a change of role. Again comfy straight from the off. I have now noticed that they have gone again in the same place. Also the material on the instep (fast rope system) of one of the boots has come away from the sole and the rubber detail around the lace loops has also come away. Not overly impressed and i would appear that build quality or quality assurance isn't all that its supposed to be.

    It would be better if the material by the tab should be extended right around the top of the boot rather than joining it at the tab.

    Im in two minds whether to recommend this boot due to the above. Yes! they are extremely light and very comfortable but their durability isn't that good
