    I took the bold step, pardon the pun, of breaking in a new pair of Magnum Shield 8.0 WPI by going in at the deep end right away. The second I laced into them I felt the reassuring snugness of this well-made heavy duty boot. I knew then that the fit was right, ankles supported, and instep secure and sole comfortable.
    Let me describe that days test from a boots point of view. Stood at the briefing, no room to sit as ever, the boots were comfortable, sturdy yet supple enough to allow the gentle rock back and forth which is the secret to getting through a day on your feet. Then a drive to the location, no trouble with the pedals, despite looking rugged the boots are very well proportioned. Short run to the door, foot slammed against the bottom of the door bracing for the hit of the enforcer. The door relents and into the building, floor covered in dirt, chemicals and other nastiness but thanks to the fantastic tread on these boots no slips during a rapid entry. Floor littered in broken glass, screws and nails the deeper in to the building we go. Lots of bending down while bagging plants, no issues with the position of the steel toe cap, all looking good so far. Removing the equipment and a 25.5lbs transformer falls from a wall right on to the toes, no accident book entry needed, just a toe cap wipe on the back of my leg. Heat is 80 degrees plus with high humidity, feeling no adverse effects yet. Back in the van and back for a long sit down typing up the reports. End of the new boots day, how did they cope?
    I had to think hard about what to write here, in truth while doing the job I hardly noticed my new boots. That’s exactly how it should be in my opinion. If you’re thinking of your boots as you do a job, things can go bad. Since that first days wear these boots have done the same thing a hundred times over and I haven’t noticed them on any occasion, excellent.
    A lot of thought obviously went in to designing and producing a boot to protect the protectors, happily there was no loss in translation from design to production. Well fitted, very tough indeed, secure and look the part, what more can you ask of a boot?
