    Ive been wearing these boots operationally for over 2 months now. And I love "dossing" around the camp in them, as they keep my feet cool in the heat, and dust free - which is what you want in a desert boot.

    However, in my honest opinion the boot is not very good for anything more than a gentle tab (march with weight) at the most. The toe protection in the boot is lost after the leather becomes supple and floppy, and there is no ankle support in the boot - because of the cordura textile that helps to keep your feet so cool. So its best feature is also one of its downfalls.

    Already with light use (I own other boots) this products stitching has started to fall apart in some of the nooks and crannies on the "tongue". I have also had friends who have been given this boot and had it fall apart on them - going through at least 3 re-issues until they found the pair that didnt fall apart. Thankfully I have yet to have the sole drop off - like one friend of mine. But something tells me that with the way I use the pair I own, this will not happen.

    So again - a very good boot for doing light duties in extreme heat in, maybe some gentle hiking or tabbing etc. But if your in the military, and like magnum, I really would recommend looking at their other (newer) desert boot range. As the new range seems to be heading in the right direction.
