    I've been using Magnum boots for the last few years in a few different jobs and I always seem to come back to the Classic.
    The first time I put on a pair of Classics I knew they were the boots for me.
    Solid build, comfortable, fantastic ankle support and brilliant quality. I wore them everyday until the were completely destroyed-it took nearly a year (out matching previous brands of boots by over six months).
    When they finally died I knew it would be an easy choice and went out and got another pair.
    However recently I bought a pair that didn't last as well, the stitching came loose after a few weeks- not enough to warrant a trip to the bin, but not the quality I was used to.
    After that pair of boots was retired I went out and purchased another pair of Classics (what can I say, I'm a creature of habit) thinking my previous pair were a one off (can't be perfect 100% of the time after all) and I bought my current pair of classics.
    Unfortunately a similar issue has risen with this pair as well as the stitching on the lower part of the boot is coming loose and the sole has developed a squeak when I walk.
    While this is not the end of the world, it has knocked the classic down in score from a solid 9 to a 6.5-7.
    While I do recommend Magnums on a regular basis, and still recommend classics to people who start out in my hobby and job (airsoft), I just hope the Magnum see and resolve these small issues before they become big ones and damage the reputation of an otherwise great product.
