I checked to see about posting up the review I wrote and I can't because it is copyrighted, but I think my point gets across above...

Airforce standards allow for any boot as long as it's solid black with no logos, 8" or 10". the local base now sells more of these than matterhorns or danners because the nylon lets them breathe, and they're a lot cheaper to replace. If you get them wet, it wont ruin them the way a solid leather boot will deteriorate.

My Magnums lasted about as long as my Itasca's, just under 5 years of heavy use.

Where did you all get your Magnums from? The only ones SpecOps sells is Size 8 and that's too small for me, so now I'm looking around for them



I know you posted this a long time ago, but go to www.shoebuy.com
they have insane prices (Usually 10-20 bucks cheaper than anywhere else) and shipping is always free



P.S. - COMMIES SUCK!!!!!

I got my Magnum 8" boots for $40. I wear a size 12 but I have wide feet for a size 12 so I usually have to move up to a 13 to get a shoe to fit comfortably. But the Magnums are wider than most and I love them for it. Their size 12's fit me perfectly. They're super comfortable. I would wear them every day but they aren't exactly "business casual" as required here at the office. I have some shorter profile boots for that, hah. But that's fine because they'll last longer. I pretty much only wear them on weekends and when playing.

Little bit of necro here, but it's on topic, so no problem.

Tyger, you ever get around to that in-depth review?

Cool. I just got a cheap set of knock-off military boots that are working surprisingly well. I actually bought them on the way to the field, because I forgot to take off my slippers at home, and I didn't throw my boots in the car. Paid $30, and they worked great. No blisters, despite some pretty hard play.

ive been a long time magnum fan and i have to agree with everything said here, including that they are not the best boot on the market. that part is true, you can do better as far as combat boot wise.

I do like magnum for the out of box feel, the breathability (again not the best), and the customer service with the company (this includes the gun section of highpoint). Considering the ease it is to find magnum boots in most any city/geographic they are hard to beat for the price.

Im a try before you buy type person that lives in a minorly populated area and the high end stuff typically comes from internet orders or random gun and knife shows but magnums are in at least 3 stores in my town/poor excuse of a city.



good decent boot but not the top shelf.
