Rated 5 out of 5 by Hodges Best Boots I Ever Owned!
I purchased these just prior to deployment, wore them for my year boots-on-sand. I've never had any boots to live up to these. Comfort: I could run in these babies as though I was wearing track shoes, everything from a jog to an all-out sprint. Breathability: Everybody's feet burned in the sand, including mine; but compared to other boots, these were amazing. Durability: I wore these boots DAILY. They were so great to walk in they became my preferred footwear, and I wore them not only throughout my tour, but for five years afterward, back in civilian life (Guard).
I was heartbroken when they finally wore out, and I kept them in the hope of replacement -- but they were misplaced in a move six years ago. A few days ago when I found them again.
Now, with the model and style information once more available to me, I'm here online to make another purchase of the best darned boot you can ever own if you wear your boots on a constant basis. I'll probably buy two pairs so I have one on hand just in case.
PLEASE don't ever stop making these!

Rated 5 out of 5 by MARK EXCELLENT COMFORTABLE BOOT
I purchased this boot after my foot surgery while on active duty in the military. I have very flat feet and was close to retirement. I had tried other boots to help with the pain I experienced with my feet, but found none that would help. This was the most comfortable boot I have ever worn. I was an instructor at the Army Food Service School, which required me to be on my feet a lot. The support of this boot was excellent. I was able to wear them daily and even though I experienced some pain, it was a vast improvement over any other boot I had tried. When I visited my father in Oklahoma I left them with him, as I was getting ready to order another pair of Magnum boots. He is the assistant fire chief for the Blanco Fire Department. He wore them and stated they were to most comfortable boot ever. He wore them until they wore out and called me to order him another pair. They were well made in construction and durability. They did leak slightly, but other than that I will never own a different make of boot ever. Great boot that will last and last.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Dunedain Ranger All Purpose "Go to Heck and Back" boot!
I have had these since before the summer started, to replace a set of Merrell Moab Mids. I hesitated to get another pair of 8" boots as I have force boots galore from the Armed Forces and Security Details. Without the steel toe or metal shank and in more porous leather, these have been the lightest most comfortable boots ever. Standing and walking all day is not a problem and I feel like I am kicking around in my marathon training shoes.
A great shoe that handles work at my state park, running errands out in town, or teaching classes in the field. I love them and when I can figure out which police boot you all make that mimics the Spider: I'm in!
Thanks for making great boots and I'll check in again when the boots turn one year old.

I saw these boots in a local store. I had seen tactical boots advertised but never bothered any interest. It was after a recent fishing trip with my father and cousin and walking down the beach in sneakers that I decided I needed a better option. With sand, water and just my feet being in pain I decided to take a look at these boots. From the moment I tried a pair of these boots on I was sold. I absolutely love these boots. They are so lightweight and comfortable you forget your wearing boots at all. I will admit I had never heard of Magnum before these boots but now I tell everyone I possibly can about these boots. I am currently looking at another set of Magnums work boots for my job as well. After the comfort I've experienced from these boots I wonâ€™t be looking anywhere else for boots.

Rated 5 out of 5 by gunnersm8 Great boots!
I bought a pair of these 6 years ago for a set of "knock-around" boots. I wear them everywhere, in all weather conditions, over varied terrain. Whether cutting grass, hiking, hunting, or just around the house, these are the most comfortable boots I own. My "go-to" boots, despite having several other brands.
I finally wore the treads down so far that they tend to let water in from the bottoms and decided I finally had to replace them. Sort of like losing a family member.
If I get another 6 years out of this pair, I will be more than satisfied! Great boots; comfortable, light, and stable.

I have been wearing the Elite Spider 8.0 Vibram Boots for the last 5 years. I will not wear any other boot. I work in construction and love the Vibram soles. I am constantly up and down ladders and walking roof tops. The boots are comfortable and last with the abuse they are under. Great Boot!!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by RGrandi Best boots for all day long and hard work
I bought these boots looking for maximum comfort and durability. I work in extreme environments. High temperatures, almost 55º C. Alternating too wet or too dry sections. Walking surfaces where the temperature reaches 110 ° C. Work routines of almost 24 hours. Hard work, heavy work, dirty work !!! And at the end of the day, it seems I was wearing slippers.
