Not a bad product
on 10 August 2008
Not too bad at all. Good grips and a well padded shoe for winter walking, hiking or manual work outdoors. One of the big problems with magnums has always been that the grips wear down after a very short time though I haven't had them long enough to see this I can say from my former pair (which were a little higher than these advertised) that it is true.
value and comfort wise these are a very good boot. As I say the grip does wear down quickly so you may find yourself buying a new pair soon.
I would just like to add to this review which I made nearly 2 years ago now. Magnum have really improved on the grip of the boot and the grip is a lot better. Its much more durable, holds on ice (So if you work outdoors its a massive bonus) and its much more solid. The comfort level is also much better and the boot itself feels lighter than other similar boots. The major problem this time is the sponge at the rear of the boot that protects your achilles heel wears down quite badly so you almost end up with a triangle carved out of the boot. This doesnt really effect the boot much and for day to day use its really not much of a problem at all however if they sorted that out and got some decent quality material at the top rear of the boot I would be giving this 5 stars because they are one of the most comfortable boots I have worn.
