I bought a pair of these from Amazon back in 2012. They were ok, but seemed a tad narrow for my feet, in accordance with the size. I was working in a desert environment during the spring and summer, and the boots started deteriorating after about three to four months, being worn every other day. I am 6', 225 pounds, so maybe that and the desert environment caused the damage. This was my experience. Good luck, maybe they will work for you.

These are really nice boots, but it is disappointing that despite side zippers, you have to fiddle with loosening the shoelace to get your feet into them, then tighten up the laces for a secure fit. That defeats the point of having a speedy side zipper. True, this may not be the case for your feet, since mine are a little thick arch to top. But not that much I do not think, since I have never noticed this problem with any other boots before. The full gusseting at side zipper and sole is very nice and overall I would really like to wear these boots, but I do not want to spend 5-10 minutes adjusting laces every time I put them on and take them off. Life is too short for that, so through the woods and over the hill, back to grandma's Zappos house they go!

These boots have a very comfortable fit. To my surprise they keep your feet warm in the cold weather and as the description states it to a "T" they incredibly waterproof. The only Cons, are the shoe strings and easy too scuff the toe area. The shoe strings will not stay tied for long periods of time so you end up retying them throughout the day.

I use these boots for hunting and they are wonderful! I am from Colorado and have used these in some of the roughest areas, rain, snow, rocks, everything. These boots hold together properly and I've used them a ton. They took a few times of wearing to get comfortable but once they loosen up...you've got yourself a nice boot. They look fine with a pair of jeans also, they have great traction and are very light. Get them, don't spend a lot on a boot that does the same thing. Zappos was great as always, got them quickly.

Great boot! He usually wears a 12 but they were too small so we sent them back and got a 13. They fit perfectly. He says the have good support and are comfortable. We loved the great way Zappos handles returns. The replacement pair arrived before the smaller pair were mailed.

They are holding up great in the winter snow. Salt removal is a breeze with these materials. For someone who works outdoors in the snow and cold, these will become your new BFF's. Great traction. Flexible support. Great quality.

These shoes were great for the first week that I had them. Maybe they're not meant to be worn on a daily basis with work attire, but they have already fallen apart within 5 months of purchase. The finish cracked and began to peel away at 4 months, and the foam sole compressed and wore within the first month. I had worn Bates shoes in the past and I was looking for another option for high-gloss dress shoes. These are no second option.

I ordered these boots as a gift for our son who is an EMT. The order somehow got mixed up and I received a pair of running shoes made for a giant. Called Zappos, and they quickly corrected the issue and shipped out the correct item. They emailed me a return label, and gave me a coupon towards a future order, to be used within 90 days. Correct item arrived, we shipped back the wrong item, immediately, but, 2 weeks later got an email asking where the return was and threats that they would charge my credit card if it was not returned. I called, only to find out the item I returned made it there, was duly noted on my account, and somehow was lost at their end. Not a good ending. Did not appreciate the threat of being charged for something I did not have.

As a senior citizen with arthritis, I appreciate the zipper on the side. That was a buying factor. The tab is thoughtful, also. The fit is just great. These boots provide the support I needed. Also, I can walk more easily. They are great boots!

I have had these boots for nine months. As others have indicated, they run half a size too big. Due to that, the leather has creased and cracked due to stress. The shoe laces have had to be replaced also. I would buy Magnums again, but in the correct size.

Very comfortable and sturdy boots. I wear them for 12 hours a day 7 days a week. Like wearing bullet proof running shoes. I'll echo they run half a size smaller than normal.

I have been in Private Security for 12 years and I have owned close to 15 pairs of boots (numerous styles and manufacturers). I stand a post or patrol 36 acres on foot for 12 hours a day and I have never had any problems with my Magnum boots. They are by far the most comfortable and Durable (I am on my 2nd pair in 4 years). My next pair of boots will be another pair of Magnum Stealth Force. My only complaint is that I wish they had a pocket for my boot knife.

These boots fit true to size and I have a wider foot and can still wear socks without squishing my toes. I use them for yard work and needed waterproof boots. It would be nice if they had put a finger tab on the back of the boot to help pull them on, as it is different to put them on if not opening the shoelaces a lot. Other than that, they are very comfortable and functional.

Great, comfortable boots. My only reservation is that the zipper isn't great for dessert conditions (i.e. Burning Man) because it has small teeth and isn't very rugged.

Very nice looking uniform shoe. Light and comfortable. This shoe is far better looking and much more comfortable than the Bates shoe that I previously had. I would recommend this shoe to anyone.

A great tactical at a lower price. I've had at least 3 pairs of these over a few years time. The walk I take is about 3.5 miles, at least 1 time daily. I might do three times a day on occasion. Some trekking around with up to a 50 lb pack for a few miles through cities, airports, etc. At almost 50, I'm about comfort, and I'll wear these for morning exercise walk, in suits at customer sites all day, afternoon exercising, and evening. They barely cool off before they are back on, and keep going. The height helps keep the old football ankles wrapped comfortably, all the time, love that. I also avoid side zips because they invariably have ended up hurting the ankle areas (injuries over time). Using lace up only helps avoid that issue. Just bought Viper II 8.0 from Z yesterday for the sole on them, smoother steet type tread pattern than Response IIs. Great all around boot for the low price they ask.

As with any Magnum product the quality is fair to good. These are a purpose use dress shoe and not exactly meant for everyday long term use. However, for their purpose they are crisp and sharp and the size is right on par with more comfortable shoes (I bought a 9.5).

Absolutely comfortable! Can take a hell of a beating and don't make my feet feel overly sweaty at all. Definitely rain proof! Think I'll buy another pair as insurance!

I bought these boots for the primary purpose of riding my Suzuki DRZ 400 Dual Sport motorcycle. My main concerns for my boot were: to find something very sturdy around the ankle, sole, and toe, yet comfortable enough to work and walk around in when i wasn't riding and also a side zipper for easy on and off in a hurry. I have had these boots for about 2 months. I am very happy with my purchase so far, no complaints. A little early to comment on long term durability, but flawless as of now. I wear a 13 and the fit was accurate and correct for my size. The sole of the shoe is very sturdy and feels good on the foot peg of my bike. I feel very comfortable going off road in these boots on very rough terrain. Boots are also a good fit for working and walking around in town, at the store, ect. Side zipper with pull tag works great and is a smooth pull up and down. Good amount of room to get your foot in and out of the boot, yet still zips up with a firm fit. Very solid toe construction and a supported feel around the ankle. Yet easy to maneuver your foot to shift/brake and whatever else. I haven't had these boots long enough to say they will last forever but so far so good. I wear these for riding my Yamaha ttr125 as well as my dual sport. Nothing but expected bumps and scratches around the toe. Comfortable for wearing all day working, hiking, fishing also. As of now, I would definitely buy again.

I received this boots a couple of weeks ago. So far they look very good. I have yet to test them in a ruck march. I intend to do so next week. I may update my input then. Appearance is good, comfort level is ok. They do not feel as snug as my Danner's when they were new. But they feel almost as light as my Vibram, and that is a plus. The sole appears to be more protective than the Vibram, so I expect more comfort from this Magnums. This are cold weather boots, but I don't like the worming about using the boots in a hot environment.
