Magnum Boots USA Spider 8.1 Tac Spec HPi Tactical Boots


Magnum Boots USA


Tactical clothing has come a long way and tactical or combat style boots have seen the biggest increase in performance over the last 10 years.  Boots that used to be hard, clunky, heavy & ugly are now light, airy, supporting and attractive to wear.  Over the last several months I have been wearing tactical boots anytime I step out of the house whether it is going down to the lake for a bit of fishing, camping or just a quick run across the country for a meeting.

Magnum Boots graced me with a pair of the Spider 8.1 Tac Spec HPi I won in a contest from thier company.  They had no idea I was a blogger, I won the contest and got a $1000.00 worth of gear and quickly spent it on a complete new wardrobe including pants, shirts, socks, workout shoes and a pair of these boots. My feet have been quite happy ever since.

The Spider 8.1’s are light, breathable and extremely comfortable.  They are light enough to run in and have enough give in the sole to be comfortable enough to wear all day whether you are in the field or on the street. They also look attractive and provide the kind os support you need in your ankles when teh going gets rough.

The only thing I can complain about is having to unlace them when standing in line going through TSA Security.  The good news is that they are easy to slip on when I am all done with the security check. I would recommend upgrading the laces in these because they are just not as good as the boots themselves but that is my only real complaint.

These are great boots for a reasonable price and the sole on these boots is made for tactical work like rope climbing and SWAT teams.  These boots hold tight on just about any surface you can run across. Magnum boots have long been made for men in the line of duty and yet I am wearing them in the field and in the city and I wont make any apologies, they are comfortable, they look great and give me the support I need whether I need it or not.
