Magnum Panther 8.0 Side Zip BootsThe Magnum Panther 8.0 Side Zip Boots are PatrolStore’s top selling boots, popular with police officers, security guards, cadets, emergency service professionals and volunteers. These boots offer a high level of comfort even for those on their feet all day. One customer said “I love my panthers, I’ve had mine for 2 years and they are just like slippers!”
With the added benefit of a side zip, these Magnum boots are excellent for ease of use. You simply adjust the laces, undo the zip and the boots slide off. They are equally as easy and quick to put on if you are in a hurry.
Comfortable and warm from the moment they’re first put on, these Magnum Panther 8.0 Side Zip Boots offer water resistant Magnashield leather and a hard-wearing nylon upper (non-waterproof) which is highly durable. Add onto this the high traction outsole which is SRA slip and oil resistant providing extreme grip, make these an all-round excellent work boot.
These 8 inch Magnum boots sit above the ankle and have a TPU (thermo polylurethane) reinforced toe box and heel counter for added protection. For extreme comfort, the moisture wicking lining keeps feet fresh and a removable and replaceable contour moulded insole provides underfoot cushioning comfort. In addition these boots also have a padded collar to give the wearer extra comfort during a long shift.
But don’t just take PatrolStore’s word for it, here are some of our customers’ opinions:
“From the moment I put these on they were the most comfortable boots I have ever had the privilege to wear”
“Side zip is fantastic and I wouldn't go back to normally laced up boots ever again. The boots are light and comfortable too.”
“Used to wear Magnums in the past and thought I'd try the new side zip type. Couldn't recommend them enough, light comfy from the start , not the usual week’s wearing in till they’re bearable. The zip is a god send to get off and on in a hurry this would be a bonus in different styles as an option. Patrol Store got them to me the next day, will come back when these wear out!!”
“Took them straight out of the box and wore them. Didn't need any breaking in. The zip feature is excellent and saves having to do your boot laces up all the time. Great price. Def worth the money. Very impressed. They make great patrol boots.”

ReviewsWrite your review
Have worn these for over 6 months and they're really comfy but still feel sturdy enough to protect me (even my dodgy ankle!). Have kept looking smart enough with a bit of polish. Generally very comfy, have worn well, great value and I'd buy another pair.
Thanks, Stewart - they're one of our best sellers. Glad you're pleased with them.
It's true from the moment I wore them really comfortable why did I not hear about them before now most of my work colleagues will buy these
For a doorman, these are the perfect fit for the job, lightweight & comfy.
I have tried hundreds of pairs in 22 years of door work, and these by far get the biggest thumbs up
great customer service
i bought a pair of boots in November and they developed a fault emailed patrol store and Stephen got back in touch straight away no quibble replacement with these boots which my mate is over the moon with i would just like to say the service was absolutely amazing will definitely use patrol store again thank you x
From the moment I put these on they were the most comfortable boots I have ever had the privilege to wear
Just like slippers
I love my panthers, I've had mine for 2 years and they are just like slippers. It's time for a new pair of boots tho. Been looking at others, but keep being drawn back to these cause they are so comfy. Live the side zip, cause u don't have to waste time lacing them up....... Simply zip and go
great boots, great service
These magnums are great boots. They are really comfy and are made with very durable materials. Also the service i recieved from patrolstore was second to none. I originally ordered a size 11 as i have wide feet (im normally a 10 but the picture of the boots on line looked narrow) i got the size 11's tried them on and yes they were too big, i returned them and recieved the exchange for a size 10 yesterday. They fit perfectly.
WILL DEFINATLY BE BACK
Good points first- side zip is fantastic and I wouldn't go back to normally laced up boots ever again. The boots are light and comfortable too.
However, all of this is rendered irrelevant by the poor build quality of the boot. There is stitching coming undone and worse, one of the soles have come apart after only six months of ownership meaning that the boot sucks up any water or puddles that I stand on.
My advice is to avoid and spend a little more on a better made version.
Damp and cold might be good in summer
I brought a pair of these a few months ago at first they felt great I couldn’t fault them in any way , then I found that they was becoming very cold and damp though the night a few months later , it came to the point at the end of my shift my feet was freezing and the soles became damp I had to remove my boots a few times through the night to try and warm them up and my feet to the matter , personally I cannot see no splits but damp is getting in them quite bad, some of the stiching has come loose but has not affected the boot, the side zip is good even though it looks weak it is quite tough to be fair , I am a bit disappointed due to this problem ,but in summer time they would make a good boot, hopefully I’ve just got a bad batch cause a pair of slippers would keep my feet warmer in winter
Excellent from the start and a good price too!
Comfortable and warm from the moment I first put them on! I was amazed, I simply adjusted the laces, took off, put back on and walked the mile or so to the shop. The zip for ease of use is fantastic!
The service from Patrolstore was first class! Will consider another set in this range and at this outlet.
Do not buy these
With 8 months of buying these the sole split letting water in at an alarming rate. The zip feels like it will come off in your hand when zipping up and the arch on the back made of webbing splits and exposes the inner sock. Very poor design by HITEC.
Panther 8.0 zip
Use to wear magnums in the past and thought I'd try the new side zip type, couldn't recommend them enough, light comfy from the start , not the usual weeks wearing in till there bearable.
The zip is a god send to get off and on in a hurry this would be a bonus in different styles as an option.
Patrol store got them to me the next day, will come back when these wear out !!
Quick to deploy
Great speedy delivery, and fully trackable. Got my boots the day after ordering. None of the usual niggles, not pinching toe, not crushing the top of my feet when the leather folds as you walk, not uncomfortable/annoying around the top. They are light and warm, sole contact on tarmac is not as quiet as I would like ;-) So far, GREAT.
Was looking for a new pair of boots and I remembered wearing Magnums in the army, so I thought I would give them a shot never knowing I could buy them for so cheap, I opted for the panthers with the side zip to save time and they are brilliant I ordered the boots and they arrived less than 24 hours later, what can I say but 5 stars for the boots and another 5 stars for Patrolstore and their courier thankyou, I couldn't recommend the boots enough.
Had the boots some five weeks now and from the first time I put them on they fit like a glove only had to adjust the laces once and they zip in seconds, I would recommend the boots to any one and they are very good value, 5 star.
Highly Recommended - Patrol Store and the Boots!
Having searched far and wide for a decent pair of general duty police boots, I ended up torn between the Magnum Panthers with side zips and the Magnum Stealth Force with side zips and CT CP (composite toe caps which provide greater protection than steel caps).
I had a chat with one of the Patrol Store staff on the 'Live Help' chat facility, who confirmed that both pairs were in stock in my size and that I was welcome to come in to the office and try them both.
(NOTE: If you're thinking of visiting them in person, it is worth calling to make an appointment and check stocks - they're predominantly an internet based shop, not a high-street shop. That said, they were extremely welcoming and even offered me a drink!)
On arrival, I was buzzed into the office and the staff member who I had spoken to earlier retrieved both pairs of boots.
I tried on the Stealth Forces first (here's a shortened link: http://bit.ly/peNWFy). I was impressed by how light they were for protective boots, and they felt unbelievably comfortable. They were also a breeze to got on and off because of the side zips. Having gone for a walk done the hall way, I tried on the Panthers.
The Panthers are even lighter, although not too noticeably. They are also equally comfortable, if not more so than the Stealths. (I can agree with other reviews referring to the slipper like feel!)
The side zips again made them really quick and easy to get off.
I was torn between the two different boots and had to go for a wander wearing one of each to finally decide on the Panthers. I choose them because of their slightly lighter weight, and the lighter price tag, which meant I could get two pairs of Magnum patrol socks with the boots for under the price of the Stealths alone.
Having got the Panthers home, I've put them on and adjusted the laces to my preference, which is pretty tight. Despite this, they are still very easy to get on and off the foot, thanks to the fantastic zip function, which I can see saving me hours of time over my career on these boots!
Over all, I could not recommend these boots, and Patrol Store highly enough. Especially at such a low price, you could very easily do a lot worse at a much higher price!
Very Impressed So Far...
My boots arrived this morning with a prompt delivery and a very professional transaction by Patrolstore.
the boots look exactly as they do on the pictures and i was impressed by the build quality and robustness of the materials etc.
The front of the right boot on mine seems to have marks on it, obviously can be sorted by a good polish but thought i would mention that.
The boots are VERY comfortable and that was immediately apparent as soon as i put them on.
The zip on the side is a very handy feature as you can leave the laces fastened and just use the zip to take on/put on which saves time if your in a rush.
Been for a 3 mile walk in the boots, took a risk and wore normal socks and hey.. no blisters, felt like i was walking the streets in my slippers (but without the homer simpson :] )
They offer good all round protection for the foot and when tied right and tight enough good protection for the ankle aswell.
Overall i am very happy with the product and the professionalism of the transaction and would definitely recommend these boots to anyone.. any recommend Patrolstore to Everyone.!
I look forward to continuing my beat with these boots on and we shall see what the future brings and how good the longevity of the boots are.
If I'm right all magnum boots come with a 12 month warranty..?? so there you have the peace of mind if anything does go wrong.
Magnum Panther-8.0 Side Zip
Excellent boots. Took them straight out of the box and wore them. Felt like slippers they were so comfortable. Didn't need any breaking in. The zip feature is excellent and saves having to do your boot laces up all the time. Great price. Def worth the money. Very impressed. They make great patrol boots.
Bought these boots, really cheap. Took them out of the box and very comfortable. Over all very impressed with product.
The shoe laces broke even though i used the zip to put them on and the sole of one of the boots has come apart at the toe - so i look like a hobo!!
This is a rare example considering the quantity of this boot we sell. Also as standard all Magnum Boots sold by us come with a 12 month warranty.Delivery Information
