Magnum Elite Spider Boots Review
The Magnum Elite Spider 8.0 Lightweight Tactical Boot ranks as one of the lightest boots in the market and features a breathable membrane that puts many of its rivals to shame.
Magnum Elite Spider Boots are one of the lightest, quietest and most athletic item of tactical footwear ever made, yet still exceeds CEN European Footwear standards and is designed to meet the needs of the highest level elite tactical professional.
As far as boots go, there has rarely been a better time to be a member of Police, Security, Law Enforcement or the Military. Choice is everywhere and you can easily find yourself some appropriate footwear for any job you’re given.
When the choice between very similar styles presents itself, sometimes it’s best to be guided by the brand and there are few brands more recognisable than Magnum.
Magnum Hi-Tec have been making boots for Law Enforcement since the early part of the 80s and have been one of the forerunners in taking feedback from their customers and using it to innovate their styles.
Magnum’s Elite Series have often been considered the top of the line in their Military range and for good reason – the Magnum Elite Spider 8.0 Lightweight Tactical Boot lends itself extremely well to any situation where you need to be fast on your feet.
Taking some ideas from popular sport shoe brands, the Elite Spider 8.0 boot is cushioned in all the right places for ease when running or climbing and you can tell that the team behind it have taken into account that a good ‘action’ boot needs to put the wearer’s comfort as the priority.
To see a short video of Patrol Store's Aran describing and showing you these Magnum Elite Spider 8.0 Boots please see below.
These Magnum Elite Spider Boots have an upper made from full-grain leather combined with a breathable Aero Mesh fabric, a padded half bellows construction tongue, a padded Aero Mesh cuff and ankle for comfort, and stiffened heel and toe box for stability and protection.
The boots are lined with a Spidermesh fabric for breathability and there is a removable EVA comfort contoured insole for support and shock absorption.
The outer sole is a Vibram unit that exceeds European standards for oil, slip, acid, alkali and heat resistance, and is very quiet in use, whilst still giving superb grip on a wide range of surfaces, and doesn’t clog too quickly with mud etc.
In the sole build you also have a lightweight Stabilaflex composite shank/lasting board for controlled stiffness and a compression moulded EVA midsole for shock absorption.
The Magnum Elite Spider 8.0 Lightweight Tactical Boot is built on a running shoe last and has a curved or rockered sole and, with a chamfer to the heel, this all allows a natural running or walking gait.
The Magnum Elite Spider lacing system uses lightweight durable composite, non-metallic eyelets – 8 pairs – and 2 webbing loops at the ankle flex notch.
The Magnum Elite Spider Boots are not designed to be very waterproof. Rather they are designed for drier/warmer conditions. Light, yet fully supportive, comfortable from the first wearing and giving great grip on most surfaces, the Spiders are well up to Magnum’s well-proven standards.
Being non-metallic Magnum Spider Boots won’t set metal detectors off either, making them suitable for security and airport staff alike.
Lacing up high above the ankle, Magnum Elite Spider 8 boots provide maximum support and reduce the chance of sprains while traversing rough terrain. Its unique tread offers the utmost traction. Combine the rugged durability with a max comfort contoured sock liner and the result is a comfortable boot that can handle any environment.
The Magnum Elite Spider 8.0 Lightweight Tactical Boot’s construction suits specialist tactical operational missions by keeping officers light and agile on their feet.
Available from a size 5 to a size 13, these boots are suitable for men and women alike.
Comments About Magnum Elite Spider 8.0 Boots
Customers have been quick to recommend these boots:
“I work as door security so am on my feet all nite and my old boots were starting to leave me with sore feet so treated myself to these boots and they are outstanding. They are so light it unbelivable as they are lighter than most normal trainers i have worn and so comfy – feels like a pair of slippers. Big thumbs up to Magnum “
“The running shoe midsole gives these boots an extremely cushioned ride; these boots are comfortable enough to run in regularly if needed. I wore them tabbing for several weeks straight; very comfortable!”
“An initial review of the Magnum Spider 8.0 tactical boot. Light, strong, practical, and comfortable indoors at room temperature or outside in the bone chilling cold. These breathe, but even spending a half hour in -7*F (-22* C) my feet stayed warm. You can’t ask for much more than that. Slip resistance on ice is good, but not exceptional.”
“Nice boot for everyday use. Light and fast as well. Haven’t fully broken them in yet though, so I can’t attest to their durability. Comfortable as far as cushoining and fit. The cushioning isn’t too much or too little. It seems just right.”
The Magnum Elite Spider 8.0 Lightweight Tactical Boot is EN347 Compliant.
