Magnum Panther 8.0 – Side Zip Boot Review
The Magnum Panther 8.0 – Side Zip Boot is PatrolStore’s top selling boot, popular with police officers, security guards, cadets, emergency service professionals and volunteers.
Magnum Boots are synonymous with quality and good value for money. The Magnum Panther 8.0 Side Zip Boot has been created with these core values in mind.
Every police officer needs a good pair of patrol boots for when they are on duty and the choice available from PatrolStore covers 6” to 8”, full lace-up to side zip so that you can be confident that the police boots you buy will ideally suit your requirements.
Hi-Tec Sports was founded in 1974 in the appropriately named village of Shoeburyness, in Essex, England. Hi-Tec’s original success grew from the breakthrough design and development of Hi-Tec’s first ever shoe, the Hi-Tec Squash, specifically designed for the then fast growing game of squash. An industry benchmark then and now, few shoes in athletic footwear history have recorded unit sales of over 18 million pairs worldwide to date. The Hi-Tec Squash remains Britain’s all-time best selling sports shoe model to this day.
Hi-Tec Magnum was born in 1982 because of a demand from the FBI training centre at Quantico, Virginia, USA, for lightweight, athletically built black tactical boots. Until this point the officers were wearing the Hi-Tec Sierra Lite Hiking boot but the request came for an all black, high top version with a shineable toe, giving birth to the original tactical boot constructed using sports shoe materials.
Please see the below Magnum Panther 8.0 boot video.
The ever-popular Magnum Panther 8.0 Side Zip 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 (not steel, so airport friendly) 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’ comments about Magnum Panther 8.0 Side Zip Boots:
“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.”
The Magnum Panther 8.0 Side Zip Boot are tested and certified to European Standard EN 20347 for occupational footwear and come with full EN ISO 20347:2012 OB E FO SRA certification.
These patrol boots therefore offer protection, safety and style all at a price that won’t break the bank. Try on a pair of Magnum Panther 8 Side Zip boots for size and value.
