The First technology is a new partnership for Magnum with Michelin. The Michelin Sole on The magnum strike force Waterproof Side Zip is made from Michelins high abrasion Work Outdoor Compound. The Anti Slip Tread Pattern is inspired by Michelins Power rain and Pilot Alpin Tyres to give excellent grip.

There is also a special arch design for better adherence and a side sculpture for maximum support.
The Michelin outsole on the Magnum Strike Force WP, offers Comfort, Flexibility and Support, Optimal braking and a specific antislip design for both indoor and outdoor use.
The Second technology is Magnum’s Recoil Midsole. The Recoil midsole gives 40% higher Rebound than standard EVA midsoles so each step you take is easier and more cushioned, ensuring ultimate comfort and performance.
The Recoil Midsole offers Sport shoe cushioning technology in a uniform boot for instant and all day comfort.
The Third Technology is Armourgel the ultimate impact protection. Armourgel is exclusive to Magnum and was developed at imperial college London and is a revolutionary energy absorbing material.

Great mid-price boot with outstanding feel and lots of features
Sergeant, Response and Tactical Team
I have been wearing Magnums now on and off for the last 15 years. I have seen how each new boot takes off from the last. My last boots were top spec Haix which I got a lot of wear from and had no grumbles.
The new Strike Force boot has my favourite feature of modern boots, the full side zip, which is what has tempted me to come back to Magnum. I have found with pretty much all my previous Magnums I have been able to get them straight out the box and wear them no problems with little or no “Break in” time. This was the same with these and although a solid boot I was able to get them on and get out on a 9 hr shift. The laces needed a bit of adjusting but otherwise a very comfy and supported feeling straight away.
The obvious feature about these boots is the armour gel panel on the side. The whole boot is a robust firm boot in the first place with an added panel for extra protection. I must admit I’ve been messing around hitting it and the gel works well without altering how the boot moves. I would query its location and hope that a future boot would put this gel panel across the tongue to protect the top of the foot while still being flexible. I can’t recall any previous boot offering as much protection around the ankle while still being light. I found the boot suitable for a mixture of tasks from office based, driving and foot patrol. I was fortunate to experience a wide range of weather conditions in the short time I have had the boot and again could not find fault. It was warm while not letting my foot sweat and kept the water out from puddles and rain.
The look of the boot is classic Magnum with the Gel panel mounted on the outside covering the ankle. The boot is a mix of panels but they are big and plain so the boot looks good while being easy to keep clean as a result.
Although it was the side zip that made me get these it’s the sole which is the real winner of this boot. I have never known anything be so reliable irrelevant of surface. The sole offers the 4x4 experience of boots. I found previously that some boots will let you down on a wet indoor surface the old night club toilet being one which springs to mind. Not these though, you feel you could literally walk up a glass wall. I have had no problems at all with the grip and so far they don’t appear to be wearing away in any particular spot.
These are a great mid-price boot in my opinion, they have an outstanding feel and offer a lot of features. The quality is good and can’t see any other boot in this price range matching these. A great boot for anyone wanting a bit more than a basic boot.
