So i decided to look around, i've got a slight bit of money, from getting rid of some old stuff i don't need anymore, started browsing around and spotted 3 pairs of Magnum lovelies i liked.
1st candidate, Magnum Panther 8.0 boots:
zip entry over laces, comfortable (according to reviews) good looking, versatile, tough.
at that particular price, once they are gone they are gone.
2nd Candidate, Magnum Classics (loved them before):
Had them Before, comfortable, versatile, good looking, hard wearing, tough.
no zipper, the leather cracks at the back quite easily.
Magnum Amazon/Scorpion British Army Boots, desert:
Reliable, tough, good looking, versatile, comfortable at long distances.
No zipper, not sure if the particular ones are surplus or new they will be a ###### to keep clean.
OR i could wait it out a couple of months and get these, Magnum Elite Spider 8.0s:
AMAZINGLY good looking (to me) ventilation is always a bonus, good traction on the sole, versatile, reliable.
not waterproof, no zipper
I'll be using them for general day to day life, as well as long distance walking, running and light climbing, I don't mind getting another pair of Magnum Classics, knowing how good they were, I remember how bouncy the Classics were when i got them, they still are now it's just the Gash, the size and the squeakiness that's forcing them into the cupboard
but i would like to venture out a little, think outside the box but i really can't make my mind up over them i like all of them, Especially the Elite Spider 8.0 been eying them up for AGES.
Magnum do the best looking Tac/Work Boots Apart from Oakley, But Oakley are Ridiculously expensive unless they are Fakeleys.
I thought maybe a pair (or more) of impartial fresh eyes would help make up my mind
