About the Elite Spider 8.0 Vibram®

When your line of work takes you to hot, arid climates, Elite Spider 8.0 desert tan desert boots have your feet covered. Durable suede and denier nylon uppers stand up to harsh desert weather, while the boot's breathable aero mesh lining provides ventilation to help regulate the temperature of your feet. A contoured, removable sockliner provides on-the-go comfort, and a Vibram® sole offers great stability and support.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LIGHT AND SLEEK LOOKING!!I received these boots from magnum boots as a gift. So in turn want to pay it forward. I am going to raffle these boots off and all proceeds will go to PTSD Veterans Of War. I can't thank magnum enough for there kind gesture and hope that they can honor size exchange for whoever wins this raffle. I also can't thank the Veterans and Active military men and women enough for fighting for our freedom. I have 2 active nephews one is in the Marines the other in the Army. May god speed n keep them safe.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great boots!I bought a pair of these 6 years ago for a set of "knock-around" boots. I wear them everywhere, in all weather conditions, over varied terrain. Whether cutting grass, hiking, hunting, or just around the house, these are the most comfortable boots I own. My "go-to" boots, despite having several other brands. I finally wore the treads down so far that they tend to let water in from the bottoms and decided I finally had to replace them. Sort of like losing a family member. If I get another 6 years out of this pair, I will be more than satisfied! Great boots; comfortable, light, and stable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pretty good boot. Better than the issued boots.I got this boot when my issued boots were torn up while deployed, I loved them, they did the job, were tougher than the issued boots and a heck of a lot more comfortable. They survived half a deployment in the middle east, then a year and a half of daily use back home and now they are torn up so I turned them into work boots (they still are in good shape just looks like they have been through a lot). I will be buying these again they definitely passed the tough test I didn't expect them to at first but they did.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from impressedSo far I am very impressed. I spent two long days hunting on Hawaii Island with my new Magnums. H.I. has challenged me we the roughest terrain I have ever negotiated around the world. It comes in the form of two different lava structures, smooth and rough. The rough is called a'a (ah ah) and it eats boots. A'a is not only abrasive, It is unstable under foot. No boot last's long here, but the comfort, lightness, and stability are great! I look forward to feeding these boots to Pele, It will be a worthy sacrifice. Your boots are great quality at a very reasonable price. Thanks, Harry

Rated 5 out of 5 by from All Purpose "Go to Heck and Back" boot!I have had these since before the summer started, to replace a set of Merrell Moab Mids. I hesitated to get another pair of 8" boots as I have force boots galore from the Armed Forces and Security Details. Without the steel toe or metal shank and in more porous leather, these have been the lightest most comfortable boots ever. Standing and walking all day is not a problem and I feel like I am kicking around in my marathon training shoes. A great shoe that handles work at my state park, running errands out in town, or teaching classes in the field. I love them and when I can figure out which police boot you all make that mimics the Spider: I'm in! Thanks for making great boots and I'll check in again when the boots turn one year old.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from AwesomeI bought these boots April 2009 before I went to Afghanistan and I still wear these boots till this very day. Sadly, I have to replace them due to wear and tear. But after a few years of abuse, these boots still hold up and are just as comfortable as the day I bought them. I highly recommend these boots to soldiers. Lightweight and durable are concerns I don't have to worry about with these boots.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from PERFECT FIT AND COMFORTThis is an excellent boot. From the moment I set my feet in them. Hunting or fishing! Doing some FXT with a militia group. It's my third pair; they do last well and take some serious abuse keeping my feet safe from bruising. I never give it a second thought as if I should have made a different choice of boot. I would like to see this boot with a composite-type safety toe.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from VERY SATISFIEDI saw these boots in a local store. I had seen tactical boots advertised but never bothered any interest. It was after a recent fishing trip with my father and cousin and walking down the beach in sneakers that I decided I needed a better option. With sand, water and just my feet being in pain I decided to take a look at these boots. From the moment I tried a pair of these boots on I was sold. I absolutely love these boots. They are so lightweight and comfortable you forget your wearing boots at all. I will admit I had never heard of Magnum before these boots but now I tell everyone I possibly can about these boots. I am currently looking at another set of Magnums work boots for my job as well. After the comfort I've experienced from these boots I won’t be looking anywhere else for boots.

I would like to order these boots for my husband, can you tell me if they run small or normal, he usually wears a 101/2 but that is not an option. I'm wondering if I should go up or down. thanks

Asked by: anne
I used to order this boot in 10 wide, several pairs in fact. But the last pair I ordered I could barely get my foot in so I ordered again thinking I got a bad pair or labeled wrong. Same problem. Something has happened to quality control in the past year.

I am a Police Officer I have a pair of these in Black and loved them unfortunately they are about ten years old and shot. I can't seem to find them in Black any where can you help me

Asked by: Gill
Hi Gill, We unfortunately do not carry the Elite Spider 8.0 in black at this time. You might consider trying the Stealth Force 8.0, style number 5220. It is a very comfortable uniform boot that is the closest to the Elite Spider 8.0 style.

Is there a local retailer were I can get these boots size 9 or 9 1/2?

Asked by: Cecil Haynes
Hi Cecil, You can search for local retailers by your zip-code on the Magnum website. Just click on the link at the very bottom of the page that says, "Store Locator". Once you find a retailer that is close to you, you should give them a call to make sure they carry the style you're looking for, because not all retailers carry our entire line of boots.

When do you expect to have the Spider Elite in size 11 Wide in stock?

Asked by: Flipper
We unfortunately do not have a date for when the Elite Spider 8.0 boots will be available in a wide size 11. You might consider the Stealth Force 8.0 (product # 5038), which is similar to the Elite Spider 8.0, and is currently available in that size.

I want a light colored high wookboot, but with a zipper on the side. Do you have one?

do you carry the spider elite 8.0 magnum boot in black? I have a pair that I need to replace and cannot find this boot in black. I've had them for several years and love them but I need black for wearing on duty.

Asked by: bob47
Unfortunately the Elite Spider 8.0 is only available in desert tan. I would highly recommend the Stealth Force series of boots if you need a black uniform boot. Product number (5220) is the non-waterproof version, most similar to the Elite Spider 8.0.
