Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good boots exceptI have bought at least 8 pairs of Magnum Panther boots over the last 2 years and rate them very high for the most part. They wear good I walk close to 10 miles per day on my job and am up and down often in my job duties from the squating position to back up walking again. The boots hold up good except the stitching at the back of the boot where the leather and the mesh meet if you could fix this problem it would be great. I hate throwing away a perfectly good pair of boots for that reason only.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Great Pair of Boots for Work and PlayI have been wearing Magnum Boots since 1995. I bought my first pair through Big-5 Sporting Goods. I have used these boots at work and in the great outdoors they have performed greatly in both fields. I found the Boots to be very comfortable and they held up very well in various conditions (Wet and Dry, Hot and Cold conditions). I stand behind these boots as they have performed very well for me. I am 64 years old and still wear my boots on a daily bases.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from BOOTS MADE FOR WALKINGThis is my first pair of Response II 8.0. For the last few years I have worn the boots with side-zipper. They were good boots but there is something about these boots I just purchased today. They do not have the zipper but that is okay, I believe I made the right choice. I work a 12-hr shift at a prison doing a lot of walking and standing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from GREAT SHOEHave been wearing these for about 2 weeks now and have been feeling great! Going to go out and do some holiday walking so that will be the long distance test. I have not had any chance to test these shoes tactically, via airsoft, but I will soon.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Need new lacesAfter the first time that I wore the boots I noticed that the laces and started to fray about 2 weeks later the outside part of the laces snapped as I was putting on the boots. I feel like the laces should be more heavy duty on boots that need to be tied every time the boots go on. Other than the laces the boots are great. They did not take long to break in and they were really conformable. They do hold a polish quite nicely after day to day activities. Overall it's ac great boot.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor quality for magnumI bought a pair of these about two years ago. I normally always bought the stealth boots but then the price of those nearly doubled so I tried a pair of these. First off, these boots hurt my feet a lot. I had to buy dr scholls insoles for them and never had to buy insoles for any of the stealth boots I ever bought. Secondly, the black plastic coating the covers the leather of the boot started peeling off and looked terrible. I never had a single problem with any stealth boot peeling because I don`t think they ever had any kind of cheap coating on them. Thirdly, the glue that holds the soles to the boots started to fail and the soles are coming off, they look like clown shoes and you can see the white stitching on the underneath of the boot. I`ve been a magnum customer pretty much since the company started and always held their boots in high regard because of the quality. Sadly this line of boot fell apart on me by just wearing them as everyday footwear. I ordered a new set of classics giving hi-tec the benefit of the doubt since I am a long time customer, but I`ll never stray from the classic/stealth line again and will avoid this particular boot like the plague.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 30 year old Magnum bootsI bought a pair of Magnum 8" boots and have used them fairly regular for 30 years. Granted, I have taken care of these; but their have been times when I wore them daily for work. I am now getting ready to purchase another pair to replace my old ones. Only reason rubber soles are finally getting worn out. The rest of leather, etcarr almost good as new. Very light in weight also. These are my only boot used for motorcycle riding. Love em, you will too!!!
