Stealth Force 8.0 Side Zip Waterproof Ion-Mask™ is rated 4.8235 out of 5 by 17.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good To The Last ZipI got my boots in February last year as a replacement set for another pair of boots that were splitting. I wear them for everything from work to EMS calls to even going out, they're that comfortable. The boots have survived 2 Illinois winters only to be failed recently by a zipper that came apart. I never had a problem with my feet getting wet while wearing these boots with the only "waterproofing" done is an occasional coat of polish. The only thing that would make these boots completely perfect would be a better set of zippers and a little stronger velcro on the top strap. These boots are well worth the price

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Just picked up my 3rd pair.As in the title I just purchased the 3rd pair tonight. I am neither in law enforcement or any kind of emergency services. I do walk on concrete floors all day long. This line of boots, is hands down the best, period. They are the lightest, most comfortable boots I have owned. 10 hours a days, 40 hours a week, no stinkfoot either. I would wear these all day every day if needed. My one and only complaint is that you still havent figured out how to get past the lace keeper made from a piece of fabric at the midpoint of the laces, we cant get a d-ring riveted in there or something? Dont get me wrong this minor annoyance will not prevent me from buying a 4th pair! But 3 pairs and still no fix, means only 4 stars. Keep up the great work!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great comfort and durabilityI purchased a pair of these 9 years ago when I began my career in law enforcement. Since then, I will not buy anything else. Each pair lasts me about 3 years. That's 3 years of chasing/fighting suspects, standing in puddles at crime scenes in down pours (feet stay dry), and everything else a 16 - 25 hour shift can throw at me. Best boot I have ever owned! Comfortable boots are key when you work on your feet. I always tell new officers to never look at the price of a boot when shopping. You can't put a price on a good pair of boots!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great boots for comfort and longevityI am a Paramedic in Chicago, Illinois so my demand of these boots was quite high. I had seen a couple CPD officers with them and they said they performed great. I ordered these and have been quite happy every since. The scuffs are polishable and they say comfortable for a long time. I have had mine for 2 solid full time years and am just now looking to replace due to a bend in one of the zipper links form a knock around earlier in the week.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My favorite boots. period.They are very durable, and the most comfortable boots I have ever owned. They are great in all seasons, and from city terrain to the woods. They breathe in heat and are insulated for the winter, albeit warm socks are reccomended. The way they wear, they do not cause any chafing or sores on the ankles like many other work boots do. They wore very well from the first day to a year later. I am absolutely getting more of these.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from SecurityLove Magnum boots but these boots only lasted 6 months before the outer leather started to separate from the base. (Wet feet in the rain). With the same wear and tear as all the previous Magnum boots. The zippers on the sides made it easy to take off the boots but you still had to unlace them to get them back on. As far as comfort: I walked 40 hours a feet about 8 miles a day and the comfort never went away.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ground PounderI have owned two pairs of the model 5870 for one year now. These boots have held up exceptionally well. Wearing one set of boots every other day, up to 12 hours a day. They show very little signs of wear. That wear is located between the base of the laces and toe box area. The crease that forms at the flex point. With routine cleaning and polishing per Magnum instructions. These boots are in outstanding condition. The material part of the boots is in excellent condition and without any unraveling or piling of the material. All seams are intact and the side zippers look without wear and function perfectly. The soles have only slight wear on the posterior margins of the heels. Being a Registered Nurse who works in a very busy Surgical Recovery Room, these boots have held up exceptionally well. My feet stay comfortable even after a long day. I do change my socks a few times a day. Merino wools sock at that. Just a personal thing. It enhances the foot comfort. That model 5870 works as advertised. These boots also double as my motorcycle riding boots. Hence the need for a waterproof boot as well. Yes, I ride in all weather. Rain included. My feet stay dry and warm. Even as the temps approach freezing. The 5870 is a very well thought out and engineered professional style boot. The price is right, too. Search for the right dealer to find an excellent price and free shipping, too. My next pair will be the model 5854 Spider 8.1 Side zipper boot. Currently on order. Initial report to follow.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from GREEEEEEEEEEAT!Just bought these this weekend. Put them on the first night and I thought they would be a B**ch to break-in. Ended up wearing them for 15 hrs that day and I'm in love with them. Probably the most comfortable and easiest to break-in. I've been wearing Steel-toed boots for the last 42 years and by-far the best so far. Can't wait to see how long they last!

Greetings, wondering if you have different sizes for this boot? Looking for a size 9.5 US. Regards, -A.

Asked by: Adrian M
We are unfortunately out of stock in size 9.5 at this time. They will be available again in mid December. You might consider the Viper Pro 8.0 Side Zip Waterproof boot (Item Number 5474). It has also received very high reviews from our customers and is comparable to the Stealth Force in many ways.

How ideal is this boot for running?

Asked by: GipsyDanger
The Stealth Force 8.0 boots are an athletic inspired boot. It fits and feels very similarly to an athletic shoe. If you are in a dry climate I would recommend the non-waterproof version, as it will be more breathable and help keep your feet cooler. However, the waterproof version is still breathable and will be great for wet areas. It features an EVA midsole, which provides great cushioning, much like most athletic shoes on the market.

Yes they do. The webbing itself is the same waterproof technology as the outside of the boot.
