Response III 8.0 Side Zip Desert Tan is rated 3.1 out of 5 by 7.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Look like I need to find a new brand of boots. See that lace crossover on the tongue? Both popped loose the first day. Very poorly sewn. See those lace metal lace rings that hold the laces lower part of the boot? Two came loose the first three days, Now all but one have popped out of the leather. Very poorly secured into the boot. This is the second pair of Magnum boots in six months, last pair the entire lower sole that is molded to the upper came loose, this time the sewing and installation of the eyelets is so very poor. There will not be a third time.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor quality I purchased a pair of these boots around three months ago and the quality is miserable to say the least. The problems first started about a month and a half after I first purchased the boots. The soles started to tear and separate and show abnormal signs of wear under mild to moderate use. The final nail in the coffin for these boots was on a hike I went on over the past weekend. Around ten minutes into the hike the side zip on my right boot gave out. I expected a lot more for my money than what I got. I will not be purchasing boots from Magnum again.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Perfect fit I just got these boots a few days ago ... couldn't be happier. Once I got the right size, I was astounded by the fit. Despite the support they give, they feel like they were custom molded. They are so much lighter and comfortable, I literally forgot that I had boots on. My feet and ankles feel better with these boots on, than barefoot or any other shoe I've worn. I would give 5 stars but I can't testify to their durability.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from awesome boot I have bought magnum boots for 3 years now. I can say with my work style and just being a boot kind of guy I go through 2 pairs a year. The most comfortable aggressive boot you could ask for. I couldn't be persuaded to buy a different brand of boot. Thanks magnum boots. If it wasn't for you I would still be working with blisters and wet socks.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Less than a month old and already junk. Now admittedly I'm extra hard on boots due to my line of work (forestry). I hike through the woods over rocks, through brush, down steep hills etc. I picked up a pair of these boots for fairly cheap knowing they wouldn't be the best or last too long but I just needed to get by for 4-6 weeks waiting for other boots. Well I've worn them 2.5 weeks and they are now pretty much worthless. The sole is peeling off by the minute and I ripped a hole in the side of them. Not to mention they weren't great even before failing. The insole is junk (a piece of cardboard would be an upgrade, I honestly traced one out last night and was going to cut it out today), the midsole allows sticks and rocks to noticeably poke your foot, they don't breathe well (my full leather logging boots make me sweat less), and the traction on anything other then nice flat ground is garbage. Going back to the retailer to try to get a refund. My expectations were pretty limited but these didn't even come close. The only good thing I can say is that I didn't roll .y ankle while wearing these, but I normally have the same results with tennis shoes if I forget my boots.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from SUPER GREAT BOOTS ! I bought this pair of boots about a month ago, and BOY am I pleased with them. The main reason I bought them is because I have never worn a tie up boot in my whole 77 years here on this earth. Was a cowboy all my life, and I have always ( I mean ever since I was 5) worn cowboy boots. I injured my ankle seriously about ten years ago chasing "Illegal aliens coming across our Southern Border" here in Arizona. I put these new Magnum boots on when they arrived, and have worn them every day since. They have a super good arch support, are comfortable and extremely durable, They looked funny to me at first because I have always been used to pointed toe Cowboy boots, but my wife assured me they looked great. Lo and behold, after the second day of wearing them my ankle quit hurting. I have ordered a second pair, and will put them in my Toyota FJ Cruiser for when I want to go off roading. NOW, I will finally be able to walk with my wife when she takes her daily hike up into the mountains. Thanks Magnum from a very thankful OLD original American Cowboy ! NOTE - If anyone is looking for a pair of great boots, try these, you won't be sorry believe me.

Is the magnum response 8.0 desert tan water resistant

Asked by: Kojak
The Response III 8.0 in (Tan) is not water resistant due to the suede material of the upper. We do have the same boot in (Black), which is waterproof.
