Hey everyone,

I am looking to buy a new pair of boots, as mine just arent cutting it (damn blisters) I have no idea what to look for, so can anyone suggest a brand/cut/ and or style? (by style i mean jungle etc.) Thanks.

I have a pair of 8' Magnum Stealth with the side zipper. Phenomenal boot, fits like a running shoe and is insanely comfortable.

Zippered boots arent all that good, zippers tend to bust out.

For me, I wear Magnum Stealths, Danner Acadias an the standard Jungle an Desert Boots. Served me well so far in the Army.

There is no best style or boot; everyone has different feet so what works for someone might not work for another. Check out a good surplus store that sells new boots try a few on, etc.

Thanks for the advice everyone.

Anyone know if magnum stealths do good in a forest environment?

Duty boot VS Field Boot

You have to buy boots according to their possible use.

Duty Boots ( like what police wear ) are made for an urban environment, and for driving.. they are typically light weight.. have a tred optimised for use on concrete and ashphalt, Often they come with a side zip option.

These boots are great for street wear.. and even everyday wear and for indoor and urban OPS.. they are not a field boot and are not a good solution for someone who plays in the field more than in urban/indoor environments.

Do yourself a favor and buy a good field boot. If you want lighter weight and breathability, get a good quality "jungle" boot or a "desert" boot.. there are lots of good quality surplus Arid Environment boots out there now.

as with everything that you will stake the protection of your body on.. buy the absolute best boots you can afford. and expect to pay more than $100 for new boots.

If you do choose to buy a duty boot for field use,, you will be replacing them in a year.. they just can't take it.

Magnums are an excellent boot. The 2 main problems with them is they get wet easily (although there's a Goretex version) and they don't provide a ton of ankle support. But they're damned comfy, like wearing a hightop sneaker. Great boots, I've worn them for years. Your feet will thank you.
