Review: Magnum Stealth Force 8.0 (Desert Tan)

Many people have asked me about what type of boots I use on the field. While there is more than a few different options out there I picked a pair of Magnum Stealth 8.0 boots in desert tan. At the time I was looking for a boot that was sub $100 that I could skirmish with a camo'd and civilian loadout.  Despite the boots 2 lbs weight actual feel is substantially light on an operators feet.

  • Cambrelle moisture lining
  • Compression molded misdole
  • Composite Shank
  • "M-pact" countoured sock liner with memory foam
  • "X-Traction" zone outsole
  • "Flex-Zone" for traction control
  • Anti-fraying G stitching 
Weight: 2 lbs

MSRP: $69.99

Purchased from: 


Every shoe or boot that I have worn in the past during its their break-in period has a soft cushiony feel to them. Soon after awhile all shoes and boots loose this luster. I've had these boots for a little over a month and they still have that same feeling. My feet are comfortable in all types of environments and stress that I have manage to encounter. During its 1st week of use I could maneuver and move quickly and easily with a considerable amount of comfort. The threading and stichting used on the boot has not frayed so far and appears to be all intact. The longest I have used these shoes is straight 14hrs a whole day of recreational wear put these boot through its paces. Its mesh/suede exterior combined with the Cambrelle lining makes the boot breathable. At the end of day my feet were cool and dry despite being stomped around in all day.

For a a boot that has similar performance in the price range there is no other boot than can compare. While there is quality performance tactical boots out there this one brings quality with performance in a price that wont break the wallet.
