Hey,

Just wondering where the best and cheapest place to buy Magnum (or a simular type) boot's?

Any help is much appreciated!

Magnums are Shite, get them issued at work and they fall to bits in 2/3 months of walking around a shopping centre. You would have to be insane to wear them in the field.

IMHO don't bother, you get what you pay for.. Buy a decent pair.

Everyone has their personal favourite, the one bit of advice you should heed is, buy boots from somewhere who measures your feet and are trained in boot fitting..

see the link above :)

I went on a track day with an Aston Martin V12. It broke down about 2 minutes in.

Nobody should buy Aston Martins, they all break down in 2 minutes on a race track, never mind serious use on British Roads.

What am I trying to say? Plenty of people don't ruin Magnums after 2-3 months. They're not all shite. You just heard somebody on the forum say they were shite, so you joined in, didn't you!

Given, they're no Lowas or Altbergs. But look after them, and they do last a while if used in the purpose they're designed for.

If your looking for magnum-esque boots, but want somthing where the "leather" dosent peel of after you walk through a puddle (god, this sounds like a sales pitch, it isnt) you should try (and no i CBA to provide a link, use your google) highlander delta boots.
They were what i was using, and very succesfully too, untill some scrote nicked ONE ofr them. You know, itd piss me off less if he'd nicked both, they were good boots. :x

Lowa are a good boot brand.
Boeing are a good brand of planes too.

Doesn't mean I know anything about them or can make a hearty recommendation to the aviation community.

Like's been said, there's a thread on boots stickied to this forum so big that it challenges some editions of the bible.

(waiting out for thread lock)
