Tag Archives: Magnum strider shoe
Following on from the success of our Magnum strider shoe, we have now launched our brand new Magnum Strider boot. We have had a fantastic review sent in by Peter, a Response Police Constable in the UK highlighting the benefits of our brand new boot:
I was allocated a pair of Magnum Strider boots by Keltic Clothing in order that a field test review could be conducted, in all sorts of conditions to establish the suitability of the boot for civil enforcement and parking officers who are on their feet all day. I am currently a serving police officer in the UK and over the past week, the boots were put through their paces, throughout a number of scenarios and weather conditions!
When I first tried on the boot, I was pleasantly surprised, it actually felt more like slippers. I had a small walk around in them on hard flooring and you couldn’t really hear the sole of the boot making contact with the surface, in direct comparison to the loud, clunky noise of some types.
I wore the boots for work and did not experience any problems whatsoever from a comfort viewpoint. I take my choice of footwear very seriously and found them extremely responsive when driving vehicles, the sole does not have any mouldings of the sole design sticking out, getting caught in the pedals or anything like that.
The first day I had chance to wear the boots operationally was quite warm and I didn’t notice any increase in temperature of my feet. In relation to their comfort while walking, it isn’t something that becomes an issue. I actually forgot that I was wearing them until someone asked me if I was wearing new boots! A number of personnel remarked on their professional look.
The boot is a mid height boot, i.e. it covers just above the ankle bone. It has two normal eyelets for laces at the bottom of the boot, as you get near the tongue I would describe them as two hooks, which allows for the laces to be locked in place, keeping the tongue secure. Yet again, something so small, but you don’t have to worry about your laces coming undone at any vital moment.
It has what I would call a casing, reinforcing the heel of the Magnum shoes, which means more security for the wearer. This small piece of design makes all the difference and helps to prevent ankle pain / soreness. At no point did I feel that the movement of my foot was restricted within the boot. It makes the foot feel secure, however still allows for a little movement. I found that the insoles are extremely comfortable and have an excellent cooling factor, again pointing back to the fact that my feet remained cool the first day I wore the boots, despite the warm weather.
After my test of these boots, I am of the opinion that these boots are suitable for ANYONE. I know that the boots have a targeted audience of Civil Enforcement Officers Security Officers and other similar positions however I would encourage anyone who is on their feet for long periods each day, enjoys walking or gentle hiking to invest in a pair of these boots. You can be safe in the knowledge that they are extremely comfortable, completely waterproof and very stylish.
To further our success of our brand new Magnum strider shoe, we thought what better than trying it out in a good old British muddy festival. This year was no exception and it wasn’t long before the rain began and the mud slides escalated.
Our willing testers of the Magnum shoes were our valued customer Mendip District Council. We currently supply their parking department for their full uniforms and they were thrilled with the durability and comfort of the Magnum Strider. So much so that the next day they washed the mud off them and went for a morning run!
Since their success, they are now looking to kit out their full staff in the Magnum Strider and spread the word. If you would like to put our Strider to the test, please contact us – we’d love to hear your feedback!
