Great Gripping Vipers!!My husband bought these boots about 6 months ago. He loves them. Although he isn't in the police field, he uses them to ride his motorcycle! They grip well and are very sturdy! This is his 2nd pair. He doesn't want any other type of boot to ride his Yamaha!

FANTASTIC BOOT I RECOMMEND TO ALL MY FRIENDSA friend got me wearing magnum Viper II 8” Side Zip Wide a few years ago, love them. The only thing I will say on the down size a year or so they had a slight design change on the side zip. The side zip did as it show in the photos, was maybe a little longer and went more at a curve or an angle toward the toe area. It now goes straight down. I have a wide foot and it is hard to get on and off with the new design. I wear my Magnum Vipers on a daily basis, I am active in motorcycles, hunting fishing and I am overweight; all of those are hard on boots. I don't know how many pairs I have had or how many years I have been wearing them, but I do know I have only had to return one pair in the year of warranty and that along says something about your great product.

DISAPPOINTED!!!!!I bought mine too about 6 months ago and have only bought HI Tec magnum boots since the late 1980's . This pair is comfortable but the side zip strap started to come apart right after I started using them. See pic.

An Anomaly - Sadly DisappointedI have been wearing Magnum or Hi-Tec boots ever since they were released all those years ago and we could wear them with our uniform. I often brag about the boots, comfort, style, and durability. This is the first time the "leather" cracked on the toe of the boot and started to peel away. This is happening on a natural crease on the toe box. These boots were used in the office as I have another pair Magnum boots for field duty that have seen better days but have held up a lot more than these did. As for the comfort and style, both are top notch. Whenever I have put a pair of Magnums on they feel like they are already broken in and the Viper felt great. I am now going back and forth with the Viper and Stealth Force (had to put a shine on them and they took it well). I know this is an anomaly, definitely not the norm for Magnum and with this in mind, I would still recommend the Viper boot. The pair I have may have snuck under the wire.
