The Magnum Halifax was built to be just as tough as the hard working people living in the city it is named after and when it comes to durability, this work boot is definitely not lacking. Leather is the material of choice when constructing a work boot so why would Magnum use anything else? The leather uppers are made to withstand the hard work you do and can handle taking a the abuse that comes with work. Magnum also thought about the areas of the boot that take the brunt of that abuse, the toe and heel, which is why they added toe and heel guards. These guards are made out of TPU or thermoplastic polyurethane which is known for is abrasion resistance and strength, so scuffed toes will be a thing of the past. Another not so important durability feature, but one that anyone who has snapped a pair of laces can appreciate is that you get a second pair of laces with your work boots. So if you happen to tug a little too hard and rip your lace in half, you will have an extra pair on hand without having to make a special trip to the store.
So what makes these work boots different than any other boot out there? Many boots on the market come with one performance feature like a composite toe, waterproofing system, or a great outsole, the Magnum Halifax has all of those. A waterproof membrane works to keep water out of the boot, but remains breathable so moisture from foot sweat can escape. The lining is made from moisture wicking material so it draws moisture away from your foot and works hand in hand with the breathable membrane. A moisture wicking lining can really be viewed as a comfort feature as well because wet sweaty feet can possibly be one of the worst things to have. Another great feature of this brown work boot is the fully gusseted tongue which helps keep debris like gravel or even rain water out of your boot. One of the more obvious performance features is the composite toe cap. Composite toes offer the same exact protection as a steel toe cap, but in a lightweight package. Plus, it's non metallic, along with the other hardware, so if you go through metal detectors often at work you will no longer have to take off your boots. Protective ankle impact zones were added to the boots which is a pretty unique feature. These zones offer more protection and support to your ankle when working in environment with rubble or loose objects and if you're on the clumsy side this may be a feature for you. A flexible puncture resistant plate was added on the bottom of the boot providing protection against nails and other hazards you may encounter. The reflective heel and ankle make working at night a little less stressful knowing you can be seen. All of these performance features make a really reliable work boot, but there is still one more feature left, the Vibram outsole. Vibram outsoles are some of the best outsoles available on the market and are known for their durability and performance. This rubber outsole is slip and oil resistant and was made with toe traction and heel brake zones. The outsole is going to help make sure you stay on your feet no matter what type of surface you are standing on.
Yes, there are comfortable work boots out there and the Magnum Halifax is one of them. Many of the performance features listed above could also be considered features of comfort, but the true comfort features like the EVA insole is what puts this work boot over the top. EVA insole will give you that cushion your feet are looking for during a long day. Couple that with the impact absorbing compression molded midsole and your feet will be thanking you at the end of your work day. The midsole is going to help minimize the impact your feet take when walking or running and when your on your feet all day that impact can be a lot.
