New All-Over Camo Boots

Going covert from head to toe will be much easier now with all-over camouflage military boots on the market.

This week Danner and Magnum revealed a new line of combat footwear that brings concealment all the way down to the sole. No joke. Both brands feature a completely camouflaged boot sole. And there’s nothing is sweeter than that.

Bryan at ITS Tactical agrees. He called Danner’s camouflage boot sole “out-of-the-box thinking at its finest.” And it truly is. It’s almost like a work of art. He also mentions that sometimes non-camo boots can be a dead giveaway on the field. Now there’s finally a solution.

Along with added concealment, Bryan gave the boots two thumbs up for general comfort and excellent breathability. He mentioned that the beveled lugs work efficiently to prevent mud and other debris build up. He posted some beautiful shots of the new boots on Flickr.

In addition to Danner’s latest, Magnum unveiled its own version of the all-over camo combat boot on Friday. To be officially launched at next week’s SHOT Show, the All MultiCam boots took more than a year to develop with aid of American, British and Southern Hemisphere Special Forces personnel, Magnum said.

Coming to retail stores this summer, the lightweight boots combine Crye Precision MultiCam patterns and Magnum’s ion-mask technology on every aspect of the boot including the outsoles, midsoles and lace eyelets. The two styles of boots include the Sidewinder HPi and the Spider 8.1 HPi.

On a side note, Converse 8-inch Stealth are now available in MultiCam on MilitaryBoots.com for $88.99. Sure, there isn’t camo on the soles, they’re still pretty rad.

  1. When you say imported you mean Communist Chinese don’t you? I have found Communist Chinese hunting boots to be garbage that is taken back to the store for a refund. How ironic it is this chicom stuff is accepted as uniforms (like berets for example) when any day now America will be kicking the PRC’s asses (pun intended) out of Taiwan, Phillipines, Africa or whereever else they feel they can just bully their way (America included).

  2. I am looking to buy the camo boots but this site has no way of me purchasing them can u send me a website for me to purchase them in.

  3. Hi Jeff,

    Magnum said to contact their International office and they will be able to provide them with more information. Their phone number is (44)1702 541741. Thanks!

  4. Hi guys, I am looking for a pair of Magnum spider 8.1 HPI – multicam, where can I get these in South Africa ?

  7. I own a pair of the Magnum Spider 8.1 Urban boots, admittedly not in the camo style but non-there-less this can prove just a viable review either way.

    I work within the emergency services sector and regard my footwear a crucial part of my kit, if not THE most important piece.

    The following is my review of them for anyone wondering what they are like to wear.

    Unlike some reviews that you may read for Magnum boots, I’m not affiliated in any way with Magnum other than being in a position to give MY honest opinion of a product. If they lack or fall foul of any inferior craftsmanship, I’ll let you know. I wouldn’t want to spend my hard-earned money on a name and hope you read this review with confidence.

    If you thought that a high leg boot of this calibre would be quite heavy, think again. The fact that they are extremely light in no way impedes their durability. They even have a clever little pocket in the Magnum logo on the tongue to store your laced ‘ends’.

    I’ve had these boots for a couple of months now and so far have been able to put them through a bit of stick and really test them out.

    From the moment you take them out of the box and put them on, you know you’ve made a worthwhile decision. They needed no breaking in and to be honest, I haven’t had them off of my feet since I got them at the back end of 2010. I wear them for work, outside of work as a casual boot and have been wearing them over the winter in the snow. Wether they look as good with shorts in summer is another question.

    As a front line emergency services operative in the UK, looking after my feet is as important as looking after my back, and having the correct footwear on my feet for a 12 hour shift, day after day is imperative. I need a boot that not only supports my ankle and can keep my feet warm and dry during the unpredictable weather that the UK can throw at us, but also supple enough to allow me to spend a large portion of that day driving, kneeling and squatting down in them.

    So far I’ve been able to pit the Spider 8.1 Urban boots through a number of conditions;

    Snow & ice – Warm and dry with more than adequate grip on treacherous terrain. The last thing I need in slippery conditions, especially when dealing with a patient, is a boot that will allow my foot to slip. The Spiders were almost like having a crampon under foot.

    Rain and water – I can thankfully say I’ve not had call (so far) to totally submerge my foot in water, but I have had to trench through some pretty wet terrain in the past couple of months. No complaints so far. Again, fantastic grip in the wet and kept my feet nice and dry.

    Mud – Another favourite of my line of work is having to access areas that people don’t normally tend to venture. Muddy fields and ditches at the side of roads, more often than not after a heavy downpour. Because of the mesh construction that makes up the majority of the Spider boot, you might think that cleaning mud would be like cleaning vomit from a deep pile carpet. Not so. I ran mine under an outside tap and gave them a brush down with a stiff bristle brush and they were as good as new.

    I know many Magnum lovers like the fact that the finish of their boots allows the matt effect. I on the other hand prefer to give my boots a good old fashioned polish. Add the old Parade Gloss Prestige and some elbow grease and they look better every time.

    The only thing I would add to the negative about the Spider 8.1 Urban boots is that I am no longer able to wear them for work due to their lack of ‘Composite Toe Protection’. I would like to see this added to the new model of Spiders. They have however still become my first boot of choice outside of work.

    My personal opinion for anyone liking the look of these boots is that you will definitely NOT be disappointed. They are worth every penny and hold enough style that you can throw them on with a pair of jeans and tromp down the pub on a saturday with the lads.
