“Magnum opus, noun, a work of art, music, or literature that is regarded as the most important or best work that an artist, composer, or writer has produced.”
Whether you’re law enforcement, military or a regular civilian, you need your boots to give you the most underfoot support possible. Magnum strives to constantly deliver pioneering, fit for purpose footwear that meets and exceeds their customers’ needs. The Magnum OPUS is one of their newest developments, meant to perfectly balance combat and athletic characteristics.
The Magnum Opus Assault Tactical 5 Boot is an ankleheight tactical boot, designed from the ground up by Magnum to give excellent comfort and protection with industry leading innovations in design and function. The upper features Kurim protective panels, which are constructed by thermo pressing PU with a substrate material. This creates a super lightweight, breathable net mesh, offering super high abrasion resistance with limited water retention and unrivalled support.
The Recoil midsole is made from Magnum’s exclusive Recoil EVA, which is softer to the touch and underfoot compared to standard EVAs. It offers 69% more rebound than standard EVAs and allows you to always get the most shock protection, even when running. Recoil offers the best in comfort and durability, creating a truly trainer-like feel, with tactical boot performance. The outsole unit is made from rubber carbon, which offers great grip and durability. The tread of the sole is multifaceted, giving better toe-off and improved natural motion.
In use, the Kurim on the boot upper gives you higher abrasion resistance and protection. This moulded PU material increases the durability of the upper, giving you heightened freedom of movement without having to worry about your boots’ integrity. The lightweight net mesh on the OPUS’ surface helps with breathability and the fast wicking mesh inner lining will help to keep your feet dry. The closed hook lacing system ensures a more secure grip, whilst flexible foot forming construction allows for a comfortable fit and support for your foot and ankles.
The OPUS’ athletic design is reflected in its low weight (431g in UK Size 9/US 10/Euro 43), making it the ideal boot that won’t weigh you down during strenuous physical exercise. The durable carbon rubber outsole with multi-directional lugs provides you with enhanced grip and traction while you run, break and climb on dry or slippery wet terrain. And above everything else, the two characteristics that make this boot truly stand out: Comfort and Support. In between the OrthoLite Impressions insole offering superior cushioning, the Recoil midsole that delivers all-day support and comfort and the overall construction, this is a bit of a corker! Trust me when I say your feet will thank you, and with a bunch of (hopefully!) hot weather training sessions on the horizon, I’m really looking forward to putting the OPUS boots quite literally through their paces!
