    +1 on the Magnums. They were the only full waterproof ones when I was looking. Add bamboo socks and they're one comfy boot. I do a bit of bowhunting so I was looking for a work /hiking style boot as I cover a bit of ground in all terrains. So far I'm really impressed. Don't know how true but was told that the US army use these.

    Might be worth trying the magnums. They're the same price I was paying for the ascents from athletes foot. I'm not impressed with the build quality of the last pair I bought which started to fall apart after less than 6 months of wear.

    I've used Oliver's in the workshop as a mechanic and while I was working for a mates plumbing business. Good support all round and held up to chemicals and fuels. One downside is the break in period but after that they're great. The only thing I've replaced on them is the laces.

    One thing that should be considered though which my physio mentioned is lace ups are a better choice then slip on boots. You may not notice it but in a slip on boot when you walk your foot tends to try and grab the boot and scrunch up with your toes as they stretch more from moving around inside compared to a lace up boot.

    I've also had a pair of Mongrels which I found really comfortable and were lighter then the Olivers.

    Only problem with Oliver's is they have a very narrow footbed. Which isn't a problem for most except those with a broad foot like myself
    I dont break things ...I just use them beyond their operational limitations

    My new Mongrel Zip Siders arrived today as the old ones are almost due for the pension.

    I think they are almost 3 yrs old & never seen any oil except for accidental sump oil spills or lanox overspray.

    I like them as they are very light & comfortable from day 1.
