Review: Magnum Work Pro Ultra CT WPi

Magnum Work Pro Ultra CT WPi

I recently set out to test Magnum’s Work Pro Ultra CT WPi boots. While not being able to really tear into these boots by going on long hunts, I have been able to put many miles in them and can say for sure they live up to Magnum’s high quality of products.

Here is a rundown of the product features:

  • Tumbled leather upper
  • Waterproof
  • ion-mask for a dry, cleaner, more lightweight boot
  • Moisure-wicking synthetic lining
  • ASTM-approved composite safety toe
  • Non-metallic composite support shank
  • M-PACT contoured sockliner with memory foam
  • Compression-molded EVA midsole for cushioning
  • High-traction carbon rubber outsole
  • Electrical-hazard resistant

While testing the Electrical-hazard resistant feature of the boot would have been fun, I thought it best to just leave that to the professionals. I did however test the safety toe. I dropped a 45-pound weight directly onto the toe (while wearing them) and am proud to say that I still have all seven of my toes.

To help break it down, here is a quick pros and cons list.

PROS

  • The boots were true to size.
  • They are easy to get on and stay on as slip-on boots.
  • They are pretty easy to take off after a long walk.
  • The waterproofing kept my feet nice and dry.
  • I had no problem with traction on wet muddy hills.
  • Nice and lightweight.
  • No “break-in” time—felt great right out of the box.

CONS

  • The width of the shoe seems a bit too wide. The medium width feels more like a wide. This did lead to a bit more play in the ankle area than I would like, so I kept the activities more on the mundane than rigorous side.

So after all the tests, I decided to grade these boots with a 90/100 with the only real downfall being the width.

One Comment on “Review: Magnum Work Pro Ultra CT WPi

  1. Great review!

    Magnum has forced their way into our closets. I currently own the Elite Force 8.0 and Precision Ultra Lite WPi CT’s and cannot say enough good things about them.

    Glad to hear Magnum is impressing others just as much as they impress us at FHC Outdoors.
