I've had my Magnums for over a year now as a work boot and hiking/GP footwear, and in that time I've put them through anything and everything I can think of in terms of regular use and abuse (I get a new pair issued each year :P) and I have to say that the Stealths kind of suck. They decided to put fabric (not leather) in some of the most hard-wearing spots (no strong heel, poor tongue) and more importantly thought it would be a good idea to have a fabric to fabric stitch joint at the heel where the foot bends (instant split within 3 months) and on the tongue (6 month split). The good news is that they are comfy as f*ck, didn't take long to break in, and leather and rubber are decent quality....they just need to rethink their designs.
