MAGNUM IS BORN
The first Magnum boot was born in 1982 through a direct demand from the FBI training center, for lightweight, athletic and comfortable tactical boots.
INVESTMENT IS MADE INTO MAGNUM R&D
As demand grew for this type of boot, we invested time in researching what the end user really wanted from Magnum boots. The end users told us that there was a need for several variations of the popular style in a mid cut, including the boot being available in full leather, waterproof and steel toe versions.
FIRST COMPLETE GLOBAL MAGNUM FOOTWEAR COLLECTION IS LAUNCHED
Once Magnum was well established across the USA, the demand from around the world increased, which meant that the collection needed to appeal to different climates, tastes and approaches to uniform requirements. The first global Magnum footwear collection was created.
MAGNUM TACTICAL ADVISORY COUNCIL IS ESTABLISHED
We set up our own dedicated Magnum Tactical Advisory Committee (MTAC), referring back to the end-user for valuable feedback and guidance. MTAC is comprised of members from various emergency services and Military forces who work alongside the Magnum Development Team, testing and advising on all new product development. This helps to ensure all Magnum footwear is truly ‘Fit for Purpose’ and continues to exceed end-user requirements.
MAGNUM OFFICIALLY GOES ALONE
Magnum officially separates from parent company Hi-Tec Sports. As the business grew, it became apparent that Magnum was ready to stand alone as a brand backed by a dedicated design, development, sales and marketing team.
