Magnum Boots evolved out of Hi-Tec Sports, the footwear company founded in 1974 by Frank van Wezel. It was Frank’s love for sport that led him to build an innovative, lightweight, and instantly comfortable sports shoe.
The first Magnum boot was born in 1982 through a request from the FBI training centre for a strong and lightweight, athletically built, black tactical boot. Once the FBI spread the word, the demand came to supply this product nationwide, as more and more law enforcement and security personnel wanted the comfort and superlight performance our product provided.
With a solid reputation built across the USA, demand from around the world increased. As a result, the Magnum product range expanded to meet the wide range of high-performance needs of professionals working in high pressure environments globally.
Today, the Magnum brand is sold in almost 100 countries around the world. It is the first choice for law enforcement, fire, security, ambulance, hospitality-service, health-service, construction, and industrial professionals.
