Hi-Tec Magnum is born through a demand from the FBI training centre at Quantico, Virginia, USA, for lightweight, athletically built black tactical boots. Until this point the officers were wearing the Hi-Tec Sierra Lite Hiking boot but the request came for an all black, high top version with a shineable toe, giving birth to the original tactical boot constructed using sports shoe materials.
Sold in 80 countries around the world. The first choice for Law Enforcement, Ambulance, Fire and Security Professionals. Lightweight Athletic comfort, yet built like a battleship!
In 2009 Magnum joined forces with P2i, pioneering the introduction of their ground-breaking ion-maskTM technology to the tactical footwear industry. ion-maskTM is a patented plasma-based technology, originally developed for the UK military, to repel chemicals and protect soldiers from chemical attack. It permanently alters the surface of a product at a molecular level to repel water and other liquids even blood pathogens– which are forced to bead up like mercury and simply run-off to protect the wearer.
n 2012, Magnum were proud winners of the prestigious SATRA PPE Innovation Award for ‘Best Innovation in Safety Footwear’ at the Professional Clothing Awards.
