The Hi-Tec Sports Company formed in the UK in 1974 introduced Magnum Boots some eight years later. The Magnum Boot was designed for the FBI training centre that needed a high top, black tactical boot that was lightweight, in essence, they made a tactical boot using sport shoe materials. This revolutionary product was then improved and adapted to provide all leather, all weather, steel toe versions and following success in the US, Magnum footwear has been embraced by law enforcement, military and emergency service staff throughout the world.

Magnum is the only Uniform footwear brand to offer the ion-mask™ technology. Originally developed by the British Army to ensure soldiers' clothing remained impermeable to chemical warfare agents, Magnum applied this technology inside a plasma chamber and invisible to wearers.

The protective layer of ion-mask™ is over one thousand times thinner than a human hair. The technology is molecularly bonded and impregnated through every single fibre in the material. This treatment makes it extremely durable without affecting the look or feel of the product. Furthermore, ion-mask™ lasts as long as the material itself and is not compromised by everyday wear.

WorkwearHub stocks Magnum footwear and can recommend it for it's tough, highly technical characteristics with the comfort of sports shoes for everyday wear.
