Magnum Shoes are footwear specifically designed for protecting the feet during outdoor walking activities such as hiking, trekking, climbing, Running & Jogging. These are designed to carry heavier loads on multiday trips deep into the backcountry. Durable and supportive, with stiffer midsoles than lighter footwear, they are suitable for on- or off-trail travel.
Hi-Tec Sports was founded in 1974 in the appropriately named village of Shoeburyness, in Essex, England. Hi-Tec’s original success grew from the breakthrough design and development of Hi-Tec’s first ever shoe, the Hi-Tec Squash, specifically designed for the then fast-growing game of squash. An industry benchmark then and now, few Magnum Shoes in athletic footwear history have recorded unit sales of over 18 million pairs worldwide to date. The Hi-Tec Squash remains Britain’s all-time best-selling sports shoe model to this day.
As demand grew for this type of boot, we invested a lot of time in researching what the end-user 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.
