1974Frank Van Wezel （法兰克）创立Hi-Tec Sports
Hi-Tec Sports 于1974年在英国"艾塞克斯"小镇创立，法兰克在当时设计出第一双突破性设计概念的壁球鞋，获得运动爱好者的爱戴，深得同行业的关注。到目前为止，该产品合共销售1千8百万双的历史记录，目前是英国最畅销的壁球鞋。
1982 Hi-Tec Magnum 诞生
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.
Once the FBI spread the word, the demand came to supply this product nationwide, as more law enforcement and security personnel wanted the comfort and super light performance of this groundbreaking product.
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.
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. A global Magnum footwear collection was created.
In 1988 Magnum set up its own dedicated Magnum Advisory Committee (MAC), referring back to the end-user for valuable feedback and guidance. MAC comprised of members of the various emergency services and Military forces working alongside the Magnum Development Team testing and advising on all new product development in their day-to-day work environment. This helps to ensure all Magnum footwear is truly ‘Fit for Purpose’ and continues to exceed end-user requirements.
In 2001 Magnum officially separated from Hi-Tec to become a stand alone brand. As the Magnum business grew, it became apparent that Magnum could stand on its own two feet as a brand, backed up by dedicated design, development, sales and marketing teams. Magnum had come of age.
For the highly trained officer demanding the very best in materials, features, materials, comfort and performance. The Elite Force series is built to the highest technical and design standards. Gaining high praises from law enforcement personnel and gear reviewers alike, the Elite Series can easily be touted as the most progressive line of tactical footwear in the industry.
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 groundbreaking 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.
