Magnum have recently launched a new range of best-selling army boots in MOD brown aimed at the UK cadet forces market. Three favourite Magnum styles, including the Classic, Panther 8.0 and Viper Pro 8.0 Leather Waterproof, have been launched in the official Ministry of Defence brown colourway, making them perfect for cadets and military personnel.

Magnum are pleased to team up with Elite Stockist Cadet Direct to provide the Magnum Classic military boot in the new military brown colourway to the Lancashire Army Cadet Force (LACF) for the 99th Nijmegen Four Day March on 21-24 July 2015.

Cadet Direct are the leading supplier of footwear and uniforms to the UK cadet forces and offer a vast range of clothing and equipment options. Magnum, in association with Cadet Direct, have supplied 15 pairs of the Magnum Classic in MOD brown, one of the most popular military styles produced by Magnum. The Magnum Classic is extremely comfortable, slip and oil resistant and has a durable full grain leather upper.


James Munday, Managing Director at Cadet Direct says:

‘We were approached by the commanding officer of the Lancashire ACF Nijmegen Team who was looking to supply his cadets with a uniform boot that would stand a series of intensive training weekends plus the 4 day 100 mile Nijmegen marches event itself. I contacted Magnum immediately because having completed the event three times myself I felt the Magnum Classic boot would be perfect for the job’.


Lancashire Army Cadet Force (Lancs ACF) have already been training in their Magnum Classic boots, walking 50 miles over two days. The team of 15 including a Second Lieutenant, a Sergeant Major Instructor, and 1 Sergeant, 6 Corporal’s, 3 Lance Corporal’s and 3 Cadets are delighted with the boots and will be completing another training session on the 15-17 May.

Lancs ACF Nijmegen Team member, Forrest McDonald, says regarding the Magnum Classic boots:

“For uniformity our team leader sought for us to all have the same boots and thanks to Cadet Direct we have … After 50 miles of walking on [a] hard surface my feet were in better condition than on the practice walk, of similar distance, in my [other] patrol boots. I am well and truly blown away with the comfort of these boots, and of course it looks great when the team is well uniformed.”

The 99th Nijmegen Four Day March is the world’s largest walking event, taking place in Holland and attracting over 42,000 people from all over the world. Participants can choose how far they walk each day and can walk a maximum of 200km over the 4 day march. More information can be found at
