SHOT Show 2016: Premier of MAGNUM Boots

MAGNUM (booth 11164) is launching two new uniform styles for 2016 featuring two great new partnerships, innovative technologies and sleek designs. As the original innovators of lightweight uniform and safety footwear, MAGNUM has always had a pioneering spirit and this is evident in their latest offering with the STRIKE FORCE and Magnum OPUS. In Europe they will be available from Autumn 2016.

STRIKE FORCE: Created using pioneering technologies, the Strike Force is a force to be reckoned with. This boot is the first to use Armourgel, a revolutionary new energy absorbing material in footwear. The material stiffens on impact to provide protection but flexes when protection is not required providing safety and comfort. The Strike Force will also feature a high-performance multi-surface, traction delivering, Michelin rubber outsole inspired by the Michelin Power Rain tire and Michelin Pilot Alpin tire for stability in the toughest conditions.

  • Durable leather upper with hardwearing mesh panels
  • Scanner safe, non-metallic composite hardware
  • Armourgel ultimate ankle impact protection
  • Fast wicking lining for moisture management & comfort
  • PU foam insole for maximum comfort & shock absorption
  • Compression moulded RECOIL midsole absorbs impact and provides all-day support and comport
  • Composite shank offers lightweight, airport safe underfoot comfort
  • High-Traction, slip and oil resistant MICHELIN outsole for maximum grip
