Last Sunday, Keltic Clothing Director David Barry ran the 13mile Bupa great Birmingham run, a fantastic charity event, and with the help of the Keltic staff, raised £500 for BRAKE, the road safety charity.
Next week, Keltic launches the magnum strider boot, which is manufactured by magnum footwear, who is owned by hi tec, and uses trainer technology for the first time in a uniform boot.
Many parking, security and warden staff walk up to 13 miles- the equivalent of a half marathon- every shift- and so to show just how comfortable these new magnum boots are, David ran the Birmingham half marathon in them!
The proof of how comfortable, lightweight and breathable the magnum strider boot is is that David finished the run in exactly the same time as last year, when he was wearing his £130 Nike Air Max running trainers!
Following on from the success of the Magnum Strider shoe, Keltic Clothing is launching the Magnum Strider boot, priced at £66.95, next week. It has all the features that have made the shoe such a phenomenal success, but includes additional ankle support, and because it covers the ankle, it gives extra water resistance too.
David comments “the strider boot felt great to run in- it’s so lightweight and breathable I could hardly tell I was wearing them.” This bodes well for the thousands of parking, warden and security staff who will be issued with the magnum boot as part of their uniform. At Keltic we certainly like to put our money where our mouth is!
We all want to say well done to David for his great efforts and look forward to hearing what his next charity effort will be!
Keltic now offer the biggest range of magnum footwear in the UK. Magnum are widely acknowledged to be the best quality boots on the market. Their boots are used by a number of armed forces, and are ideal for all tough work requirements.
Our range of Magnum Boots includes options that aren’t available anywhere else such as the magnum strider, a lightweight, water resistant, highly breathable, highly durable and extremely comfortable shoe that we designed in conjunction with Magnum.
Keltic are one of the UK’s leading uniform suppliers, specialising in supplying councils, NHS and universities, and our range of Hi tec magnum boots and shoe are available for next day delivery on receipt of an official purchase order from any public sector organisation.
As experts in this field we are continuing to develop new products at an impressive rate, and our expertise is at your service in relation to footwear and all other uniform items.
On the final day of Parkex, we’ve built on the success of our first two days, making the most of having Neal from Magnum on hand to demonstrate our exclusive new magnum shoe, an adaptation of the classic magnum boot, ideal for staff who do a lot of walking. Armed with a water tank and a spray gun full of “nasties” we’ve been demonstrating its water resistant properties, chucking all sorts of liquids at it – and because of the Strider’s water-repellent ion mask coating, they were just running off – no match for the mighty Strider!
We’ve also had test data available to show how much more durable the Strider is than its nearest (and more expensive) competitor. The Strider came about by our exclusive partnership with Magnum, a leading brand of security and safety footwear. Magnum boots are renowned for being high quality footwear among wearers, but there was a gap in the market for a highly durable walking shoe alternative. Parking staff who can pound the pavements for up to 12 miles a day, and end up with very sore feet if they’re wearing the wrong footwear. We’ve filled this gap by taking a walking shoe which Magnum make for postmen, and giving it a smarter more “uniform” appearance.
The response we’ve had on day three says it all – we’ve taken a record number of orders for Magnum footwear, and are in danger of selling out! We think it’s the unrivalled combination of durability, water resistance, breathability and comfort that have made the Strider such a hit. That and Neal’s winning way with the water tank! Thanks for everyone who stopped by our stand – it’s been a blast!
