Viking Footwear – Rubber boots for adults and children
The Vikings were rough people. Bold and tough. Without fear and never shying away from risks. This may be the reason why Viking Footwear founder Peter Mathias Røwde gave his first rubber products this brand name in 1920. Like the Vikings themselves, "real Viking products" should defy wind and weather and offer perfect footwear for working in the not always "mild-mannered" Norwegian climate and landscape.
Shoes with tradition
Viking Footwear has focused on making perfect Wellingtons boot since 1920. Inspired by fierce resistance to the Nordic climate and landscape and geared to the needs of farmers and other people who had to work hard to earn their living outdoors, Viking Rubber boots received attention at an early stage. They not only became popular with farmers, forestry workers, hunters or fishermen quickly. Adventurers and explorers also appreciated these boots. Their non-slip sole were not only convincing in the Norwegian forests' muddy terrain, but also on the rocks of the fjords. They are extremely comfortable and provide a sense of safety even when raining or snowing. The Viking boots still differ from other Wellington boots due to these good qualities even today.
Norwegian shoes in a modern product range
Even if the requirements for the optic of innovative Wellington boots have changed a bit, Viking Footwear remains true to the company founder's first logo. It still embellishes many of the brand's Wellington boots, trainers and boots for outdoor activities. The company that produces most sustainable products has of course long been producing shoes for women and children. The colourful, Scandinavian shoes are especially popular with kids. For Viking Footwear, Rubber boots and other children's shoes today are among the most important products of the company. The product range has been expanded with numerous comfortable sandals and modern trainers for children. A modern Scandinavian appearance offers the best materials, such as Gore-Tex, suede and natural rubber. Viking Footwear's main concern is healthy feet for kids and to wear shoes, which your children can use everywhere. The sandals have a typical open design, often with three well-fitting Velcro straps for maximum fit. Viking trainers for children are waterproof thanks to their protective Gore-Tex membrane; they are shoes that your kids can wear on all of their adventures, even during muddy weather, and they look really great in doing so.
Many decades after the company was founded, the product range grew steadily and is still geared towards people's needs today. This keeps the brand loyal to the original ideas of its founder. All shoes are designed with the idea of protecting the feet of their owner when outdoors and of giving them good support. Today, the company sees itself as down-to-earth and this is to be kept that way.
