Victor Footwear makes Mongrel Boots in Australia. Indeed this locally owned and run, family company has been making boots for Australian workers since 1930. Unlike some brands that promote Australian ownership and an Australian image but fully import their boots – Mongrel Boots are made in Sydney using state of the art equipment with some parts and materials imported to ensure the highest quality and competitive costs. Local manufacturing and development allows us to maintain excellent stock levels and ensure world-class technology and innovation for both safety and comfort. While the vast majority of our products are made in Australia, should any styles or components require manufacture overseas in order to be competitive – they are made using the safety and quality codes followed in Australia, under the supervision of Victor Footwear manufacturing executives.
The Brand Promise
The Mongrel Boots brand was first launched in 2000. It was seen on just one style and only promoted on the boot box label. The idea came from a desire by Victor to associate its boot making skills with its Australian heritage. Indeed, Mongrel work boots are Aussie born and bred.
The name soon developed into a complete range, and Victor has added leadership to the Mongrels promise.
An example of Mongrel leadership was as the originators of the zip side style for work boots. Introduced in 2006 with just one style – our “Zip- Siders” are now category leaders in Australia and included in virtually all of our Mongrel ranges.
This catalogue introduces a new and improved sole design and scuff cap range as part of our dedication to continuous improvement.
The extensive Mongrel Boots range means there is a boot to suit your needs. We are proud to present the 2015/2016 range of Mongrel Boots.
