About Viking

Our history dates back to 1920 when our founder, Peter Mathias Røwde founded a rubber factory in Askim. The brand name was Viking and the factory started to produce galoshes to prevent shoes from getting muddy and wet. A few years later the production was expanded and led to the introduction of our now famous rubber boots.

Since then, Viking has continued to challenge the laws of nature. We have tested and improved our footwear and won numerous tests and awards both in Norway and Internationally. We have continued our strong collaboration with Gore-Tex as well as added collaborations with ingredient brands like Michelin, BOA, Vibram and Primaloft, but also strong consumer brands like DNT, Moomin and Holzweiler.

We are still humble, but proud to be pioneers in the footwear industry. We will continue to push the boundaries, innovate, and bring award-winning products to everyday explorers everywhere. Whether playing in the kindergarten, a walk in the city or out on a hike, we will continue to protect our customers from the elements keeping them warm, dry and comfortable for many years to come. We can’t wait to show you what’s next.
