Viking Fottøy, one of Scandinavia's leading suppliers of Wellington boots, is stepping out into the European market with the introduction of its new STOP range. The collection will be launched at the ISPO Exhibition in Munich in February 2001. One year after Viking Fottøy was bought out by the Dutch Heva/ Vredestein group, its general manager, Oscar Kippeberg revealed the first part of his vision that "Viking is going to be the modern global brand for dry, warm feet".
