A proud tradition founded in 1887 Oliver Footwear, Australia's leading Safety Footwear Manufacturer, owes its origins to gold mining in Ballarat, Victoria. Our founder James Oliver, a pioneer of trade, came to the gold fields of Ballarat, one of the world's richest alluvial and underground mining sites in the mid-1800s. Founded as Oliver & Stevens business, his new venture began to produce hard and durable boots for miners and farmers in 1887. His demand for mining failed, so he returned to the boot making trade he had learned in England. The same entrepreneurial line, which marked the establishment of the business in 1887, continues today with Oliver Footwear's commitment to producing quality footwear. Product research and development to address the needs and demands of demanding workplace safety environments will always be a central part of our company philosophy. Oliver is currently part of Honeywell Industrial Safety, which offers not only the most comprehensive Personal Protective Solutions in the world, but also the most respected brands that entrust safety to workers.
