Red Bands - A Kiwi Icon. Traditionally gumboots have always come up to just below the knee. However in 1958 staff at Marathon Rubber Footwear - the forerunner to Skellerup - decided to create a shorter boot and on 21st October the first pair of Red Band gumboots rolled off the production line and became an instant hit around the country.
