Celebrating 90 years of innovation.
The history of La Sportiva, founded in 1928, is a tale of ongoing evolution and is characterized by the continued challenges that the brand faces in its aim to keep ahead of the times, investing day by day to build the future of a company that thinks, develops and produces in Italy.
The company from Ziano di Fiemme, Trentino, Dolomites, has grown in recent years from being a manufacturer of technical mountaineering boots to what is today a global brand, passing through generational changes with determination and stimulating growth as it continues to stand in the front line of innovation, prioritizing care for the environment, evolving while remaining true to the Fiemme Valley where today, almost 300 employees work in a production plant that, in 2018, will add a further 4000 square metres wing and new areas for sales and marketing.
Narciso Delladio hand-crafted wooden leather boots for many lumber-jacks and farmers of the Fassa and Fiemme valleys (Dolomites, Italy), after the war the demand for boots increased requiring Narciso to hire new workers: the good name of "Calzoleria Sportiva" crossed the boarders of the valleys. Starting from here La Sportiva's history continued to grow.
Now the firm produces in Fiemme Valley boots and shoes for all kind of outdoor activities from climbing and mountain, categories in which La Sportiva has the market leadership, to mountain running, trekking and the skimountaineerging market. Recently the company entered in the skimountaineering segment and in the apparel market with a complete selection of technical clothes for running, skimountaineering and climbing. La Sportiva who produces mainly in his headquarter at Ziano di Fiemme, is distributed in more then 70 countries worldwide.
Our past is made up of alpinism, passion and innovation. But it is above all made up of people, their stories and memories tied to a brand, which has accompanied so many adventures over the years, from the most intimate and personal to the most widely shared and famous, to those who have written the history of alpinism and climbing.
