La Sportiva was born in 1928 when Narciso Delladio hand-crafted wooden leather boots for many lumber-jacks and farmers of the Dolomite Valleys of Italy. After the war, the demand for boots increased obliging Narciso to hire new workers: the good name of "Calzoleria Sportiva" crossed the boarders of the valleys. Starting from here the 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 , to mountain running, trekking and the ski-mountaineering. 90 years later, La Sportiva is distributed in over 70 countries worldwide and retains market leadership internationally in climbing and mountain footwear.
The solution? A performance fibre invented by nature and engineered for people. Icebreaker has pioneered the use of merino wool in the wilderness since 1994, and has fused nature and technology to create merino layers for the outdoors, for performance sports, and for the city. Icebreaker’s merino combines the best qualities of traditional wool, synthetics and cotton. It’s soft and non-itch, it’s warm in the cold and cool in the heat, it breathes to prevent clamminess, and is miraculously odour-resistant. And because it was made in the mountains, rather than a lab, merino wool is renewable, recyclable and biodegradable.
