Foundation Member – La Sportiva

Starting in the 1920’s Narciso Delladio hand-crafted wooden clogs and leather boots for the lumber-jacks and farmers in the Italian Dolomites. The Second World War came along and Narciso began custom making special mountain boots. Even in those days, “innovation” was already the watch word with a patent having been filed for a unique lacing system that would later be used by all the leading footwear factories in Italy.

More than ninety years have passed since the Delladio family’s Great-Grandfather Narciso founded La Sportiva, a company which today maintains its rightful place at the summit in the world of technical footwear.

Today, La Sportiva is the brand of choice for activists the world over. Leading athletes including our own Sabrina Verjee wear La Sportiva because they know how important the right footwear is to ensure peak performance in the extreme environments in which they operate.

If you are looking for your next of pair trail running shoes, you won’t go wrong with a pair of “La Sportivas” – true innovation with passion!
