La Sportiva.jpg

Starting In the 1920's Narciso Delladio hand-crafted wooden clogs and leather boots for the lumber-jacks and farmers of the Fassa and Fiemme valleys 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 eighty 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 climbing and mountain footwear.
