Outstanding Innovation in Design
Zamberlan Boots are all about innovation: more than eighty years of it. From the moment that founder, Giuseppe Zamberlan, looked up at the Piccole Dolomiti Mountains near his home in Italy, he dreamed of creating a better climbing shoe. He developed a passion for all the facets of a perfect boot. He supported the revolutionary ideas of another Italian, Vitale Bramani, the founder of Vibram, as he developed rubber soles to replace the inferior leather ones with iron studs that climbers had been using. With a better sole, Guiseppe then worked with enhanced designs to build a better fitting shoe, one that would hold up under the rugged conditions of mountain climbing. It is that passion for innovation and excellence that Backpacker Magazine recognized in 2013 when they gave Zamberlan the coveted hiking boot. Zamberlan makes boots to beat all the rest.
A Family’s Passion for the Mountains
Zamberlan boots are synonymous with a love of the mountains. First inspired by the Piccole Dolimiti range, Zamberlan boots and shoes are made for backpacking, trail hiking and speed hiking. But Zamberlan has you covered on those days when you’re just roaming the trails and forests of the lower countryside, too; for those less strenuous hikes, Zamberlan’s Norwegian Welted boot line gives you a lightweight polyurethane sole and Tuscan leather uppers to offer you unprecedented water-resistance and years of wear in a re-soleable boot.
Three generations later, the Zamberlan family continues to design, manufacture and thoroughly test some of the best footwear for hiking, backpacking and trail hiking in Europe. With the artisanry of skilled craftsmen and a tradition of excellence, they bring eighty years of renowned Italian workmanship to all of their products. Zamberlan still crafts their most prestigious models in their factory in Italy, just as they always have. It’s a family tradition.
