From their roots in rock climbing and mountaineering boots, La Sportiva now make the highest quality hiking shoes, bushwalking boots, trekking boots and approach and trail running shoes.
Born out of the Italian Dolomites, Narciso Delladio first began La Sportiva by handcrafting leather boots and wooden clogs for local farmers. As word began to spread, Delladio was then approached to produce custom mountain boots for the Army, using a unique proprietary lacing system. Following the success of this, Delladio began producing ski boots which quickly became known for their technical innovation and aesthetic appearance.
In the 80’s, La Sportiva then expanded into climbing shoes, a new and exciting untapped market. As a product leader and innovator within the outdoor footwear sector, La Sportiva was able to lead the charge on high-quality, innovative, aesthetic, and functional adventuring footwear right from the start.
Today, La Sportiva continues to produce the world's most iconic mountain and climbing footwear. Their signature styles have been adopted by mountaineering experts, climbing amateurs, adventure enthusiasts and more. However, now known as a 360-degree outdoor adventure brand, La Sportiva creates a lot more than just footwear. They also produce technical mountaineering clothing, women’s clothing, men’s clothing, headwear, and adventure accessories.
One of La Sportiva’s most popular products to this day remains their climbing shoes and rock-climbing shoes. In fact, many of the La Sportiva climbing shoes have been made iconic on the big walls of Yosemite and climbing the world's first 9c sport climb.
