About La Sportiva
For nearly a century, La Sportiva has applied its meticulous Italian craftsmanship to boots for alpine sports. Established by Narciso Delladio in 1928, the company started out making leather boots for farmers and loggers, gaining a reputation for quality and durability.
Today, La Sportiva makes footwear for alpine adventures in all seasons. Built for speed, La Sportiva trail running shoes are ideal for muddy creek crossings, rocky ridges and anything in between. Rugged hiking and backpacking boots are nimble enough for tricky terrain and tough enough to stand up to the hazards of trail life. Time-tested mountaineering boots deliver reliable traction on scrambles and technical ascents. And in the snowy season, alpine touring boots carry ski mountaineers comfortably through hut-to-hut traverses and hard-charging descents.
From sport to bouldering, climbing has been part of La Sportiva’s DNA for more than 50 years. Whether you’re heading to the crag or the gym, the brand offers climbing shoes and clothing for every kind of rock and route. From approach shoes and hoodies to ultra-comfy climbing pants, these versatile styles let you brush off the chalk and head straight out for post-session bevvies and burgers.
La Sportiva has a long history of sustainability initiatives, including recycling programs that divert materials from the landfill back into production. In 2012, La Sportiva became bluesign©-certified, continuing its commitment to low-impact manufacturing.
