PURE EXPERIENCE - 120 YEARS OF OUTDOOR EXPERTISE FROM DOLOMITE
For more than 120 years, Dolomite's cobblers have been keeping their last, maintaining the extraordinarily high quality standards of the time they were founded. Because of this straightforwardness, the story of the traditional Italian company from Cortina is quickly told: Guiseppe Garbuio, the founder of the company, was in the world for just 17 years when he opened his shoe shop including a small manufactory "Fabbrica Scarpa Montello" in 1897. Initially, the talented Garbuio created purpose-oriented work shoes for the outdoor sector. Of course, these were specially designed for the mountains. However, the know-how that the brand quickly acquired in the process was not hidden from the early protagonists of the emerging mountain sport.
Constant innovations and quickly proven technologies increased the good reputation of the company. The great mountaineering successes of the premium shoes did the rest as a result. The first ascent of the K2, one of the most difficult eight-thousand-metre peaks to climb, can be described as a hussar's piece. The Italian expedition team was equipped with Dolomite shoes. The "Mountain of the Mountains" was conquered as early as 1954. The next milestone in the company's history followed on 13 May 1960: a Swiss expedition team conquered the Dhaulagiri in Dolomite shoes - another demanding eight-thousander in the Himalayas. And even today Dolomite carriers climb the highest mountains or hike to the proverbial end of the world. They can always rely on their shoes.
DOLOMITE PRODUCTS: HIKING BOOTS WITH PRESTIGE
The Italian national colours and a D stylized as a mountain accompany the Dolomite lettering in the Brand logo. Actually, that says it all. Dynamic mountaineering combined with stylish and high-quality Italian shoemaking. Dolomite has stood for this since 1897 and is far from tired of deviating from these principles. The focus is on quality, comfort and design both for the hiking shoes from the performance sector and for the lifestyle boots. The latter is often based on the scenic diversity of the Dolomites.
And those who know the breathtaking nature there know how inspiring it is. But even more important is the technological significance of the Italian brand for mountaineering. Dolomite's expertise not only influenced the beginnings of modern alpinism, but continues to drive it unconditionally to this day. No compromises in material, workmanship and innovation - performance is the ultimate goal. Whether Vibram soles, which guarantee a precise step, breathable mesh material or high-quality full grain leather for stability. All these quality features give Dolomite shoes an unmistakable character - from the sole to the upper.
