Northern Italy has long been the capitol of footwear. From fine Italian leathers, to hikers, to ski boots. Much of the best stuff you can put on your feet, including brands like Dalbello, Tecnica, Nordica, and Dynafit all hail from the foothills of the towering Dolomites in the Montebelluna region.
Founded in the town of Asolo in 1938 by an Irish Earl and businessman known more for his dark beer and book of world records, SCARPA has a long tradition in the region. In 1956, a local family of footwear artisans purchased SCARPA, and the company has been helmed by the Parisottos ever since.
Producers of Telemark boots since the 60s, SCARPA is currently one of the world’s largest, and most recognized manufacturers of alpine touring and telemark boots.
