Precious moments of our history are
preserved as a treasure of an inestimable inheritance,
advancing consciously. Forever uphill, since 1928.

1920s 30s 40s

The name “Calzoleria Sportiva” dates back to 1928
when Narciso Delladio, a craftsman from Tesero,
made the first pair of leather boots in his small
workshop in the heart of Val di Fiemme.

1950s 60s

In the early1950s, Narciso’s son Francesco joined the company, building a new and more advanced workshop on the outskirts of Tesero, where he produced the first leather ski boots for a mountaineering market that was slowly becoming more technical.
By the end of the 1960s the brand “La Sportiva” was born and immediately gained national recognition.


The third generation of the Delladio family joined Francesco in the business and with them came the research and development of the first climbing shoes.
Ahead of the times, “La Sportiva” introduced a new way of climbing thanks to the soft, lightweight boots that revolutionised the climbing world.
The first one-piece uppers were also introduced to the mountaineering boot market.


Climbing continued to evolve, becoming an internationally practised sport. “La Sportiva” products were being worn by climbers all over the world.


The company continued to expand, and in 1996 La Sportiva moved to its new headquarters in Ziano di Fiemme.
The Mythos model was introduced, and thanks to its innovative lacing system, it soon became the number one favourite for an entire generation of climbers.


During the first decade of the new millennium,
the know-how gained in the world of outdoor footwear
was transferred to other important and strategic sectors.

La Sportiva enters the tech clothing market with
skimountaineering, climbing and trail running
dedicated capsule collections.
It’s a turning point: the shoemaker becomes
a global brand with a total look
mountainware collection for every mountain lover.

La Sportiva, innovation with passion since 1928.
