Dedication is the cornerstone with which La Sportiva has always been committed its “Test&Feel Tour” and every pair of shoes which are coming out the production chain. We’ve decided to give the opportunity to the largest number of people to test the different features which characterized our passion since 1928, when the first pair of shoes were made. The innovation has driven us to dream bigger generation after generation to the first European Tour.

The technical contents of each individual La Sportiva model is the result of extensive research and development which comes from the constant exchange of information between La Sportiva and the best international climbers. The different construction techniques, technology and technical details are honed during field testing, making each product unique.
The collection also offers a different model for each style and climbing techniques thanks to the various construction systems, fit and fastenings. It is the DNA of the shoes: innovation, sensitivity and precision; and in each climber’s DNA: passion, genius and a touch of madness. Putting all this into a winning product is the challenge we have taken on for the past 80 years.

Climbing Walls are the starting point of a normal climber. Everything starts from there. It’s the simulation of the reality that there’s outside and the place where future climbers are imprinted with the first educational steps of what they are going to find outdoor.
