For La Sportiva the slogan "innovation with passion" means, first of all, respecting the environment from which its products are manufactured. This is why we firmly believe in the resoling process, which allows climbers to give their favourite products a second life reducing the Company's environmental impact at the same time.

Nell'anno dei festeggiamenti del suo novantesimo anniversario di fondazione, La Sportiva celebra la storia dell'arrampicata con una serie di tre video. Prodotta in collaborazione con Sky Icarus 2.0 e presentata dall'ambassador La Sportiva Pietro dal Prà, nel terzo episodio si parlerà di come la svolta culturale degli Anni 70 abbia influenzato anche il modo di vedere e praticare l'arrampicata.
Mountain runner and ski mountaineering athlete for over 20 years, now Miguel Caballero Ortega is a proud coach and caring father. Considering this neither a step ahead or a step back in his career, the evolution of the Spanish champion is just the natural progression of the story of someone who no matter "if stronger, faster, slower", will keep on running. For a lifetime.
Just before leaving for the Innsbruck world Championship, we followed together with Sky Icarus the La Sportiva ambassador Stefano Ghisolfi during a training session, in his personal home-gym before, and at his local crag in Arco then. We talked a lot about training techniques, and Stefano shared with us some important hacks. The secret to never give up? watch the video, and discover it.
