The Second World War came along and Narciso began custom making special mountain boots. Even in those days, "innovation" was already the watch word with a patent having been filed for a unique lacing system that would later be used by all the leading footwear factories in Italy.
Today, La Sportiva is the brand of choice for activists the world over. Leading athletes including our own Neil Gresham, Andy Kirkpatrick, John Dunne and Kenton Cool to name but a few, all wear La Sportiva because they know how important the right footwear is to ensure peak performance in the extreme environment(s) in which they operate.
More than eighty years have passed since the Delladio family's Great-Grandfather Narciso founded "La Sportiva", a company which today maintains its rightful place at the summit in the world of technical climbing and mountain footwear.
If you are looking for your next pair of mountain boots, you won't go far wrong going for a pair of "La Sportivas" – true innovation with passion!
