La Sportiva was born in 1928

when Narciso Delladio hand-crafted wooden leather boots for many lumber-jacks and farmers of the Fassa and Fiemme valleys (Dolomites, Italy). After the war, the demand for boots increased obliging Narciso to hire new workers: the good name of "Calzoleria Sportiva" crossed the boarders of the valleys. Starting from here the La Sportiva’s history continued to grow. Now the firm produces in Fiemme Valley boots and shoes for all kind of outdoor activities from climbing and mountain, categories in which La Sportiva has the market leadership, to mountain running, trekking and the skimountaineerging market. Recently the company entered in the skimountaineering segment and in the apparel market with a complete selection of technical clothes for running, skimountaineering and climbing. La Sportiva who produces mainly in his headquarter at Ziano di Fiemme, is distributed in more then 70 countries worldwide.

La Sportiva Ultra Raptor II Mid GTX

Is it a shoe, or a boot? Marrying a soft, supportive and shock-absorbing feel with a comparatively light weight, the Ultra Raptor Mid GTX arguably gives you the best of both worlds, says Dan Bailey. For lightweight backpacking, long summer hill days and boggy crag approaches, it's a real winner.
