A summer with Dolomite Veloce GTX

The professional mountain guide Harald Fichtinger has spent his summer in the Alps climbing wonderful, natural mountains like Piz Badile, Grand Jorasses and the Wazespitze, always accompanied by the Dolomite Veloce GTX. This was his experience with the mountaineering shoe:

It represents the perfect balance between stability and freedom of movement. Currently I don't know any other model as functional and performative as this one".
