Giuseppe Zamberlan, the grandfather, started right after the end of World War. From simple shoe repair he moved on to footwear production, driven both by necessity and by his big passion for his local mountain range, the Piccole Dolomiti. He understood the poor performance of the early existing soles – made of leather with iron studs - and he both shared and supported the revolutionary ideas of Vitale Bramani, founder of Vibram, who was studying and developing rubber soles at the time. Zamberlan is still managed and run by the family, ably assisted by a valuable team supported by skilled shoe technicians: this passion assures the handing on a tradition of quality, comfort and performance.
