DOLOMITE - A TRUE STORY

Dolomite story began in 1897 when Mr. Joseph Garbuio opened a shoe factory. The company and the story over the years together evolved, creating a success and infinite joy that hang the Dolomite’ boots on the wall of epic enterprises...

History

Dolomite has over a century of experience in developing and producing the best outdoor footwear and apparel. Our roots are in the Dolomite mountains and, together with our Italian design and style, they inspire our brand and products. We have a passion for the mountains, the outdoors and lifestyle.

THE DOLOMITES AND ITALIAN BEAUTY

The majesty of the Dolomites and their unique, unspoilt peaks; priceless artistic works of sublime beauty; a succession of diverse landscapes from the Alps to the sea, enveloped in enchanting colours. This is our land and our culture, the only sources of inspiration for our collections.

The Dolomite shoe factory began operating in 1897. Giuseppe Garbuio, who was only 17 years old at the time,opened the Fabbrica Scarpe Montello store.

In 1954, when an Italian expedition set out to conquer K2 in the Himalayas - one of the most dangerous peaks in the world - they were equipped with Dolomite boots.


In 1960 a Swiss expedition conquered Dhaulagiri, the White Mountain, the seventh highest peak in the world.

These major expeditions gave the brand international visibility and other important expeditions followed.
It is to these extraordinary traditions that Dolomite owes its unique knowledge and experience, which you still find today in our collections.
