Dolomite - A True Story
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.
In 1966 the Italian Alpine Club of Carate Brianza and Gruppo Ragni of Lecco reached the 71° Parallel North in Greenland.
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.
