zamberlan, outdoor, boots, backpacker, 965 lhasa gt, hiking, trekking, crafted, history

Guiseppe Zamberlan (also known as “Bepi” for short), is the mastermind behind Zamberlan footwear. He began his career repairing shoes, which in turn developed into a career of making finely crafted boots. His passion for trekking and the outdoors, led him to search for better materials and more efficient construction methods of boot making to satisfy his need for ‘safer and easier’ movement throughout the mountains.

Zamberlan boots are quality tested for durability and performance. The Zamberlan company, which is situated at the foot of the Piccole Dolomiti, is an ideal testing ground for new products and ideas. It is within these mountains that new ideas for top quality boots are created and cultivated. In an age of daily technology discoveries, Zamberlan puts real TLC into their products. So after nearly 80 years of boot manufacturing, the Zamberlan Company is still a family run business, with the third generation actively taking part in all stages of design and production.

Zamberlan products are better now than they have ever been. The Zamberlan 965 Lhasa GT just won a 2010 Editors’ Choice Award for “Best All Around Boot" from Backpacker. These Zamberlan hiking boots could possibly be man's new best friend. The 965 Lhasa GT is packed with performance and rugged durability to get you up and down the mountain in absolute comfort. A Zamberlan Flex GT shank gives the 965 Lhasa GT great shock-absorption and support. The Hydrobloc® nubuck leather upper ensures maximum comfort and precise fit while the R.R.S. (Rubber Reinforcement System) protects your feet and adds durability. You’ll love the GORE-TEX® lining that keeps water out, allowing the foot to breathe. Made in Italy, the Z.A.S. (Zamberlan Air System) construction is extremely lightweight and breathable.

At Zamberlan, they remain dedicated to their hand made boots and believe they will carry you well throughout your journey. Get your Zamberlan footwear for men and women, as well as all things outdoor at
