Why now? Why not?
There’s never a better time to get involved in your community and become a part of the greater good. We work alongside your fellow climbers, skiiers, hikers, and runners to spread responsible recreation.
La Sportiva is located in Ziano di Fiemme, Italy at the base of the Dolomite Mountains. From the beginning our mission was to create a durable, rugged shoe for the local farmers and mountaineering guides. As La Sportiva grew into a global business we expanded our product offering to include new categories in technical footwear, though alpinism is still the heart of this mountain based family run business. Our love of wild and beautiful places is what drives us to make the best technical footwear for mountain-based sports.
Adopt a Road
La Sportiva North America is based in Boulder, CO. The entire staff cleans and cares for a two-mile section of road on Flagstaff Mountain just west of Boulder. This section of road is directly adjacent to the historical bouldering area of Flagstaff Mountain. Bouldering legends such as Gill, Holloway, Ament, Kor, and Culp all honed their skills at this area just five minutes from downtown Boulder.
Bike to Work
Every year La Sportiva, NA has 100% participation for Bike to Work Day held in June. The company was recognized by the Denver Regional Council of Governments (DRCOG) for their efforts in reducing impact. In addition each employee at La Sportiva received an Eco Pass to use for local buses. This event servew as a reminder that little efforts can be recognized and have an impact on a daily basis.
Soles for Souls
Soles4Souls is a Nashville-based charity that collects shoes from the warehouses of footwear companies and the closets of people like you. The charity distributes these shoes to people in need, regardless of race, religion, class, or any other criteria. Since 2005, Soles4Souls has given away over 13 million pairs of new and gently worn shoes (currently donating one pair every 7 seconds.) These shoes have been distributed to people in over 125 countries, including Kenya, Thailand, Nepal and the United States.
La Sportiva began a partnership with Soles4Souls in 2005 (shortly after the Asian Tsunami that devastated Indonesia, Sri Lanka, South India, Thailand and many other countries on the eastern coast of Africa). Since then, La Sportiva has donated several thousand pairs of footwear to Soles4Souls who in turn has distributed them in areas of natural disaster as well as to people in need across the globe.
We continue to send regular donations of footwear to Sole4Souls and encourage you to also!
