Zamberlan started producing footwear in 1929 and was one of the first brands to use rubber soles (back then, soles were usually made of leather). In the next 50 years Zamberlan grew exponentially and became known in various markets, including Japan, the United Kingdom and of course Italy. In 1985 Zamberlan patented the Hydrobloc leather (water-resistant but breathable leather) and in 1986 it launched the first women’s specific hiking boot – note that at the time hiking gear was designed exclusively for men.  Today, Zamberlan makes high-quality hiking, trekking and mountaineering boots – many of them are still produced in Italy with the highest level of precision. Popular models from Zamberlan include the Vioz backpacking boot and the Guide mountaineering boot.
