The Zamberlan Story
Of great importance to the Zamberlan company was Giuseppe's wife - Maria - who became a skilled machinist and sewer. Later, Emilio, son of Giuseppe, grew up with the same sincere passion and love for the local mountains. He joined the company and helped his father produce shoes until gradually he succeeded him. Emilio continued his father’s work in directing the company towards foreign markets and was supported by his own wife, also Maria, who helped him manage the company.
For more than 40 years now, Zamberlan has been distributing to worldwide markets and today more than 90% of its production is destined for export to some 50 countries.
Today, it is the turn of the third generation of Zamberlan family, brother and sister Marco and Maria, to manage the Italian footwear company.
Like their forefathers, Marco and Maria also inherited the enduring love and enjoyment of the mountains. This purpose enables them through all stages of the company, from design to manufacturing, testing and distribution of the most comfortable outdoor footwear available today. Nearly 90 years after the beginning, Zamberlan has achieved countless product awards and is recognized worldwide for its quality, comfort, fit, performance and striking Italian design.
Most impressive, the company continues to handcraft its most traditional and prestigious models in Italy, in the exact same factory opened by Giuseppe Zamberlan nearly 90 years earlier! This decision and dedication to local production, has allowed Marco and Maria to be competitive with any shoe factory worldwide with unrivaled performance, value, and appreciation.
