Scarpa brand began in the 50's when the three Parisotto brothers decided to start their own business: San Giorgio, initially based in old stables. Gradually and when the activity grows until May 1956, the Parisotto family purchased the SCARPA company. It decided to specialize in shoes for mountain sports. Real shoemaker, Scarpa is without any doubt one of the greatest names in the history of the mountain footwear, both by its history and its current commercial presence. The Italian brand offers a very wide range of footwear, whether for hiking, high mount or mountaineering, passing by the climbing shoes. Manufacturing and offering the best shoes is the motivation of SCARPA traditions and experiences. Nowadays, SCARPA is turned towards the future, and is based on its knowledge to propose the products of the future.
