The following is the truth. Italy’s Giacometti brothers’ Marmolada boot line is simply the best mountaineering boot we have set out eyes on. We showed an ostrich leather version last year, but seeing them through photography tells very little of the story behind a company that has been doing it for some time (under Walles Calzaturificio). They own their factory and produce footwear for countless brands. They do what they do and do not give a shit about internet hype.

The Marmolada mountaineering line is extraordinary for their builds and construction. Honestly, it is the first boot in 1000 euro price range which I understand. Check the gallery and find purple gator skin,tumble washed white boot – the first boot model they ever produced as well as countless variations in leather and skins. Yes, I am gushingly in love with Giacometti Marmolada.

Big thanks to Alexadra and Michael for giving a helping hand with their minders.
