Dalbello, founded in 1974 by the true shoemaker Signor Sandro Dalbello, are the Italian ski boot experts. To this day, both the R&D and production facilities are located close to the Dolomites mountains in Asolo/ Treviso, part of the sportsystem district of Asolo and Montebelluna, which is the holy grail of ski boot development and engineering. A uniqueness for this region is its exceptional knowledge, combined with having many dedicated boot specialists and well-proven suppliers just next door. These attributes married with the skilled and experience employees, some of whom are in their third generation at Dalbello, results in a big family who collectively aim for the same goals. These priceless advantages and values offer unique opportunities, which cannot be found anywhere else!
Today, Dalbello is one of the very few ski boot manufacturer still producing in Italy. Almost all components of our ski boots are manufactured either directly in Asolo, in the sportsystem district of Asolo and Montebelluna or through European suppliers.
It is obvious to see and feel that our engineers, designers and athletes are highly ambitious with regards to product performance, comfort and versatility. Focusing on ski boots only, each boot represents the passion, innovation and high tech production, but also handmade shoe tradition of Dalbello. Advanced Italian design, latest materials, fitting systems and unique processing methods like the bonded shell technology are some examples of Dalbello´s search for permanent improvement. Furthermore, in order to source better solutions in terms of efficiency and sustainability we cooperate with well-known universities who support us with various R&D projects.
The progressive product range makes Dalbello the top performing and winning brand for demanding race, on- and off-piste, freeride, freestyle and touring skiers. A huge team of world-class professionals like Markus Eder (Freeride World Tour Champion in 2019), Alice Robinson (winning two GS world cup races in the 2019/20 season) and Sebastian Solevaag (Slalom World Champion in 2021) are involved in the development process and add invaluable feedback whilst still achieve outstanding results.
