ALPINA is passionate about manufacturing footwear.
Based in Slovenia, in a pristine natural environment surrounded by forests, ALPINA is a brand name that guarantees high-quality craftsmanship, unconventional solutions, and functional design. Among its many product ranges, ALPINA is globally best known as the first choice of Olympic and World Cup winners in cross-country skiing races. However, the top knowledge and standards needed to meet champions’ expectations are integrated into all of the company’s sports and allday footwear, spreading ALPINA’s flair across the globe.
Heritage is an important part of ALPINA’s charm.
Craftsmen in the small town of Žiri have been making footwear since the middle of the nineteenth century. A lot has changed since the good old days, but this dedication to craftsmanship and handiwork has remained practically the same. Every shoe that comes out of the ALPINA development cycle bears traces of timeless wisdom and everlasting know-how.
The ALPINA R&D team is a creative meeting point of top engineers and experts from all sorts of fields.
Their strong background in making shoes is updated with formal and scientific knowledge. Hours and hours of research and exploration of opportunities are profoundly changing the way shoes are produced, used, and perceived. This is why it’s possible for people of all ages to be introduced to shoes year after year that meet their wants and needs in exciting new ways.
