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 fashion footwear, spreading ALPINA’s flair across the globe. 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.
