In 1960 two brothers, Giancarlo and Ambrosiano Zanatta, established Calzaturificio Tecnica Spa, an industry that had evolved a long way from the small artisan workshop set up in the 1930s by their father Oreste who made working boots for men who toiled in the nearby Dolomites.

Tecnica has been a cutting-edge company in the manufacture of performance footwear for outdoor sports ever since 1970. On-going technological research and a passion for innovation lie at the heart of its philosophy.
