Quality has always been our top priority with no compromise, it is as simple as that. We put our utmost efforts, skills, knowledge and passion every single day to achieve a top quality product. Right from the scratch, from the selection of the raw materials, we only consider those that pass our exact quality standards. They are checked upon arrival, the most important ones, such as leathers, right at the manufacturer’s premises.
Every single pair of boots is regularly inspected during each stage of the production cycle, and we are personally, constantly involved in controlling the production line. A rigorous quality check is made at each stage of the production cycle and our finishing department is extremely strict, readily rejecting any pair that does not match the standards we require.
Our team groups together qualified and skilled workers, all of them dedicated to their job.
Field tests are carried out before finalizing a new product and the Zamberlan family personally tests new ideas and models: Emilio on his hiking and trekking trips every Sunday, Marco on his ice climbing activity during the winter, scrambling, bouldering, hiking and backpacking during the Summer and Maria on her hiking and backpacking activity.

Quality also means development of new machines, tools and concepts to improve and smoothen the manufacturing process - such as the F.W.S. or the R.R.S. - and therefore obtain a better product.
Quality is the reason why all the boots of our traditional lines are “genuine Italian products”, produced completely and solely in Italy, in our one factory, where we work every day. No part of our boots whatsoever is made abroad, in Countries where labor costs are cheaper or where the tradition for producing footwear is not as deeply-rooted as in Italy: we strongly feel we cannot compromise on this, because of ethics towards our workers as well as because of the highest and most consistent quality we want out of our products.
In order to suit new demands from the marketplace, we have recently developed a new range of footwear, named Move & Run that have different construction techniques and consequently different on field performance, yet all our quality standards are strictly applied to this side-range of boots and shoes.
Made in EU
Some models of the Zamberlan® footwear collection are produced in the European Community by experienced footwear workers, following highly reliable quality standards. The engineering and the choice of components are still directly put together by Zamberlan®.
Made in Italy
The high-end styles are all hand crafted in Italy by our expert staff to ensure a product of high quality and value and to take full care of the details that make Zamberlan® footwear different.
A very traditional and extremely resistant construction method, which requires great skill and experience to be executed. It features two lines of stitching: the first fixes the upper to the midsole (which is specifically designed for this use), the second fixes the upper to the insole which will later be glued to the sole.
Exclusive patent-pending Zamberlan® Welted construction. The Zamberlan® Welted construction combines the strength and durability of Norwegian Welted construction with the lightness and comfort of a lasted construction boot. The upper is stitched to the specially made insole with a single stitch line and the upper adhesion area is then glued around the insole to form the body onto which the sole is attached.
