La Sportiva for ZEGNA in the Outdoor Capsule Collection

Two special edition technical shoes from the Trentino brand La Sportiva, the technical brand for technical mountain enthusiasts, are part of the new Zegna collection.

Beyond Boundaries, is the concept that inspires the first capsule collection that the luxury leisurewear brand ZEGNA dedicates to the outdoor world: inspired by the mountains and winter sports and with the aim of allowing the maximum expression of oneself in every context, starting from the natural one. The capsule also sees the debut of the new logo and the new graphic identity of Zegna.

To complete its capsule with technical footwear, Zegna strongly desired the contribution of La Sportiva, a leading brand in the outdoor market since its origins in 1928.

“Ours is a technical brand for technical mountain enthusiasts – declares Lorenzo Delladio president and CEO of La Sportiva – and we are stoked that an Italian company like Zegna, leading player in the global luxury menswear sector, has chosen La Sportiva as a technical partner for the footwear of its first Outdoor Capsule. A very authentic approach based on strong values and a strong heritage is what Zegna and La Sportiva have in common, together with a deep know how, costant research and innovation. The result is an high quality product made with the best available technologies.”

The paths of the Dolomites almost come to ideally cross with the paths of the Oasi Zegna nature reserve in Trivero: the result of the collaboration is harmonious and coherent.

The Beyond Boundaries capsule is composed of clothing, footwear, skis, helmets, and accessories made in collaboration with the best technical partners.

With La Sportiva in particular, Zegna has created two special editions of two iconic models of the Trentino brand: the TX Top GTX, a light and technical approach shoe, perfect for winter use thanks to the Gore-Tex membrane and the Vibram Megarip sole; and the Ultra Raptor, the symbolic shoe of the La Sportiva Mountain Running category, comfortable, robust and with maximum grip, ideal for any type of off-road use over long distances.
