Zamberlan
Made in Italy since 1929

Guiseppe Zamberlan (also known as “Bepi” for short), is the mastermind behind Zamberlan footwear. He began his career repairing shoes, which in turn developed into a career of making finely crafted boots. His passion for the trekking and the outdoors led him to search for better materials and more efficient construction methods of boot making to satisfy his need for ‘safer and easier’ movement throughout the mountains.

Zamberlan boots are quality tested for durability and performance. The Zamberlan company, which is situated at the foot of the Piccole Dolomiti, is an ideal testing ground for new products and ideas. It is within these mountains that new ideas for top quality boots are created and cultivated.

So after nearly 80 years of boot manufacturing, the Zamberlan Company is still a family run business, with the third generation actively taking part in all stages of design and production. At Zamberlan, they remain dedicated to their hand made boots and believe they will carry you well throughout your journey.

The Zamberlan Hike Lite is the best pair of shoes I have ever owned for daily activity. The shoes fit well, are very comfortable, and the materials and workmanship are top-notch. Also, they easily accommodate my orthotic. The large number of lacing holes enables you to create the right amount of snugness along your entire foot. I'm not a shoe fanatic, I just look for something practical. My wife, on the other hand, IS a shoe aficionado, and these shoes are stylish enough to make her happy. It's a win-win. I will likely buy another pair when these wear out. The only issue I had is it was difficult to find replacement laces when the original ones wore out.

Unfortunately my husband wasn't able to keep these boots because Zappos doesn't carry half sizes. He tried the 11 and the 12 but needed an 11.5. He was able to order the 11.5 from another vendor and loves them.

This is a very old school leather hiking boot still made in Italy, which is what I wanted. It fits well, has a nice Vibram rocker style sole, and will be fine on medium-length hikes (not enough ankle support for a long day with a heavy pack but that's not what it's for). It also looks great with jeans and a sweater. I've only had them a few days so I can't report on any real hikes but the comfort is good so far and these appear to be well made boots.

I take size 7 or 7.5 but only 6.5 was available. It's a little too small but perfect in every other way--good toe box (deep and not pointy), relatively flat insole (no intrusive arch support) and comfortable at ankle. I'm hoping my size comes back in stock soon. My pair had red laces (not my taste at all)--the white ones are much more attractive IMHO.

They appear to have great quality. The fit great when I first put them on - the leather is great workmanship and the calf leather around the ankle is great. Unfortunately, as soon as I tried to walk in them, i noticed hot spots just behind the toes when I tried to bend the leather. It may have broke in over time, but the flex of the boot was right at one of shoelace eyelets, so that metal eyelet was pushing into my foot when I tried to walk. I'm ordering a pair of the regular Vioz Lux as they come with a wide option to see if that wider foot solves this issue.

For the first 6 months of use, these boots were worth every penny. After 6 months of lightly wearing these, something in the toe cap in the left boot moved and the boot is now pinching my little toe and creating hot spots on my heel and big toe. The right boot still feels great. Not what I expect from a $300 pair of hiking boots.

This is my third pair of Zamberlan boots, which says it all. I have never had a single blister, they are comfortable on the first day. I am a standard size 8 and usually buy a 38 in European sizes, but for these boots bought a 40. The fit is a bit large in the toe box, but the lacing system holds your foot back in the boot so that when you're going down hill your toes do not hit the front of the boot. I have high arches and do not need any additional arch support with these. My only complaint would be that the leather on the toe area does not hold up too well, it gets very scuffed over time (although the boots never lose waterproofing). Overall, these boots are a dream and worth every penny. I bought them for my daughter and she agrees. Great for hiking in the Rockies on scree!

I think Zamberlans tend to be wide never the less I bought larger size for extra width. Quality is great but their customer service is worthless.

These are amazing! Blister free from the moment I put them on. They are a bit stiff because they are so heavy duty but that gets better and better with time.

These are great looking boots. My only concern is that if you are hiking in them, there is no toe guard so you scuff the heck out of them. Better as winter snow boots as they grip excellently on snow or ice.

My husband liked the fit of these so much, he ordered another one to keep in the closet in case they stop making them. Very comfortable and well made, though perhaps not the most attractive shoes in the world.

These boots are amazing. Highly recommend. Would purchase again. Purchased as a last-minute replacement for a walking trip in Scotland. 95 miles on the West Highland Way. I barely had time to break them in - maybe 10 miles or so. I did a number of extra waterproofing treatments before we left. They are so comfortable. Required very little break in time. I got a couple of blisters on one heel - but I attribute that to my own anatomical variations, not the boots. I did add Dr. Scholls inserts for a little additional support. But that's because we had such a long hike ahead of us. We had rain - I stayed dry. We walked on cobbled roads - a lot, scrambled over rocks and roots. The boots were great - great ankle support. In fact - I said more than once "I feel like these were made for my feet".

This is a perfect hiking boot, if you have the strength to handle it, seriously. I have been hiking/backpacking for over 40 years and there is no better boot than the Zamberlan, and the Vioz GTX is the best boot I have ever worn. This is my second pair. Why are they so good: 1) Excellent stability on scree or stony downhills 2) Fantastic for long days when your lower leg is super tired 3) Perfectly waterproof because it is a single piece of leather except for the spine in the back Things to be aware of: 1) To achieve the excellent results above they are heavy; can't have it both ways 2) They can be HOT 3) They take some time to break-in; again you can't have a boot with this stability and then want it to be easy to break-in, those things do not go hand-in-hand Summary: if you have the strength and the patience this is the best hiking boot in the world.

Everything felt great except the toe. I feel like size was correct, but narrow toe box made toes sore. Bummer...sharp boot! But for the price, they had to feel perfect!

Overall a great looking comfortable boot. However, the toe/front of boot narrowed, and made my toes hurt after a couple a bit. I had plenty of room throughout the boot, so I feel the size was correct. Unfortunately for the price, they needed to provide as much comfort as style.

The sizing is unlike other Zamberlan shoes. I am 12 in Zamberlan but not in this style. They felt 1/2 - 1 size small and narrow too. I hope this helps.

Usually I love Zamberlans but these seem to be lacking in comfort. The lining could be more comfortable. I bet the Gore-Tex version is a better shoe but they don't sell it here in the U.S.

I purchased the Zamberlan Trail Lite EVO GTX to take with me on a trip to Israel and Jordan where Masada and Petra are on the tour. I was told the area is rough! I chose these boots based on the great appearance and fact that they are light weight. These boots are great. They are made with superior quality as the outcome. They are comfortable, true to size and width, and have good arch support. They are worth the money and as beautiful as a hiking boot can hope to be. Thank you Zappos.

Amazing boots! Laced 'em up and took off for a day in town. Brought along an old pair of Docs just in case there was a problem. There wasn't! Wore them all day on paths, on the street and behind the wheel. Perfect on all three. They're light weight but supportive. Solid base but they're maneuverable. This is my first pair of Zams and if they keep delivering, it won't be my last. They've got the great look of old school mountain hikers but they're agile, not stiff. Love the color. I'm surprised a person can get a pair of Italian made hikers of this quality at this price point. FWIW, they are a wee bit roomy but not what I'd call a half-size. I wear 9.5-10, 41 Mephisto, El Naturalista and Birks, UK 7 Docs. I may have been able to go down to a 9, but it's easy to "sock up" or put in a heel pad if I need to. Well done Zamberlan and Zappos!
