Cutting-Edge Outdoor Sports Footwear by Tecnica

Tecnica shoes

Tecnica is a cutting-edge manufacturer of athletic footwear for outdoor sports. When you purchase from Tecnica, you’re not only getting a high-quality pair of boots or shoes, but you’re also getting years of research and development and a scientific approach to athletic footwear.

The History Behind Tecnica

Tecnica was founded in 1960 by two brothers, Giancarlo and Ambrosiano Zanatta, as Calzaturificio Tecnica Spa. In 1970, Tecnica launched the first Moon Boot inspired by the moon landing, and this ultimately led to their wild success in the sports footwear world. On-going technological research and a passion for innovation lie at the heart of Tecnica’s philosophy. Since the release of the Moon Boot, Tecnica has expanded to make ski boots and shoes for hiking, trekking, and trail running.

What sets Tecnica apart is their cutting-edge approach to design. They use the latest, most advanced materials and techniques to create footwear that far exceeds what you thought a pair of shoes could do.

  • The Overlap Design - Their proprietary design offers a more anatomical, out-of-the box fit that reduces pressure points typical of standard gusset tongue construction.
  • Self Locking Lacing - The unique lacing system offers precise micro-adjustability so that you never have loose laces while walking.
  • Flexible Construction - The Strobel upper construction with externally lasted EVA midsole offers maximum cushioning and comfort. The dual density EVA midsole with TPU shank offers cushioning, comfort, and arch support that you won’t find in any other hiking shoe.
  • Traction Outsole - Trail running inspired forefoot design for a high level of traction on muddy or rolling terrain. Block-shaped lugs in the perimeter and heel for great stability.
  • Protective Upper - Highly abrasion resistant Polyester fabric with TPU reinforcement is durable, light and water repellent. Full rubber toe rand offers durability and grip while scrambling.
  • Vibram Megagrip - This technology used in our footwear allows for control and high performance in all conditions.
  • Protection From Variable Conditions - Gore-tex is a premium upper material that offers protection from water. Gore-tex liners provide the ultimate combination of waterproofness and breathability.
