Italian bootmaker Zamberlan is set to become an official partner of Jagged Globe in a deal announced today by Northumberland-based outdoor distributor CDA Ltd. – The Mountain Works.
For over 30 years, Jagged Globe has been at the forefront of planning, organizing and leading mountaineering expeditions and high-altitude treks all over the world. They have a wealth of knowledge and are best positioned to advise their team members on what equipment is required.
Zamberlan has been making superior quality and high-performance footwear for nearly 90 years. They have a wide range of high level Alpine and Himalayan mountaineering boots, which are perfect for climbing and ice climbing in the Greater Ranges.
Jagged Globe is endorsing the use of the Zamberlan 6000 Karka Evo RR on their expeditions. The Karka Evo has the perfect internal microclimate and insulation. The boot has an ultra-resistant shell made of Superfabric® and Microfiber, a technical lacing system, compact design and back side flex notch to help the foot roll. It also has a removable inner bootee with Velcro fastening, which provides exceptional levels of insulation, a double density lightweight PU wedge for cushioning and the new Vibram® Penia outsole with deep lugs for excellent grip. The Karka Evo is automatic crampon compatible, the rigidity being provided by the unique honeycomb structure of Zamberlan’s lightweight Carbon Fiber insole.
Giuseppe Zamberlan started the company with simple shoe repair after the end of World War 1. He then moved on to footwear protection, which was driven by his strong instinct and passion for the local mountain range, the Piccole Dolomiti, where the company is located. 89 years after Zamberlan’s beginnings, the brand is now distributed in more than 40 countries and continues to manufacture its most traditional and prestigious models in Italy. Today, the company is run by Giuseppe’s grandchildren, Marco and Maria, who are equally committed to continuing the tradition of producing superior quality, comfortable and high performing footwear.
