Epic Women: women mountain boots collection with a special last developed for Women

"Developed with women for women". This is how Zamberlan® created Epic Women collection. It is a new women mountain boots collection with a special last developed for women.
"We have always had women’s styles in our collections – says Maria Zamberlan General Director, responsible for the Epic Women project and Calzaturificio Zamberlan president – Nevertheless this year represents an important step in our history: indeed we celebrate our 90th anniversy and we introduced the new “Epic Women” line. It has been totally designed, conceived, tested and produced for the needs of feminine fit, weight, energy, performance and aesthetics. Since 1929, Zamberlan®, a true pioneer in the sector, has been producing footwear for all those who live the mountains with passion and genuine respect: we could not miss a line dedicated to courageous women. They have been the pioneers without any model to refer to, and became inspirational and examples to be emulated. The Epic Women line is a hymn to their talents and their legacy."



The Epic Women mountain boots have been conceived and designed by an almost all-female team, which has been able to interpret and combine three fundamental factors:
• today’s needs of mountain and nature lovers;
• the craftsmanship and constructive peculiarities: the boots have technical features built on the foot, on the fit and posture of women;
• the fearless spirit of the first "climbers" who challenged the prejudices of the time and marked history by opening the way in the mountains and in life, to all women.

The three brave women who inspired the new women mountain boots collection

Mountain peaks haven’t been kingdom only of male alpinists, even if we use to think to teams of men climbers. But, in the XIX century, there were three brave women who conquered the Dolomites with their determination and strength.

Marie Paradis was the first woman to reach the summit of Mont Blanc. Waitress in a Chamonix inn, she thought she might take advantage of the occasion and earn some money, so she set off without any mountaineering experience. Exhausted, on July the 14th 1808, she reached the summit. 4,810 meters, without training and with obsolete gear.

The adventure of Amelia Edwards is reported in her book, 'Untrodden peaks and unfrequented valleys - Throughout the summer' of 1872, the fearless and rich Englishwoman explores the Dolomites, describes traditions and characters, reaches peaks and inaccessible places, crosses rocky and panoramic paths guided by her great curiosity, inexhaustible enthusiasm and thirst for knowledge.

In 1838 the noblewoman and French traveler Henriette d'Angeville challenged the opposing opinions, the bad omens and the heavy prejudices to follow the uncontrollable desire to defy Mont Blanc. At 44, with six guides and two bearers, she dominated ascents, the cold and high altitude. Considered crazy at the start, eventually celebrated when she came back safe and sound after the heroic adventure that made her the second woman who climbed Mont Blanc.

These three women inspired Zamberlan® to create EPIC WOMEN, an exclusively female oriented collection, developed, tested and designed for female shape foot, in collaboration with the shoes designer Defne Yalkut.
These women mountain boots are made in Italy in the historical factory based in Torrebelvicino (Vicenza), at the foot of the Piccole Dolomiti, following the ’Handmade Philosophy’ that represents Zamberlan® style. But it is also an invitation to enjoy every experience into the deep, discovering the joy of the journey and each stage step by step with the unique rhythm of handmade products.

Three names that opened the way

The three new models of the line bear the names of the first two women who reached Mont Blanc summit and of the enthusiast who explored the almost unknown Dolomites.
