SCARPA builds performance footwear for climbing, hiking, skiing, mountaineering, trail running and other outdoor pursuits from its headquarters in Asolo, Italy. SCARPA has been owned and operated by the Parisotto family since 1956. In 2005, SCARPA opened a North American headquarters in Boulder, Colorado, staffed and directed by veterans of the North American outdoor industry, to oversee sales, marketing and distribution in the U.S. and Canada. SCARPA stands for Società Calzaturiera Asolana Riunita Pedemontana Anonima, which in Italian means Associated Manufacturing Company of the Asolo Mountain Area, looking to SCARPA's roots as a coop of individual artisan boot makers in the 1930's.
