THE HISTORY OF BRIXIA
The quality of traditional workmanship combined with innovative styling gives form to superior-quality footwear: choose Brixia for an exclusive look that defines who you are.
The Brixia footwear company boasts a history dating back over a century – a heritage that’s maintained close ties with two elements: the city of Brescia and the milestones of mountaineering. Ours is a history marked by challenges, victories and successes. From World Wars to innovations and the accomplishment of great achievements.
Production of mountain footwear started in the original factory based in Sant'Eufemia, Brescia, way back in 1911.
Brixia focuses firmly on the future and immediately champions excellence, forming partnerships for testing and technical advice with such greats as Riccardo Cassin, Carlo Mauri and Cesare Maestri, three towering figures in the world of mountaineering who wrote many famous pages in the history of the sport during the 20th century.
For many years, the Brixia footwear company has manufactured for the renowned Robert Lawrie mountain footwear brand and official supplier of the Italian Alpine Guides Association for mountain and ski mountaineering footwear.
The company continued to grow, developing innovative footwear with unique technical solutions that have accompanied many of the greats in mountaineering on historic ascents of famed summits including K2.
Key to our success is our meticulous, precise workmanship and maintenance of a global vision.
Brixia shoes are not just superior-quality products: they represent the perfect synthesis of the most closely-guarded secrets from the best schools of Italian artisanal excellence.
We manufacture entirely in Italy, in the famed Italian footwear district of Montebelluna. All our footwear uses carefully selected materials of the highest quality, to ensure modern, stylish products with exclusive characters.
