  • the History of the company has more than 70 years.

In 1935, member of the Italian Alpine club and renowned mountain guide Bramaņi Vitale led a group of climbers who had to climb a few peaks in the Italian Alps.
at First the weather favored athletes, but during the peak Rasika (Punta Rasica), narrow ridge height 3305м was a heavy and prolonged snowstorm.

In those days, climbers used to navigate through relatively flat terrain of heavy boots with a black Shoe nails hard soles, and steep sections – lightweight shoes with flexible and thin soles felt.
They are allowed to feel good rock relief, but did not provide sufficient protection from cold and moisture.
And if the soles were wet, despite the negative temperatures felt icy just slip on the stone, so that the ascent and the descent became impossible.
That boots and has become one of the factors that killed six members of the group who died from frostbite.

Exactly this issue and asked Bramaņi.
To replace the felt was required to come up with a sole that would satisfy a number of conflicting requirements – would be thin and flexible, well shielded from cold and moisture and, of course, were great on the rocky terrain.
as the material Bramaņi chose a vulcanized rubber, a material known to that time about a hundred years.
Almost a year he picked up the rubber to achieve the desired hardness and abrasion resistance, and developed the picture that would firmly gripped on any surface.
In 1937, he patented his invention – the rubber sole Carrarmato, which translated from Italian means "ahead", and began producing soles with tire Pirelli Tire Company.
as a trademark, the inventor chose the acronym of his name and surname (Vitale Bramani) – Vibram.

Shoes with Vibram soles quickly became known among climbers.
But the real world fame came to the company in 1954, two Italian climbers, Lino Lacedelli and Achille, Compagnoni, made the ascent to the second highest (but probably first on the difficulties and dangers of) top of the world – mount Chogori or K2: one of the main items of the Italian athletes were boots with Vibram soles.
Since then, the boots with a bright yellow polygon and labeled Vibram soles have left their traces on all the conquered peaks of the Earth, and the word itself has become almost a household word for Hiking boots.
Now the company produces 35 million soles, one hundred and fifty species per year, and over a thousand manufacturers are using them in their shoes.
