Diemme is inspired by the heritage of hiking boots that have been made for centuries in our home region in Italy’s spectacular Dolomite mountains. Diemme designs evolve those traditions, using the finest materials and techniques to make hiking boots and sneakers that go the distance in mountain terrains or pounding city sidewalks.
We make all Diemme products under one roof at our family factory in Onè di Fonte, Veneto, a small town in north-eastern Italy. For centuries, this region has been regarded as the spiritual home of handmade outdoor footwear. Every Diemme pair is hand-crafted by expert workers producing limited production runs of high-quality artisan products. Diemme is sold by of some of the world’s most esteemed retailers.
A hiking boot at its core, the Cornaro is named after Diemme's favorite pizzeria and is made from wax-treated suede with rubber toe caps and metal D-rings. The Cornaro — which is a sleeker, more streamline hiker than most — is a shoe undoubtedly blurring the lines between hiker and trainer, especially now Palace and C.P. are involved too. This season, the two brands have reimagined the low-cut silhouette in two vibrant colorways of black/lilac and a pleasingly-autumnal ensemble of green and brown hues.
