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.
Diemme announced the collaboration with renowned designer Nicole McLaughlin in fall 2022. Nicole’s conscientious approach to design responds to the ever-changing environments in which we find ourselves daily. We believe in sustaining the backdrop upon which Diemme’s legacy has been built – from trails to the streets and everything in between – and through our collaborative efforts, have learned that not only can we sustain and maintain by creating more consciously, we can do it in a new and exciting way.
Drawing on her signature style of repurposing and upcycling materials, the Diemme Maggiore reimagined through collaborative efforts with Nicole. Using high quality Vibram soles and leftover materials from Diemme’s factories, we’ve created a multi-use shoe featuring a detachable bag –keeping you prepared wherever and whenever.
Diemme and Nicole McLaughlin arranged for a workshop in Paris where attendees had the opportunity to learn from McLaughlin and create their own one-of-a-kind creations under her guidance.
