Outdoors (and socially distancing), every sport has its footwear

Sport knows no season, sex or age. There are, however, sports that are more tempting to practise during the summer months, in the open air, maybe even on holiday, far from the stress of work. Especially this summer – far from normal with the pandemic obliging us to keep a distance – outdoor sports immersed in nature will be the option of choice for many. For enthusiasts or competitive players, each sport requires the right footwear, shoes that perform well, that combine technical elements, comfort and – why not? – fashion, which is guaranteed by made in Italy. While many sports disciplines are overseen by big international players, there are, however, Italian brands, sometimes niche, which are defined by their attention to detail and impeccable construction, elements that absolutely make the difference.

Breathable materials, high-performing soles for better grip and memory foam insoles for superb cushioning offer added value, making the shoes more comfortable. For golf, tennis, running and trekking, here are some of the outdoor sports models you can choose from.
