High craftsmanship from Italy
”… it was my passion to create and the first mountain shoes I crafted, I tested myself, throughout the woods and paths of my beloved mountains …” Even as a child, Nello Grossule, founder of the Italian shoe label Gronell, was passionate about his father’s footwear craft. In 1937 he learned the ancient craft of shoemaking and so, over the years, his boots became known throughout Italy for their exceptional strength and comfort. Today the business is carried on by Nello’s sons Fabio and Mario Grossule, and the Gronell brand now occupies an essential place in the manufacture of technical mountain footwear. From alpine to trekking to city, Gronell offers a wide range of mountain boots for all uses and demands.
Modern technologies and environmentally friendly materials
The old shoemaking craft has been wisely passed on to combine with modern technology and high-quality materials. For example, Gronell, the technical footwear specialist, also works closely with Sympatex: The Sympatex membrane ensures great wearing comfort – whether on the mountain or in the city. The environment is not neglected either: the highly functional Sympatex membrane not only offers 100% waterproofing and windproofing as well as optimal breathability, it is also environmentally friendly, fully recyclable, climate neutral and can be completely recycled.
