GORE-TEX® Experience Tour: Ten finalists have been selected for the project with La Sportiva

The 10 finalists of the GORE-TEX® Experience Tour project “Design your very own TREKKING BOOTS with the GORE-TEX® brand and La Sportiva” have now been selected by the Gore and La Sportiva team!
The ideal trekking boots are about to become reality.

We would like to thank so many of you for accepting the challenge and taking part.

Among the many participants, the Gore and La Sportiva team has singled out 10 who will go on to take part in the final phase. They will have until 13th March to confirm they are willing to participate by sending their designs developed based on the La Sportiva trekking/backpacking  models shown on the website of La Sportiva.

Following this phase, they will enter the exciting final, with the selection of just 3 winners to go to the La Sportiva headquarters in Val di Fiemme, Northern Italy on 28th and 29th March and together with Gore experts and the La Sportiva R&D team, actually create the boots based on their own designs: transforming them into reality!

This is the aim of the initiative, part of the GORE-TEX® Experience Tour, which will give 3 lucky winners the chance to show off their craftsmanship potential and display their skills at professional level.

United by the passion for outdoor pursuits, in such a stimulating and creative environment, all that is left to do now is assess the designs, and may the best men and women win!

The 10 lucky finalist candidates are:
Andrea Scarian, Dimitry Friedman, Gina Taha, Maja Djordjevic, Marco Vanella, Matei Stefan Robert, Mattia Donati, Sylvain Bazin, Tristan Lambert, Zeljko Dimitrijevic
