Vittoria began making cycling shoes during the seventies by Celestino Vercelli, a professional cyclist who competed in races like the Tour de France, Vuelta a Espana and Giro d’ Italia. Making use of this competitive experience accumulated on the roads of Europe, Celestino brought Vittoria to the heights of international cycling. And it’s him therefore, that is the Vittorias first “testimonial” of the emerging brand, and its products.
Worn by some of the best riders of the last twenty-five years: Moreno Argentin, Mark Gorsky, Sean Kelly, Maurizio Fondriest, Stephen Roche (in the golden season of successes in Giro d' Italia & Tour the France), Stefano Garzelli, to recent years to testimonials from Thor Hushovd, Marco Pantani and Luca Paolini. We’re not only road cycling. The experience of Vittoria has allowed us to refine models suitable for offroad and other specialities. With Vittoria, riders like Giovanna Bonazzi, Paola Pezzo, Manuel de Vecchi, Alessandro Fabian (THL/Triathlon) and Hanka Kupfernagel have distinguished Vittoria as a shoe for champions of all riding styles.
A product that contains a history, since 1976, and for the one who chooses it, it's a guarantee of innovation, style, quality and price.
The quality of Made in Italy, the experience of an historical firm, a family's passion for cycling, not to mention the avant garde in design and research materials, to give Vittoria cycling shoes sole.
These are the elements that have made Vittoria a firm leader in cycling footwear, a protagonist for over thirty years in the world of the professionals and always first choice for amateurs.
A modern shoe, that is firmly tied to the Italian tradition of the high quality of manufactured products.
