Did you know that the founder of Vittoria Cycling Shoes & Helmets was a great cyclist? That’s right and his name is Celestino Vercelli.
In 1976, after competing with many important names in cycling, Vercelli decided to start producing footwear dedicated to this sport and after only two years he produced the first colored shoe.
You might be curious to know that forty years ago, cyclists’ shoes were made of leather with leather soles.
Subsequently the wooden sole was used, then replaced with nylon and then with carbon fiber, while the upper was made of microfibre.
About 10 years later comes the first triumph for the shoes produced by the Vercelli company, worn by Stephen Roche in the Giro d’Italia, in the Tour de France and in the World Road Championship.
But that’s not all, because 1987 was a very important year for the shoes from Biella as it marked the debut of the MTB line (Mountain Bike).
The success of Vittoria Srl cycling shoes led the company to open a new branch in the US, in 2014, but the production remains always and strictly Italian.
You will certainly have seen an advertising spot with cyclists such as Pantani, Garzelli, Hora wearing Vittoria Cycling Shoes & Helmets, haven’t you?
Then you will certainly understand what I am talking about. After all, shoe shops in the province of Biella that offer them are really many, as well as footwear stores in Piedmont.
