Vibram has been making outsoles for boots and shoes since 1935 when a tragic accident inspired the brand’s founder - Vitale Bramani - to create soles that were effective on a range of terrains. In 1937 Bramani patented the first Vibram vulcanised rubber sole, the Carrarmato. This outsole design proved to be extremely popular and that popularity has withstood the test of time, with the Vibram Carrarmato remaining one of the most trusted and commonly used soles by mountain climbers, hikers and outdoorsmen.
