The Belati® Boot Story
Belati means three generations of Italian boot making experience. The Belati family boot making history started in the family workshop in Chiari (BS) with grandfather Girolamo followed by his son Tommaso. They worked within the community providing the construction and repair of shoes. In 1943 the successor was born who, in 1956, after attending compulsory education, took the place of his father Tommaso. then in 1967 Belati Girolamo Giovanni, who bears the name of his grandfather, began the production of sports shoes, in particular boots for skating. The new activity starts slowly but with time the clientele grew, especially in the Lombardy region. As business grew, Belati Giovanni moved to the current location and settled in a more spacious laboratory, installed more sophisticated equipment and employees. Gradually the company developed more in the production of handcrafted skating boots. In the 1980s Belati experienced substantial business growth, and since 1985 the shoe factory has traded with the major European countries.
The quality of boots suitable for the highest level competitive sports gave Belati the opportunity to supply products to the Italian national team and national representatives of other European countries. The boots have a reputation for consistent construction with particularly fine and resistant leathers and fully meet the personal needs of each athlete.
Today, Belati boots are still handcrafted with carefully selected materials and are treated in detail. Thanks to its modern equipment, the Belati company produces the best that the market can offer. Always attentive to the needs of the the skating sports and providing products of the highest quality, Belati is still a family owned and operated business that offers its customers two product lines:
