Everything began at the beginning of the 1900 with our grandfather Gustavo, shoemaker. 50 years later, our father Alfeo established Aicad and in 1986 the business went to us, Lille and Luca.
Lightweight, comfort and freedom of movement are the features that we’ve always looked for when designing our products. During the early 1990s, the PROJECT LIZARD® was born and has evolved with a belief that “in order to be comfortable, footwear needs to respect the foot”. From that time onward, all our efforts were invested to create anatomically friendly footwear. In 1992 the first result of this philosophy was the sandal Hike. In 1997, we launched the shoes Fin and Paw, the first minimalist outdoor shoes ever.
In 2010 we started producing the Shield, an innovative waterproof and breathable over-sock.
In winter 2012/13, our minimalist innovation continues with the new Kross, that maintained the features of the summer version, adding warmth and extreme grip on cold terrains.
