For three decades the founders of Diemme footwear, Dennis and Maico Signor, have crafted amazing shoes out of the Calzaturificio Diemme workshop. Since the humble beginning in 1992 they have built brick by brick, always with a sense of pride for the product of high quality, the Made in Italy.

The first 20 years of Calzaturificio Diemme were dedicated to private label production. From the finest luxury houses to army contracts, the brothers went the extra mile. The past 10 years have seen the rise of Diemme as a brand. In partnership with the Norwegian showroom Blender Agency and the Swedish distribution MNO, Diemme has gone from a niche brand in the Japanese market, to a global recognized fashion brand. However, Diemme has never left its outdoor roots, and with the help of numerous interesting collaborations in the past decade, Diemme has positioned itself as a go to hiking and winter boot brand.

To celebrate Diemme's 30-year anniversary we have, in collaboration with our Danish friends at Moon International, made a book to honor Diemme's history and identity. The book is divided into three volumes, capturing Diemme's story with a narrative that reflects our Italian-Norwegian essence, told through photography Asolo, Italy to Oslo, Norway. The last part, the Archivio, is a collection that features our campaigns throughout the years. Together, the three books form a union of the past, the present and the future. We are proud to present Diemme.30.YRS.
