Outdoor & urban footwear from the heart of the Alps

Ever since 1925, Dachstein - the shoemaking company has been combining traditional Austrian shoe manufacturing craftsmanship with innovative ideas. Performance or Lifestyle? The Austrian footwear manufacturer Dachstein don’t believe in the either/or approach.

The line between technically functional outdoor footwear and urban leisure sneakers is increasingly disappearing. Even the name of the company – Dachstein Outdoor & Lifestyle GmbH – pays tribute to the new equilibrium between these two worlds. The team constantly innovates, using knitwear in trekking shoes, integrating ultra-modern materials and developing their own progressive ideas. All this, and the immense enthusiasm of the people behind the brand, have helped to mould the Dachstein image. In 2018 Dachstein took another bold stride toward international growth by signing a strategic partnership with Luhta Sportswear, the Finnish outdoor clothing specialists.


be unique

For Dachstein, alpinism is not a sport, not a competition, but a philosophy, lifestyle and passion. Every moment in the mountains is unique - whether it's a short walk or a demanding mountain hike. 


CEO, Christian Wolsegger describes the company in a nutshell: "We are shoemakers, we are athletes and we are outdoor enthusiasts!"

So it’s no surprise the Dachstein team knows so much about the needs of mountaineers, trailblazers, hikers, trekkers, walkers and all those who enjoy an active sporting outdoor lifestyle.
