I remember when these boots hit the market in the 90′s and everyone wanted a pair and those who could afford it had a pair. I’m pretty excited about the re-launch of the Dolomite Hawk. It seems like everything we wanted as kids is making a return and the same can be said about boots. It was such a privilege to visit italy a few months ago to spend some time with the Dolomite family and take in the experience.

These are now available at David Z

The Hawk Pro is a performance, style, and fit pioneer that highlighted the debut of several groundbreaking Dolomite technologies.  With its distinctive mid-foot arch and ABS (Anatomical Bridge Support) technology, it was one of the first boots in the market to use its outsole as a structural support and as a dynamic performance solution.  The Hawk Pro also incorporates Dolomite’s Fusion UltraGrip technology with its best in class grip and finally the Hawk Pro marked the debut of Dolomite’s signature fit system – DAS (Dolomite Anatomic System) which provides a superior fit that delivers unparalleled comfort, precision, and performance.

GIAVERA DEL MONTELLO, ITALY. (September 5th, 2013) Dolomite, the definitive Italian Outdoor brand since 1897, announced that it was returning to the American market with an exclusive launch with David Z in New York City and online this fall.  Dolomite and David Z collaborated extensively on the launch, which will highlight the return of the Hawk Pro – one of the most iconic boots in the history of outdoor.

 

Dolomite, founded in 1897, is a performance, style, and fit leader in outdoor and mountain footwear and apparel.  It is the oldest continuously operating outdoor brand in the world and has a rich heritage and legacy including being the outfitter of the 1954 Italian expedition which was the first to summit K2 – considered by many to be the most difficult summit in the world.

 

David Z is the leading independent specialty footwear retailer in NYC and has additional locations in Las Vegas and Online.  David Z and Dolomite have enjoyed a partnership which spans decades and David Z was Dolomite’s key retail partner when the brand was a leader in NYC more than a decade ago.  During this initial market success, NYC consumers adopted the mountain brand for its perfect blend of performance, fit, and style.

 

Despite red-hot consumer demand, the brand inexplicably exited the US market a decade ago and has been absent since.  Comments Dolomite, “We left the US market for internal reasons which included several changes of ownership, but we have always known that the USA consumer loves the brand for its Italian performance, style and fit and we are thrilled to be reintroducing consumers to the brand by launching the Hawk Pro exclusively with David Z – our original partner in the USA.”

The exclusive launch of Dolomite with David Z is the first step of a multi-year rollout of the brand in select specialists throughout North America.  The brand, with its more than 100 years of heritage and innovation, will offer a full complement of footwear and apparel delivering a unique combination of outdoor performance and Italian style.
