Redesigning Winter – The Kahtoola Story
Sliding down an icy gully in the Italian Dolomites might change the way you think about your winter footwear. That was the only inspiration that Danny Giovale needed to launch Kahtoola® — a company that’s been redesigning winter for over a decade.
Danny took that mishap in the Dolomites back to his hometown of Flagstaff, Arizona and began engineering what would become the company’s pioneering Kahtoola Traction System (KTS). Our first designs made their debut at the 2001 Outdoor Retailer Show. Since then, we’ve found even more ways to make equipment-related excuses, take a back seat to your desire to make this winter your best winter ever.
Kahtoola is a collection of winter geeks.
We combine our love for winter with our love for technology. Each year, this results in a product line that we believe will exceed every expectation you’ve had and help you achieve a new level of winter adventure.
