At Northwave we’ve been on this journey since 1991. Founded by the Piva family in the heart of Northern Italy’s famous bootmaking region, Northwave began building snowboard boots after years of crafting performance footwear, at a time when most were retro-fitting hunting and hiking shoes.

From the very beginning the company has been entirely devoted to define the way a snowboard boot should be, working hard in the R&D with our team riders and experienced staff.

Today we continue that tradition and after 20 years of dedication Northwave is proud to still offer you the most stylish, innovative, high quality products in the industry.
