"We want to make excellent products respecting human values, our environment and our customers"

The design, technology and workers of our company would be nothing without a precise vision, without the creativity and desire to improve every day that distinguishes us. We keep faith with our principles, we have decided to use an ecological material for the packaging of our shoes, a cardboard made with raw material from forests managed in a correct and responsible manner according to rigorous environmental, social and economic standards.

This is why we use the FSC brand. Furthermore, our company uses certified energy from renewable sources, as evidenced by the GREENER brand.

The story behind the Lion of the Crono shoes

The bronze winged lion sculpture in the Piazza San Marco of Venice arrived in the 12th century and became the symbol of our region when Veneto was annexed to Italy in 1866. It represents the Lion of Saint Mark, the traditional symbol of Saint Mark, the evangelist.

The flag of Veneto
In times of peace, the Lion was represented with its paw on top of the book. In times of war with the unsheathed sword.

Crono is deeply rooted in the Treviso province in Veneto, the heartland of Italian cycling.
That’s why the Lion is on our products.
