Since 1908, Fracap - an Italian brand, has manufactured some of the finest handmade boots. In recent years, their hiker boots were made specifically for the Japanese market by a small family owned company, based in Lecce, Italy. Present-day they have brought out three handmade, customised styles and have a wide international presence. All Fracap boots come with a natural gum sole, spare laces and are made from fine full grain Italian leather.
Fracap boot manufacturing heritage stretches back to 1908, where they originally designed boots for Italian farmers, under the Capello family name. They then quickly gained an outstanding reputation for producing quality, durable waterproof boots. Now with a global reputation, Fracap have extended their family of famous Magnifico M120 waterproof hiking boots, to sleek slip on loafers, stylish boat shoes and modern ankle boots.
Sticking to tradition Fracap’s handmade boots are true to size with remarkable handmade quality. Made with only premium Italian vegetable tanned leather, from the original one-piece design, Michele and Antonio Cappello still use this process today, and is how Fracap have kept such a large international following. Instantly recognisable, with their iconic design and Fracap’s ripple sole, they are breathable, comfortable and will last for many years to come.
