Fracap is a family-run brand founded in 1908 by Antonio Cappello, who believed every piece of footwear was a piece of art. The name Fracap came about by using the Italian word Fratelli (meaning siblings) and adding it to Cappello, and since then the company has gone from strength to strength.
Fracap uses the finest vegetable-tanned Italian leather (only a single large piece), and the same boot mould since the early 20th century. All the linings are made from leather and Italian ‘Cuoio’ for the insole (both made exclusively from calf leather), which is great for allowing your feet to breathe.
To this day, every single boot is milled by family members and company owners Antonio and Michele, which give the boots their final shape. This method means the boots can be re-soled even after years of use. Every pair is waxed to give a natural shiny surface appearance that makes them even more appealing.
