The Fracap M120 & M125 Hiking Boots Are Back With A Sense Of Exclusivity!
Fracap is back at Stuarts London this season! This week we were very happy to receive our delivery of new stock from the family run businesses latest releases of its classic “Magnifico” model dating back from 1948. Now renamed the Fracap M120 & M125 respectively, the essence of these very special boots are enhanced as they have been specially designed in conjunction with our team here at Stuarts London!
For those of us who are slightly unsure about who Fracap are, they have been in the game a lot longer than ourselves here at Stuarts. A true Italian heritage brand they have existing since 1908, originally crafting boots for farmers under the Capello family name. During this period of the company’s history, the brand quickly gained a reputation for producing strong and durable boots. It was not until 1987, under the stewardship of the 2nd generation of the Capello family, that the company gained a global reputation constructing boots for the Italian Army and Air Forces. The label is now in the hands of the 3rd generation of the Capello family.
Sticking to tradition, all Fracap shoes are handmade in the brands original home of the Italian town of Monterino, which very much like our own Northampton, is the renowned capital of shoemaking in Italy. Each pair of Fracap’s are made using only the best quality materials that can be found in Italy. The M120, in particular, is fully handcrafted from Calf Leather, whilst the suede has undergone a natural tanning process to help the materials preserve their natural qualities.
