Makers of some of the finest hiking footwear available, having mastered the craft since opening it’s doors in 1948, the latest from Fracap is now online.

Based in the Italian bootmaking heartland of Lecce, Fracap started out life supplying hikers and skiers with hard working cold weather footwear and soon went on to equip the Italian military who recognised the durability and quality of this expertly made footwear.

Utilising a variety of both exotic leathers and materials found on their own doorstep, the AW14 collection takes on their M127 and M120 silhouettes, with hard wearing Vibram sole units and their Signature Ripple design proving the foundations for a selection of impressive new designs.

Retaining the tried and tested goodyear welt construction technique, Fracap have been adventurous with the executions of their uppers, with great success.

Ranging from smooth, strong and sturdy vegetable tanned leather to supple and suede and even making use of instantly recognisable ostrich leather, the collection present’s some strong new make ups for their iconic footwear.
