FRACAP for OWL M120 Vibram Albany Black Sole INDIAN Boot£255.00
There can be few greater pleasures in life than handling goods that have been made with love by artisan craftspeople. FRACAP are the real deal.
Since inception in 1908 when ANTONIO CAPELLO handcrafted his first pair of shoes in a small town in Puglia called MONTERONI, FRACAP'S sense of self has never been compromised. In their own words: "Everything was handmade so every pair of shoes was like a piece of art."
The M120 is the quintessential FRACAP boot. The original MAGNIFICO boot was designed by ALFREDO CAPELLO, the nephew of founder ANTONIO. His aim was to produce a boot that is both durable and comfortable. One that is at home in the mountains as it is in everyday life.
Each boot is crafted from one large piece of the finest Italian VEGETABLE TANNED LEATHER. The processes used today remain untouched, with everything done by hand using the same moulds as made by ALFREDO.
All linings are made from leather, with Italian “CUOIO” chosen for the insole. It's a calf leather that allows only the most natural perspiration to your feet.
The mould of the boot and stitching was originally designed for the ITALIAN army, which gives a fair litmus test of the quality and durability of the shoe.
A VIBRAM sole elevates the M120 that little bit further by giving it a contemporary feel and finish, while the MOCCASIN STITCH detail makes the Indian model one of our favourite boots of the season.
