The company started his story in the city of Monteroni that is very famous for shoes makers since the beginning of 19th century and today the factory is still there.
At the beginning Alfredo and Giovanni produced strong and quality shoes for agriculture but in 1987 Alfredo’s sons, Antonio and Michele, started a new era for Fracap deciding to produce a military collection for Italian Army and Air Force introducing new models that became icons.
Fracap shoes are known for the absolute quality of materials and production. Every boots and shoes are created using important techniques in the shoes field: “Ideal Construction”.
In 2002 Antonio and Michele decided to innovate again their work. So they introduced a new model of boots, the Magnifico M120, entering the casual and street fashion world.
It was an amazing success making the M120, one of the most iconic boots in fashion.
