We are very excited to announce that Fracap Boots are back in stock at Aphrodite Clothing for this Autumn/Winter season. In recent years the little known Italian brand has managed to establish a place within the fashion community. Growing more popular each winter season, they are the perfect item to compliment your winter wardrobe, brown hues and all.
FRACAP SCARPONCINO M120 USA BOOTS – TAN
Fracap Scarponcino M120 USA Boot. These handmade mountain boots are the ideal boot for that man looking for something different. They combine style, comfort and functionality to give you the best possible boot. A pair will set you back £200 though, BUT, if you like it, buy it.
FRACAP SCARPONCINO OTTO BOOTS – BROWN
Fracap Scarponcino Otto Boots in Brown. A variation of their classic style, this more understated style features a classic lace up construction that is based on a rippled vibram sole and premium leather upper. Made in Italy for a truly luxurious finish and feel. We like this one best though not only because it’s cheaper (heck! it’s £20 less at £180) but it’s more handsome at least, in our own eyes.
FRACAP SCARPONCINO M120 USA BOOTS – BROWN
Fracap Scarponcino M120 USA Boot in Brown (£200). These handmade designer mountain boots feature a Vibram sole, fully lined with leather and bright contrasting laces. A quality boot but not really my style, I like the Otto boots better.
Fracap: The Brand
Italian brand Fracap are world renowned manufacturers of the highest quality leather boots. Based in Lecce, Italy, this family owned company prides themselves in crafting each pair of hiking boots with meticulous detail by hand.
The Japanese were seen as the primary consumers that Fracap would target as the brand is well known in the country. However, there has been an increase in demand across the fashion world but availability is limited with only a set number of boots produced every year.
Available in two styles, the ever popular Scarponcino ‘ M120′ (which translates simply as hiking boot) follows the traditional style of hiking footwear and the ‘Otto’offers a more relaxed ‘work wear style boot. Both expertly crafted from premium quality leather mixed with the ripple sole, the Scarponcino Otto boot style is timeless. It’s quality will last year after year and is a trusted addition through the winter months.
Hiking details can be seen throughout the crafting of the boot, from the iconic heavy duty ripple gum sole to the two tone laces and the contrasting material ankle detail; all of these give the boots its character which has made it a firm favourite on the grey winter streets. The ‘Otto’ design is more street, if you get what I mean, that’s why I prefer it.
