Heeding the warnings from numerous weather men of the arrival of winter’s first cold snap, due consideration is needed over the appropriate footwear to tackle the hazardous frost-riddled pavements.
Striking the perfect balance between practicality and style, Italian label Fracap has been producing exceptional quality hiking boots since 1908. Family-owned and run, this small and intimate business has never lost its passion for designing durable and considered footwear for men with intrepid lifestyles and a cultivated wardrobe sense.
Handmade in Lecce, which rather appropriately is the capital of the ‘heel’ region of the ‘boot of Italy’, the brand’s signature Scarponcini mountain boots are crafted with unrivalled precision from the finest grain leather, ensuring you’ll be trekking hillside and city in them for years to come.
Rapidly achieving cult status amongst those in the know, Fracap’s sturdy footwear creations are characterised by their hard-wearing colour-pop laces and trademark shark-tooth soles, making them a distinguished choice for negotiating all types of terrain.
With the design world’s current appetite for all things sport and the outdoors, a pair of Fracap boots need not remain an accessory solely for your mountaineering-based exploits; featuring a robust construction and a heavy-duty grip sole, they’re also the perfect option for wintery days in town. Simply team them with lean indigo denim and a textured-knit to bring a dash of style and substance to your winter tred.
