Fracap was born in 1948 by the two brothers Alfredo and Giovanni Cappello, who followed up the passion inherited from their father Antonio, shoe artisan since 1908. The company started its story in the path of the tradition of Monteroni di Lecce, a small town that’s very famous for its shoemakers. When Alfredo's sons Antonio e Michele took over the shoe factory in 1978, they broadened their horizons, launching an innovative line of military shoes that quickly became a success with the main Italian corps, from the Army to the Air Force; the new production includes comfortable and resistant models such as combat and ankle boots, all made using quality materials. The manufacturing techniques adopted are Goodyear and Ideal, ancient solutions for sewing the upper to the sole, which represent an indisputable index of absolute quality. In 2002 the range of shoes was diversified, enriched with creativity and flair, ingredients that immediately proved to be successful.Fracap then took up the challenge of civilian footwear, with an innovative and varied range of walking shoes with an appealing design, combined with enviable comfort and the unrivalled resistance characteristic of military models. Antonio and Michele introduced a new model of boots, the Magnifico M120, which established itself as a hugely successful iconic footwear known everywhere. Although the brand is now well known worldwide, the heart of the company has remained in Monteroni for over a hundred years.
