The Brogue Boot

Replacing its original low heel sole with an ultralight chunky sole with an on trend aggressive tread. Everything about this boot screams classic brogue with a modern day twist including the oversized brogue detailing.
The Jungle Boot
More than your average combat boot, the jungle boot was originally designed as the name suggests for use in the jungle, specifically jungle warfare where the environments were hot, wet and humid. While you may not be trekking through a jungle anytime soon, thanks to its military origins the jungle boot stands at the forefront with durability and the Maharishi x Fracap Jungle Boots combines this durability with expert craftsmanship, taking the boot from the jungle to the streets. Handmade in Italy from premium vegetable-dyed Italian leather, suede and a durable canvas, you know you’ll be walking around in pure quality that only comes from Fracaps original factory in Northern Italy where the craft has been passed down through generations.
