The original Magnifico has been designed by Alfredo Cappello, our father and nephew of the founder of the company Antonio. He started from the idea of creating a durable and comfortable boot to be used both on the mountains and in everyday life. So he created a style that mixes an extraordinary simplicity. When our mother saw the final version of the boot she sayd: “magnifico”. That’s why our father decided to name it Magnifico.
We select only the best italian vegetable tanned leather for our boots. Each boot is made from one large piece of leather, that’s why the process is still handmade using the same mold as that our father did before. Michele and Antonio Cappello repeat this process everyday for each pair that comes out from the factory.
We use leather for our linings and italian “Cuoio” for the insole. They are made of calf leather only in order to allow the most natural perspiration to your feet.
We use the same mold that had been once designed for the italian army. This means giving the boots the best comfort while keeping the italian charme keeping an italian charme.
This technique of stitching the top part of the boots to the
midsole is used for military boots. It ensure strength and
Differently from others, this technique provides an immediate comfort to your feet since the internal part of the boots are softer.
Each outsole is milled by Antonio and Michele
to give the final shape to the boots.
This is one of the most delicate steps in boots making and Antonio and Michele can use an experience of over 40 years. This is why we can still handcraft this process. Since outsoles are gloved to the midsole we can easily resole the boots every time you need.
The last part is the one we love the most. We wax each pair of boots to give that special natural shining surface that we like.
