MAGNIFICO BOOTS

Scroll down to see how we handcraft an Icon of Italian history

THE ORIGINS

The original Magnifico was designed by our father Alfredo Cappello. He started with the idea of creating a durable, comfortable boot to be used both on the mountains and in everyday life. So he created a boot that mixes durable simplicity with extraordinary style. When our mother saw the final version of the boot she said: “magnifico”. That’s why our father decided to name it Magnifico.

LEATHER FIRST

We select only the finest italian vegetable tanned leather for our boots. Each boot is made from one large piece of leather. That’s why we still hand make our boots using the
same mold as that our father used before us. Michele and Antonio repeat this process everyday for each pair that leaves the factory.

NATURAL FEELING

We use leather for our linings and italian “Cuoio” for the insole.Both are made exclusively of calf leather so that your feet can breathe naturally.

MILITARY STRUCTURE

We use the same mold that had been once designed for the italian army. This is what gives our boots unrivalled comfort while keeping the italian charme.

IDEAL STITCHING

This technique of stitching the top part of the boots to the midsole is used for military boots. It ensure strength and durability.
Differently from others, this technique provides immediate comfort to your feet since the internal part of the boots is softer.

MILLED OUTSOLE

Each outsole is milled by Antonio and Michele to give the boots their final shape .
This is one of the most delicate steps in boots making which Antonio and Michele have developed 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 whenever you need.

THE FINAL TOUCH

The last part is the one we love the most. We wax each pair of boots to give them that special, natural shiny surface that we like and you’ll love.
