Lucchese Boots Craftsmanship
Lucchese was established in 1883. Texas-bred Lucchese uses time-honored craftsmanship techniques to build handmade boots of quality, fit, comfort and style. In every step of our bootmaking process, we rely on human hands to complete centuries-old tasks to perfection therefore making a superior boot.
This old world bootmaking method is more effective rather than using a material like brass nails, which would be forced out of the outsole as it swells when exposed to water.
The Heart of Lucchese
Additionally, lemonwood pegs complete the structure of the boot by holding the insole and outsole together, maintaining the integrity of the hand-lasted instep’s fit.
Lemonwood pegs are carefully hand-hammered into holes cut in the leather and are more malleable than metal, as they expand and contract due to moisture at almost an identical rate as leather.
Lucchese artisans expertly guide the needle through the leather by hand, creating the beautiful stitch patterns — from vibrant to classic — that serve as just one mark of the extreme craftsmanship Lucchese cowboy boots are known for.
