Lucchese boots are the favorite boot brand of cow-folk. These cowboy/cowgirl boots are of a quality design with flashy fashions. Men and women alike can enjoy Lucchese boots with their chaps and spurs. Each Lucchese boot is designed with the utmost precision. The leather is of the finest grade and the wood pegs are hand driven. The Lucchese boot is like a piece of art to a boot maker. Men and women agree that these boots fit the foot like a glove. This is due to the handcrafted design.
The Lucchese cowboy/cowgirl boots may have the look of the wild west, but they also have an urban feel. The boots come in many different styles and colors. You can wear these while riding a horse, or ride them while window-shopping downtown. The Lucchese boot is very versatile. Lucchese has started coming out with boot shoes. These unique shoes are slip-on shoes that have the toe of a cowboy boot. If you wore long pants, someone might not even they are not cowboy/cowgirl boots. Not only were these boots designed for rugged use, but they were also designed for style. Lucchese boots are the flashiest boots in town.
No other boot fits the human foot like a Lucchese boot, thanks to Lucchese's original design and meticulous construction. >From our exclusive "twisted cone last" design and the careful selection and cutting of the finest grade of leather, to the hand-drive lemon wood pegs and meticulous finishing of a boot. Each step is considered critical to our finished product. Our boot designs may demand more money, time and skill, but when you slip your foot into a Lucchese boot, you'll know why we insist on only the finest.
When comparing shoes to boots, remember, a shoe has laces or a strap to hold the foot in place, a boot, only has the instep to do the job. Therefore a snugger fit is needed. When looking for the right comparison in sizing for women, you would wear the same size or possibly down size ˝ size. Example: if your shoe size is a 7 M, you will wear either a size 7 M or a size 6 ˝ M. When looking for the right comparison in sizing for men, you would wear the same size 9D in a boot, as you would in a men’s 9 D or 9M shoe.
The boot should fit the foot from the heel to the ball of the foot. The ball of the foot (the widest part of the foot) should be at the widest part of the outsole. The toes should be at or just entering the toe box area, which is approximately 1 to 2 inches from the tip of the boot.
The single hardest thing for the first time boot wearers to overcome, is the fact that a boot must have slippage in the heel to fit properly. Most, if not all, first time boot wearers feel that the boot does not fit correctly if there is any slippage in the heel. There should be slippage in the heel, anywhere from ˝ inch to as much as one inch, up and down. This is perfectly normal. If the heel does not slip, the heel will develop a blister because the boot too short (small). As the leather stretches, and conforms to your foot, (insoles included which this is called “the flexing of the sole”) the slippage should subside or go away in about a weeks worth of wearing.
The leather should be snug across the instep, but not too tight, which would be considered a pinching or a biting feeling. Snugness on the instep is vital for a proper fit and will stretch out and go away. If it feels like it is biting or pinching the instep, the boot is too small. If the boot is too loose on the instep, it will continue to stretch and ultimately will be too big. If this happens, you may put in a cushioned insert to take up the volume or space. Exotics like Lizard, Alligator and other hard tiled skins must be fitted comfortably across the instep and at the ball of the foot as these skins do not stretch as much as leather does.
The main reason we use all leather components in our products is that leather, unlike man made materials stretches and conforms to your foot. It also “breathes” to let the heat out, and to avoid “perspiration”.
