Since 1883, Texas-based Lucchese has been internationally recognized as the legendary bootmaker of the American West. In 1882, the sons of an Italian shoemaker, Salvatore and Joseph Lucchese, emigrated from Sicily, Italy to Galveston, Texas in hopes of pursuing the American Dream. A year later, the Lucchese brothers moved to San Antonio, Texas where they founded the Lucchese Boot Company. Established at Fort Sam Houston, a United States Cavalry school, Lucchese quickly became the primary bootmaker for both the US Cavalry and cowboys alike.
Lucchese Bootmaker has since relocated to El Paso, Texas where it maintains its deeply rooted Texas heritage and time-honored bootmaking processes. World-class artisans use a proprietary twisted cone last to produce boots of superior quality, comfort and fit. From the finest leathers and exotic materials, to the careful attention to detail, each pair of Lucchese boots is truly one-of-a-kind and radiates a sense of tradition and honor to an old-world craft.
