my love affair for Lucchese cowboy boots started about 15 years ago, way before i even thought about moving to jackson hole, at a vintage shop in new york city. i can’t remember the name of the shop or where it was, but i vividly remember spotting a pair in the window, rushing in to try them on, and walking away a proud owner with zero room in my suitcase for my newest Lucchese boots. they were a size too big but i didn’t care because they were perfect. i rocked those bad boys almost every day of college and they still get a lot of lovin’ – it was love at first pair!
boots have always been my thing; the thing i can’t seem to have enough of in my closet, the thing i see as an investment to a life long collection. i was super pumped that Lucchese let me pick out a pair, because duh, i can always use another. i went with the Brittons in Grey, as seen above! to me, cowboy boots are the epitome of western style and culture, as well as a symbol of our good old US of A. therefore, i believe you can wear cowboy boots in any city, with any outfit, for any occasion. i’ve become a sort of cowboy boot connosiuer, if you will, so let me tell you that Lucchese is one of THE top makers out there.
the beauty of cowboy boots is they will literally only get more gorgeous with wear and time. the cost per wear on these beauts is pennies for how much use i get out of them. step up your boot game and check out my top favorite Lucchese boots:
boot tip: i take my boots to a local cobbler who adds a thin rubber sole to the bottom of them, so i can wear them all year round and not worry about slipping on ice! it’s usually pretty cheap, like $30, and helps your boots live even longer.
