Throughout year Pinto Ranch hosts Lucchese Classics Trunk Shows at all store locations. During a trunk show customers get the opportunity to meet with Lucchese representatives, browse the newest styles from the collection or choose from choice leather hides and skins to create a one-of-a-kind pair of special order Lucchese boots.
Sam Lucchese, Sr. and his brothers immigrated to the United States from Italy in 1880. Three years later Lucchese Bros. Boots and Shoes was founded in San Antonio, Texas where the mainstay of their business was making boots for the US Army Calvary. Sam, Sr. believed that quantity outweighed quality, so by 1919 Lucchese was producing 35 pairs of handmade boots per day. Not 10 years later quality and hand-craftsmanship became the core of the family’s business. Then in 1960 Sam Lucchese, Jr., the founder’s grandson, took over operations and decided to rethink the art of bootmaking. His fascination with understanding the human foot inspired him to design a one-of-kind last to create a boot that would fit like no other. The result was a boot that quickly gained national recognition for its comfort, quality and fit.
"I can't wear any of the boots I've been given, except those you made for me." – President Lyndon B. Johnson to Sam Lucchese, Jr.
In 1987 the Lucchese Boot Company moved its headquarters to El Paso, Texas. Today the El Paso factory finishes 725 hand-crafted boots daily. Every pair is hand-inspected, not once, but twice. And although the leather seams are skived by a machine, the process is repeated a second time by hand. Every step in the bootmaking process relies on human hands to complete the task to near-perfection.
FIT & SIZING
To find the perfect fit you should always start with your shoe size. In any handmade cowboy boot your heel should slip about a quarter of an inch, and your toe should be in the center of the toe box. Our boot experts are always on hand at all Pinto Ranch locations to help you find the perfect fit, or call us toll-free at 800-393-8001 with any questions.
