What Makes the Lucchese Classic so Classic?
Lucchese Bootmakers, founded in 1883 by Sam Lucchese, may be the most renowned cowboy boot maker in the world, and it all began with the legendary, handmade Lucchese Classic boot. While Lucchese makes many boot options, the original handmade Lucchese Classic remains tried and true.
The secret to Lucchese’s success is no secret. In fact, their success is really an example of the American Dream being realized. Through hard work and persistence, Italian shoemaker Sam Lucchese made his way to San Antonio, Texas and created a timeless brand of quality, handmade cowboy boots.
Lucchese has made boots for everyone… from Hollywood stars like John Wayne and Arnold Swartzenegger, to musicians around the world and even Presidents.
We at Pinto Ranch have personally designed several honorary pairs for the likes of Presidents George H. W. Bush and George W. Bush, and Derek Jeter of the New York Yankees. Lucchese is also the official bootmaker of the Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders.
So why are the Lucchese Classics so sought after? What makes the Lucchese Classic boot so renowned?
What Are Lucchese Classics?
Working with leathers at Lucchese.
Lucchese Classic boots are an original. The craftsmen at Lucchese have been making boots by hand since 1883, passing down their techniques from master to apprentice, generation after generation. They carry on a proud western tradition of cowboy boot making. It’s done the same now as it was in the beginning, and this historic tradition of handcrafting boots is becoming rarer and rarer.
The Lucchese Classics, Lucchese’s most exclusive, bespoke collection, are the foundation of western fashion not only for how they look but also because of the fit. Made by hand at Lucchese’s headquarters in El Paso, TX, the Classics feature a twisted-cone last, created by Sam Lucchese, which revolutionized cowboy comfort. Combined with bona fide design and premium skins and leathers, Lucchese Classics represent the best that Lucchese has to offer.

For more than 135 years, Lucchese Classics have been the cornerstone of western wear, and have set the example many other bootmakers have followed. It’s no wonder Lucchese Classic boots have been worn by icons of American culture from the oval office to stage and film.

Lucchese Women’s Tan Mad Dog Boots
This classic cowboy boot from Lucchese is exactly what comes to mind when you think of cowboy boots. The distressed mad dog finish gives the boot a rugged cowgirl style while the western stitching, all-leather sole and heel, and classic toe medallion reflects the handmade quality. The boot is finished with a fashionable snip toe and a cowboy heel.
These are classic, iconic, and can be anything you want them to be.
Lucchese Men’s Black Ultra Caiman Crocodile Boots
This Lucchese Classic boot features the best cut of belly Caiman crocodile skin Lucchese has. The shaft is adorned with elegant cording designs and a Bayou Caiman inlay. Kennedy pull straps with Presidential croc overlays provide a sartorial and stately finishing touch.
You can’t go wrong with these boots. They’re ultra cool.
Lucchese Men’s Barnwood Full-Quill Ostrich Boots
Lucchese’s Full-Quill Ostrich cowboy boots are a traditional American style. The full-quill ostrich vamp and the dark tan ranch hand calf leather shaft combine for a complementary, contrasting brown tone. The boot also has an ostrich inlay on the front of the shaft, a traditional round toe and a walking heel for comfort.
These are the most comfortable boots you’ll ever wear.
