Hello everyone! I’ve decided to do a Lucchese boot review of my favorite pairs of Lucchese men’s boots. I’m hoping to give you the information that you need to know to make an informed decision on whether you would like to have a pair of these boots. I’m gonna break it down detailing Comfort, Durability, and Style / Trends. Style and Trends breaks down some “style” information if it applies (i.e. Different styles these particular boots come in if applicable, and maybe even certain style situations such as work or play that you might want to wear them. I will also break down the “biggies” such as price, key features, and any pros and cons that I have come across in my review of this boot. Also, check out our earlier posts with more information on Lucchese boots here. As always, if you have a question or comment, I myself and any viewers would love to hear about it in the comment section below. Let’s get started.
Comfort – A Boot With Great Support & Feel
As any boot, Lucchese boots need to be broken in and start feeling a little better on your feet with every passing day of wear. You definitely want to wear them on some pavement to roughen up the soles. They can be very slippery on smooth surfaces coming right out of the box. I have definitely noticed great support for my feet and my ankles which I thought might be a problem, but they feel great. When it comes to comfort, I could definitely wear these for both work and play.
Make sure your boots fit correctly. Here is a Guide by Lucchese to get a great Lucchese boot fit!
Durability – Work Or Play, Your Feet Are in Tony’s Hands
Who said quality craftsmanship in America is dead? Quality craftsmanship is evident is these boots. You definitely get your moneys worth. Lucchese boots started out handcrafting cowboy boots in 1883 in San Antonio, Texas and they have kept up that tradition to this day. Each pair of Lucchese boots are meticulously hand crafted and built with the finest parts and exotic materials that give Lucchese it’s signature look. These boots will last a night out on the town and even more importantly, out on the trail or modern job site. Once you purchase a pair, you can throw away any notion if these boots will hold up or not. They are as good as the name stamped on the sole of these beautifully constructed boots.
Here is the first boot I want to show ya. Definitely one of my favorite Lucchese boots ever!
Lucchese Men’s Antique Italian Red Giant Gator Boots
- Comfort: Really Comfortable
- Durability: Tough As nails
- Style: Unique & Classic
- Seller: Pinto Ranch
- Price: $1,595.00 (Now on Sale and even cheaper!)
These wild alligator boots from Lucchese are absolutely amazing! Handmade, unique and an instant classic if you ask me. made from wild American alligator, no two are exactly alike. Each exotic skin cowboy boot is like a fingerprint and gives them an uniqueness that is truly special. The shaft is made from ranch hand calf skin and these boots feature a classic cord and stitch pattern and the pull straps feature gator overlays that compliment the gator vamps. The walking heel and round toe complete these beautiful boots and make them a stylish and comfortable dressy kind of cowboy boot you can wear with just about anything.
Lucchese has a distinct advantage over the competition and they tend to keep it that way. The Texas based boot (footwear) company has been making boots that have stood the test of time and been part of not only Texas culture, but American culture since it’s conception. They not only makes cowboy boots, by many accounts Lucchese makes the best cowboy boots!
Because of this perception, it has put Lucchese miles ahead of other brands that use the same styles, materials and craftsmanship techniques that they use. So how have they done it? How has Lucchese become the go to boot for cowboy boot enthusiasts around the world? Simple, a superior product and making sure that consumers know that.
As the industry trends have shown, most successful brands have ridden on its lore. They continuously promote a story or idea that entices buyers to think it better than the rest. To whit, it’s about selling the cachet more so than the actual item. But for Lucchese, the myth and the make go hand in hand. It has stuck to its guns and hasn’t cut corners to widen its profit margins. In a factory in El Paso, Texas, it employs hundreds of craftsman, many of which have worked there for decades and are skilled in a particular facet of the boot-making process.
Styles And Trend
When it comes to style, look no farther, Lucchese perfected it when it comes to cowboy boots. Men’s, women’s, and even kids boots, the Lucchese brothers have you covered. Casual, Classic, Dress, or even work boots, Lucchese has it all. Pointed tip to the more recently popular square toed boot, they make them all. You can also get these boots in everything from calf skin to the more exotic caiman, crocodile, kangaroo, and others which definitely ups the price. The great thing about Lucchese, they have been one of the most popular boot brands since their conception in 1883 and I really think they will be around for another 100 years. When it comes to style, it’s your money. If you drop a thousand dollars on a pair of boots, you better hope they get you some attention. No need to worry about that in this case. These boots are sure to get you noticed. You can regularly find a pair of these boots on some of the biggest musicians on the planet not to mention, athletes and other celebrities. Putting on a pair of Lucchese boots is like putting on no other! You definitely will be a life long wearer of these works of art! Check out these ultra luxurious Lucchese cowboyboots today.
From Italian craftsman that immigrated to Texas to give you the finest quality cowboy boot America has to offer!
Features – What You Get & Why
As I said earlier, work or play, Lucchese Cowboy Boots has you covered. Lucchese gives you many different styles of boots depending on where you will be wearing them. Let me go over some of the key features for you.
-You can compare Lucchese to these great Handmade Tony Lama Boots in our Tony Lama Boot Review
Why are they so comfortable? I have already went over how great these boots look and feel, but never went into detail about it. Looks wise, you know you can get your basic leather made boots and also choose from a number of exotic materials, but what makes these boots so comfortable you might ask? Well, for one thing, channeled leather insoles. These insoles form to your feet and allow them to breathe. You can also expect leather hell counters that form to your feet for optimum comfort with a great fit. Did I mention the full-size steel shanks that are secured by lemonwood pegs that give you the maximum arch support you can find in a pair of cowboy boots. Another great quality of these boots is a premium leather outsole that can be resoled multiple times that will give you years of wear and durability. What it basically comes down to is “Yeah, they are super comfy!”.

Lucchese did it again with these Pearl Bone Goat boots that are a steal for this price if you ask me! A contemporary style with no shortage of quality with a distressed finish in pearl bone (gray) smooth leather. I just love the snip toe these Lucchese boots sport and they fit nicely with your favorite pair of jeans
I wanted to review these boots because I really think most will absolutely fall in love with them and as I said, you just can’t beat the price for a pair of Lucchese.

A Stunning Pair Of Antique Chocolate Ostrich Boots, It’s Hand Stained Full-Quills Are Stunning!
Lucchese Men’s Antique Chocolate Full Quill & Smooth Ostrich Boots
- Comfort: Very Good
- Durability: Superb
- Style: Original Lucchese Classic
- Full Quill Ostrich Vamps
- Hand Stained
- Snip Toe
- Exclusive Design
- Seller: Pinto Ranch
- Made in El Paso, Texas
- Price: $1,295.00
A classic look for Lucchese is a just one of the reasons I wanted to review this boot. Not very often when you come across a pair of hand stained full quill ostrich boots. An iconic style of Lucchese, they have paid attention to every detail. The vamps are 100% full quill ostrich leather with ranch hand quarters. Ornate full quill underlays formed by filigree cording and stitching with French pull straps which truly elevate these boots to a Lucchese classic!
One thing to keep in mind, these Lucchese classics are made from natural materials (exotic leathers), so there might be a slightly different look to your boots than what you see in the picture here on the site. Trust me, it’s not drastic and it’s 100% nothing to worry about, I just thought you should know. That’s what gives cowboy boots their character and one of a kind status if you ask me.
Still Not Sure? Do Your Own Review Of Lucchese And Be Happy
I love these Lucchese boots more and more every time I wear them! They have been through allot in the past year and there still is no denying their amazing comfort and they still look great. I almost wish they would wear out so I could get a new pair. I definitely recommend a pair if you are still on the fence. From the first day you get them, you will fall in love with them. No matter if you spend $350 or $1,500, these boots will be a great addition to your wardrobe or a great pair of work boots. Yeah, yeah, I didn’t want to say wardrobe when talking about “work boots”. It just doesn’t sound right.

6 thoughts on “Lucchese Boot Review – Considered Cowboy Boot Excellence”
I will never buy from them again. About 18 months ago I went to get custom fitted for a new pair of boots that cost about $2,000. They were supposed to be here in 4 to 6 weeks. Six months later they showed up but had been completely wrong sized (2 sizes off). They said sorry and sent them back. Four months later they came back, but still were too long and now too narrow. They got sent back. They lost them. For another four months.
Then they sent them to the wrong store and lost them another month or so.
When they showed up again they told me they used the wrong size again and would have to be redone again. (This isn’t a slight mistake, they’re a size and a half off). Evidently the order was misentered. At this point I asked for my money back and they refused.
I will never do business with them again, and I would advise anyone thinking of getting a pair of custom boots to go anywhere else. They’re the worst boot company I’ve ever dealt with and now I have to go deal with court just to get my money back. And I still don’t have boots.
Who did you have a problem with? (What company)? I have never heard of anyone having a problem with Rios of Mercedes or Pinto Ranch.
Thanks for sharing though. Hope you get it figured out!
I just bought a pair of Lucchese Classics, 7 1/2 full quill ostrich in “Barn wood” from Pinto Ranch.
the color was a lighter than the picture showed but i like it and my wife loved it. Out of the box there was a rub on the outside of my right ankle that seems to be subsiding, I have only worn them twice so far, and I notice my Veari caiman boots do the same. so obviously it is my foot more than the boot. I forgot to redeem my 10% first time buyer discount, called Pinto Ranch and they immediately applied it. My problem is, i wear a 7 1/2 and if you go to the Lucchese site, they all start at 8.
I knew Pinto Ranch would make it right. They always do. Yes, the color can sometimes seem a little different and I believe it states that on each page where they sell the boots. Especially when it comes to exotics.
Worst shoe experience I have ever had. Bought a pair of custom-made Roper boots($1000.00, I think) in June of 2019. I had to return them twice for fit and still do not have the boot back that fit. should have bought a standard size boot. never again! and the poor retailer had to put up with me for over a year and a half!
Where was it from (the retailer). I guarantee you it wasn’t Pinto Ranch. If you look at most of their testimonials, it’s about how good their customer service is. Pinto Ranch Western Wear
