Now That's A Boot

 
The Virginia boot.

A BIT OF HISTORY . . . 
 
"It was 1880 when Sam Lucchese Sr. and his brothers came to America. Although he was just 17 years old, the young Lucchese had a vision for a career in bootmaking, and just three years later, the Lucchese Boot Company was established in San Antonio, Texas . . .
In 1949 Acme Boot Company commissioned Lucchese Boot Company to build the collection for an advertising campaign. It took Lucchese an amazingly short four years to build the entire collection. Each boot features unique and exact colors for the states flag, capital, bird, flower and state commodity."

I own two pairs of Lucchese boots. They are without doubt the best off the shelf boots I've owned. They fit better than one pair of custom boots I've owned.

Funny thing: in Alabama Lucchese boots are actually not all that expensive. They are not cheap, but they are not out of line with other well made brands. When I go back home to Arkansas or visit Texas the same pair of boots will cost twice as much.

No doubt, though these are just a tad flamboyant for my taste.
