    Lucchese boots generally run true to size, but don’t be surprised if your western boot’s size is slightly smaller than your dress shoe size due to its construction. The best way to find your fit is to confirm your foot size with a boot expert. You can also consult the charts below.

    TIP

    Lucchese boots typically fit about one half-size smaller than everyday dress shoes. If the boot has a padded foot bed, then the boot will fit to size. It’s a good idea to confirm your size with a shoe or boot expert every few years, as the size and shape of your feet can change over time.

    01 Toes rest comfortably in the ball

    02 The ball of your foot should be the widest part of the boot

    03 Tightest around the middle of the foot or crown

    04 A properly fitting boot should feel like a firm handshake across the instep

    05 There will be a slight slip in the heel

    FOOT GOING IN

    FOOT IN

    01 Put both fingers through the pull straps and insert your foot into the boot.

    02 Keeping the heel on the ground, use your body weight to get your foot into the boot. *Note: You will feel resistance as you try to pull the boot on.

    03 As your foot sinks into the boot, listen for the audible “thump”.

    04 Walk around and feel the fit of the boot.

    05 What you’ll feel: Toes should be comfortable, and the snuggest section will be across the top of the foot. * Note: Notice the slight slip in the heel.

    COMMON FIT PROBLEMS

    If the boot feels too tight, go for a wider width. If the boot feels too loose, try a smaller size.

  • Wearing in Your Boots
    Wearing in Your Boots

    Once the boot fits, use these tips to help wear them in.

    CONDITION

    Coat your new boots with natural leather conditioner.

    WEAR

    For the first 6-8 ourings, try for at least 2-3 hours of wear. Continued wear allows your body heat and moisture to permeate the boots, softening the leather. Over time, Lucchese’s leather heel, insole and outsole conform to the shape of your foot, providing a more flexible and comfortable fit.

    WAIT

    Be patient - the more you wear your new boots, the better.

    NOTE ABOUT EXOTICS:

    Soft leathers, such as goat or cowhide, have more elasticity than exotic leathers. Most exotics, such as alligator or ostrich, should be fitted with little to no additional stretching required.

Lucchese Craftsmanship

Classic Construction

Detail Construction

We build our boots entirely by hand, using only top-quality materials and skilled craftsmanship from the inside out. To start, we source premium leathers — even to line our boots — and we construct the boot’s interior with a hung vamp. This old-world technique allows the leather in the front of the boot to mold to the foot easily, for greater comfort and support. To secure a boot’s upper and insole together, we use a channel technique. A method used with hand-sewn bespoke shoes, creating a channel in the leather insole hides the stitches for a perfectly smooth footbed. Also on the inside: a leather heel counter, which reinforces the heel cup. We also use premium leathers on the outside, detailing quarters with exquisite hand-stitched designs, carefully crafted inlays, hand-cording, and more. A premium leather stacked heel and a natural leather sole are the foundation of our boots. Outsole and insole are held together by a three-quarter welt and lemonwood pegs. A typical boot has about 45 pegs, each carefully hammered by hand into a small hole. Lemonwood is more malleable than metal, expanding and contracting at an almost identical rate as leather.

cliff

Intricate Design

Intricate design work, such as a detailed quarter pattern is always done by hand.

Lemonwood Pegs

Genuine lemonwood pegs secure the boot’s steel shank to the sole.

Stacked Heel

Layers of real natural leather create a walkable stacked heel.
