Lucchese Boot Company

Storied San Antonio roots surround this original boot maker. Since 1883, Lucchese Bootmaker has been a high-end retailer selling Western boots for men and women alike, as well other leather shoes and accessories. Now located inside the Alamo Quarry Market, Lucchese is a must-visit location for anyone looking to complete their San Antonio trip with some authentic Texas style.

History of the Boot Maker

In 1883, Sam Lucchese Sr. established Lucchese Boot Company in San Antonio. Originally an Italian immigrant from Sicily, Lucchese Sr. and his brothers began the company under the name "Lucchese Bros." Their primary customer was the United States Army stationed in Fort Sam Houston in Texas.

The boot-making process was always of utmost importance to Sam Lucchese, whether that meant investing in new technology or developing new techniques to better the production of boots. Lucchese boots appeared in an advertising campaign for Acme Boots in 1949 and have been worn by notable people such as President Lyndon B. Johnson, John Wayne, Bing Crosby, James Garner, Andrew Sweet, and Zsa Zsa Gabor.

Boot Styles

Crafted from smooth leather, suede/stonewashed leather, and exotic leather, western boots are the cornerstone of Lucchese's brand. Still, they have gone beyond the traditional cowboy style to include booties, tall boots, Erin Wasson-style boots, Horseman boots, Roper boots, and Contemporary boots.

Each boot style sticks to the tenants of quality, flair, and functionality when it comes to craftsmanship and wearability. Each boot packs a little bit of history into each piece of leather and gives an authentic Texan look to those who wear them.
