Since 1883, Texas-bred Lucchese builds handmade boots of unrivaled quality, fit, comfort and style. In virtually every step of our bootmaking process, we rely on human hands to complete time-honored tasks to perfection.
All of the crocodile skins used for a specific style must match in color because they cannot be dyed or tanned again once they arrive at the factory. Color cannot be added to crocodile leather because the skin is not porous as ostrich leather, meaning crocodile leather will absorb less and bootmakers must work with what they receive.
During the cutting process, bootmakers work around the scars and other imperfections of the leather. After inspecting the quality of the leather, the production team will then match skins to ensure that boots in a pair look alike.
Lucchese is famed for its high-quality skins, and two crocodilian skins are used to make one pair of boots.
To make one perfectly matched pair, bootmakers intently study each skin's unique markings, tile size and pattern. At times, up to 20 to 30 different skins are compared side-by-side before finding a close enough match, as each one is as individual as a fingerprint.
At Lucchese, perfection lies in such details.
