BOOT OF THE DAY | #125 | LIFE TIME GEAR’S EXOTIC LUCCHESE CAIMAN COWBOY BOOT

beside my passion to workboots i am a great fan of COWBOY & WESTERN BOOTS. there are 2 favorite brands: LUCCHESE and RIOS OF MERCEDES. there is just one other option for me: CUSTOM MADE western boots; i own 3 pairs of those, all handmade in TEXAS. the one below is a LUCCHESE HORNED BACK CAIMAN BOOT style #G9252. some facts: from the LUCCHESE CLASSICS line, mens cigar (brown) caiman tail with brown buffalo calf top, 3 colored leaf stitch pattern, handmade, full leather heel counter, cushioned insole for comfort, 1 3/4″ heel, 12 1/2″ shaft, 15″ circumference plus double leather sole and walking heels. after a bike accident in 2007 when i crashed my left femoral bone i did not often wear cowboy boots. but i think it’s time to do it again. what a wonderful boot. this one has to put out on the streets not to the cupboard. pics | LTG






LIFE TIME GEAR | PRIVATE FAVORITES XIII “WESTERN BOOTS“

i have two favorite western boot brands: LUCCHESE & RIOS OF MERCEDES. my favorite boot
is a style 7 toe boot by LUCCHESE from their CLASSICS COLLECTION, style #L1569 oiled calf boots
in chocolate and a color named buck. it is the “RIO BRAVO” style, because JOHN WAYNE wore
these boots in this film … but not only in this film, JOHN was a great LUCCHESE boot fan. this is
really a perfect old school boot. i put a double leather sole on both and wear them 1/2 size bigger
so that the toes got up. those boots are the most comfortable ones i own. pics | Life Time Gear | others
