Low Heel, Rounded Toe
The low, squared-off heel and rounded toe set ropers apart from traditional Western boots. The heel makes it easy to walk a distance, and the toe mimics that of a dress shoe. Together, they make the roper a good alternative to loafers or oxfords for workdays and casual events.
Reinforced Pull Straps
Leather pull straps on the sides of the shafts make it easy to get the boots on. Lucchese pull straps are always securely reinforced and often embellished with decorative hand-stitching or a leather overlay. Some roper styles have our iconic Kennedy pull straps.
The roper shaft is shorter than a traditional Western boot. It rises above the ankle but not quite to midcalf, and it is comfortable for all-day wear. All of our ropers are embellished with chain stitching along the collars of the quarters.
Lucchese uses only the finest leathers from around the world, from ranch hand cowhide to Mad Dog Goat, Florence buffalo to Italian suede. We polish and burnish our boots by hand, giving every pair a unique look that grows even more beautiful with age.
