The Last Word

Lucchese Culture + Inspiration

Introducing Sheridan: A visual tribute
The making of a boot, from start to finish
10.23.2013

The soul of the Lucchese lies in the skill and finesse of its artisans. From start to finish, the human hand touches each pair of boots over three hundred times, requiring at least 18 days to complete.

As the rest of the country turned to machines for producing goods, the Lucchese tradition of handmade artisan products has withstood the test of time.

Composed over the course of construction of one boot, Sheridan, this film is a visual poem, paying tribute to the skilled men and women whose approach to their craft is both inspiring and beautiful.
