"I've always felt like an outsider, and I still feel that way,” musician Eric Church says. "That feeling is something that you never lose, no matter how much acceptance you get. When you've been burned enough, you carry that feeling with you, and it becomes a part of you. That chip on your shoulder becomes a source of strength, and it drives you to push forward."
Not only is this distinct, determined spirit one Church will take with him on The Outsiders World Tour from September 11th to December 13th, but it’s what inspired him to design a collection of Lucchese boots available for purchase exclusively on that tour.
To create "These Boots by Eric Church," Church visited bootmakers and designers at the Lucchese factory in El Paso and flexed his creative muscles alongside the best in the bootmaking industry. Together, they devised three women’s styles and three men’s styles fit for the lover of outlaw country, replete with interesting studding, exotic skins and hardy variations of the matlese cross — all elements of style personally worn by Church himself.
To get a behind the scenes look at the production process, view the video of Church in the Lucchese factory and stay tuned for photos of the full release. Lastly, don’t forget to pick up a VIP ticket for his stop in your town, as the VIP lounge will be the only place to get your hands on this award-winning artist's piece of Lucchese history.
“My boots write the stories that sing the songs of my life. They've led me down so many different roads,” says Church. “ I hope your boots take you on your own incredible journey.”
