The last boots I bought were not Lucchese and they are just not as comfortable. I have a pair of Luccheses which are almost 20 years old and I still love them! If you can get to this place it used to be a great place to buy boots:

Reviews of Mistletoe Boots Grand Saline, 75140

They used to have a shop in Oak Cliff and I have some boots from there I bought in 1977 which I still like to wear - they are beaten up but they are old friends.

article in FTW paper about boots and hatters in FTW due to the Stock Show
frankly if you buy cheap boots you get what you pay for
my husband has pair of Tony Lama's that were ready made and more than 25 yrs old and leather is just as supple and they fit just as well--have been resoled maybe once in all that time--
built to last--
not what you can say about some of the newer mfg product
Lucchese still makes a great boot even if they are all not custom made

you have to go someplace where people know about fitting boots--totally different than fitting shoes (and not many stores have sales people who even know about that anymore)...

Fort Worth will probably have a larger selection of boots than Dallas. I would go to the stockyards there. I remember seeing several boot shops.

We used to go buy boots at their Oak Cliff store when I was a kid! I had a paid of Tony Lamas that I bought there and wore until they literally fell apart!

No one wears that stuff here...it's unfortunate you're buying into the stereotype. I was born and raised here and have never owned or worn a pair in my life, and you couldn't pay me enough to do so. Dallas is much more New York than New Mexico.

Come over to Fort Worth and you'll see people wearing cowboy boots every day, even with their business suits! You can even go to a FWSO concert at Bass Hall and see a few pair of boots!

Maybe that's why I love Fort Worth and am happy to live in Tarrant County...
