FrontRunners: Cowboy to City Slicker

An El Paso, Texas, company that has been making exceptional cowboy boots for 130 years has slipped into shoes for city slickers and released the Lucchese footwear collection (www.lucchese.com). The line includes the oxford, the Chelsea boot, and other classics, as well as the Massimo boot shown here. It is a calfskin style inspired by the brand’s early days as a supplier of officer boots for the U.S. Cavalry. Many of the shoes in the new collection are made by hand in El Paso and near Florence, Italy, and include exotic skins. Prices range from $625 to $4,250.
