Cowboy boots: Anyone have preference for the longest lasting boot leather?

Cowboy boots: Anyone have preference for the longest lasting boot leather?

Started Dec 2, 2010 0 Replies

I have several pairs of Lucchese classics and one 1883 pair but I'm curious what others think. Anyone have any input on what's the longest lasting boot leather from their experience? Thanks y'all.Continue

"I now own 10 pairs of Lucchese boots (one of which is an 1883 model). They are a variety of leathers, ranging from Ostrich to Buffalo to Goat to Calf. I also own one pair of Justins and Boulet."

"Interesting, but I would only add that the pointy 5-toes became hugely popular in the 1960s due to rock star influence and all that. Before the 1870s in the US when pointy-toes were created, it was generally round and square that ruled the day.…"

"Actually Chuck, I think the basic classic cowboy boot has always been round toe or square toe, going back post-Civil War. The pointed toe-high heeled style of boots rose up in the 1960s. They've become pretty classic but not AS classic as the…"

"Never had elephant boots, but I've heard they are strong as hell and last a while with some care. Not sure, but the elephant leather may be illegal in some states."

"Interesting. Every one I know has their particularities with insoles and sizing. I've had my share of issues with sizing as well. When I first started wearing boots, I wanted a very snug fit so I ordered a full size smaller. This sort of worked…"

"Sounds cool. I have two Buffalo Lucchese Classic boots (water buffalo) and they are pretty resilient. I've never had croc or lizard. If I order a Lizard, I'd probably go for the 6 toe (round). Just curious, do you ever use insoles with…"

"Hey, Sounds like you've got an awesome collection of Lucchese's. I am big on Lucchese Classics myself. I have several buffalo, goat, and ostrich. Don't particularly like the 1883 series. Just curious, do you prefer roper heels or…"

"I've had BUFFALO hide (Lucchese's), they are pretty resilient but if you have really sweaty feet I'd probably avoid buffalo unless you buy a higher brand like Lucchese. That's because buffalo (water buffalo) isn't very…"

"Flat heels are okay, but Lucchese "walking heels" (1 and 3/8 heel) are great for walking too. At least I find they are. I have several pairs of lucchese. I found that the flat heel or "roper" or "fowler" heel generally…"
