Lucchese Boot Company was established in San Antonio, Texas in 1883 by Sam Lucchese, Sr. (1868-1929), an Italian immigrant from Sicily, and his brothers.It was then known as Lucchese Bros. Their main customer was the United States Army stationed in Fort Sam Houston. When it came to making boots, Sam Lucchese had a practical approach, “stressing quality and cost efficiency.” He was interested in using the latest machines and techniques in order to increase the production of boots. In 1923, Sam Lucchese, Sr., fell ill, and his son Cosimo Lucchese took over. He incorporated the Lucchese Boot Company that same year, which had previously been known as Lucchese Bros.
In 1949, the company was commissioned boots for an advertising campaign for Acme Boots. In 1961, Sam Lucchese, Jr., took over, and by 1964, President Lyndon B. Johnson admitted to wearing Lucchese boots.
In 1970, Lucchese was sold to Blue Bell Corporation, parent company to Wrangler. By 1987, the company moved to El Paso, Texas, where it is still headquartered, from San Antonio, Texas. By 1998, Blue Bell Corporation sold Lucchese to Arena Brands, a Western Apparel conglomerate that was formerly known as Hat Brands, Inc.
In 2009, the Texas Legislature recognized the company's contribution to Texan culture by passing House Concurrent Resolution 226.
Today, Lucchese manufactures handmade leather boots; however, the company's retail stores have expanded into Western apparel, leather fine goods and jewelry. John Muse is the current Chairman of the company.
