The Making of Lucchese Boots.
Every pair of Lucchese boots is hand-inspected, not once, but twice. And although they skive their leather seams by machine, they repeat the process a second time by hand. In virtually every one of their procedures, they rely on human hands to complete the task to near-perfection. Find your new pair of Lucchese Boots At Stages West, Pigeon Forge TN.. www.stageswest.com
Bob Boyce explains the process of making custom cowboy boots.
http://www.fmlight.com What is the difference between a hand made boot, and a boot made by a machine? Learn the difference from Darel Kesner with Dan Post, and F.M. Light’s Del Lockhart.
A hand made boot is made completely of leather. This includes a leather outer, interior, stacked heel, sole and heel counter. The shank of the boot is held in place by pegs – this keeps it together.
A machine made boot has only a few leather components, and this is the outer foot of the boot. The upper is composed of a man-made material, as is the inside, which is designed to wick away moisture.
What are the pros and cons?
A hand-made boot will last you forever. Whether you’re a cowboy out in the heat and grime, or a businessman who likes western wear, this boot will wear well and will conform to your foot. Because of this durability, the price is higher.
A machine made boot offers the comfort and look of a cowboy boot, but will not last as long. Thus, the price is lower.
