The opening builds on Lucchese’s presence in Colorado with its Denver location opening on December 3, 2021 and a pop-up at Steamboat at the Grand Hotel during MusicFest in January of this year.
“With its vast open spaces, expansive ranches and rich Western history, Colorado is a natural fit for Lucchese,” a Lucchese spokesperson said in a recent press release. “Telluride is rich with Lucchese fans, and we thought it was the perfect place to open our first branch in a mountain town. We look forward to being able to serve our customers, locals and travelers, in this new store. »
The Telluride store celebrates Lucchese’s longstanding heritage as custodians of Western culture and way of life. Each Lucchese store features a similar environment and Western motif using warm tones and natural elements such as wood and leather. Products will be showcased throughout the store in Lucchese’s bespoke rustic hickory display cases and the walls will be covered in photos showcasing the shoemaker’s 139-year history.
Lucchese’s Telluride customers can create a custom boot with an elaborate set of handmade El Paso boot options and hand dyed leathers. They can choose anything from color to style of boot to type of leather used. These personalized boots are especially popular for weddings, where bridal parties add the special date to their boot, adding western flair to the big day and pieces that will become family heirlooms.
The Telluride store will feature the familiar made-in-Texas feel of other Lucchese stores, with some classic Colorado-centric design motifs, such as antlers, deer hides, and western motifs exclusive to Telluride and Denver. A custom-made juniper bench by local artist David Guffey will provide guests with a place to take off their ski boots and put on their Lucchese boots. The store will offer men’s and women’s boots, clothing, travel bags, candles, home accessories, wallets, belts and more.
Based in Texas, Lucchese is a legendary shoemaker and an iconic brand of the American West. Applying the same principles and techniques of craftsmanship since 1883, Lucca artisans use only the finest leathers, pre-eminent materials and a proprietary twist cone to construct boots of superior quality, fit, comfort and of unparalleled style.
The brand began when Salvatore Lucchese immigrated to the United States of America in 1883. He is said to have arrived in Galveston, Texas by ship, which sailed from Palermo, Italy. Salvatore Lucchese arrived with his brother Joseph Lucchese.
Salvatore and Joseph Lucchese then moved to San Antonio, Texas to establish a boot-making workshop at Fort Sam Houston, a United States Cavalry school in San Antonio.
From these humble beginnings, the brand has grown to become known for its quality and durability. Bing Crosby, Jimmy Dean, and former President Lyndon B. Johnson even owned a pair of Lucchese boots. In 2011, the company was named the Dallas Cowboys Official Cheerleading Shoe.
