A clear obsession
So, yeah, I have more than a few pairs of boots. It’s not quite an obsession, but I’ve more pairs than most people. And, I certainly have more pairs than I need. I can’t help it. If I see a great pair and BOOM; they’re mine. I see someone wearing a great pair and BOOM; I’m on the hunt till I find them. It’s a borderline obsession, but let’s not split hairs.
Lucchese is my choice, hands down
I own expensive pairs and cheap pairs. Custom pairs and “stock” pairs. Pairs from the USA as well as Mexico. I have pairs that were made just for me. And here’s the kicker (pardon the pun); the most comfortable pair I own is an off-the-rack pair of Lucchese’s I bought 12 years ago at a small shop in Vail, CO. And I have to say; this pair of Lucchese boots is the most comfortable, by far. It’s the pair I can wear all day, and again the next day. And again the day after that. It’s the pair I wear to Market. It’s the pair I pack for vacation. It’s the go to pair that I put on when I want something comfortable. And, at this point I absolutely love the way they look; a bit battered, a little worn.
