These boots are incredibly nice! The Alligator is extremely soft. The antique brown color makes the boot look worn in and beautiful. Lucchese is my favorite maker. The Giant Alligator Rio boots are made in U.S.A. at their factory in El Paso, Texas. I love them! What makes me even happier is the price I was able to get them for at Zappos.

Beautiful authentic looking boots. Fit can be hard based on one pair, handmade boots have inconsistencies, these feel narrow yet long, but I know they will break in. However, don't know if ordering half size smaller in the wide would work. Never ordered a wide before, but, maybe.

Absolutely beautiful boots.

I ordered these and received them really fast (next day). I was impressed with the service. They were too big and so I had to return them. I generally wear an 8.0 - 8.5. I ordered the 8.5. These felt like a size 9. They were way too big for me.

My first Lucchese boots and I love them! I wear a 6 in regular shoes but wear a 6.5 or 7 in boots. I purchased the 6.5 and it fits perfectly. They are comfortable right out of the box. I have a very high arch and I was able to get these boots on my feet with no problem. They are snug and not a lot of heel slipage. They will only get better with use. I love the light tan color and distressed look. It’s going to look great with dresses and jean skirts. A very cool boot. They are expensive but you are paying for top quality craftsmanship and comfort. These boots will last a lifetime!

Fantastic boots, great fit. I went half size larger than my usual shoes, but they are perfect. Zappos service is the best.

I wear size 10 with a high arch and the size 10 fit pefectly. Beautiful leather, exactly as pictured. These booties get lots of compliments. They are on the "heavy" side, I think it's the heel.
Alison from San Diego on February 09, 2019
Very, very cute boot! However, there is something weird with the arch, almost as it the pattern was cut wrong. I'm returning because the boot is uncomfortable - arch too high and back too far.

I love these boots...although it took me three tries to get the right size. I wear an 11 in normal shoes, and 10 mediums in boots I have from both Justin and Ariat. I first ordered a 10 wide in these, since mediums were not in stock. They were too short. I ordered a 10.5 wide and 10.5 medium next. The 10.5 wide fit well, while the medium width was way too tight. I have never worn a wide in any shoe or boot in my life, so I would venture to say these run narrow. A size 11 medium probably would have fit as well as the 10.5 wide, but I stuck with the 10.5 wide since I already had them in hand and did not want to try another pair. Other than having to try the various sizes, which Zappos makes pretty stress free, I love everything about this pair of boots.

Lucchese never disappoints, probably the best pair of boots I’ve bought. Sizes run smaller than your normal shoe size. For example I wear a 9 in men’s shoes but an 8D in Lucchese boots.

Gorgeous boots - truly a show-stopper! Amazing details and craftsmanship. Fit TTS.

Well, I came back for my second pair of Lucchese boots. I had purchased "Harley" and they felt so good after wearing and walking for 8 hours I came back to my favorite shoe store (Zappos, of course) only to find that the distressed white was sold out in my size 8. But Yea!!, in just a few days they were listed as available again. I did order an additional pair a 1/2 size larger just to be on the safe side since they are cut lower on the ankle. But the 8.5 just broke wrong on my foot, putting a crease where it shouldn't be. Went back to the 8 and couldn't be happier. These are gorgeous boots and will be perfect in the summer too with shorts and skirts.

I'm in heaven with these boots. WAAAY more money than I ever thought I'd pay but after limiting myself to no more than $150 and finding nothing that felt comfortable (very high insteps and arches) I decided to take the plunge. Boy am I glad I did. These handmade boots are first quality and after close examination, I am convinced they will last a very long time. Oh, and did I mention comfort? They surpassed anything I have tried in the past - and I live in Nashville TN, boot capital of the western hemisphere... Boots sold on every corner (slight exaggeration!) But I digress - if you can wrap your head around spending a bit more, you will not find a more beautiful, better fitting boot. I ordered the flowered version in my regular size 8 and it's perfection. Did I mention I love these boots? I hope you will too.

Drop dead gorgeous boots! However, they are slim fitting: slim though the calves and narrow in the foot. I have wide feet with bunions, so I'm still wearing them around the house deciding if they will work or not. I really want them to work, but at this price, I need to be sure. The handwork detail on the boots is amazing. These are certainly a statement piece! If you've been looking at them, give them a try!!
Lalalisa from Albuquerque on January 21, 2019
Hands-down the highest quality pair of boots I’ve ever owned. Don’t hesitate to buy these. I’m so glad that I did. Just beautifully made. Don’t know what else to say!
Emily from Austin on January 18, 2019
These boots are beautiful, however they are not the color as shown. I would call them antique gold, not bronze. I was looking for the more copper colored boots as shown, I may be returning them.
Zappos Reviewer on January 17, 2019
Awesome boots...need some stretching to get into them but after that, they are the best!
Zappos Reviewer on January 13, 2019
Cute boot, but the pair I received had obviously been worn and returned. Tags cut, toes scuffed, the leather foot bed liner has peeled up in one boot and then turned under on itself, making a weird lump. I can only imagine that happened because of someone's foot friction. I'll keep them because they're sold out in my size and they're adorable, but I'm annoyed to pay 3 hundo, full price, for a luxury boot and get somebody's obvious return. Zappos needs an option to choose goods that have been returned less than pristine, offered at a discount. I would shop that all day long and be thrilled to get a lightly scuffed pair with cut tags and a sad box for a little less cash.Also I ordered a half size down from my normal because I plan to wear them without socks, and am pleased. They're just right, anticipate being able to stand or walk in them for hours.

Quills are actually coming off! My forth pair of Lucchese boots - I have two other ostrich and one croc that still look as good as the day I purchased. I put these on immediately as my other 3 pair fit perfectly - wore them for 30 minutes and noticed the QUILLS LITERALLY COMING OFF with raw undyed leather exposed underneath. Lucchese stated they would "repair" my brand new boots after I go to the trouble of shipping them back.

I purchased a size 7 in these boots which is my usual shoe size. The boots were snug at my tgevwidest part of my feet which is expected. My heel does lift up when walking as well. I ended up calling a Lucchese store in Texas for advice on the fit since this is my first pair of cowboy style boots. We determined that the fit was good and I would risk blisters and a too tight fit in the foot if I went down a size. The boot is very high quality, soft leather and construction. I am so impressed! They are also comfortable to walk in. I purchased the distressed white and it is a surprisingly versatile color. Because of the variations in the distressing it goes well with greys, browns, black, to name a few. I love the short side profile of the boot which is flattering on a petite person.

Luchesse boots are simply the best right out of the box. I wore them all day without interruption and they’re super comfortable and beautiful. The material is butter soft and incredibly well made. So worth the money.
Zappos Reviewer on December 29, 2018
The quality of the materials is outstanding.
Maria from Florida on December 28, 2018
Love, love, love these boots!! Super comfortable from the onset and don't make the annoying clacking noise when I walk. I have worn them walking around the city all day long with no issues. These have made me a Lucchese fan and I can't wait to buy my next pair!!
