Anteater Lucchese Cowboy Boots. Rare and Beautiful! These are very, very rare anteater size 10 1/2 D skins and you will be hard pressed to find another pair. No other boot fits the human foot like a Lucchese boot, thanks to Lucchese's ordinal design, which remains the only one of its kind in bootmaking today. And because of a continuing commitment to this rare art, the making of a Lucchese exotic boot takes time. From the careful selection and cutting of the finest grade of leathers, to the hand-driven lemon wood pegs and meticulous finishing of a boot, each step is considered critical to the finished produce. Lucchese boot designs may demand more money, time and skill, but when you slip your foot into a Lucchese boot, you'll know why Lucchese insist on only the finest.
This is an exceptional pair of exotic anteater skins.
