Lucchese, the legendary Western brand renowned for its handmade bootmaking process, announced a partnership with Texas native and Grammy-winning country artist Kacey Musgraves. Together, they collaborated to introduce “Kacey for Lucchese,” a dynamic new collection of boots inspired by Musgraves’ life and experiences over the past couple of years, both musically and personally.
“I’ve had so much fun designing my boot line for Lucchese,” says Musgraves. “As a native Texan — and a boot wearer! — this brand means something special to me and this opportunity was a dream come true. Every detail on each boot in this line represents sentiments and pieces of me and my career. I hope y’all will wear them as proudly as I will!”
With shared Texas roots and a mutual dedication to artistry, authenticity, and craft, collaborating on a new Kasey-inspired boot line was a natural fit.
“Working with Kacey is like listening to her music – it’s motivating and fun,” said Doug Kindy, president of Lucchese. “The collection celebrates her adventurous and confident spirit, and unites it with the heart and soul of the Lucchese brand.”
The line includes a unique range of four different Western designs that capture Kacey’s exciting, youthful essence without straying from Lucchese’s traditional, time-honored craftsmanship. Much like the performer who inspired the boots and the bootmaker who crafted them, the “Kacey for Lucchese” collection makes a lasting statement that stands out.
Launching in time for the holidays, the collection features boots expected to retail from approximately $300 to $450. Product will be available at all Lucchese stores (Houston, San Antonio, Santa Fe, and Nashville), on Lucchese.com, and through additional retail distribution to be announced in the coming weeks. A special, kick-off pre-sale announcement is forthcoming.
