This project needs to be revived

While half-heartedly perusing the new items at the Lucchese site, I stumbled across these gems.


In 1949, the Lucchese Boot Company was commissioned to build a collection of boots-50 pairs of boots, each pair “depicting” a state- for a national advertising campaign. Each boot features unique and exact colors for the states flag, capital, bird, flower and state commodity. I don’t know about you guys, but I am head over heels in love with both this crazy idea and the resulting boots.



The boots I found only represented about a dozen or so states. Thus, in the interests of all things artistic and patriotic, I think someone should really consider taking on the completion of this admirable endeavor. 50 boots, 50 states. Seriously, we have deprived Connecticut of this honor for far too long.



Go take a Look!
