I love cowboy boots, and especially Luccheses. Unfortunately, I don't currently own a pair.
The tricks, as I see them, in pulling off a pair of cowboy boots if you're not a cowboy are these:
1. Buy quality. A good pair of boots will be expensive.
2. Don't be ostentatious: Stick to a high-quality, smooth-grained leather in a basic color. Calfskin, goatskin, and--believe it or not--kangaroo are all good choices. And make sure they fit properly---nothing looks more ridiculous than someone wearing a pair of boots with the tops spilling over the soles. No toe caps, chains, etc.. Stick to the medium heel, and a medium-round toe.
3. Pick out some jeans that fit just right on you, and over the boots. This is trickier than buying the boots themselves, at least to me.
If you take the time, and spend the money on the right pair, and take care of them, you can have yourself a great looking pair of boots that will look good and last a lifetime.
