Lucchese is better known, but this place -- established in 1915 -- uses as many esoteric leathers and creates fancier footwear designs. You can get anything you like bespoke if you're willing to wait a while -- possibly in line behind Reba McEntire and Tommy Lee Jones, who have had boots handcrafted here. Purchase some just so you can tell your friends back home, "Oh, Lucchese is so commercial. Little's is still the real thing."
