Hunter/Equitation Rider and Stanbridge Associate
In a sport where elegance meets precision and grit, equestrians require riding gear that meets and exceeds such characteristics in a new age of competition. While helmets remain the main priority for safety, boots should not be so easily dismayed as the majority of our sport realize the ability to control and work with our legs.
Franco Tucci: The visionary
TucciTime has risen to the top of equestrian competition footwear due to Franco Tucci’s standards, using only the finest materials and detailed craftsmanship to execute the perfect boot tailored and specialized to every equestrian's needs. Tucci boots are an innovative piece of artwork compared to mass produced boots of the sport. With the use of modern minds of Franco Tucci and old fashioned precise craftsmanship, a boot has finally met the needs of the modern competitor.
“The collection TucciTime has been conceived to match his idea of the ultimate luxury experience, to Time. It’s freedom, simplicity, functional comfort and ageless beauty, it’s your time to devote to those moments that make you feel alive, savor every emotion. For this we manufacture unique, personal items with their own story and soul, which fits you like your favorite thing.”~Franco Tucci
From Farm to Finish:
All the calf hides for Tucci boots are preselected from certified farms in Italy and France. Once selected through a long process, the leather is treated to enhance the beauty and suppleness for function and luxury. The leather is finally ready to be crafted by hand into different styles and parts of boots, giving it a custom like fit and unique character with a story and soul. The long process from from to ride separates Tucci from the average boot that just ‘gets the job done’. Tucci gets the job done while maintaining functional comfort, luxury, and ageless beauty.
Why I Ride Tucci:
I have been riding for 11+ years now, competing in the Hunter/Jumper world so naturally I have gone through more boots than I can count. Out of all the boot brands I have ridden in, never before have I seen such effort and detail be placed into a pair of tall boots like I have with my Tuccis. The boots are timeless beauties, extremely comfortable, and most of all they last. Not many brands today take the time and effort to make products by hand which take away from the overall quality of the product. If I am going to spend the money on a pair of tall boots, I want them to last. A machine does not care whether the boots last, but a skilled artisan hand crafting each boot will. I ride Tucci because I know that the hard workers behind the Tucci brand care about the boot and put forth the time and effort so I don't have to worry about my boots and I can focus on my ride.
