If you're in the market for a new pair of boots, there are tips to making sure your investment is worthwhile.

Leather soled cowboy boots can cost thousands of dollars, but you don't have to bust your budget to get a nice pair.

Brands like Lucchese are known for some of the most unique one-of-a-kind styles that are all handmade. If money is no object, you can pick up a pair of the most expensive boots in the Lucchese store. At $12,995 they are beautiful, but definitely not a Stretch Your Dollar.

If you have been eyeing a pair of Lucchese, but you don't have thousands to spend, you can find a pair online for under $300. On the Lucchese website, they sell cheaper boots that they do not carry in stores. Also, Zappos and Shepplers sell the boots for less than the retail shop.

If the Lucchese look is what you want, but you still can't afford the online outlets, try visiting the La Estrella flea market in Houston. It is loaded with quality Western wear handmade in Mexico.

Boots with similar designs to Luccheses are at the flea market for $150 to $350.

If you make the investment, it is best to get a heel and sole protector so they do not wear out quickly.
