Well, "legendary" in the sense that Uribe was a high-quality bespoke bootmaker for a long time. I'll look into finding you a little more about his boot related history.

LBD,

I could write a small book about those Uribe boots. You should hold on to them until you get a great price-- they are high quality San Antonio style boots built by a legendary maker. Based on the "Kango tobac" color of full-quill ostrich and the heel detail, I would say those boots were made in the 1980's-1990's.

CBN and Bama,

Genaro Hector Uribe may have worked at Lucchese, if so it would have been before WWII. Lucchese had such a great effect on other San Antonio boot makers stylistically as they had the largest army contract to outfit the cavalry with boots (Fort Sam Houston). Uribe and several other bootmakers made boots for the army too, but more with individual soldiers. Genaro came from a long line of family member bootmakers going back to the mid-1850's in Mexico City-- I confirmed that information reasonably well by looking at boot related photos and some receipts from near that time period. Uribe stated to me that his part of the Uribe family moved to San Antonio in the 1890's.

Not Lucchese (I worked for San Antonio Lucchese). Those are Uribe Boots, made by Genaro Uribe, he was from a long-line of family bespoke bootmakers. He was last at 1255 Loop 410 SW in San Antonio, where I talked to him in 2001 (he was 80 years-old then).

TLBD, the tongue and the loop stitch at the at the top of the tongue look like a Lucchese pattern but w/o labeling I doubt it. The signature looked like Uribe to me, a pretty common Latin last name. Can't remember where but seems I read about a bootmaker Hector Uribe from the El Paso area at one time. Just can't be certain. CBBN may be able to help. Good looking boots.
