The Texas-based boot company started making fashion shoes and purses this year in addition to their famous boots. DALLAS (AP) The 131-year-old Texas boot-maker Lucchese is kicking up its heels literally. This year, Lucchese began expanding its high-end offerings, starting with a fashion shoe line that includes everything from sleek sling-backs to burnished oxfords. “It really is all about matching the desires and needs of our customer base,” said William Zeitz , who helped shepherd the company though the change as executive vice president and creative director. “They lead very active, vibrant lives and boots are fine but they wanted more from Lucchese.” The idea for the expansion came after longtime customers said they would be interested in offerings of more than just boots, said Zeitz, who joined Lucchese in spring 2012 after stints at Nike and Cole Haan . With everything from brand strategy to product design in place, he left the vice president and creative director post this fall but remains a marketing consultant for the company. El Paso-based Lucchese launched its fashion footwear collection for men and women in the spring, with advertisements running in fashion magazines including Vogue, Elle and Harper’s Bazaar .

Flight Passenger’s Most Troublesome Kind Fox4kc.com

The study, conducted by global research firm GfK, asked 1,000 Americans to rank the most annoying on-board behaviors of fellow passengers. Rear seat-kickers pushed last years top offenders, the inattentive parents, into second place, followed by the aromatic passenger, the audio-insensitive passenger, the boozer and the chatty Cathy. Expedias Airplane Etiquette Study is a lighthearted reminder that few places require more attention to etiquette than the inside of an airplane, said John Morrey, Expedias vice president and general manager, in a statement. Youre in a tight space at 30,000 feet with hundreds of fellow travelers, so even the small things helping your neighbor stow a bag or switching seats to put a mom next to her child can make a huge difference. And someone might post pictures or video of your offending behavior online.
