Big Tex got a brand-new pair of custom Lucchese boots for the 2018 State Fair of Texas, and now he just can’t get enough! He wants to sport a fresh, new design next year, too.

This year’s boots were designed and constructed by a team of Lucchese bootmakers in El Paso, TX, but now Big Tex wants to give you a chance to design his boots. The 2019 Big Tex Boot Design Contest, presented by Lucchese Bootmaker, gives Fair fans the chance to design the biggest, best-known pair of boots in the Lone Star State.

Don’t miss your chance to get creative and submit a design. All you need to do is draw, paint or illustrate your design on the templates provided at and submit them with an entry form to the State Fair of Texas. A panel of judges will choose 10 finalist designs, then the top design will be voted on from Feb. 18 – 28, 2019. The winning design will be chosen by March 4, 2019. Who knows? It could be yours. The contest opens Nov. 1 and the deadline is Jan. 31, 2019, so get to designing! — Karaissa Condoianis
