A s the westerncore wave rolls onward, a new brand is throwing its hat in the luxury cowboy boot ring. Of course, in a category defined by stalwarts such as Lucchese and Tony Lama, a boot label has to be notable to stand out. Partlow, co-founded by sisters Kasey Lemkin and Lawren Sample, is up to the challenge.
