Anderson Bean Tan Smooth Hippo - Brass 13" Top Cowboy Boot. This boot features a broad square toe, smooth hippo construction, double stitch welt, lemon wood pegs, and a walking heel. For over 150 years Anderson Bean has been faithful to quality boot making. Anderson Bean is one of the last boot makers around to use channeled welt construction in the leather insole, resulting in a low profile. Other unique construction features are steel shanks for arch support and lemon wood pegs in the arch area. Unlike a nail, wooden pegs enable the sole of the boot to adjust naturally to changes in temperature and moisture.
