For over 150 years, Anderson Bean Boots have been a leader in quality boot making. Anderson Bean is one of the last cowboy 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. Anderson Bean Cowboy Boots are have a distinctive and comfortable fit, whether working behind a desk or on the back of a horse.
