Anderson Bean a division of Rios of Mercedes aims to create a quality boot, handmade boot, with all leather construction from the highest quality materials possible. Oh all at an affordable price! You will not find any synthetic hides or man-made leather in their boots, ever. Their hides are cut with an attention to detail and placement on the hide to allow each piece to naturally expand and contract with heat and moisture, just as nature designed. From the ground up, their boots are built with the finest and most durable materials that nature can supply. Each pair is lined with premium cowhide and has leather heel counters and leather insoles. The pegs will actually expand and contract with the leather as it changes temperature and moisture content so that they do not fall out or rust like a nail. All in one affordable package for a handmade Texas Cowboy Boot!
