Butter my biscuits y’all (and add some honey), I cannot begin to tell you how excited I am to bring you this review! Cowboys, ranches, and the American west have been in my soul since I was a girl, despite having spent much of my childhood “up north”. My bedroom had a western motif, I thought the Stetson man was so handsome (ha,ha) and I couldn’t wait to head south for college. One of the first purchases I made before heading off to A&M was a pair of maroon cowboy boots complete with pointed toe. They sure came in handy with my favorite extracurricular activity dancing the two step! I was made fun of a bit because I wasn’t wearing the rounded toe boots like alot of my pals, but I didn’t care. Funny thing is that nowadays pointed toes are in fashion!
Speaking of fashion western wear is HOT for women, men and children. In recent years cowboy boots have entered the scene as more than just utilitarian footwear, now gracing wedding ensembles and formal wear! If Ricky and I were able to do it all again, I would wear a pair under my wedding dress maybe there is still hope if we someday renew our vows. Children are absolutely precious in boots with tutus or denim, and many a photographer are capturing images with this funky southern vibe.So, on to my review, wear do you find amazingly wonderful cowboy boots these days? Anderson Bean of course! My daughters and I were the fortunate recipients of the sweet yet sassy Macie Bean line by Anderson Bean Boots. Flowers, butterflies, crosses and even a bit of leopard print grace the various styles of these well made boots. Maddy and I were given the “I never promised you a Rose Garden” snip toe style and Sydney scoots around in her “Go Out” style.
Macie Beans boots have all the look of a cool fashion boot and since they are made by Anderson Bean you know you can depend on the fact they are made the right way, with care put into every detail. Macie Bean boots feature a genuine leather vamp, top, lining, side seam, and sole welt, as well as a premium leather outsole and a thin cushioned insole. With new styles being added all the time, Macie Bean boots are sure to make you stand out in a crowd.At Anderson Bean Boots we value the traditions of Texas bootmaking, and we build our boots to offer all the comfort and style of a traditional handmade boot at a price most people can afford. Anderson Bean was created by the owners of Rios of Mercedes Handmade Boots to make available a high quality, all leather western boot that would fall in the medium price range. Anderson BeanAs soon as I slipped these beauties on I could tell they were quality, and would continue to perfect with age. They felt like they had been made especially for my feet! Of course, I should have known because Anderson Bean prides themselves on using over 100 years worth of boot crafting knowledge.
They use leather everywhere except the steel shank and wooden pegs used for the arch area support. My favorite part of my new boots though are the embroidered flowers, so girly and totally me! Both my girls adore their boots and look so precious when they wear them with a dress, or blinged out western jeans. Strangers have stopped us just to tell us how cute my girls look in their boots! I’ve heard of women having ten pair of cowboy (girl?) boots and thought it seemed a bit crazy, but honestly I could wear mine everyday they’re so comfy I will have to purchase more to coordinate with other outfits! Cowboy boots are an investment, and Anderson Bean understands, that’s why they provide quality, stylish boots in an affordable mid price point. Their children’s boots start around $100 and the Macie Beans around $200. Whether you choose a hot pink zebra print style for your little princess or a dual pistol style for your rough and tumble little guy, you will be very pleased with your Anderson Beans. You might say, “but children’s feet grow so quickly” these boots will be easy to resale or pass down worth every penny.
