If we had to describe these cowboy boots in one word, we'd use "boots." Duh. "Adventure" would be a close runner up, though. These Hippo boots are rugged and exciting - the kind of boots we imagine Indiana Jones or Crocodile Dundee would wear.

While the vamp is a bold hippo skin in tan, the shaft is a deep chocolate leather, with a contrasting stitch pattern that inspires action and daring. Finally, the standard pull straps boast more of the exotic hippo as overlays.

This boot is produced exclusively for Pinto Ranch - designed and handmade all under one roof in South Texas.

This item is built from natural materials, so there may be a slight variation in appearance when compared to the provided image.
