The symbol of vigilance and wariness is in West Africa is the Akoben or The "War Horn". The Akoben is a horn used to sound a battle cry. But, the story behind this boot is a conversation about boots and a particular brand my daughter was looking at. What could we do with a boot and be different? Thus the H & K War Horn Boots was created. This is similar design from the Adinkra Backpack here: Crown Adinkra Backpack.
