All About The Rio Grande

Joan Jett. Elvis Presley. Johnny Cash. They all have one thing in common. Well, they all rocked, so really two things. The second thing is this: They all knew the seemingly effortless cool that comes with wearing black cowboy boots.

To honor the rebels, rockstars and reprobates who don the dark, our Rio Grande corded cowhide boots are black. Black as the night. Black as a crow in a coal mine. Black as a midnight funeral. They’re the perfect boot to pull on when you want to let everyone know you’re calmly confident, come what may. Or if you need something to pair with that vintage black motorcycle jacket.

Fast Break-In Fit 

Our boots break in quickly thanks to a wider toe box. After just a few days, they’ll feel like an old friend.

Blue heel stripe

Why? It lets everyone know you roll with Alvies. “If there’s no blue stripe, it’s not worth the hype.” — Willy Shakespeare

Handmade in León, Mexico

Alvies boots and leather flip-flops are made by one of the oldest and most respected bootmakers in León, the bootmaking capital of the world. History fact: León has been a shoemaking hub since 1645. Many of the bootmaking OGs in our ethical factory have been crafting boots by hand for decades. They use traditional methods and are paid a fair wage for their skills.
