All About The Lamar

The first boot that Alvie designed was based on the ones he most often saw his grandfather wearing: premium cowhide boots with a classic toe and a cowboy heel. Aka The Real Deal. He later inherited those boots. And even though they’re over 40 years old, they look great and feel even better. The high-quality leather is beautifully aged, with some nicks and scratches to tell the story of a life well lived. Since inheriting them, Alvie has added a few more marks from his travels, adventures, and (since we’re all friends here) one or two misadventures.

The Lamar is handcrafted using the highest quality premium cowhide leather, and built with Alvies’ Fast Break-In Fit. So you can start wearing them everywhere right away, add your own marks over the years, then hand them down to someone you love.

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.
