Part of Alvies' mission is to give back by donating a portion of our sales to worthy causes. We do that through our Alvies Kicks Back program, which is dedicated to giving back to the community while celebrating the people who make Austin what it is.

Each of our boots and flip-flops will have a Kickback Ambassador who chooses where its charitable proceeds go. We’ve carefully selected ambassadors who represent the best of what we love about Austin, and who we’re proud to have representing our brand. They are people who have contributed to the culture and character of the city: artists, entrepreneurs, musicians and more.
