Alvies x Brandon Owen

We found Brandon’s work at the Western Gallery in Dallas, Texas, and immediately fell in love with his contemporary western art style. The art is a fresh take on cowboys on open ranges, bucking broncos, the wild west, and is just pretty damn cool. Brandon’s art background started by making graphics for his California skateboard crew. He now lives in Nashville, TN, and designs graphics for a number of country music artists. His contemporary art style makes him a no-brainer to be included in our artist series. Here is what Brandon had to say about the Alvies Artist Series:

“The designs on the boots were inspired by some of my popular paintings from a series earlier this year. The idea came from simple sketches in my notebook that eventually became minimalist paintings. There were 10 different paintings in this series, they were on display in early 2022 in Nashville. I think the design has a little bit of punk rock with the contemporary cowboy thing that I am doing, it's perfect for this boot because it didn't take away from the boot itself, it was just a nice little addition to show some character"

Hand built. Hand painted.

Always a fan of all things hand-made, anything expressing creativity or individuality, and going out of our way to shine a light on those making their own way, we're more than proud (even a little tickled) to present the first-possibly-something-annual Alvies Artist Series. We asked nine of our favorite artists to bring our best-selling boot, The Rainey, to life in their own unique story. We're proud to show-off their work of art, and offer (extremely) limited pairs (some sizes are 1 of 1) for sale, only at

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.
