Alvies x David Regone

David captures the character of a city block, or storefront like no one we’ve come across. Maybe it’s because he spent his early years working with New York Architecture firms? Either way, we’re glad he decided leave that racket behind, and chase illustration full-time. His meticulous renditions of some of our favorite dives around Austin drew us to him and his work. David currently lives and works both in Austin, TX, and on the road in his converted van/escape pod. Here is what he had to say about his boot design:

“The inspiration for my Alvies boot design came from my love of Cowboy culture and appreciation for the American Southwest. The boot displays a chili-pepper red bandana wrapped around the heel, functioning as a nod to the iconic symbol of a bygone era. The design is meant to be playful and add a bit of spice to one's step.”

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 Alvies.com.

Fast Break-In Fit 

Our boots break in quickly thanks to a wider toe. 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.
