Alvies x Mikaela Friedman

Mikaela is a multidisciplinary artist based in Austin, Texas known for her vibrant colors and has famously painted boots for the Texas psychedelic band, Khruangbin. In Mikaela’s Hill Country studio, everything is reused and recycled into something else. This past fall she organized the Slow Fashion Festival with a team of 4 local artists to bring sustainability to the forefront of the Austin fashion scene. Her style speaks for itself, and we couldn’t be more proud to share this one-of-a-kind boot with the world.

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

1-A Toebug 

You’ll only find this beautiful stitching pattern on Alvies boots.

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.
