Alvies x Nora Burke

Nora is an Austin-based visual artist and educator who draws influence from her background in textile design and her love of folk art. She’s an Austin native who studied textile design at the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York. Her work explores symmetry and highlights the common imagery that connects textile traditions from diverse cultures.

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.
