All About The Duval

Making your way to Bar Hemingway — Hôtel Ritz, 1st Arrondissement, Paris — it’s hard not to feel out of place. You walk into a lobby dripping with gold and lush fabrics. You’re greeted by staff that manages to be welcoming while at the same time doling out a healthy dose of side eye. You walk past the sweeping grand staircase. A long hallway stretches out seemingly into infinity, flanked on either side by glass-encased clothing and jewelry display cases from the world’s most prestigious fashion houses. Need to avail yourself of the facilities? You’ll wash your hands in water that pours out of a golden goose faucet at the turn of a crystal handle.

We designed the Duval boot for exactly this kind of situation. It has the elegant sophistication of a fashion ankle boot, the soul (and sole) and heel of a cowboy boot, and the comfort of a clog. They’re your armor and your camouflage, letting you feel at home anywhere from the Ritz to the roadhouse. So you can make the meandering journey to one of Hemingway’s favorite carousing spots with the confidence of Papa himself. But at the end of the journey, you’ll still have to pay 40 Euro for a cocktail. Worth it.

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.

KICKING BACK TO THE COMMUNITY

We give back to worthy causes with each product sold through our Alvies Kicks Back program. We're currently sending a portion of Duval sales to Health Alliance for Austin Musicians and the Southern Smoke Foundation's Austin Relief Fund.
