As part of designing the BFG boot with Billy F Gibbons of ZZ Top, we got the amazing opportunity to sit down with him and ask a few questions. Hear about Billy's lifelong experience with cowboy boots, what he thinks people who don't wear cowboy boots are missing out on, why he partnered with us to make the BFG, and some of his favorite design details of the boots.
Alvie is the founder of Alvies (makes sense, right?), a man obsessed with boots and flip-flops. He spent six years designing and selling them out of an Airstream. That time was like his vision quest, where he learned everything he could about traditional bootmaking and leatherworking in order to build the best boots and flip-flops on the planet. In addition to being our Presidente and chief product designer, he’s also our resident boot expert and dropper of knowledge on the blog.
