Part of Alvies' mission is to give back by donating a portion of our sales to worthy causes. We do that through our Alvies Kicks Back program, which is dedicated to giving back to the community while celebrating people living their authentic lives. Two values we stand behind at Alvies.

Each of our boots have a Kickback Ambassador who chooses where its charitable proceeds go. We’ve carefully selected ambassadors who represent the freedom to be themselves, and who we’re proud to have representing our brand. They are people who have contributed to the culture and character of our society: artists, entrepreneurs, musicians and more.
