Alvies x El Baker

Introducing El Baker, the enchanting paint sorceress from Austin, who's been transforming Texas into a whimsical masterpiece, one delightful paint twirl at a time. And guess what? Now we're graced with the privilege of having her wield her magic on her own exclusive Guadalupe boot – available in extremely limited quantity.

Her color palette? Oh, it's got the spirit of Texas on its own. Bold, a tad spicy, and sometimes as unpredictable as trying to figure out if it's boots or flip-flops weather. Because, let's be honest, in the art world and in Texas, a little unpredictability just adds that extra kick! Here is what El had to say about her inspiration for this artist series:

"One of my favorite things about creating art is mixing things you wouldn't expect -- in some of my paintings, I have photos layered with Impressionistic brush strokes, or in this case, I paired rugged cactus with midcentury shapes. I wanted the boots to be a combination of western cowgirl chic, paired with pops of bright color that you wouldn't find in the desert. I think these boots are fun and approachable, and someone could wear them to a rodeo, on a stroll through Terlingua, or just around town. Each pair is a little quirky and unique, and they were painted from our second-floor bedroom, with natural light from a big window while I listened to Leon Bridges, Maggie Rogers and Tyler Childers."

El Baker, Austin, TX

Hand painted. Hand built.

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.

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.
