Perfect fit right out of the box like they were already broken in. Definitely buying another pair in the near future.

All About The Congress

Having a pair of Teju lizard boots in your closet makes you a social chameleon, able to blend in wherever you go. Wear your lizards with almost anything to almost anywhere and never feel over- or under-dressed. For instance, you can wear The Congress to:

  • Your wedding
  • Your divorce hearing
  • Backyard barbecues
  • A meeting with your congressman
  • A meeting with your bail bondsman
  • Your graduation
  • The Grammys
  • Day drinking
  • Night drinking
  • A job interview
  • A first date
  • A last date
  • Flamenco dancing
  • A St. Patrick’s Day house party, paired with holey jeans and a sleeveless green pearl snap shirt, where you attempt to do a jig and sing Drunken Sailor while barely holding onto a bottle of Irish whiskey (just as a hypothetical)

Product Details

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.

Alvies Kicks Back: Juan Meza

Juan is the owner of the beloved East Austin restaurant Juan in a Million, where he’s been dishing out strong Tex Mex and even stronger handshakes since 1980. Back in our rowdy youth, you could often find the Alvies crew there on a Sunday curing hangovers with breakfast tacos.

Juan is a pillar of the Austin community and one of the nicest dudes around. He has chosen Con Mi MADRE to receive a portion of all sales from The Congress as part of Alvies Kicks Back. They empower the mothers of young Latinas through education and support services that increase preparedness, participation, and success in their educational journey.

    Best boots in Texas!

    This is by far the most comfortable — and stylish — pair of boots I've ever worn and I own several other brands. I've had them for a few months now and can vouch that they get more comfortable with each wear. The quality is top-notch, so you definitely get what you pay for. Even better, proceeds for The Congress boots support an amazing cause!

    Amazing fit, Sharp, love my Alvies

    I got these 3 months ago after a long 4 years of ariats. Best and most comfortable pair of boots I’ve ever owned. Once you try them on you realize how much thought has gone into their overall fit to your entire lower leg. I get comments on them every time I wear them out.

    Wonderful Craftsmanship

    They (Alvies) makes it easy. I have exotic boots 30 years old. The python skin I bought from them are wonderful. The craftsmanship is some of the best I have seen. I will come back to Alvies again and again for that perfect fit.
