Billy F Gibbons, the renowned American rock legend and lead guitarist/vocalist of ZZ Top, is teaming up with Alvies to introduce an exclusive collection of his & her western boots. The much-anticipated boots are scheduled for release this week, marking their second collaboration.
Alvies, under the ownership of Alvie Faulkenbery V, boasts a rich Texan heritage spanning five generations. Their boots are meticulously handcrafted, featuring top-quality leather imported from Leon, Mexico, the heart of bootmaking and leatherworking craftsmanship. Each boot is fashioned from 100% full cowhide upper durable leather, showcasing a ¾ Goodyear welt for exceptional durability and a roomier toe box, providing instant comfort as if they were already broken in.
In a gesture of giving back, a portion of the proceeds from every sale of the BFG boots will contribute to the National Independent Venue Foundation (NIVF) through Alvies’ Kicks Back program. The NIVF is dedicated to supporting and preserving independent music venues across the United States, channeling funds into emergency relief, educational and community programs, employee training, and economic development initiatives.
