All Alterre shoes are produced using a fair labor manufacturer in Brazil and we have visited the factory ourselves and made sure that everyone there was happy and healthy.
We reduce both out leather and plastic waste by making our heels with recycled plastic and using a laser cutter for our patterns. Most of our components are also sourced within the same city as our factory, which helps reduce our carbon footprint and support the local economy.
We love working with our factory because it is managed by a woman and also has a program that sponsors any worker that wants to move to a management track. If the person who packs the shoes into the boxes wants to go up the chain, the factory will train them and even pay for qualification programs!
As we grow, we commit to being socially responsible and have been awarded the Butterfly Mark from Positive Luxury in recognition of our excellence in sustainability.

What makes our shoes so unique is that you can change the straps between heel heights. This way you can actually customize your shoe to match the occasion. We personally test every design for comfort because we know the best shoes don't leave blisters.
So why aren't the heels interchangeable? We avoided this design because it sacrifices comfort. When you move the heel height on a fixed shoe it effects the balance and fit. Think about the weird feeling you get walking when the rubber on your heel wears off. It's because the heel has changed heights.
These fashion forward ankle boots are season-less. The sturdy mid-heel is made for all day wear and don't be afraid of the pointed toe! We designed it a bit longer in the front so your toes remain pinch-free.
