Alvie and Clay of Rickshaw Boots are our neighbors downtown and some super nice guys. They sell their own line of high quality cowboy boots and flip flops out of a remodeled Airstream trailer. If that's not about as Austin as it gets, I don't know what is. Go give them a visit. They carry both men and women models, will take the time to make sure your fit is right and will even ship them right to your door.
I'll let them introduce themselves:
"If you love western boots and leather flip-flops, you have to check out Austin’s newest brand, Rickshaw. Launched during SXSW, Rickshaw sells boots and flip-flops direct to its customers out of a vintage Airstream trailer on 3rd and Congress. That low overhead model gives locals and visitors the opportunity to purchase Austin’s favorite footwear at a very affordable price.
The brand is also giving back to Austin in a unique way. They started an initiative called "Buy a Pair, Grow a Pear" and a percentage of all Rickshaw sales go toward growing and distributing organic fruits and vegetables in Austin, while educating our local food shelters and families in need on the importance of a nutritious diet.
Rickshaw is opened Tuesday – Sunday and is located on 3rd and Congress, caddy corner to the J.W. Marriott. You can also shop their website at www.Rickshawboots.com."
