BACKGROUND

Ever carry multiple pairs of shoes to work? Or struggle with packing only a couple of shoes that would match everything on your trip? We did. That’s why we created Alterre, an innovative line of modular shoes for the socially conscious.

Being women ourselves, we know the best shoes are comfortable all day, versatile, and pack light. So we combined those traits with our patented technology (and a lot of insole padding) to create shoes you can interchange into over 1000 combinations. That means less production waste and more space in your closet.

All of our shoes are made with recycled plastic heels and we try to source and produce in the same community to reduce our carbon footprint. We also donate 5% of the proceeds to the women’s sex-trafficking shelter Restore NYC to help our local community. With Alterre you can look and feel great about your shoes.

 

WHAT IS YOUR INSPIRATION FOR THIS SEASON’S COLLECTION?

Join us this summer for a retro beach party. Inspired by the swinging space age on cocoa beach, we’ve incorporated the bright pop colors of vintage ads and shiny metallics inspired by the space race.

New this season are retro-modern strappy sandals perfect for a stroll by the ocean. Joining them are go-go friendly white pointed boots that you can dress up for the occasion with our interchangeable straps.

 

WHERE ARE YOU BASED?

All of our shoes are designed in our TriBeCa studio and made according to fair labor laws in Brazil.

 

WHAT MAKES YOUR COLLECTION UNIQUE?

Our shoes are interchangeable! You can mix and match the straps of our shoes with any of our shoe bases. That means you can match your go-to shoe with any outfit, transition your sandals into slides in the Fall, and save much needed closet space.
