Alcala's History

Our history and heritage go into every stitch of our boots, shoes, and bags

Founded by Linda and Elia Alcala, the Alcala’s were born to elevate women’s footwear. As teenagers, they grew up working at the legendary family business Alcala’s Western Wear in Chicago. Ever since she could remember Linda Alcala restyled her western shirts and cowboy boots with an inspiration to create her own eclectic wardrobe, showing her first streak of rebellion against western traditional style- and foreshadowing her future as a women’s boot designer. In 2016, they launched their first boot collection, Alcala’s Footwear. They have made it their mission to design for the real women with real lives by creating a collection with different heel silhouettes such as a mid-heel to a blocked heel boot. In love with using natural cow hair leathers and other classics such as genuine python leather, Alcala’s Footwear is constructed of both traditional skills and guaranteed handmade quality.
