Handmade shoes
designed to last a life time.

You no longer need to use and throw your favourite walking shoe. We are the first to offer a fully repairable GORE-TEX walking shoe.

Everything, including the GORE-TEX membrane, can be repaired

We at ALFA think we should be better at repairing our things. Even if a part of the shoe is worn out, it does not mean that the whole shoe has to be thrown away and replaced with new shoes. On the contrary. Now you can choose handmade quality shoes where all parts can be repaired, and thus can be kept for life. That's great news for you, your pocketbook and the environment.

ALFA For Life™ - the start of a sustainability journey

We have launched a sustainability journey we call ALFA For Life™. In short, this means that we want to make more sustainable solutions and products. This is a never-ending effort, about all the small and big improvements we can make together to reduce our impact on the environment and climate.

As the owner of an ALFA For Life™ product, we promise you:

- At least a five-year warranty (with the possibility of extension if the shoes are sent for service after five years).

- All parts of the shoes can be replaced if necessary.

- It will always make more sense to repair them than to buy new, equivalent shoes.

- Submission for repair will be simple, and most repairs can be carried out within a few days.

Impact A/P/S GTX - The hiking boot that lasts a lifetime

ALFA's most important contribution to the use-and-throw mentality for now is the Impact A/P/S GTX mountain boot. It is nothing less than the world's first fully repairable GORE-TEX touring shoe. The shoe is handmade, and designed and developed with a unique construction that makes it possible to replace and repair every single part of the shoe. In this way, your best hiking shoes can last a lifetime.

Extended warranty and climate compensation

In order to be able to offer you good support throughout the life of your new ALFA For Life shoes, we want you to register your product.

When you register your product, we will give the product an extended warranty against manufacturing defects and deficiencies of 5 years! And if the shoes are sent in for a 5-year service after 5 years, we will extend the warranty by an additional 3 years. Upon registration we will send you a reminder about these services and give you other tips to keep your shoes in good condition so that you can use them for many years to come.

Upon registration ALFA will also climate compensate for the production and transport emissions of CO2 from the shoes.

Service and Repairs

The most important factor to a shoes environmental contribution is their longevity. To reduce the footprint of the products, ALFA will offer service and repairs. Impact A/P/S GTX is the first product where ALFA will offer full service and repair of all parts. This means that together we can make the shoes last almost forever.

Service and repair will be done at shoemaker Våge in Gjøvik. Only original parts will be used in the repair and replaced parts will be recycled.
