Alife clothing and footwear reflects the heart and soul of New York City's street art culture. Launched in a Lower East Side storefront in 1999, Alife started out as a studio of sorts for NYC artists interested in experimenting with fashion and design. Since then Alife has grown into one of the key brands on the urban apparel and sneaker markets — collaborating with Nike, Timberland and other major labels on curated apparel and limited-edition shoes and sneakers. Despite its popularity among celebs (Jay-Z and Jessica Alba are fans), Alife hasn't strayed far from its humble roots: its suede sneakers, roomy t-shirts, and classic sweatshirts eschew trendiness and ostentation in favor of simplicity and comfort.
It takes a certain kind of swagger to rock a pair of high-tops. If you love the street-smart, subtly eighties look they evoke, you’ll find plenty to admire in our sale. We’ve got neutral, chukkah style desert sneakers, retro all-red half-tops, and classic designs in just about every eye-popping color and pattern imaginable. You ready to aim a little higher with your footwear this season?
Alife’s modest approach to cool streetwear and sneakers has taken the New York City-based company incredibly far since it launched more than a decade ago. Known for highly curated apparel and limited-edition sneakers — often designed in collaboration with leading sportswear brands like Nike and world-renowned street artists and deejays — Alife has become one of the key players in the fast-growing urban-apparel market. Its success has led to loyal celebrity fans ranging from Jessica Alba to Jay-Z.
