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.
Hey, you can’t wear wingtips every day. And for those times you want to take a break from the hard-bottoms, you’ll find a great selection of sneakers here. Highlights include low-tops, high-tops, and chukkas from PF Flyers, Alife, and PRO-Keds.
Add some panache to your footwear with our sale of colorful kicks. Spice up your office outfit with classic derby shoes from Vanishing Elephant, available in a deep burgundy, or go with a pastel, like the Daniel Oxfords from Vintage Shoe Company. Need something a little more casual? We’ve got you covered there, too, with blue, green, and red suede and mesh runners from New Balance, bold red high tops from PF Flyers, and turquoise boots from Native. This winter, kick your style into high gear — and there’s no better place to start than with this sale.

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.
